Great fashion photography, at its best, reflects and shapes the era in which it is made. Whether you are a student, aspiring photographer, or working professional, building a fashion portfolio that aspires to this standard can be daunting.

Thomas Werner offers advice on assembling your creative team, casting models, developing shoot concepts, and producing photographs and fashion for editorial and advertising.

This is 'how to' at the highest level for photographers, editors, producers, fashion designers, and more. This talk is an essential guide for fashion photographers and filmmakers.
