This three-day workshop at Holz Farm will consist of intensive small-group and one-on-one instruction, shooting, and group critique. Topics will include lighting, directing, composing, and creating a unique personal style.
Workshop Location: the Holz Farm
Holz Farm is a coveted 25-acre location in upstate NY that is often rented for photography and film shoots. The farm includes a wide variety of settings, including a 19th Century post-and-beam barn, mid 20th Century cabin, pastures, streams, a lake, endless forest, big skies, mountain views, photo-friendly livestock, a 1959 Airstream Caravanner, a 1969 International truck, as well as indoor locations and screened-in summer studio in the main house. Previous clients include Australian Vogue, Italian Vanity Fair, American Eagle, and photographers include Mario Sorrenti, Lachlan Bailey, and Daniela Federici.
Because the farm is located in the Catskill mountains, photographers often comment on the beauty of climatic variations (fog, clouds, mist), wildlife, and quickly changing light.
This is a rare opportunity to work with two great photographers whose legacies span generations.
Both experienced teachers, George and Kim will share their techniques and processes as they guide you towards your own unique style. Working on location at Holz Farm, you’ll explore the natural textures of water, earth, wood, and sky while learning to combine nude and landscape photography. Most importantly, you’ll develop your visualization and directing skills as you work with models to develop trust.
You’ll share your work in a supportive environment where you will build the kind of collaborative friendships George and Kim enjoy. These friendships are foundational to artistic growth and motivation.
Expect to open your awareness, hone your technical skills, and be inspired.
