Join Vivienne Mackinder for a 4 Day Photoshoot Workshop

One phrase Vivienne Mackinder likes to entrust to each student is to “work smarter and not harder.” The results speak for themselves. The students do just that. Taking an advanced educational class is certainly no easy task, but taking an advanced educational class with world-renowned talent such as Mackinder is a game changer. Mackinder’s next photoshoot workshop is scheduled for Oct. 2-5 in Riverhead, NY.

"What I love about our photoshoot workshops is that you have a solid education as the images come alive on the computer screen,” said Mackinder. "You work on your own shoot, with my art direction, and assist me on the day of my shoot. You receive education, art direction and images for your portfolio to promote your artistry."

This workshop helps stylists build their portfolios while teaching how to create a photoshoot from start to finish. Being a student at heart, Mackinder allows her student stylists to work freely beyond her guiding hand, faultier at times, and pick themselves up to create masterful work.
