Joanna Blair - Melbourne makeup artist

STUDENT PHOTO SHOOT – Exclusive to my students only

Images are everything – they are the life-blood of your business.

The only thing any prospective Bride, Photographer, Designer, Production Manager, Photo shoot Director, or anyone at all requiring a great Makeup Artist and/or Hairstylist wants to see is:


Certificates mean nothing – your portfolio is EVERYTHING

Clients want to see your PROFESSIONAL WORK (not social media feed full of makeup or hair you have done on yourself)

I have collaborated with Melissa Maier (this is her work above) – a very talented stylist with extensive industry contacts, unlimited imagination, energy and the ability to make any shoot worthy of high end publication. She’s also very down to earth and lots of fun to work with!

In order to really assist you to get your career going and set you apart from your competition we are offering the exclusive opportunity to:

  • Create Vogue quality photos of your work in a really fun and fully supported environment
  • Showcase yourself as a true makeup artist (and / or hairstylist if you are styling hair)
  • Work on models who have fabulous hair, amazing skin, beautiful eye shape, stunning bone structure, that from a makeup perspective is really easy to apply makeup to, and hair that will do anything you want it to.
  • Your model will be fully styled and professionally photographed – to the quality that you see in glossy magazines.
  • You will be fully supported by me throughout the whole process
  • Victoria Mua (who teaches the hairstyling course) will beautifully style your models hair in the latest, on trend styles (she will also fully support hair students involved in this shoot)

Walk away from this shoot with:

  • 10 truly beautiful images to promote yourself online and on your website
  • Knowledge of what to look at makeup and hair wise photographically speaking to create the best result of your work
  • Etiquette on a photo shoot that makes professionals want to work with you time and time again
  • We will submit these images for publication in industry respected magazines and blogs to maximize the exposure of your work and to edify you as a professional makeup artist and / or hairstylist to prospective clients

Very limited places for this shoot – only 2 spots left!
