Portfolio Workshop in NY

hi everyone! yes, 2 posts in one day...all while I'm trying to pack! ha ha ha

here's the video to explain...but here's some more info...

we would set up a real beauty photo shoot set up, with an amazing photographer than i have worked for...feel free to peek at his site:

he charges $5,000 a day to shoot, so this is an amazing opportunity to shoot with a photographer of his caliber...and to get the feel for working on a set like this, and to leave with the photos in hand

this is rare, because as much as everyone from the photographer to the assistants promise to send you images- they  don't. And many beautiful shoots I've worked on....I will never have a copy of. That is why my portfolio is so frustrating...and you can't put pictures that you took on set with your camera! ha ha ha..
what we'll do:
*provide models for everyone
*you will need to bring your make-up kit- I'll be providing a list of what you'll  need for all the looks we'l be creating
*I will demonstrate and teach as we go on a model...as you recreate it on your 
 model at the same time
*I will help each person perfect their looks and go over all the details and tricks required for a  beauty shot - they are very detailed and precise because it's all about the face (think of all the shots in Kevyn Aucoins books...like those)
*I will select looks that are necessary to show skill ad diversity for your portfolios
* whether no need beauty, commercial, bridal, anything....you always get your foot in the door with your portfolio...and if you're looking for an agent...you'll only be seen with a professional portfolio
*i'll go over all the details of arranging your portfolio, working on set, things to keep an eye on , when to ask the photographer to step in, and much more
please let me know the interest as this will be a lot of work to set up...with all the models, the lighting, the photographer, his team of people  work with work with the top names in the business, Annie Liebowitz, Steven Meisel and more...just to let you know the quality of what you'll be getting...this is a priceless opportunity to work with Ian, the models, and have me teach and guide you as we go....
not to mention, if it involves me....it will be very fun!!!
This will be a day long event.....more details to come! I'm not sure of the investment it will cost yet, there are a lot of costs to add in....the studio rental, the models, the photographer, the lighting equipment, and so on...i'll keep you posted!

I would totally been interested in this! I have been trying to get a portfolio together and like you said...its SOOO hard to get the photos you want!

OMG! This is exactly what I'll be working in hard-core for the next few weeks. I've got some photographers scheduled and just need to find models. I so wish I lived in NYC, this is is a great opportunity to build your portfolio!

Jake said...

OMG! Great Idea, This sounds awesome. I went to the L.A glaminar and I loved it.

I wish I could go to New York for this. Kandee please, do this in L.A too.

This is such a great opportunity for everyone to get their portfolio started. This is the main thing that is holding me back as far as starting my career.

MUAinTheMaking said...

Kandee - yes!!! Genious idea! Those of us who are really serious will benefit SO MUCH from this opportunity. Please do this class in San Francisco or LA, and I am so there!

dreamer said...

I won't be able to go, but just an idea...can students bring their own model(s)? This may save on costs?
But they would still get the benefit of a professional photographer.

Heather said...

Kandee! This is exactly the type of opportunity I have been looking for! After the LA Glaminar session I was actually talking to someone wishing that there was something like this! I am DEFINITELY interested and can't wait to hear more details...

babyroch said...

I would love to update my portfolio, and the funny thing is I know Ian =) We went to school together! I hadn't talked to him in years and he found me on facebook =)

I am a freelance artist in Las Vegas but, have had a hard time building my portfolio cuz a lot of the work is not useful to me i.e. nudes or implied nudes (at least I get paid).
Anyways I love your videos you have the cutest personality and would love to attend one of your glaminars, maybe the next time in LA. But I am very interested on the portfolio thing, so i will be waiting for more info =)
Thanks, Rochelle =)

I've just launched a Miss World contest on my blog and I thought you might be interested in entering?It's really fun!

Rebecca said...

this is exactly what mua's need! you can have all the training in the world but you never get the practical advice you need to confidently be on set. i'm always a nervous wreck wondering if i'm doing the right thing or not!!! argh!!! i'd need to come from london so would need to book flights, etc but would so love to be there! x

Sarah Marie said...

That sounds like a great idea!

I've been fairly lucky because I am a freelance make-up artist as well as a model so I always (well, almost always) get a copy of the work, providing I am in it!

Good luck and congrats on the Elle award!

Heather B said...

That is a fantastic idea!!
I watch your videos constantly and I love all your looks and tips and tricks you offer everyone! Stunning!
Thank you for all that you do, and hopefully you can have one here on the West coast someday!

I'm in Jersey so I'm only a hop, skip and jump away from NYC. Very interested in this! Thanks for the opportunity.

Crystal said...

Kandee,
Please consider doing this in L.A. sometime in the future! I would love to go; this would be a fantastic opportunity!

Love,
Crystal.S

Laura said...

I would absolutely love the opportunity to work on a photo shoot and to build my portfolio! Thank you so much for thinking of this and being willing to put it together. Please consider me for this, Kandee!!!
Have a great Sunday!
Laura

Tanya the Makeup Artist said...

Kandee, you should do a portfolio class in LA!!!

Wendy Huber said...

Definitely interested!!! I agree with everyone else that this is exactly what I have needed! Will it be $5K per person? Or how will the cost be? $5K might be out of my budget, but please let me know cost and any other info when you get it more together, because I would love to make this happen:)
