Series IV Branding for Photographers: Ginny is continually asked by photographers how she transitioned from weddings to lifestyle to commercial and editorial work. Because she credits the Loom technique in making the successful jump to the commercial work, Ginny is incorporating Branding shoots into Loom IV. During this two day series, 16 attendees will learn all about the Loom Technique in lecture and observation exercises. You will learn how to execute the Loom process in couple photography and how she curates and executes a branding shoot. In the modern approach to marketing, brands are selling a lifestyle along with their product, thus developing a more authentic method of engaging their market. During this series you will photograph four scenes. 

Lectures & Observations: Ginny will provide lectures before and after the shoots. These are teaching lectures explaining the principles of Loom and how to incorporate these techniques into your own work and how the study of relationships, fluid motion and continual action enhance your wedding, lifestyle and branding portfolios.  Ginny will also curated a scene for observation, so you can learn how to create those 'lived-in' environments Loom is known for. 

Concept for the Shoots: In small groups the photographers will document four branding shoots. Each shoot has it's own brand, from mainstream to artisan. Two shoots will be with couples in the traditional continual action method (still marketing a brand within the shoot). During these shoots, photographers will have 30 minutes total; 20 minutes to document without direction and then 10 minutes to direct the couple if you wanted a specific moment recreated. The remaining two shoots will use two other Loom techniques; Stop/Start and Movement, to bring life and authenticity to a commercial shoot. These shoots will have two parts; still-life and product shooting & then the lifestyle element with couples/group scenes. 

Images: Your images from each shoot have no publication restrictions and can be used on your social media, websites, blogs and for marketing purposes. As some of the photographers will be shooting on film, we ask that all photographers wait to reach out to publications until given the go ahead by Ginny Au. 

Guest Photographer: Our guest photographer for this series will be Erich McVey.
