This year, the PPANJ has the pleasure of welcoming the talented Tatiana Lumiere as our keynote speaker. Tatiana is an international award winning portrait photographer specializing in women’s portraiture and Fine Art conceptual photography which highlights the elusive and fragile essence of feminine beauty. She is known for her creative use of natural elements such as water and fog which, along with precise posing, works to create timeless portraits that look more like artworks than photography. She has pioneered the use of fog photography in everyday studios, allowing clients to enjoy what used to be the exclusive domain of fine art photographers.
This program will also feature Geniia Elliot. Originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, Geniia Elliot pursued her passion for makeup artistry in 2012.
Beginning her career at Shiseido, she quickly found her creative voice and became a makeup artist for Dior.
In 2014 Geniia was invited to work with award-winning photographer Tatiana Lumiere , which enabled her to travel nationally and attend exclusive workshops in which she demonstrated her makeup skills. Her artistic collaboration with Tatiana Lumiere’s photography received multiple awards with the WPPI, the world’s largest photography association.
Geniia has experience in fashion, theater, workshops, individual makeovers, weddings, and photoshoots. She is known for achieving flawless skin and a natural, sophisticated look for her wedding and portrait clients. Her strength is in her ability to bring out the natural beauty of every subject, regardless of gender or ethnicity. She is capable of achieving any desired look in a creative and professional way.
Before Tatiana gets started, makeup artist Geniia will empower photographers to work with their models to prepare for their portrait session. Afterward, Tatiana’s program will dive into working with female subjects to capture their innate beauty. From start to finish, attendees will understand how to work with hair and make up, costuming, posing and the photography process. Don’t forget to bring your camera! You will be invited to photograph using Tatiana’s stylings and suggestions to add to your portfolio. Grab your seat bright and early before this workshop begins at 10:00am.
