A new initiative, ALT TBP lets anyone request for an artist to conduct a 4-5 day workshop in Dubai, only focusing on fashion photography. Based on a voting system, that will allow people to select an artist and send a request to join in the workshop. The voters will get 15% discount on the full fees. These workshops will be for mid-to-advance level photographers and will be focusing on aesthetic, lighting, retouching and creating editorial ideas.
To launch the the program first workshops will be conducted by Samuli Karala & Mann.
More information will be available on thingsbypeople.com/alttbp
Its been almost a decade since the birth of the fashion industry in the region. We as an agency and our clients are still facing challenges finding the right editorial models here. Even though there are more than 3 established model agencies and a smaller market, we are terrified of shooting great stories. We are pushing most of the agencies to improve and things have become better but still there is some distance to go. It's silly to have just one good model a month.
