Weston Nude Photography Workshop - Cost $700 - SOLD OUT Please go to Eventbrite LINK to be put on Waiting List or email Gina Weston
Announcing our 2015 Fall Photography Workshop! 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.
Kim Weston will be your private instructor during this workshop and will work with each photographer in the group. Some of the topics that will be covered are:
- Working with natural light
- How to work with models
- Preconceived Ideas
- Sharing your work
- Working in a group
- Critiquing your work
We work with very experienced models during our Wildcat Studio Nude Photography Workshops. They are skilled in collaborating with the novice to the most experienced 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, Peter, May 2015
