OPEN LIGHT: MODELING, POSING and ETIQUETTE
Lars Kommienezuspadt and his mentor, Jim Gavenus, held the first OPEN LIGHT workshop in 2012 in Scranton, PA bringing their unique style of exclusively available light photography to attendees, both intermediate and professionals. Since then, the classes have expanded covering a range of subjects from career strategies, to publishing, but none are as popular as MODELING, POSING and ETIQUETTE.
MODELING, POSING and ETIQUETTE has sold out on the east coast several times, as well as in the midwest, being offered in the Twin Cities last March. For the first time, this comprehensive workshop will be held in Los Angeles, Sunday October 19th. This class is available to models, photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists and production assistants and spends ample time with all areas of the professional responsibilities and expectations of the fashion and beauty industry.
Join Lars Kommienezuspadt and special guests for an afternoon of conversation, education and hands on shooting with guidance from some of the top talents in LA. All participants of MODELING, POSING and ETIQUETTE will leave with invaluable portfolio work and knowledge that’s been cold pressed from almost fifteen years of experience. Visit our OPEN LIGHT Facebook group. Register soon. This workshop fills at only twelve attendees. First come, first serve.
Horror and Undead Photography
Long, long before a career as an editorial fashion photographer I explored a variety of genres trying to find my voice as an artist. If there was every one subject I loved shooting as much as fashion and beauty, it was the antithesis of that. Gruesome, disturbing horror.
Memento Mori is an event that gives horror enthusiasts an opportunity to memorialize themselves as the decayed, dismembered and undead in a true to film photography event. Professional SF/X make-up artists will tailor whatever horrific nightmares you can imagine. The Memento Mori team will provide a set complete with mock grave site and wardrobe styling.
