We've sold out people! It took only 3 days and we're still getting more people who want to register. I'll be talking to the owner of the mansion when he gets back from his trip and see if we can have more than 30 photographers attend. We're going to shoot for 40+ photographers. Please message Drew to be put on a waiting list!

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 and equipment. Try Before You Buy. smile
• 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 for workshop:
• 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 you are in the market to purchase wireless transmitter i recommend purchasing the Cybersyns from Paul C. Buff. If the Pocket Wizards or Cyber Syncs are unavailable to rent, you may rent Pocket Wizards from Drew and I. Limited availability, don't assume we'll have enough PW's.
• 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.

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.


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.

Deposit sent. And this time I've money for 1-on-1 sessions.

If you thought Drew and Karl's events in 2010 were incredible, wait until you see the locations planned for 2011. I've seen some of the upcoming locations and they're sick. Many of these locations have not been used in prior photoshoots.

Most definitely an event not to be missed.

Not only do you get to network with some awesome photographers and hot & friendly models but they're also - and ALWAYS - filled with great vibes, a friendly and welcoming environment, and non stop laughs!

Those who have attended past events will agree with me, you'd have to be there to believe!

Don't miss it!!

Wow.... this is incredible and irresistible.  Definitely save me a spot.  Some parts of this mansion look like Hearst Castle encore!  For example, the pool looks like a mini Neptune Pool.  This is where great pictures can be created.   

Great job, Drew and Karl.  Looking forward to it!

Drew, and Karl
    If you guys can get this model "MM #1614623" to show up at the Jan. 22 shoot, you both will become Photo Event Gods. Others will be demoted to a lesser deity's, maybe even to mere flute playing wood-sprites.

Hi Karl, might be there during that week and I'm interested in possibly attending. I'm curious about this one bulletpoint mentioned above though, does this mean we can't use these images for our portfolios? Kinda defeats the purpose of taking pictures, doesn't it?

Also, if that is the case and we have to get a model release from each and every model, what do those releases usually cost?

Thanks,

Michael

You may use any images you take during the group shoot portion for portfolio use.

that mini bowling alley is no joke, and VERY addicting. 1 of the little things around this house that you can get lost doing. there are plenty of areas to shoot, some obvious, some not so obvious. a great location, and the girls are looking lovely like always.

starting off the new year with a bang!

1 day of Karl posting the thread, 15 paid deposits already. We are 1/2 way sold out. I haven't even posted it at my 2 other sources which won't be until next week. I hope they won't get upset if it sold out before then. Maybe I should beg the homeowner to increase the number of photogs to 60...
