Happy collaborating with designers, assistants, and other team members in a studio setting, I wanted to explore an aspect of photography that was more dynamic with a similar type of team collaboration. I signed up for a workshop with fashion photographer Lara Jade. She was very frank about the inner workings of fashion photography. I found many parallels between fashion and fine art industries. Of course, I also got to pick up the camera for a bit (images below).

The workshop was thick with information, and left me wanting to know more and to get more time shooting with a real model and creative team. Wanting to expose myself to a different approach I signed up for another workshop, this time with Shamayim Shacaro. This workshop was shorter, a little less formal, but full of just as much valuable information. And, feeling more confident behind the camera, I was able to get some beautiful shots, both in studio and on the street. (images below, with credits linked to Instagram accounts)

Shamayim has an easy going demeanor and volunteers his knowledge freely and frankly. He likes to record a lot of behind-the-scenes footage of his work, and hired me to to take still and video footage of his last shoot in New York.
