A group of photographers, models and make-up artists interested in photography of the nude. We'll touch on the fine points of lighting and posing through workshops mostly in my studio in downtown Vancouver. All skill levels are welcome. Members/participants must be 19 or older. We'll shoot with some of the top models in the city and some traveling models as well. Membership is free. Photographers pay for the shoots, models and Make-up artists will get paid.
The groups are small, maximum six photographers. There will usually be two set-ups, one high key and one low. We'll have the model for three hours. It will not be a teaching workshop, the lighting will be set and you can tweak it as much as you like, my assistant and I will be there to facilitate/assist. Each photographer has five minutes for each round, and will have the transmitter for the strobe and only he/she will direct the model. After each round we change lighting slightly and/or add props/clothing/fabric. You need a camera with a hot shoe for the transmitter. If the model is comfortable with it we'll allow "over the shoulder" shooting, using the model lights, as long as it doesn't distract the model or the main shooter. The photographers that aren't shooting may be pressed into service as assistants. I will go over model etiquette before the shoot.
