The Palm Desert Workshop Experience



In September we met up with Mark Comon and co-taught a 5 day nude figure workshop in Desert Hot Springs and at the Joshua Tree National Park. We rented a small hotel where we photographed in the mornings and spent the evenings out in Joshua Tree. While it was hot during our time there, we were able to keep cool by shooting only in the morning and late afternoon light. We swam in the mineral spring pools and kept ourselves hydrated. 

We had great model to photographer ratios and we worked in groups throughout the week. It seemed everyone was well paired and we had a very creative week.

Each night Kim cooked us a wonderful meal. Chicken, Tri Tip, Hamburgers to name a few and he made a delicious green salad and a veggie stir fry every night too! After our meals together we critiqued 5 images from each photographer from the mornings shoot. We really enjoyed looking at the work, talking about it and seeing how we could improve on it for the next shoot. Next year we are planning a new exciting new location. We loved the Sagewater Spa but we need a bit more room so we can all be together the whole time.

Thank you to all the joined us! Looking forward to seeing some of your images soon!
