Paris Fashion Week - Street Style Fashion Photography

Paris Fashion Week: Haute Couture

2 July & 4-8 July 2022 (live fashion week dates: 4-7th)
Paris, France

Join fashion photographer Elli Ioannou on a unique and immersive experience of haute couture in Paris for street-style fashion photography.

The combination of fashion and Paris is alluring unlike any other city during fashion week. Shooting at fashion shows is an exclusive media privilege. However street fashion photography, captured by master photographers such as Bill Cunningham and made famous by bloggers such as the Sartorialist, is a completely different approach and at times more in demand with media and marketing agencies than the traditional runway shots.

A photographers’ dream shoot - the atmosphere outside a Paris fashion show often provides exhilaratingand dramatic scenes of theatrical antics form guests attending or others simply dressing up just to be photographed.

Participants will gain exclusive access to undisclosed locations for street style outside of fashion shows including CHANEL, DIOR, SCHIAPARELLI, JEAN PAUL GAULTIER amongst others.

The workshop emphasis is on creating a narrative using photography with a technical focus on refining camera craft skills in lighting & composition. In particular fashion portraits within an architectural backdrop of Paris with guidance by Elli Ioannou (who has been capturing Paris fashion week and haute couture as accredited media since 2016).

Through a series of workshops during Paris Fashion week you will be introduced to street style fashion portraiture whilst developing refined camera craft skills in lighting in composition. You will also produce a digital folio for self publishing or your portfolio website , all within the breathtaking backdrop of Paris
