Alexander Papacosta has made a full-time career out of doing what he loves — commercial photography production and publishing.  Now he’s ready to share his knowledge during this intimate, intensive, on-location 1-day workshop.

Adam and Alexander will cover the full range of his swimwear, fashion and commercial photography tips & tricks including pre-production, shooting models on location, and post-production. Each student will work 1-on-1 with international agency models on the beautiful beaches of Ayia Napa, while enjoying the comfort of a small group setting to learn, grow, and walk away with an updated portfolio.

If you lack access to a studio or crave more than shooting indoors, it’s essential that you obtain the ability to shoot on location while taking significant control of a seemingly uncontrollable environment. This Workshop will provide you with the tools and methods necessary to tackle your own location shoots with confidence while relying on taste and problem-solving rather than worrying about camera settings or having the best gear.

If you’re a novice, you’ll go home prepared to take your portfolio to the next level where you’ll stop reaching out to models because they’ll be reaching out to you. If you’re already at that level, you’ll leave much closer to turning your hobby into a career. Still not you, or already in career mode? Then let’s get you ready for the higher expectations that come with bigger clients and greater paychecks. In other words, this Workshop is aimed toward all levels of photographers looking to improve the finer details of their outdoor game.

This Workshop is not a mass shootout with a bunch of photographers bumping shoulders for half-decent snapshots of a model who isn’t sure where to look. Instead, you’ll shoot each model 1-on-1 and walk away with images that deserve your watermark alone! The Workshop is geared toward those who simply want to produce better pictures on-location — whether working with experienced models or new faces.
