These are the sample photos that Steve built a set in 7 minutes! Yes, hard to believe, you have to see it to believe it!

During the group shoot session, you will have an opportunity to shoot all the beautiful models to see which one you wish to work with more.


As you can see, lighting will create the mood for the photos as well as the poses which Steve will be sharing as well.

We will have sets for your private shoot with lighting.  We are amateur friendly which means if you need any assistance on studio/flash lighting, proper exposure, or even ideas to pose the models, we'll be there to assist you, if needed.  If you already experienced, shoot away and have fun with the models.


The group shoot will start at 11am with a full line up of 4+ models (models will be there on time and ready), and we'll break for lunch at 1:30 pm which means you'll have plenty of time to shoot the models as they rotate through the awesome sets.  The private one-on-one will start at 2pm for half and hour with 10 minutes break.

    Steve organized a great shoot, his demonstrated ability to quickly put together believable background sets from simple inexpensive and easily acquired materials was very enlightening.
    The great sets, combined with Steve ability to use simple lighting equipment in confined spaces, was a beneficial lesson to every photographer working in a small home studios with a modest budget.
    The sets and lighting combined with beautiful and professional models (5) and only eight photographers gave everyone plenty of time shooting each of the models in the various background setups.

    I look forward to be the first to sign up for Steve's next shoot
