Did you know that the first photographic fashion layout in a magazine was instigated because of a dare? Fashion photography has come a long way since its introduction at the turn of the 20th century, but only thanks to a cadre of incredible photographers throughout the generations who've pushed the limits of technical capabilities and creativity. From mastering the staged photoshoot to capturing fashion "in the wild" on crowded city streets, it's time to explore the world of fashion photography starting from its humble beginnings.

Join New York Adventure Club for the second of a two-part series surrounding the art of fashion photography — in Part II, we'll explore the evolution of fashion photography between the late 20th century to present day, through the lens of DSLR cameras and photo software that allowed fashion photographers to achieve new creative heights.

Led by professional photographer Julien McRoberts, this virtual and educational experience will include:

  • A deep dive into the transition of film photography to the digital age, thanks to a suite of revolutionary new tools

  • The impact and contributions of some of the world's greatest fashion photographers in the digital era, including Annie Leibowitz, Stephen Maisel, Patrick Demarchelier, David LaChapelle, Bill Cunningham, and more

  • A look at the era of glamorous mega shoots and productions

  • A discussion of internal rifts within the fashion photography community, from the heavy use of photoshop programs to overall lack of diversity in models

  • Peek behind the curtain to see what it takes to set up a fashion shoot for Vogue

  • The great disruptors — a debate on the effect smart phones and social media has had on the photography industry

Stick around afterward for a Q&A with Julien — any and all questions about fashion photography are welcomed and encouraged!
