The Fine-Art B+W Nude and Figure Photography Workshop!
This fine art workshop centers around black and white nude and figure photography.
For this workshop, we will be working on-location rather than a traditional studio. Let yourself be inspired by the surroundings! We will be using mostly natural lighting, but for those interested in strobes we'll have a few setups with flash as well.
The goal of this workshop is not only to have all participants walk home with stunning images; our aim is to introduce you to a different way of seeing, to ignite your passion for the creative process that is photography.
Master Photographer Ralph Gibson believes that "...all photographers should know how to photograph two things: the nude and architecture...". After this is accomplished, any subject can be attempted.
Your instructor Marc has been photographing the nude and figure for many years. What has started as a purely personal journey has significantly affected Marc's personal style and creative vision as a photographer.
In addition to Marc's B&W landscape images, his nude and figure work has been widely exhibited in Vancouver and internationally in the US and several European countries.
Marc will share his personal inspirations, approaches and techniques during this intensive weekend workshop. You'll be working in small groups with a variety of models. The focus during this class is on giving students as much shooting time as possible.
Marc prefers to photograph models on location, allowing himself to be inspired by his surroundings. We'll be utilizing natural light as much as possible, but have professional flash and studio strobe equipment on hand should the need to use it arise.
We'll shoot extensively Saturday and Sunday, so make sure to bring enough batteries and memory cards! A computer will be available to download images and burn onto CD/DVD or transfer to a portable hard-drive.
Critiques by the instructor are available and ongoing throughout each day.
We'll meet again within a few weeks of the workshop to review our images as a group. The exact date of this follow-up meeting will be discussed and agreed upon with all participants on the first day of the workshop.
