In this workshop we will work with you one-on-one in a hands-on approach tailored to your body type, age group, and your most viable market category. If you're new to the nude modeling world, we'll help you understand the industry, the terminology, what to expect and teach you core modeling techniques, share key tips/tricks and ultimately build a dynamic working modeling portfolio that you can successfully get started with.
For already freelancing or working models, you already understand how difficult it is to break into the market. You also understand that posing for your friends and selfies is far different than modeling for professional photographers and meeting agency expectations. Expand your repertoire of poses, look more dynamic on camera, get a review & assessment of your current portfolio to improve on problem areas and see how to make the difference in getting noticed. We will focus on how to make shapes and how to hold interesting or dynamic positions with your body. We use music, images and props for inspiration.
Like anything you do successfully in life, it requires an education to learn the trade, a willingness to practice the techniques and a perseverance to make the dream come true.

In this Workshop we will focus on developing your skills photographing the female nude. This Workshop is for photographers who would like to share time and ideas with a small group of like-minded photographers and models. All aspects of fine art figure photography, including posing and coaching, will be covered. Personal guidance will be given to photographers who have not previously worked with models.
We will cover essential topics such as lighting (low key, high key, silhouettes, semi silhouette) , body landscapes, posing, fine art nude, clients comfortability, and additional services / merchandise to offer clients. You will learn how to see women from a woman and how to work with models by listening to their desires and fantasies.
What distinguishes us is our core belief that women are not objects, nor de-sexualized headless bodyscapes. Women are flesh, blood, passion, sensuality and power. Every woman we've ever photographed has a profound world view and our duty as photographers is to reveal that and enhance it, not to hide it or dismiss it.
This workshop is the perfect opportunity to meet and connect with other professionals in the area as well as network with models and explore new creative techniques and ideas.
