“I recently did the 3 days workshop with Shaun Alexander and it was incredible. So much more than I expected. I have already done a fashion photography workshop with another photographer before and that was nothing compared to what Shaun taught me during this 3 days. He is an amazing photographer, with so much vision and creativity. He changed my vision about fashion photography and he guided me to take pictures that I never thought I would be able to do. Also his knowledge with photoshop, make up and hair are unbelievable. I guess that is what makes him so amazing and complete as he can make every single detail so perfect considering all his knowledge. The workshop is also very challenging and exciting as Shaun made us use our creativity to create different looks for pictures. Shaun is also a great guy that I enjoyed spending time and he makes everybody feels very comfortable.
The models and the lady for make up are also amazing. They are super professional and beautiful! The entire team was so amazing. I enjoyed each second.
I went all the way from Thailand to LA for this workshop and I would come back any time. I have now so much more confident to create my business. I would recommend this workshop to anyone, even if fashion photography is not what you do, but I’m sure that are so much you can learn from Shaun.”
I love your passion, enthusiasm and wonderful personality , you will go far in this business! I hope to see you soon for another adventurous and exciting workshop, maybe in Thailand or even in Europe! please stay in touch, I am here for you anytime you need my help! yours, Shaun Alexander
Shaun Alexander is like first class flying on steroids. The service is sensational and his ability to teach you all the tricks is astounding, I really didn’t expect to learn so much in 3 days! Shaun utilized every minute to pass on as much of his quality knowledge as possible and inspire your creativity. Shaun brought out so much in me, I can never thank him enough. If you are an aspiring photographer or even a well established photographer I highly recommend Shaun, his energy runs off on you and you create magic together.. Thank you Shaun.
You have no idea how much I appreciate that fact that you traveled practically half way across the world to attend my workshop, and I am so happy that we were able to make a memorable and very productive workshop for you. The results were stunning and your eye for beauty and lighting is exquisite , keep up the great work. I hope I see you soon for our Australian photography workshops as we planned for early 2017. I cant wait to meet you and work with you again. Best regards, Shaun Alexander
Shaun Alexander took a seed and turned it into a flower when he produced and directed a film for us. He went above and beyond incorporating his one of a kind artistic vision with the exact characteristics and goals we were looking for. If you are in need of film that has an emotional pull behind it Shaun Alexander is the one to do it. Thank you Shaun for a timeless piece. Can’t wait for our next project together 🙂

You are the BOMB!!!!! THANK YOUUUUUU!
You r good looks and great sense of style is every photographers dream. Thank you for a wonderful shoot. Best! Shaun Alexander
I have been a professional photographer for 6 years, but my career as a fashion photographer started when I attended Shaun Alexander’s fashion photography workshop. Working one-on-one with Shaun in Los Angeles was such a privilege. Shaun is very welcoming and kind. He keeps it light and fun while packing years of knowledge and experience into the curriculum. The entire workshop was geared to my specific needs and interests. While there, I learned hands-on as we worked with models, a hair stylist, lights and a wardrobe stylist on location and in the studio.
The accommodations that Shaun arranged for my stay were awesome, very safe and a place anyone would enjoy.
After the workshop, I am fully confident that I can find models and set up all the accompanying parts of a fashion or beauty campaign for clients.
My wife asked me while I was in LA about the workshop, and I said “the best images I have ever seen are in my own camera body right now!”
I would recommend Shaun Alexander’s workshop to anyone looking to gain extensive knowledge and further their photography career, AND- It was a blast!

I’ve been a Cosmetologist for the past 22 years…In that time I have had the opportunity to work with some of the INDUSTRY GREATS! But it wasn’t until I was connected with the World Renowned Shaun Alexander, that I understood what fashion photography really was. Never have a met a photographer so talented. His style is unique and in my opinion “its a work of art”. Having come from an extensive commercial background, I was enamored to caress the pages of my book with such strong fashion greatness! I’m so surprised and privileged to have someone like him right here in Los Angeles, and Lucky that he has not left us for fashion capitols like New York or Europe. I can’t express what an honor It is to have someone like him in my “repertoire” of networks… I am SCREAMING HIS NAME from coast to coast. “IN FACT I WISH I WAS A PHOTOGRAPHER, so I CAN STUDY, APPRENTICE, and/or LEARN from This Master Of Photography… He is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!!
OH! ” Did I mention He Styled and did Makeup for the shoot?” He’s a Plethora of Talent!

I am very much thankful and grateful to work with Shaun, He is truly a professional and talented photographer. His creativity is outstanding and awesome! I didn’t expected that he provided me from his workshop a “three” wonderful and fabulous models for two days. His is very cool, generous and friendly in his nature in sharing his techniques and ideas. I am recommending not only to myself for another work with Shaun, but also to those who love and looking for a real photography. I got all that I needed in 2 days.

Just finished an incredible second day of shooting with Shaun Alexander. What an amazing day! He really provides a complete experience.
Beautiful Models, fantastic hair stylists, amazing make-up and styling, and access to a beautiful photography studio. But most importantly, he really
gives you access to his years of experience as a top fashion photographer. We covered an incredible amount of information in a few days, everything
from technical lighting concepts, photo-retouching/artistry, down to the subtleties of directing and bringing out the best performances from your models.
All of this while at the same time making the entire process fun, spontaneous, and very very hands-on. I cant wait to get back to my studio, and try to perfect
and experiment with the techniques and ideas from the workshop. So i can schedule another one as soon as possible!!!
Thanks again Shaun for an incredible experience,

What else could I really say about Shaun Alexander besides one word?… Amazing!
I am very new to this world of modeling with little experience so truth be told I was nervous. Having said this, it had little to no effect on this top fashion photographer at all. Shaun Alexander is so talented and a true artist that he could use even the most inexperienced models and turn the photographs into absolute divine pieces of art work. He truly knows how to make a model feel beautiful and comfortable even while posing in 6′ stilettos. His energy and passion for photography completely radiates. I am still amazed at how he could pick up any piece of clothing, accessories or a prop and create a BEAUTIFUL fierce image. I am honored to have worked with the one and only Shaun Alexander
Thank you again for such a positive, fun, and educational experience/photo shoot.

Your workshops was a fresh new experience for me; I learned a lot about things not usually covered in photography workshop even though they deserve more time than the technical stuff. Like make-up. Shaun’s make-up abilities are astounding. I watched him work up close and I saw the results on my pictures. The colors and gradation were so incredible. I learned a lot only by watching Shaun work. That gave me a lot of ideas and I look forward to experiment on my own. The models were just awesome and some of the best models I have ever worked with. The workshop went by quickly and I am ready for another. Thanks Shaun

I simply wanted to express my gratitude and admiration for you. Working with you was an experience I will cherish and refer back to throughout my career. Not only are you good at what you do, but you also love what you do. Your skill and zest for your work make for an amazing working experience. I look forward to the day when we can work together again. You helped to capture the best side of myself, both physically and personally. Your knowledge and know-how helped me to do the best that I have ever done in front of the camera. The knowledge that you shared with me – both about simple posing, and also about the Fashion industry as a whole has proven to be a priceless gem of inspiration and knowledge. The excitement of having the chance to work with you was only compounded when I saw the finished product. To see myself through your eyes in your photos was a liberating and exhilarating experience. Your work is art. You do not simply capture my image, you capture – me -. Your attention to detail and beauty is inspiring. It showed me that there is in fact true beauty in the simplest detail of not only photos, but life itself. Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you and get to know you. You are an amazing fashion photographer, but more importantly you are an amazing person. Spending time with you doing something that we are both passionate about was definitely a highlight of my young career. Love, Admiration, and Gratitude always,

My wife is a budding fashion photographer, and during our recent trip to Los Angeles arranged a private 7 hour workshops with Shaun. While the studio he arranged was a bit of a distance from our location, it provided an excellent backdrop for a photo shoot. Shaun is a very experienced photographer, and a patient instructor for those, like my wife, who are still in the early stages of their particular journey. He gave her excellent advice on how one can use light for different types of effect, and how one goes about seeing the picture from all angles, rather than just taking it. He was also able to arrange for 2 different models to assist us and thus put together a full package. Shaun’s advice, enthusiasm, and teaching has certainly given my wife knowledge and inspiration.
