Promotional feature with Fujifilm
We all know the quality of your photography can make or break a blog or Instagram feed. That’s why Marie Claire has teamed up with Fujifilm to offer eight beauty bloggers, photographers and social influencers the chance to take part in a one-off masterclass on Wednesday 27th March.
The Marie Claire x Fujifilm Beauty workshop is a day for photographers and bloggers interested in learning more about the world of shooting for beauty. Whether it’s processes and technicalities, working with make-up artists and a professional photographer, get ready to learn more about beauty photography with some great hands-on experience.
Set in a cool studio location in Shoreditch, East London, this one-day workshop covers all the techniques you’ll need including; shutter-speeds, aperture, ISO settings and much more. You’ll get the chance to use the latest Fujifilm camera and find out why it’s miles better than shooting on your mobile.
What you’ll learn on the day
+ Intro to lighting techniques
+ Photography 101
+ Behind-the-scenes insight on photographing a styled beauty shoot
+ Creative ways to tackle a photography brief
By the end of the session you’ll be creating perfect Insta-ready images and the words ‘How do they make it look like that?’ will be a thing of the past.
On hand to offer their industry-honed assistance will be Marie Claire’s own Holly Rains and Sunil Makan – Holly oversees all the digital and social output and manages our celebrity content, having worked with the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Fanning, Renée Zellweger and Bella Hadid.
Sunil is Marie Claire’s associate editor and all round visual guru – who has worked on a number of high-profile video and cover shoots, featuring a mix of up-and-coming models and A-list stars.
Also present on the day will be Fujifilm beauty photographer and director Wayne Johns, who has worked with the likes of L’Oreal, Vogue, GQ, Rimmel and Nike. Best known for his crisp and emotive imagery, Wayne has gained international recognition as a ‘master of lighting techniques’ and his artistic approach. He’ll be joined by celebrity and catwalk photography expert Kirstin Sinclair.
The whole team will give you an insight into their careers – and share valuable insider tips to help you make the most of your pictures.
To make sure you get as much attention as possible, we are limiting this event to just eight people. Each Fujifilm masterclass ticket will cost £30 for a four-hour session, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
At the end of it, you’ll walk away with a free Fuijfilm memory card so you can upload your images straightaway – and get those likes soaring through the roof.
