Wildcat Studio Nude Workshop

For the past 13 years, Gina & Kim Weston have been teaching Fine Art Nude Photography Workshops at their home on Wildcat Hill, the former home of Kim's grandfather, Edward Weston. Wildcat Hill is famous for the light that emanates through the south/west facing windows and from the famous skylight that Edward photographed many of his famous portraits under. 


Just imagine when you attend our workshop you get to photograph under this same amazing light at this historic location! With more than 3 private locations to shoot in, we can easily accommodate 9 lucky workshop participants. While several of the locations are indoors we also have several beautiful outside areas to photograph in too!

  • Storytelling 
  • Expectations
  • Sharing your Work
  • Working within a group
