2 Day Fashion Shoot Experience in Paris France 

We are packing our suitcases to capacity with cameras, clothing and accessories and driving to the airport to fly to an amazing venue in Paris, France that has been used by Vogue and Harpers Bazaar for their editorial shoots because it's a truly amazing shoot location.  We're flying out on 3rd February 2017 to our fourth 2 day Photo Shoot Experience that we've held over the past 3 years.  It's being held on Saturday 4th February 2017 with a post processing Workshop held by Ellen on Sunday 5th February 2017 and there are only 13 Photographer spaces (including Ellen's) so don't miss out on a place as they will go fast.

This is not your usual photography workshop. It is hosted by internationally-exhibited artist and photographer Ellen McDermott who will show you exactly how she creates her images and the post processing techniques she uses too.  Our intention is to take the social recreation of a workshop and add it to real fashion shoot environment , inviting pro, semi-pro and beginner photographers to be part of a splendidly arranged, editorial quality production.

This is a bridge between a workshop and a real fashion shoot, and an amazing opportunity for you to extend the range of your abilities and expand your artistry. You will gain confidence and experience – not forgetting lots of  fun – working with gorgeous models and mingling with other creatives in a professional, high-energy environment. By the end of the day, you may find yourself with a whole new portfolio of images, and unlike other events of this kind, you'll have full commercial rights release to everything you produce.

Romantic styled Paris Photo shoot

With the experience of our past photo shoots  we're now taking over the baroque beauty of an authentically decorated house with the atmosphere and setting of 18-19th century property.  From the soft patina furniture to the staged conservatory every detail and prop has been orchestrated and styled by the owners who have held Vogue and Harpers Bazaar Shoots there in the past.   We welcome working with the incredible Parisian Stylist Siham Zoulten who studied in the Paris-Sorbonne University and who has worked for both film and stage and creates her own amazing designs too.

A LOCATION OOZING CHARACTER.

Feast your eyes on our newest location!  Our Paris Esprit Maison Boudoir Venue is decorated with taste and style in original furniture and all the props have been chosen with care.   It is the only shoot location of it's kind in Paris, France and is conveniently situated beside the train station with a good connection to the airport.  We can help you with information on hotels or B & B's nearby if required.

We are fusing old world aesthetic with modern day couture in this Photo Shoot Experience.   When we bring in our expert team, our lighting, our beautifully styled models; two French,  two Irish, and designer clothing from the leaders of contemporary fashion and style along with our bustling group of creative stylists and MUA's  you will have the perfect mix for fashion photography dreamland.

This is a two day Photo Shoot Experience and spaces are limited to 13 photographers (including Ellen's ). The first day is for the photo shoot in Esprit Maison Boudoire and the following day will cover a morning of post procession editing tips from Ellen who will show you exactly how she edits her images using Photoshop and textures and layers.  There will be 30 minutes focus on business and marketing for those interested at the end of the second day.  

DATE 

Saturday 4th February 2017

Saturday will have four models in four locations with lighting set up throughout the venue with photographers rotating and shooting in groups of three with each model.  The day begins at 10am and shooting starts from 11am to 6pm with 1 hour break for lunch.  Before the shoot begins Ellen will discuss her process, inspiration, use of colour and composition as well as the posing of the models and information on the lighting we will be using.

As mentioned above the second day will entail a morning in a nearby hotel conference room from 10am to 1pm where Ellen will cover her post processing and editing techniques and also tips on business and marketing from 1.00 to 1.30pm for those interested.

During the week after the shoot Ellen will record on video her post processing and editing skills from shots taken on the day and will send you the detailed video recordings explaining step by step how she edited the images from start to finish using Photoshop.  

Your place on this amazing Photo Shoot Experience includes a light breakfast on the morning of the photo shoot and a gourmet lunch at midday.  On the second day tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided during the creative editing workshop.  You also have full right releases to all of your images.

WE TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING

How the day will run:    On the day of the Photo Shoot Experience photographers meet in Maison Espirit Boudoir for a light breakfast and introductions.  We discuss the day ahead while styling commences and take a walk around to familiarise yourselves with the venue.  We aim to start shooting at 11am (a more specific itinerary will be in your info pack)  We break for lunch and continue shooting until the late afternoon at 6pm when a group shot of everyone attending will be taken.  The day is strategically scheduled so you can just relax and let us take care of all the organisation whilst you indulge in shooting till your heart’s content.

AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME

This is more than a workshop, this is a beautifully organised, editorial quality set up and you will not be on your own wondering how to fill every moment.  On the day you get assistance, some guidance and help but at the end of the day this is your opportunity to create your very own work.  Ellen will discuss her way of working with models and give you inspiration and guidance on posing the models and the use of the lighting set ups we will be using throughout the venue.  You are of course free to use natural daylight to shoot with and  feel free to bring along any equipment you wish to use on the day.  The Fashion Shoot Experience allows pro, semi pros and beginners to create quality work for submission, exhibition or any commercial use with full rights release to all images you have taken.

We send you a full info PDF in advance of the shoot which covers everything in more detail:  including the full itinerary, lighting we will be using, location of shoot and location of post processing workshop, photographs of the models and clothing/dresses, what to bring, and an overview of what you can expect to get from the Experience.  We can help with hotels nearby if required.  The venue is 5 minutes from the train station with  links to the airport for easy access.
