In the words of a student of one of these wonderful fashion photography courses and fine art nude photography courses run by Bruce Smith. “Some things you just can’t learn from fashion or fine art nude photography How To Shoot Books, Youtube Videos or DVD’s”

I could have bought all the fashion and figure photography books on Amazon, and not learned what I did in a few days with Bruce, which he himself learned from decades of successful work in the industry.  In September 2015 I joined Bruce in a chateau near Bordeaux, France for a four-day, one-to-one workshop in ‘sensual fashion.’

We had two models, an excellent hair and make-up artist, and a photogenic, characterful location.  By the end, without doubt, the course had left an indelible mark on my stylistic development and competency as a photographer, for which I’m very grateful.

Bruce is obviously an accomplished photographer and renowned authority, but he is also an excellent instructor and personable coach—an invaluable combination.  Much of what I learned from him was through his selflessly attentive coaching: unique feedback about how I performed in the situations he’d set up with the models, location and brief.

Irreplaceable and empowering, he broke down technical issues in straightforward language, and could immediately see and explain what I was doing and how it could be improved.

I grew a lot as a photographer over just a few days.  By the end, he shadowed me on shots that I set up. I decided to take the course with Bruce to explore a part of photography I was interested in, but found very inaccessible looking at the sector from the outside.

Previously, I had started to professionalize my passion for photography, and eventually produced documentary photo essays that were later published.

As a journalistic style, this focused on observation and visual documentation of a social issue but wanting to develop in a different area of photography, to have beautiful images and to eventually become commercially viable, I looked to begin developing in fashion and figure photography.

However, my previous documentary photography skills were mismatched for fashion and figure. Any photographer can take a pleasing photo of a model, but it requires difficult development to much higher levels if you want to break through in the industry.

To generate and capture the life and story of a shot in fashion, lingerie or figure photography, which makes all the difference between strong but mediocre shots and first rate shots which the industry expects, demands different skills from which most photographers have or think about, which are neither innate nor obvious.

So, I wanted to learn directly from an expert.

After some time with Bruce, I understand these different skills, these powerful nuances, and now have a strong foundation to continue my professional and artistic development in this area.

Im all packed, double checked all of my paper work, etc etc.  Hopefully Ill have a smooth trip.  I have so much kit to cart around in taxis, trains, taxis, taxi and through airports so Ive packed my kit as economically as is possible and to ensure I have all of the essential kit that I need but don’t excede my baggage allowance.  

I did have a major problem to deal with a few days ago that has been resolved now after hours of calls and messages to and from a model agency and my client, whom happened to be away on holiday, so I did not get replies to urgent messages until it was almost too late, but all is well that ends well.  Ill not go into it now because its bad energy that can stay behind me.  

This morning I will finalize a couple of bits of administration then off to catch the train at midday after an hour just relaxing and getting my head around the 48 hour journey from home to Nha Trang.   

For those interested, I will show you and list all of the kit that I am taking when I arrive and Aqmal my assistant unpacks it all and lays it out ready for our first day shooting on 20th.

I will also be going over the whole pre production process from the initial calls re being commissioned to shoot for this client a third time. 

To be continued as my journey progresses.  bye for now.

Bruce
