Private Coaching

New York Fashion photographer Jodi Jones offers an exciting and unique opportunity to learn not only how to create beautiful concepts, images – but just as important –  how take your photography business to the next level and build a style, brand and launch a career!

Jodi will share her ideas in creating strong visual concepts which includes: creative techniques in lighting, inspiration, moodboards, directing your crew to understand a vision, posing the model to tell the story, and using light to create strong moods and emotions.

You will have the opportunity to shoot in the studio and/or on-location with your creative concept that you and Jodi have developed.  Jodi and her team will produce, art direct and cast a NY agency model in high fashion and beauty shoots for your portfolio, utilizing top hair, makeup and wardrobe stylists. Jodi will teach you her essential lighting techniques that she uses in her work to help “tell your story” and give your images a professional edge. Jodi will show you step-by-step on how she approaches the creative process of making a compelling image along with the technical knowledge needed to be confident in your technique on set for clients.  Jodi’s private one-on-one training courses are like getting a degree in fashion photography but for a fraction of the cost and customized to your goals.  Plus you will get real experience working with real pros and walk away from the experience with a working portfolio and business knowledge that will give you a real start at making a career with your photography.

Portfolio Development: You will photograph a beautiful high-fashion model. Jodi will be going over the “shot list” with you. Jodi will teach you how to approach a fashion shoot before getting “on set”. We will discuss creating a story & individual vision. With Jodi’s strong vision you will be guided to achieving beautiful portfolio images of your own!

Posing the Model: Jodi will talk about the steps to properly communicate emotion through poses. Jodi will show how to achieve an emotion while balancing the story. each photography student will be given time with the models & will have Jodi & her assistant there to instruct them.

Having set lighting positions allows you to easily communicate to your assistants and crew on where to place the lights, and gives you a solid foundation and understanding of the effect light plays on the face and body in different positions.

We will discuss the fundamentals for lighting for fashion including the seven main lighting positions that I use in my work. You can apply this to you work and we will practice them. We will cover gear, on location, and in studio lighting.

We will talk about how to control your light to control a mood and making the light seem natural. Creating sunlight when its overcast, controlling available light. We will play with lighting modifiers and where to place the light for the best impact.

A Capture One expert will give an in-depth teaching of how to create an efficient workflow using the software.
