This "Lifestyle Docutorial" explores the world of Commercial, Lingerie, Editorial Fashion, and Swimwear Photography with Dixie Dixon and Pratik Naik. Together, they take you through their entire workflow from pre-production to retouching, while teaching you valuable key principals that will propel your work to the next level.
Join us for a behind-the-scenes look as celebrated Nikon Ambassador Dixie Dixon goes on location to Brazil.
During this time, you will be privy to a firsthand account of how a commercial photographer scouts locations, lights a model, selects a lens, collaborates with a team and creates lifestyle photography for a client.
Upon completion of this 22-hour photography tutorial, you will have a better understanding of how commercial lifestyle shoots take place, the preparation needed, crew overview, lighting options, lens & camera selection, and everything in post-production. You will have a new understanding of how to create commercially-viable lifestyle images.
Dixie Dixon is a Texas born and bred commercial fashion photographer. Just a few years out of college, this 20-something’s career is unfolding one adventure after another.
She was given her first Nikon Camera, a Nikon FG, at just 12 years old, which piqued her curiosity in the field and served as her sidekick in exploring the world. She would continually clock seven to 10 hours in the darkroom without even realizing it. While in college she studied in London with a world-renowned fashion photographer and became deeply inspired by the beautiful illusion of fashion and commercial photography.
“Honestly, I’m an incurable dreamer with a wild imagination. That’s what I truly love about fashion photography—there are no rules, no boundaries, just pure self-expression. Anything your mind can imagine, you have the power to bring to life in a single image or series of pictures. It makes me so happy to be able to work with such amazing creative people day in day out.”
"This is the tutorial everyone should have in their arsenal to master their skills in photography!" Carlos M.
In this tutorial, we start in the studio to cover the basics of Dixie's gear, then head down to Brazil for 14 days of shooting. You will see Dixie on location shooting Brazilian models, posing, lighting, and styling four different shoots that span lifestyle photography and commercial type imagery: Swimwear, Fashion, Lingerie, and Commercial Lifestyle are covered.
Watch Dixie and her team battle the elements and use an arsenal of various lenses to get the exact shot and lighting she needs.

Many of our students see a benefit or a payoff in their first shoot. This could be in the form of an increase in a day rate, booking more days, a higher sales price for their prints, or a higher quality of work. Success comes in many forms and is measured differently. You have to ask yourself, how much does it cost you NOT to have access to information that will make your life easier and more profitable? When you set out to learn something new every day and keep an open mind about learning from others, your pathway to success becomes a highway to happiness.
No one is too busy for bite-sized learning! We realize that learning takes time, so we encourage our users to download the mobile app and make a playlist for on-the-go opportunities.

You can learn anything on YouTube; we love it as well! The biggest question you need to ask is whether you want to do all of the searching it takes to find ENOUGH quality content you need. How valuable is your time, and how much do you want to waste? On top of this, how much do you like the platform? Can you download YouTube content and watch it offline? Does it come with downloads? Do you want to sit through all of the noise and distractions of YouTube? Do you have access to ask questions? YouTube is designed to sell ads, whereas PRO EDU is designed to unlock the secrets of success. We aren't paid by camera companies trying to sell you cameras and new shiny things. We make education to help others grow and advance in their career genuinely.
