Your weekend as a Fashion Photographer.


Makato the fashion photography workshop series from Baghath Kumar (Makka) aims to give the experience of a typical fashion shoot  bringing the experience and knowledge that Makka has gained from his own personal journey as photographer and his commercial fashion photography experience. This will expand your understanding of Fashion Photography and give you the ability to take up a similar assignement.



The workshop attendee numbers are small and exclusive. Each participant will have their own one to one time with a professional model as well as one to one instructional time with Makka. Whether you are a passionate amateur, a professional photographer or you specialize in an entirely different field of photography altogether;  we are sure that after the two days you will leave with new ideas, knowledge and guidance to put into your own practice. 



Makka will give a live demo on how to setup the lights and the way to get the best pose from a professional model. This workshop shall not be a lecture session only; it will be hands on and will give you valuable experience working with industry professional models and the opportunity to enhance the images within your portfolio.

You will see the "behind the scenes" from planning a shoot, the execution and how the final picture is delivered.



On set, we always work with professional models, professional stylists, hair and make-up artists who are currently working in the fashion industry; we feel this is an incredibly important asset for workshop to have realtime professional artist. The team will be there on the day to collaborate and are open for any questions you may have.


It is impossible to organize a workshop of this kind without support from our partners. We have the best of the brands supporting us with Cameras. Lenses, Lights, Wardrobe and Jewelry. Participants will have an opportunity know about their products during the workshop.



Anyone with knowledge on basic photography can attend this workshop.

Photography is an instinct. It is the translation of the excitement you feel when you see something from a unique point of view. Bhagatkumar discovered that instinct when he was all of ten years. His child-like curiosity inspired him to frame nature’s beauty with his camera. Though he went on to study engineering, he was to soon reestablish his bond with photography.
