“An extremely useful experience for who’s looking for an educational path in fashion photography.
Personally, I’ve found this workshop greatly rewarding. The added value in this case is not only actively participating in the fashion week, but the continuous feedbacks from the team’s photographers. And the invaluable revision at the end of each day, which enabled a constant improvement of my images, day after day. Having by your side some of the best professionals with years of experience in this field is surely a plus compared with other courses I attended.
Personally I’ve choose the backstage experience. Having to face right away the issues related to beauty photography during and after the make up and hair sesions, the management of light indoors with mixed daylight/tungsten/neon/led and continuous/flash lights, the need to develop a fast coordination to be able to photograph the model ready to step on the runway trying to isolate her from messy contexts, and not disturbing the show’s organization. I’ve really learned a lot and in this field you cannot rely on post-production help, images need to be perfect in camera as retouching time is really minimal. Nothing better to fastly enhance your shooting. A real 360° training experience”.
Riccardo Bottero

“I’ve attended the Runway Photo Workshop during the menswear fashion week, a more “relaxed” fashion week compared to the womenswear one, and more available for those who, like me, are approaching fashion photography for the first time. The experience has been absolutely outstanding and interesting because, contrary to those workshops that are experienced far from the places where the action happens, in this case you work in the field, shoulder to shoulder with those professionals who have been working within the field for years, or even for decades. I suggest this workshop to those who want to develop their capacity of taking precise pictures quikly. Infact the post-production process is very little in this particular case. The framing, the exposure and the model’s figure have to be perfect and caught in few fractions of a second. I’ve learnt a lot. Respect for the professionals who work within this niche field!.

    …and it’s not a “commercial” workshop where you are in a big group of 20, 30 or 40 other people. This full immersion is for few people who are the main focus for the tutors and the fee that may seem to be high, actually is really low”.
