Photography Workshops

The 2010 Workshops were off the chart this year! With so many participants joining us here at Wildcat Hill to explore the range of what Nude photography means to them. As you know this can be a daunting subject to tackle, but tackle it we did and we had amazing results. We had some amazing models to work with.Thank you for traveling such far distances to be our models this year!
Thank you all again for coming to work, play and photograph with us, I feel we really made some milestones in producing some outstanding images.

New Website

Our new website is almost done! I swear next Christmas I am going to have time to spend with my family and friends! No more spending all of my time constantly on the computer. But that was the reason to switch, so once it is done I will be posting like no one's business. Thanks to Roger Smith of RAS Design Media. You have been a joy to work with.

The past few days I have been populating pages with all of our previous guests at Wildcat Hill. We have so many fond memories of the visitors to our home. I will be sure to let you know when it is up and ready to view.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Thanks again for buying Kim's work, coming to our workshops and signing up for our newsletter! We love keeping in touch with you! Thanks for your friendship!

Take Care,
Gina, Kim and Zach!

PS. Zach has moved back home from SDSU. He will attend Monterey Peninsula College next semester and he has applied to California State University of Monterey Bay! He has changed his major to Environmental Science, Technology and Policy. I will say the last 3 months have been challenging in more ways than I care to tell you. But we are happy, healthy and grateful for all that we have. For those of you that met photographer Rachael Short and want to follow along with her recovery you can read her blog at
