After a successful month of spearheading photo shoots with MESHUGGAH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, MISS MAY I, DRAGONFORCE, OVERKILL, WATAIN, BEHEMOTH, BARONESS, and THE AGONIST, completing two back-to-back magazine cover shoots (Outburn and Hails Horns), all the while having one cover already on shelves (Hails Horns), photographer Jeremy Saffer will head out to Los Angeles for his first West Coast music photography seminar in conjunction with SoundCheck Hollywood.
The two-day seminar and workshop will focus on portrait work with musicians and will cover the entire process — from setting up the photo shoot, scouting locations, posing, different types of lighting and lighting equipment for different situations, shooting endorsements, promotional images, CD layouts, and magazine layouts, to walking attendees through the process of what to do post-shoot, invoicing, getting repeat business, and even how to price yourself. Many other business aspects of being a professional photographer within the music industry will be discussed.
The first day will be the official seminar day, where all of the above is taught in the morning, as well as a lightroom and photoshop post processing tutorial. In the afternoon of day one, attendees will complete mock-photo shoots experimenting with different types of lighting equipment, lighting set-ups, poses, etc. Jeremy has also expanded the music photography business section even more, and will also include private portfolio critique for attendees that specifically request it.
On the second day of the seminar, attendees will experience a hands-on photo shoot of special guest bands done first by Jeremy (as a real-life example), and next by themselves! Attendees will take over and complete a real photo shoot with the band in various locations.
Hopeful attendees must act now; there are only 10 tickets available to this seminar!
On June 23 at 6 p.m., SoundCheck Hollywood will re-open to the public. Jeremy will be on site signing copies of his book “Bring The Noise”, as well as limited-edition prints and some prints exclusive to the seminar weekend.
