We are starting a new class for Project 52 PRO – Summer to Summer…
And at this point we have 5 openings left. You can sign up or get more information at the Project 52 site.
I thought I may share these images with you. A recent assignment from the current Project 52 PROS. The assignment was to shoot something to fit this catalog page. The page was furnished, along with information on the products we were needing. As you can see, the photographers stepped up pretty well.
This is not the usual “shoot something pretty” online photo class. We give you real world assignments, and expect only the highest quality images be submitted for our weekly critiques.
Some of these photographers had never shot to a layout before, nor had ever been given a ‘brief’ for shooting a photograph to specific requirements before Project 52.
It is hard to break into this business, and many of the old ‘mentored through assisting’ paths are not easily available. Project 52 tries to fill a bit of that gap by working with assignments that are similar to the type of work a commercial photographer may get in the course of a year.
We are also mixing in a lot of business information… again this is reality based client work, and not silly marketing tactics.
We shoot people, product, location, catalog, still life, food and more. A taste of it all with real world learning in each assignment.
If you are interested in this sort of continuous learning, check out the Project 52 page – and remember that we have a free version as well.
