October 21st - October 26th, 2012
Come and join us in Cancun Mexico for a 4 day glamour photography workshop. This is an all-inclusive photography workshop that includes modeling fees, mentors, lodging, food, and flight. You will learn to improve your glamour photography with our experienced mentors who will spend the time you need to grasp the concepts of glamour lighting. Each day we travel as a group to a different location. This will give you, as a photographer, an immense opportunity to get a variety of different looks. This glamour photography workshop is not for the faint of heart. We get up at the crack of dawn to catch the good light, continue to chase and change the light throughout the day and wrap things up each night when the group has dinner and an evening discussion. Be prepared to work hard, learn lots, and take some of the best pictures of your life.

What you will learn…
This is a 4 day workshop/boot camp on glamour style photography for the purpose of portfolio, editorial, fashion and advertising. You cannot find another hands-on photography event that will give you the same knowledge and cover the extreme areas, including EVERYTHING that this program includes for this price anywhere!!
We will cover all aspects of available light and how to make it work for you not against you! We start out each day by looking at the light at hand, talking about the light and searching for the best possible use of that light. We will discuss Jerome’s theory of “found light”, and use that light to the best of our abilities each and every day.
We will work with reflectors, scrims, and diffusers to teach different ways to manipulate and control outdoor lighting. We will work indoors with available lighting including window light, and flash/strobe lighting. Lighting…the most important element in photography will be talked about each and every day all day in every single location.
You will learn how to control your flash and/or strobe as a fill light and as a main light both indoors and outdoors. You will learn to work with multiple flash and/or strobe units to create and add depth to your images.
You will have the opportunity to work with directional lighting like front light, side light, and back light and learn how different lighting scenarios will enhance, highlight, and change the facial features and highlight selected body parts of each model.
Each and every location throughout the 4 day workshop will bring new and exciting challenges in the eyes of posing, lighting, and control…and you will have the opportunity to work with models in each and every setting, helping you to expand your knowledge and photographic abilities in the realm of your camera, lighting, and composition.
