About this event

A fashion photograph is about a lifestyle, desire, fantasy, sensuality, and, unavoidably, the state of commerce. It is about wanting to be the person inside the clothes or wanting to have one’s life shown within the image. It is also about identity, subculture, and the desire to belong. 

If you are a student, an aspiring photographer, or working professional, building a fashion portfolio that aspires to this standard can be daunting. Thomas Werner, author of the book The Fashion Image, will share his insight into each of these aspects of fashion and how you can create innovative shoot concepts to help you create compelling fashion campaigns and achieve your goals.

All are welcome to attend this free, public lecture! Please reserve your seat here.
