Avant-garde Fashion Photography from East Hampton to Reykjavik

This summer, push fashion photography into the future using some of the most beautiful light on earth.


Your backdrop will be the seascapes, sand dunes, and pine barrens of the Hamptons, as well as the vertiginous crags of Iceland.

Working in both locations over three weeks, you will shoot a peerless portfolio of modern fashion and fine art photography. Using working models and the mentorship of renowned photographers Alexis Martino, you’ll master the art of editing and sequencing images into a complex narrative, showcasing your talent for turning a look, a pose, or a brand into a compelling story. You’ll finish this course completely prepared to become a professional fashion photographer, with the latest skills in studio lighting, location scouting, and post-production grading and compositing. You will also possess a polished website demonstrating your personal vision and talents.

We look forward to collaborating with you as we make art in the wild across two continents this summer.
