Go on assignment with Bob Holmes for a front row seat to how he works in the field. Bob Holmes is joined by Marc Silber, as he prepares for and heads out on an assignment to photograph California wineries for an upcoming book. Throughout each lesson Marc asks Bob the questions you would ask as they encounter a wide variety of shots and locations. You’ll get an in-depth look at how Bob prepares, visualizes his shots at different locations, works with people to get the best out of them, overcomes the normal challenges each location brings, and so much more! By the end of the class you’ll have a new appreciation for a day in the life of an assignment photographer as well as all of his tips, tricks, and techniques for creating amazing photos along the way.
