One of the biggest hurdles for many makeup artists starting their career is putting together a strong portfolio. A portfolio is an important tool used by artists to show their work to potential clients. Pictures must be professional, well-lit, properly “finished” representations of not only an artist’s style, but the work they want to be doing. Portfolio Build offers a creative environment designed specifically for the purpose of creating images for a makeup artist. Day 1 focuses on understanding, designing, and developing a camera ready makeup. Day 2 is the photo shoot. Students receive high-resolution, touched-up images of their work. We offer two Portfolio Build Workshops: Beauty and Editorial.
Overview of Portfolio Build
- understanding fundamentals of beauty and editorial for camera
- work with professional models and photographers
- create strong images that sell you as an artist
- receive images of your work
- work on set and see the process of a photo shoot
The first day of the workshop will focus on designing and creating the look for the shoot. You will work closely with Terri to develop story boards and go-by’s. On the day of the photo shoot you will be guided by Terri and the photographer to make sure your images are strong and marketable for you as an artist. You will receive a 30% discount on product while in class. Class is limited to 4 students.
