New York Fashion Week may almost be over, but here at 500px HQ, we’re just getting started. Fashion and beauty portraits are always a popular consumer-facing subject in professional photography work. Looking to jumpstart a career in studio portraiture? Want to learn industry techniques, tips, and tools from one of Canada’s top photographers and retouching instructors? Keep reading!

On October 4-5, our good friend and portrait photographer Michael Woloszynowicz will be holding an intensive 2-Day Fashion & Beauty Photography and Retouching Workshop at 500px’s Toronto HQ.

Learn Michael Woloszynowicz's portraiture techniques. Next to his acclaimed portraiture, you may also know him from his great tutorials on his blog and YouTube channel. He also recently documented his exciting 24 hours of portrait work in A Day in the Life of Michael Woloszynowicz, and shared insightful critique in 500px Portfolio Reviews.

This hands-on workshop will cover everything from studio shoots to post-processing and retouching techniques. It is designed for all levels, but this will be most helpful to those getting started in professional studio work. Every workshop participant will also get some individual shooting time to explore their own poses, compositions or looks, and come away with high-quality pictures they can use for their portfolio. We will be working with a professional model from Elite Models Toronto, and the shoot will be assisted by agency-represented hair and make-up artists.
