Spend a day shooting models and using studio lighting. We (John Penner & Trina Holt) have secured two models and a convenient location (thanks to Ilene Duguay). Come and spend a Saturday with us learning more about indoor studio lighting as well as outdoor lighting for model work. Learn to work with models: how to give instructions, how to pose models, what to watch for, etc. Even if you don't want to be a fashion photographer this will be a great way to learn techniques for shooting people.
There is a $10 fee for this workshop to cover the models' fees, payable on arrival, and you will need to sign a waiver to cover the insurance requirements for the location. We'll start at 9:00 a.m. and go until we're done, probably around 4:00 or 5:00. Participation is limited to only 12 so that everyone has a chance to work with the models.
If you no-show or cancel at the last minute, we'll shame you publicly and hunt you down for the $10 anyways. We'll use the dogs if we must.
Capital Mental Health Association is located at 125 Skinner Street, on the northwest side of the Bay Street Bridge. It's a grey cement building with a peaked roof. There is no name on the building but there is a building number.
If you are coming from Douglas, turn onto Bay St. and go over the Bay Street bridge. Immediately turn right at the light onto Skinner St. Tyee Rd. branches off to the right while Skinner continues to the left. The building is located in the fork of the two therefore you can park on either side, although there is a parking lot on Tyee Rd. The correct entrance to the building is from the parking lot off of Tyee Rd. If you park on Skinner St. you will go down side stairs to get to the correct entrance. Don't go to the front entrance on Skinner St. because we will be downstairs.
If you are taking the bus, catch the number 14 and pull the ringer as you are going over the bridge, get off at the next stop and walk up a bit and follow the above directions. If you are coming the opposite direction on the 14 bus from Craigflower area, ask the bus driver to let you off just before the Bay St. Bridge.
