Fashion photography is not [only] the ability to take pictures of clothes. It is all about feeling, sensations and the art of showing a designer's dream.
More precisely, it is not to show, while it is instead to engage the viewer’s senses and let him/her perceive that dream, using allusions and symbols, sometimes mysterious and enigmatic.
Like a beautiful painting or a complex piece of music, the fashion photograph has to reveal its contents one layer at a time, from the first appearance to the inner significance.
Our top-of-the-line workshops are made for this; to imagine and build together with all the participants a thought-provoking [fashion] story.
From concept to completion, we will develop with you the whole theme, mood and style.
Using location, props, garments and everything available, we will brainstorm, gather inspirations and go through all the processes of pre-production, model casting, set design, lighting and acting technicalities.
What is more important, each and every one of you will have the opportunity to shoot and tell your [fashion] story...
