In this webinar we will be joined by advertising and commercial portrait photographer George Fairbairn. George will be sharing his amazing images with us and sharing tips and tricks on how he creates his images. George is well known for his work with shooting musicians and bands. We will look at all the areas within band photography, commissioned promo shoots, editorial portraits and live performance shoots.
George was born outside of Chicago, is obsessed with all things science, and moved to the UK for his love of proper football, a full English breakfast, and Yorkshire puddings. George turned down a scholarship for photography to the Art Institute of Seattle after High School because he didn’t want to move away from Chicago….two years later he was stationed in England in the US Air Force! Since coming out of the service, George has turned his attention back to photography and is now a well respected advertising and editorial portrait photographer. George is known his powerful, story telling portraits. Specialising in advertising portraiture George has had the privilege of shooting advertising campaigns as well as promotional and commercial portraits for bands, musicians, and celebrities. Currently residing outside of Cambridge, George still thinks the English weather isn’t all that bad and has hopes of Cambridge United one day make it into the Premier League.
