WHAT TO EXPECT:
Watch as Nik masterfully explores the world of photography and shows you the methods and techniques he adopts for winning Gold Class Awards time and time again.
Learn with him as he shows you the most explosive and innovative methods of leaving the competition in ashes – forget dust – Ashes!
Experience live demonstrations of absolutely everything. Nothing is too much or little, too long or too short. Everything is laid bare and explained in such an easy way that with no effort at all you will fit it all into your normal workflow.
Lead the field and find out the amazing way Nik gets clients and destinations shoots day after day and always at HIS price!
The Power is in your hands as Nik will cover and uncover:
Do you SEE the light? What color is it? What is the direction, quality, and type of light? How does it make you FEEL?
Nik discusses the characteristics of light and most importantly HOW we use light to mold and contour and wrap around a human form to best show the most delicate of textures and three dimensionality. The end result? Depth and Emotion. Thus you create a feeling of being there – of actually living, feeling and breathing it all in.
This is it – you learn within minutes, yes literally minutes, how you can, with just a simple technique make a 2D image like 3D one which is full of life, emotion and grit. Just like the master artists did with their finest creations and who still today continue to do so. This will be the foundation for everything else.
Here is a brief outline:
Day One: 10AM – 5PM
Nik Pekridis will start the class off with a welcome presentation.
The core of photography will be covered: from basic to advanced to get you up and running in no time. You will have a lot of AHA moments. Things will click into place.
Some of the things you will learn are lighting, molding light to body forms, posing singles, couples, plus size brides, a tall and short couple, using off camera flash and continuous lighting, shooting for the product, PJ storytelling, camera techniques and best practice workflow and much much more!
Critique of images – please bring couple of your best images on a USB stick. The critique is anonymous and students will find the information to be extremely helpful and positive to their continued growth and development.
Day Two 930AM – 5PM
This will be a fun day of photographing at a picturesque location. Natalie Licini’s studio is in a historic castle in Highland Park, just 40 minutes outside of New York City. In addition to the spectacular indoor photos, we’ll be able to shoot on the grounds of this historic castle.
There will be 2 couples. You will get the opportunity to see how Nik beautifully poses, directs and shoots.
This will be followed by the students practicing and building the skills of what they’ve learnt over the two days by posing and photographing the models. This will be all about the students and developing their skill-set.
Please bring your cameras on this day along with 1 or 2 of your favorite lenses, and if you wish wireless transmitters and video lights.
This is also the Eve that everyone will eat/drink in the evening together…some of you till the early hours of the morning lol
Day Three 10AM – 5PM
This is the classroom day where the following subjects shall be covered my Nik and Natalie;
Branding and brand identity, workflow, post-production, album designs, sales & marketing. You’ll be able to see first hand how a high end studio is owned and operated from the inside.
Towards the latter portion of the day there will be an open Q&A session so get your brains working on what you want to ask asap!
Please bring a laptop with Lightroom or Photoshop if you wish Nik to assist you with anything.
The timetable and structure of the workshop may change.
Day 2 – the hands on photography day may be switched to day 3 and is dependent upon the weather conditions at the time. We will let you all know by the end of play on day 1.
