Chumba and Haircare Australia Photographic Workshop

Chumba Concept Salon and Haircare Australia presented a photographic workshop entitled Create Your Collection to ten stylists from the 10th to the 12th of August. The experienced team of mentors included Chumba Concept Salon Creative Director Carl Keeley, makeup artist Paul Blanch, Leanne Cutler of the Hair Shots 2 The World, photographic retouch artist Peter Orlik and Alex Newman, also of Chumba Concept Salon.


The workshop’s final photoshoot

The workshop covered every step of the photographic process, from the basics, research and planning necessary to photography, to the entirety of creating a collection, and seeing the artistic vision right through from the brief to the final product. This was put into practice, with participants partaking in a photo shoot to close the workshop. Stylists had the chance to practice the on-set hair, shot selection and retouching they had learnt during the workshop, for collections that will be internationally distributed with the possibility of editorial coverage.


Mentors helped the students create a photographic collection

“We had a mixed bag of participants, from salon owners to the newly qualified,” said Keeley.” Most had dabbled in a shoot or two but none had yet experience the success of creating an image that reflected their own abilities to their best. All were nervous at the start but full of confidence by the end of shoot day. I was so proud of their learning journey and of the work they created.”
