With much of the world in and out of lockdown, it’s difficult to stay creative and work as a photographer. But being stuck at home—for whatever reason—doesn’t mean you can’t take amazing portraits. Self portraiture is one way of course, but why not embrace technology and do a remote photoshoot?

Remote photoshoots, also known as FaceTime photoshoots, are a creative way to work with models anywhere in the world. You could be in the comfort of your own home while taking photos of a model posing from their high-rise apartment in Singapore, or garden in the outback of Australia, or… wherever.

The remote shoot is not only about getting unique photos for your portfolio from anywhere in the world, it’s also a great way to collaborate with other creatives, to practice producing photoshoots, and to challenge yourself during the editing process.

If you’ve never done this kind of shoot before, it’s hard to know where to start. Luckily, you have this class to guide you. In these videos I clearly outline the steps and will help you avoid any roadblocks so you can dive in and create some cool imagery from you remote photoshoot.

In this course, you'll learn…

How to come up with a concept for your remote shoot
How to find a model and creative collaborator
How to style the shoot, without being in the same place as the model
The technology you will need for the shoot
Tips for the actual video call and photoshoot
How to photoshop out the artefacts that arise when taking photos of a screen
This class is for people who already know their way around a camera. If you are an intermediate or advanced photographer, you should be able to follow these steps. If you are a beginner, you might want to start by learning the basics, which you can do by learning how to take self-portraits… Or just dive into remote photoshoots, who am I to hold you back?!

Good luck with your first remote photoshoot! I can’t wait to see what you create in the class project section!
