Happy new year everyone! Having professional looking photographs is critical for anyone selling fashion products, so Oakland Fashion Network is excited to announce that we will be hosting a photography workshop. Join us on Thursday, January 26, 6pm to learn the basics of getting great shots of your clothing and accessories. The workshop will be lead by photographer and filmmaker Brandon Mason and Makeup Artist Meko White. They will speak on what you need to know for a photoshoot, how to prepare, what you can expect and answer any questions. This is a rare opportunity and we are so lucky to have them take the time from their busy schedules for OFN.
It will take place at JEAJA Design Studio, 319 – 14th St. Oakland. There is street parking, a paid lot next to the building, and we are 3 blocks from 12th St. BART.
We hope you will join us for an informative evening of networking and education. Light refreshments will be served.
Advance discounted tickets are available for $10 until 2pm on Jan. 26, and at the door for $15. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/oakland-fashion-network-photography-basics-workshop-tickets-30907622531
