This highly personalised nude photography masterclass will focus on developing your skills photographing the female nude whilst exploring the diverse and raw beauty of Ibiza’s extraordinary landscape.
Learn how to see women from a female perspective. What distinguishes this workshop from other workshops is my core belief that women are not objects, nor de-sexualized headless body-scapes. As one of the few female photographers capturing women nude, I am abstaining from the objectification of the female form and instead create compelling visuals that serve to highlight the synergy and narrative between femininity in all its manifestations in symbiosis with Ibiza’s stunning natural landscape. To foster the appreciation of the natural female form, I further decline to retouch my nude images.
Like Ibiza’s raving beauty, female beauty often comes into play in unexpected and bewildering ways. A lot of my work is about capturing beauty in its dynamic, imperfect perfection and transience, and so allowing people to take notice, and to experience unpredicted forms of female beauty.
My workshop is teaching you how to capture the raw sensuality of (naked) women beyond boudoir glamour and an overly sexualised perception applied to the female body.
What makes my Masterclass unique
In order to create those fleeting, sensual off-moments, it needs an intense and trust fuelled connection between the model and photographer where both parties have time to develop a mutual understanding and rapport. In order to achieve this, I am keeping my workshops small. Each photographer will get quality time with each of the models on all days of the shoot.The total number of students per workshop will not surpass 8.
These intimate nudes photography workshops are from 6-8 students, so that each student will receive the highest caliber of instruction without struggling to work around other students or fighting for limited model time. We will begin the workshop with some theory and a review of your portfolio where you will receive individualised feedback in order to be able to progress during the days of your workshop. Expect to receive meaningful instruction on everything from effectively collaborating with a nude model(s) to image composition and lighting in exquisite indoor and exterior environments.
Duration & Content Overview
My nude masterclasses are intensive courses with theoretical and practical training. During the masterclass you will receive customised “hands on” training to help you greatly improve your photographic skills.
