About This Class

Go behind-the-scenes with world-renowned photographer Van Styles as he blends the worlds of model and landscape photography. In this 30-minute class, you’ll learn everything you need to capture a subject and natural landscape in total harmony — from scouting a location to working with your model on the shoot, and finally to selecting and editing your images.

After going through the lessons, you are encouraged to set up a shoot outdoors and create some favorite images of your own. To get started all you will need is a camera, a subject, and a compelling setting. From there, it is on you to execute the photo shoot. Looking forward to seeing your projects!
