Are you in the process of developing a commercial portfolio? Does your personal work reflect a consistent style that is ready to represent what you might shoot commercially? In this intensive course we'll take a deep dive into your existing work by editing and sequencing it to represent the start of your commercial portfolio. We'll look at your visual strengths as well as discuss personality strengths to understand how both influence the type of commercial work you'll get hired for. At the same time, we'll survey contemporary trends in commercial photography and look at who is shooting what, why they get hired and how you can begin to lay the foundation to find your own commercial clients. Guest lecturers will include agents and/or photographers established in the commercial realm. This course is geared toward the aspiring professional.
