PV Diploma Students Work With Professionals

Story by PrairieView School of Photography May 27th, 2016

The idea

Over the course of three sessions, PV Guest Instructor Casey Nolin organized a couples, boudoir and styled wedding shoot for PV Diploma students. Working in a smaller group, students were afforded one-on-one instruction while building their portfolio and gaining valuable experience! Below you’ll find some of the highlights!

Unique vision

Every photographer offers an individual perspective. Though Casey and the students were at the same place, with the same models, at the same time, each provided a different final product indicative of their talent as artists.
