Photography Workshop with Drag Performers Led by Matt Ford
Workshop Date: 13 Mar 2022 Sunday 10:00 - 18:00
Location: Too Young Too Simple Studio, 80a Ashfield Street, London, England, E1 2BJ
In this workshop, you will work on two setups designed by Matt inspired by his personal work on the drag scene. Two drag performers joining us on the day will do their own styling and makeup. Matt will design the set-up and demonstrate some creative ideas.
After that, the floor is yours! You will rotate between the two setups and photograph the performers. Matt will be around to guide you. At the end of the day, you will have a short group session, during which you will review your two favourite images.
After the class, we will have an opportunity to socialise and network for 45 minutes. Matt will prepare a students’ handout with useful information about the lighting setups and some advice on camera settings.
• Two studio setups with studio lighting and backdrops, so the students can rotate faster
• 2 drag performers doing their own makeup, hair and styling based on their drag personality
• Production assistance
• Tea, coffee and a light lunch
• Student’s handout including a mood board, lighting setup, camera settings
