Lighting The Nude Workshops

These small group workshops are designed to provide lots of one-on-one access and give everyone a more hands-on learning experience. No lecturing with slide show, we just dive right in and get started. All participants will receive their book at the beginning of the workshop which we’ll be working from. It’s full of images, diagrams and important information that we’ll be covering throughout the workshop in depth. Each of you will have an impact on the direction of the experience, so come ready to jump in with both feet and explore with us!
