fashion-portraits-nudes-photography-training
Bruce Smith’s photography courses, workshops and 1-2-1 private photography training are not cheap but they are exceptionally good value for money.
 
How are they good value for money ?, you may ask…
 
Answer.
 
Bruce uses only professional stylists, hair and make up artists and agency models for his courses.
 
Imagine what it costs to put together a high caliber team in order to give you a course that includes a professional fashion shoot experience.
 
 
Typical creative team and talent costs.
 
Agency model fee………………………. £1500 per day
Fashion stylist fee ………………………..£ 500 per day
Hair and make up artist fee…………… £ 350 per day
Studio hire……………………………………£ 500 per day
Location fee………………………………….£1000 per day
Normal Bruce Smith fee to shoot……..£1500 per day
 
 
On top of the above you also benefit from Bruce’s 37 years experience.
 
His courses on average are £250 to £350 per day depending upon which type of course you take..
 
 
With the above figures involved in setting up a professional shoot in mind, decide for yourself if our courses are exceptionally good value for money.
 
Researching into other courses you will find that they are often not using professional teams of talent as well as are often not taught by active profesional fashion photographers or they are relativly new to the industry.
 
How can people teach a master class in how to shoot professional fashion photography when they are not actively producing professional fashion assignments and are not experts with extensive experience.
 
Bruce’s experience has been vast, shooting advertising fashion, editorial fashion and commercial fashion.
 
The productions he has produced have taken to him to most parts of the world, for all of his fashion shoots he looks after every aspect of production, along with having to produce fashion images that work for his clients, very often under impossible conditions.

Dear Bruce:
I would like to thank you (and your excellent team) for a thoroughly enjoyable and invaluable learning experience over the last couple of days. It has exceeded all expectations.
 
I feel the workshop has improved my confidence and the shots I was producing at the end were noticeably better than when I started.
 
I will definitely be looking to attend some more of your workshops in the future.

Who is fashion and portrait photographer Bruce Smith

Whenever the world’s ‘Top Fashion and Celebrity Portrait Photographers’ are discussed, one name which is always mentioned with immense respect and admiration is Bruce Smith.

His 35 years professional fashion and portrait photography experience

Fine art books of some of Bruce’s contemporary fashion, nudes and portrait photography

Bruce has recently gone through his astounding archive of images to produce a new fine art book titled “130k Words in Pictures”, which contains a collection of his best and most iconic photographs. It comes as no surprise that it has already been described as a “classic” by many of his peers within the industry.

Contemporary Portrait Photography by Bruce Smith

A portfolio of a photographer that specialises at creating beautiful portraits for woman, portraiture that reflect their true beauty and love that they are both inside and out.

Portraits created especially for woman themselves, portraits that reflect who they are or who they wish to be, the portraits could be for their partners. The photographic portrait images of people can be what would call contemporary portraits, portraits, make over portraits, cover girl portraits, fashion style portraits, boudoir styled portraits, erotic portraits of woman or woman and their partner or fine art nude portraits etc.  Call the portrait photography genre as you wish.

In Bruce’s mind the creating of portrait photographs of people is a part of who he is.  His natural ability to create a wonderful connection between himself and his subjects, his openness which allows his subjects to express themselves as they wish or feel to the camera lens without the feeling of being judged, a very important attribute for any photographic portrait artist.

Bruce loves to bring what he calls “Believable Theatre” to his portrait photography sessions, so what may appear to be a little bizarre or strange becomes believable art or theatre in the final images.. Most important is that the client/subject has the most amazing experience during their portrait session. This will reflect in the final ages.

Here at the studio or outside on location around the Cateau Fengari, where most of Bruce’s portraiture photo sessions take place, when not shooting portraits in Paris or Monaco, (these can be arranged by special appointment.)  you are made to feel at home in a friendly atmosphere, if you like you can drink champagne and enjoy a lovely freshly prepared lunch.

We will help you with selecting our best outfits, give you a fashion, hair and make up make over so you feel and look amazing even before we begin creating your portrait art. photographs.
