This will probably be our last outdoor event for this year before we go indoors.

For those who haven't been to our events, we are the #1 workshop/group shoot event in Southern California. We have been going on 1 year strong. Photographers from around the world come to our events.

• Desert workshop/group shoot 9/27 Victorville, CA - Our first video! 18+


For new photographers who want to attend our workshop
• Learn to use lighting like the pros.
• We're here to share our tips to beginning photographers.
• Ever wonder how Drew and I light our models without the background being blown out on a sunny day? Speed lights not cutting it huh? sad We will give you hands on experience in using affordable and portable mono strobe lights, beauty dish/Octobox and other equipment. Try Before You Buy. smile
• I will be demonstrating Alien Bees Cyber Commander.
• You'll be so impressed with your images after the event that you'll be ready to order the same lighting equipment we use.
• I'll show you different light modifiers and their uses. Octobox, beauty dish and grids will be covered. I'll discuss the difference between the silver BD and white BD. Why i use the BD over an Octobox at the beach or desert.
• Circular Polarizer(CP)and Neutral Density(ND) filters will be discussed and how it will improve your images when shooting outdoors or at the beach. I recommend Hoya brand. CP, ND4
• Once you attend our workshop, you'll be able to build up your port with beautiful models quickly.
• Students can take the remainder of day to shoot models.

Preperations:
• To make use of the workshop, Pocket Wizards or Cyber Syncs are recommended. You can rent the PW's from Calumet or Samy's if needed. If the Pocket Wizards are unavailable to rent, you may rent Pocket Wizards or Cyber Syncs from Drew and I. Limited availability, don't assume we'll have enough triggers.
• Students should have prior knowledge on how to adjust their camera in manual mode. You'll need to know how to adjust aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
• I recommend you purchase a CP, ND or both that i listed above. Purchase the appropriate diameter for your lens.
• Adjust your camera LCD brightness setting. Take a picture of something and try to closely match it to your monitor screen. So what you see on your camera will look about the same to what is on your computer monitor. I also recommend calibrating your monitor using Spyder 3 or something similar.


Don't care about the workshop?
• For photographers who don't care about the workshop, they can shoot the available models for the group shoot portion. (Please note that the workshop will be using Channel 1 on the Pocket Wizards. On the CyberSyncs we'll reserve Channel 9 also, if needed)
• Shoot beautiful models all day long.
• Please be courteous, if you're going to set up your lighting equipment at a awesome location, to either share or move locations every 1/2 hour.
• The location can be windy at times so please bring sand bags for your light stands.


Hire models after the event for 1 on 1 shoots at 1/2 hour increments
Message the models and see if you can hire the model you want after the group event for 1 on 1 sessions.

Just put the word out that you need a ride to the shoot, I'm sure at least three to seven photographers will do the right thing.

Correction, as Jay Suder pointed it out... It's Mr. Drew Sandtoes.

I'll have a guided tour in the month of November, December and January. Spectators will be able to observe Mr. Sandtoes shooting models in the dead of winter. Poor models. If he ever does leave the beach he takes bags of sand with him where ever he goes so he can wiggle his toes in the sand. lol

I wonder if Discovery Channel would be interested in the footage?
