LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION -Join MUSE BEAUTY for a three-day educational photo shoot workshop in San Francisco, CA. You will experience a professional photo shoot on multiple levels from verbal conception to creating your story-board, practice application to the final execution of two portfolio-ready beauty images. Each day you will both assist and shoot in the am or pm sessions. Your team will consist of a professional photographer, lighting assistant, hairstylist, two models, a wardrobe stylist from MORNING GLORY BOUTIQUE along with another attendee as your assistant. In addition you will have access to three seasoned industry educational mentors on-hand to help coach you each step of the way from the beginning to your finished images.

The experience of working with a complete photo shoot team is both exciting and essential in developing one's resume. Learning how to perform both as a great assistant to the lead artist is invaluable. The flow and format of the weekend will be your complete photoshoot experience.

Your course begins with a welcoming "MEET & GREET" on the evening before the class. This will be a great networking event to meet all attendees, photographer, hairstylist, assistants, wardrobe stylists, the MUSE BEAUTY team and your educational mentors.

Friday will begin with photo shoot inspiration & communication, story-boarding, choosing your team and in the afternoon, application practice.

Saturday and Sunday will be the execution of your shoot, both as assistant and lead artist.

You will receive a total of five professional digital images for use on your website, portfolio and social media - two digital images of each model you work on and a personal head shot.

San Francisco is the perfect city to host our event. We will be working in a studio in the Mission District, considered to be the heart of the city. The Mission has a very unique artistic vibe full of cultural flavor and inspiration.
