Photographer Mark Mann teams up with our friends at Brooklyn Central to host Photoville’s first formal portraiture workshop! Drawing on Mann’s extensive experience shooting for Esquire, Men’s Health, Vibe, Spin, Fortune, Billboard, Parade and Complex, and Brooklyn Central’s mission of accessibility and community-minded photo education, students will have the opportunity to learn about lighting, posing, and working with subjects to create simple, straightforward, and powerful portraits in a studio setting.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet at Brooklyn Central in DUMBO. The workshop also includes an (optional) wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share the work they shot and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.
Mark Mann is a celebrity and sports photographer. He was born in Glasgow, where he lived until he went to study at the prestigious photographic program of Manchester Polytechnic. Before long, the recent graduate was assisting innovative fashion photographers Nick Knight and Miles Aldridge, learning the ropes and building his own body of work. Three years later, Mann started shooting on his own, relocating to New York City.
