Creative Direction for Photography
Creative Direction for Photography
Being a Photographer and a Creative Director is the perfect combination: it allows you to use the full extent of your imagination to come up with an idea, develop a concept and execute it, from just a visualization to the tangible result. It also allows you to not only be creative on-set, but to call a project really your own.
Creative Direction and Photography go hand-by-hand and make a very powerful combo.
To be a Creative Director, you need to show the world (and your clients) that you are able, not only to beautifully photograph a concept, but also to be imaginative and practical at the same time, work with tight deadlines, be a team player (and know how to choose your team), and many other aspects.
This course will teach you the main things to be known about how to combine Photography with Creative Direction, will talk about the needed skills and how to achieve them, the different types of clients and will include a real case study, amongst other topics.
