The Carriage House Studio and Gallery is pleased to announce that in response to demand from participants in our past workshops, we will offer our next Fine Art Nude Photography Course!

Photography Course: The Figurative and Fine Art Nude / Fall-Winter 2011/2012

Dates: September 2011 - March 2012

Enrollment: Limited to 6 Photographers

Description: Here is your opportunity to in the short period of time (6 months Sept - Feb) develop an complete, diverse and high quality portfolio of figurative and fine art nude images. We have designed the course to provide you with the key elements you need to develop your craft as a photographer that is both efficient in the use of your time, and an excellent value. The course includes the critical elements of guided instruction, first rate professional models, and a studio environment with the equipment and props that will you assist you in creating a great portfolio.

Topics to Covered: A series of monthly 4 hour thematic workshops (1 hour lecture/discussion followed by 3 hours of photo shoot) including:

i) Lighting and Posing the Nude (Sep / Oct)

ii) Bodyscapes (Oct)

iii) Nudes in Nature (Nov)

Portfolio Review (Apr)

Fine Art Nude Exhibition (May)

The program also includes a monthly one on one 3 hour photo session for each photographer with an emerging local fine art nude model at the Carriage House Studio (Mon. to Fri. between 9 and 5 pm.) At the end of the workshop series you will participate in a professional portfolio review of your work, and will be asked to select 4 images to be exhibited in a gallery exhibit at the Carriage House.

Models: The workshop series will feature top national and international models such as those who have been our events at the Carriage House during 2009 – 2011, including: Ariel, Art Muse, Melissa Jean, Isabella V, Katlyn Lacoste, Engel Schrei, Stephanie VBN, Trishii, and others as may be appropriate for specific workshops (See list of links below). Working with models of this quality will help you build a strong portfolio quickly, develop good skills in directing models, and quickly gain credibility with other professional or emerging models.
