I love sharing my passion for fine art nude photography, and along with the workshops I do, I also teach private nude photography instruction. Sometimes it’s because an individual’s schedule doesn’t mess with my workshops. But often it is that someone has specific goals in their pursuit of making nude photographs and wants a program […]
Back in late April I taught a fine art nude workshop near Joshua Tree, California. A wonderful group of talented photographers came in from across the country and from Europe and Canada to attend. It was a great time! Since I never shoot for myself during a workshop and only focus on the participants, I […]
My good friend George Jardine has been making exceptional instructional videos for quite a while. Now George has launched a new one called The Image Correction Master Class-For Lightroom 4&5. OK, so he used one of my stock production photographs (above) for the series, and yes he is a friend. But if you are looking […]
One of the things I am aware of when I’m teaching fine art nude photography workshops is the speed at which participants work. I’m all in favor of not overstaying your stay when you are working an idea, and at the same time I know it’s important not to rush along to the next location. […]
Our last day of the Joshua Tree fine art nude workshop was a lot of fun. Participants really seemed to be in their rhythm, finding great locations, working with the natural light, and posing the fantastic dancers we had with us. It was a wonderful culmination to a great course, and we had a laughter-filled […]

Warm temperatures that are perfect for keeping the models comfortable, and light breezes for the time that the photographers are working with fabric. It’s fun to see how quickly people’s work can evolve in photography classes, incorporating […]
Another image taken during my Watch Me Work session before the beginning of the workshop. The shooting I do before a fine art nude workshop starts means participants already have a lot of their scouting done for them. It translates to less time looking and more time shooting. Everyone had a great day yesterday. The […]
The Joshua Tree Fine Art Nude Workshop has begun! Our merry band of photographers and models came together and did their first shoot in the boulders and Joshua Trees. Amazing light, gifted dancers. Lots of smiles and laughs. We’re off to a great start!
This past week, I served as juror for a fine art nude photography exhibit at The Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont. There were 543 entries, and it took three days to cull the work down to the final selection. My first impression as I did my quick overview was the breadth of styles in […]
