The mission of this session is to make sure attendees learn how to take strong beauty images. Providing the necessary tools, a great location, and the right guidance; Julia and the Train to Create Team will be on hand to give you advice on how to shoot in ways you may not have considered before. The day is designed to be hands-on to truly bring out your most creative shots. Julia will start by covering the necessities that every photographer must know: how to understand light and its behaviour, how to direct models, how to shoot to minimize your retouching time and get great images. She will discuss the aspects that many photographers miss, as well as the common pitfalls faced and she will focus on improving upon the initial aspects that can really affect final results.

As is the case for many artists, Julia Kuzmenko didn’t fully explore her creative talents until later in her life. Born in Moscow, Russia she majored in Economics at the university and spent many years in an office as a Senior Accountant before travelling the world searching for a missing spark in her life. She found it when she took a leap of faith and went to study at The International College of Professional Photography in Melbourne, Australia and she hasn’t looked back since. Now based in Los Angeles and internationally published, Julia shoots Fashion and Beauty all over the world and hopes her teaching will inspire others to take their own leaps of faith toward similar success.
