Event Details

This four-day workshop will provide photographers of all levels with a detailed immersion into fine art photography focusing on the human form. Participants will be introduced and guided through the creative, photographic approach ofaward-winning photographer, Bryon Paul McCartney. The four-day workshop will cover the following components:

Day One

  • Portfolio Review - Bryon will assess each photographer's portfolio (5 images max.) and provide feedback and goals for their workshop experience. Prior experience with nude photography is NOT required.
  • All About Models - Bryon will present his own process for finding, selecting, contracting, and working with models. He will also discuss how he works with models to create the poses he wants

The first day will include exercises and shooting sessions, in the studio with our models, designed to help photographers become comfortable and confident in working with nude models.

Day Two

  • Deconstructing the Masters - Bryon will teach participants how to deconstruct lighting techniques. This process is critical to learning how to "see the light" and enables photographers to understand lighting setups used by master photographers.
  • Camera Craft and Lighting Technique - Through demonstrations and hands-on exercises, Bryon will show participantshow to precisely control the camera and lighting for predictable results.

Throughout day two, participants will have ample opportunity to photograph models directly. Bryon will be on-hand to answer questions, troubleshoot settings and offer suggestions. Participants will be encouraged and supported in creating fine art photographs of the human form.

Day Three

  • Post-processing - During the morning, Bryon will demonstrate his process for selecting his best images and how he processes them using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Photographers will select three favorite images from the week of shooting to edit and present at the end of the workshop

Throughout day three, participants will continue shooting with models and exploring creative form and lighting technique. Each participant will have dedicated, one-on-one time with Bryon to review their work and get detailed feedback.

Day Four

  • During the morning, shooting will continue. Bryon will also be available for further guidance and input regardingparticipants' final image selections, post-processing and other relevant topics.
  • During the afternoon, photographers will gather together to review everyone's work from the week. Bryon will assess the results and provide additional advice and feedback to each photographer. Participants  will have an opportunity to see what their fellow colleagues have produced and will gain further insight from the critiques and discussions.
  • A final farewell will include exchanging contact information between participants, models and instructor. Everyone is welcome to join together for a group dinner (participants responsible for their own costs) and final farewell.
