Condense Decades Into Days
Imagine not having to go through the struggle of navigating the unknown path to a session career. or making the costly mistakes of choosing the wrong team to shoot with, or being unprepared for a shoot or a show. maybe you get an opportunity to work backstage, but you’re afraid of turning up unprepared. And you don’t want to risk the cost of travel and accomodation, not to mention the opportunity cost of potentially not delivering and not being asked back again...
You could spend years assisting on shoots and shows trying to figure it out for yourself.
You could spend thousands of dollars of your own money on unusable shoots...
What happens if you get the opportunity you've been waiting for but you're not ready?
How embarrassing would it be to turn without the right tools, techniques and know how?
In the session styling world, you're only as good as your last job, and you can never rest on your laurels...
My first photoshoots were a disaster. I wasted so much time and money and because I didn’t know how to choose the right type of photographer, or put together a team. I didn’t realise doing hair for a photoshoot is totally different to doing hair in the salon. And runway and red carpet hair is something else altogether.
It wasn’t until I worked with a fashion photographer who taught me the importance of casting, and how to work as part of a team that I started to have some success.
Through many accidentally successful shoots (and some unsuccessful), along with the support and guidance of people outside the hair industry and many many years of working on so many different sets, I started to learn how to be a session stylist.
And by working on hundreds of fashion shows, and assisting legends like Guido on shows for brands like Prada, McQueen, Versace, Marc Jacobs and so many more that I learned the importance of leadership and media skills.
Regular television spots, and seeking the guidance of coaches to learn and improve helped me develop the techniques I use today on stage and on camera...
