Kim Weston - Nude in Symmetry

Weston Nude Workshop Oct. 23-25, 2015

We have so much news to share! But we wanted to make sure we gave everyone plenty of time to sign up for our upcoming 2015 Fall Nude Photography Workshop! We had such a great time in May!

For the past 14 years, Gina & Kim Weston have been teaching Fine Art Nude Photography Workshops at their home on Wildcat Hill, the former home Edward Weston. Wildcat Hill is famous for the light that emanates through the skylight and windows.

Just imagine when you attend our workshop, that you get to photograph under this same amazing light, at this historical location in Edward Weston’s home! With more than 3 private locations to shoot in, we can easily accommodate up to 9 workshop participants. While most of the locations are indoors we also have several beautiful outside areas to photograph in too! This nude photography workshop is well organized with plenty of time and space that gives you time to relax and think about what you are photographing. This enables you to slow down, take your time and get your best photographs! Perfect for beginners who may be a little nervous about attending a nude workshop and great for all levels of photographers.

“Thank you Gina! I had a great time at the workshop and really enjoyed soaking in some Weston family history. Thank you for opening your home to us. Dinner on Saturday night was much appreciated and delicious. The models and locations were wonderful and I think I created some strong images. I’ll share some with you once I get a chance to edit them. Kim also gave me some good ideas about composition and cropping that will help to enhance my photography. Overall it was one of the best workshops I have attended”.
Please keep in touch,
