Everyone who’s attended this in the past has agreed that it’s a must for any photographer working with people.  You’ll learn about how makeup works for photography, how to find and work with makeup artists, and a variety of products and techniques that you can use yourself when you don’t have a makeup artist.  You’ll watch as Natalia transforms a model, and you’ll see before and after photos.

The Creative Nude… by Struan…new date!

March 24, 2010

This workshop was a great hit last month!  Everyone involved had a fun time, and some great photographs were made!  So Struan has decided to run it again!

The (very full) day will start with a presentation and shooting demo by Struan, where he will explain how he shoots, works with models, and produces his unique and provocative nude studies.  He’ll work with our models, showing a variety of lighting set-ups and shooting styles.

We’ll take a brief lunch break (served in the studio), then you’ll have a chance to apply what you’ve learned!  We’ll break up into small groups to photograph the models on a variety of sets.  Struan (and I) will be on hand to offer suggestions, help with lighting and answer questions.  At the end of the day review your work and hold a brief critique.  Here’s a PDF with the complete workshop details.

Workshop Date: Sunday, May 30   9:30 – 6:30            Location: My studio in Downtown Toronto

Workshop Fee:  $350 (+gst) includes Lunch ($100 deposit to reserve a space)

There are limited spaces in this workshop, and  it will be popular, so enroll soon!  Contact me below to enroll:

Poured Resin Workshop

January 20, 2010

This very exciting workshop will teach you one of the hottest looks in fine art photography right now.  It consists of a method to mount photographic prints on artist’s boards, then enclose them in a poured resin finish.  It  looks as if the prints were coated in molten glass.  It’s a great way to present and enhance your work!  And best of all, it’s a technique you can do at home with some basic materials and know-how.

Talia Shipman will once again lead this workshop.  She’s perfected this technique through years of trial and error, and you will benefit from her experience as she demonstrates the technique and guides you through creating your own finished artwork.  You’ll provide us with an image, and we’ll make an 11×14 print which you will mount and resin coat during the workshop.  You’ll love the results!

You’ll also receive a step-by-step guide with photographs and a materials list so that you can do this technique on your own at home. It’s a fun process and the results are quite stunning! If you’d like to see some samples I have them here in my studio, so give me a call or e-mail and drop by and see them.  Here’s a PDF with more information about the workshop.

Workshop Date:  Sunday, April 25      9:30 – 5:00

Location: My studio (downtown Toronto)

Workshop Fee: $360 incl. materials (& gst)

Makeup Workshop for Photographers

January 17, 2010

This is a great workshop for anybody who photographs people! Whether your interest is in fashion, portraiture, weddings or corporate photography, you get lots of helpful information that will improve your work and save you hours of retouching.

Learn how to find and work with a make-up artist to enhance your photos of people (especially if they’re not supermodels!).  Natalia Zurawska will share the secrets she’s learned through working with top photographers and directors, shooting supermodels, celebrities, and just plain folk (like you and your clients).  You’ll learn exactly how the make-up artist does her magic, see before and after photos of a live demo shoot, and learn how to work with this key member of your creative team.

As well, you’ll learn some invaluable make-up tips and techniques that you can use yourself, for those times when you don’t have a make-up artist on hand.  Assemble a simple kit of items you can use for quick touch ups and fixes that you can always have with you.   For portraits, weddings or just casual shots of people, these tips can save you hours of retouching, and could save your shoot.

You’ll also get a complete set of notes, and a shopping list!

This is definitely a fun workshop (Natalia’s a delight), you’ll learn lots, and your clients (and friends) will thank you!  We ran this workshop for the first time last fall, and it was a great success!

I’ve posted two detailed information sheets about this workshop here and here.
