There will be no detailed instruction as you’ll spend the majority of the day focusing on your shooting and taking as many frames as possible. Should you need advice, our team of instructors will be there all day offering their help and assistance.

The Portfolio Building Day is open to photographers at all levels as we wish to offer everyone the opportunity to get a professional fashion shoot under their belt.



10:30am, shooting starts at 11:00am, shoot until 5:30pm, lunch at noon.


Photographers are responsible for their own lunch.


Your camera, lenses, SD cards and preferably a computer to back up your shots in-between wardrobe changes.

Digital Transitions will be on set with the latest Phase One cameras tethered for you to shoot with at one of the three shooting stations.


Attendants will be divided into three small groups that will rotate shooting at three separate stations. Each station will have a different lighting setup, model and styling. There will be at least three wardrobe changes for each model, ensuring at least 9 looks for your book.

Instructors, stylist, MUA and hair will be present during the entire day ensuring the highest quality production providing you with an opportunity to walk away with as many images you are able to capture within our six hours of shooting. If you have any questions or need guidance we are here to help you.




Do I have to have experience?

You should have a working knowledge of your dslr. We welcome students who have never been on set at a Fashion shoot or an opportunity to shoot models.

How is the shoot lit?

Melissa Rodwell & the Breed team will set up all of the equipment & lighting, all you’ll need to do is point & click.

Will there be instructors there?

The portfolio day is not a Breed Academy class with lessons from an instructor. It’s designed to emulate 3 professional fashion shoots. You will get to take advantage of the Breed team doing all of the tough work including, casting the models, securing a team, styling the shoot, setting up the lights & handling all aspects of the shoot.

How big are the classes?

The classes will be approximately 15 students. We’ll split into 3 groups and rotate through multiple lighting set ups & models. You will have more than enough to shoot each look. You will likely be able to shoot hundreds of images over the course of the day.

Can I shoot film or medium format cameras?

Yes, you may shoot any system you’d like. Digital Transitions will be providing a Phase One system at one of the stations allowing those who would like to an opportunity to shoot tethered with an on site digitech.
