Another outstanding Nude Workshop in Desert Hot Springs!

Join Kim Weston (grandson of Edward Weston) and Mark Comon for a creative retreat and photo workshop in the beautiful high desert. Capture the stunning big skies and scenery of the desert and unleash your creativity with expressive figures. Last year's photo workshop was so fun and productive we hope you can join us this year!

Instructors: Mark Comon & Kim Weston ( Kim will be cooking all of the meals)

The Details

Our shooting locations are the Anahata Springs Resort, a serene mineral water spa in the middle of the beautiful Desert Hot Springs and Joshua Tree National Park, a fantastic desert location with jumbo rocks and other-worldly vistas. We will practice figure modeling and photography amidst the mid-century designs of this spa retreat, in and around the resort, by the pool, and then we will venture out to photograph within the natural wonders of the surrounding desert area.

Every photographer will find the location and instruction informative and inspirational. Youโ€™ll have more than enough time to shoot creatively, adjust your exposure and direct the posing. Participants will learn to work as a team in photography, camera-handling techniques, control of natural light, working with a model and how to create photos with emotional effect. Each evening will feature lecture, discussion and critique.

This is a unique workshop, if you have ever wanted to learn expressive photography and photograph figures in the โ€œWestonโ€ style you will love the opportunity!

5 nights, 4 days of photographing with dinner meals included in the cost of workshop.
