A very interesting evening was delivered to members by Andy Marshal of ‘Collectivescotland.com’ which is a group for training photographers, publications and the organisation of fashion shows.
Andy is CEO of Top Class Modelling Agency and also the CEO of AAIMS (Aspire and Inspire Model School).
He is a director for London Fashion Week and Assistant Editor of Beauty Vations Magazine and so has many years of experience to draw upon.
Using his knowledge and experience of the fashion industry and the world of fashion photography Andy took members through the expectations of a model shoot. He explained in depth the importance of communication between the photographer and model and how this will enhance the rapport between both and help to create the desired look. He was assisted by one of his model team Diana Pupuikyte who spoke with members on how best to make a model feel at ease and how to get the best out of your model.
The combination of Andy and Diana provided the club with a most interesting and informative evening and we look forward to taking him up on his offer of an organised shoot with his models in the near future.
We look forward to seeing Andy in the near future and thanks go out to Willie Pollard who organised this evening for the club. The information gained tonight will hopefully aid members who are new to model shoots next week when we have our first studio shoot of the year.
I would encourage all members to bring forward ideas for the syllabus which will interest members or inspire them to try something new.
