It’s been quite the journey for us at the company. Obviously with any new company, we’ve have learned some lessons, we’ve created new offerings and we’ve built a successful and thriving community of fashion photographers and for that, I am extremely proud. 2016 saw us introducing Portfolio Building Day, a full-on production day where we do all the work for you and all you have to do is show up with your camera! We also launched our 7 hour long Master Class Beauty Photography Exposed, a comprehensive source of all things beauty photography including retouching tips for beauty, interviews with top beauty photographers and make up artists and so much more! We also added a ton of tutorials and written posts about our industry. Hired new industry professionals to teach and share their expertise with the Breed community. We brought on Digital Transitions to bring Phase One camera systems for all our workshops and Portfolio Building Days and partnered with BlinkBid, an invaluable program that helps with the business side of your photography and let’s you build an estimate for all your upcoming jobs, big or small!
If you thought 2016 was jammed pack with awesome offerings, let me just give you a brief description of what you can expect in 2017! Portfolio Building Days are still going strong and it’s a great way to build your book with agency models, network with other photographers. We have 3 lighting set ups that I personally set up, we hire an awesome team of hair, make up and stylists to put our looks together and we hire 3 agency-signed, top models to pose for you! All you bring is your camera and your memory cards! We even have Digital Transitions there with a PhaseOne camera for you to test out! They will gather your files and send them to you, so you don’t have to worry about that end! Book HERE for our LA, NYC or London days coming up this January through March! In April I will offer a more comprehensive workshop where I will show you my lighting skills for beauty and fashion photography along with retouching tips and a business segment. The exact dates for this workshop with me will be announced very soon! In the meantime, I am offering 1 hour private consultations & portfolio reviews via Skype. These are on sale now and you can book a private consultation with me here. The price will go up after January 2nd, so be sure to book the on-sale one now! You can book now for the sale price and schedule for it anytime in the next six months.
We’ve partnered with Red Model Management to host a Breed model scouting contest, an opportunity where you have a chance to secure a $1500 finders fee & the model gets a modeling contract in New York City with Red! This will help you find more models to shoot locally & give them a reason to beg you to shoot with them!
In 2017 we are starting a Monday Brief! We will have a client offer a bid for our members to try out to win an advertising campaign. I will give you the brief and the deadline on Mondays, so be sure to check the site every Monday for the new bid! The winner gets the ad job and gets paid for the the job! Look out for our first Monday Brief coming January 2nd! At Breed we’ve taught you how to light and how to retouch, how to get your images looking perfect, gave you a chance to build a professional portfolio and now Breed wants to get you PAID! Stay tuned for this exciting new feature!
