Creative Direction for Product Photography and Video

Pre order $100 $35

A unified creative vision of a photo or video shoot can be a challenge. From production team, orchestration, to managing client expectations, good creative direction can make the difference between an inspiring and satisfying experience - or a creative failure.

In this course, you will find a step-by-step guide to learn the process of leading a production team through a creative studio shoot. We will cover topics ranging from choosing your production team to creating a shot list, and execution.

At the end of this course, you will be able to communicate a vision that creates fans, brand ambassadors, and clients that hire you anytime they need product photography.

Pre-order. This special price is available as you are buying the course in advance. The course will be available early in November. The price will increase as we get closer to the date and once it’s online it will be full price - so register now for a big discount.
