For new photographers who want to attend our workshop
• 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 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.
• We'll show you different light modifiers and their uses. Octobox, Octodome, beauty dish and grids will be covered.
• Check out the new Vagabond Mini! Cheaper and cost less than the original Vagabond II!
• Circular Polarizer and ND filter will be discussed and how it will improve your images when shooting outdoors or at the beach. I recommend Hoya brand.
• 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, renting Pocket Wizards is 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 the Pocket Wizards from us for $10. Limited availability.
• An alternative to Pocket Wizards are Cybersyncs but they have to be purchase as camera stores do not rent them. We also have Cybersyncs to rent out. Limited availability
• Students should have prior knowledge on how to adjust their camera to manual mode and adjust aperture, shutter speed and ISO. 

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, if needed)

Hire models after the event for 1 on 1 shoots at 1/2 hour increments

My hand is no longer in a cast, so I'm in. Then again, I'll still shoot even with a broken hand.

Great location and Playmates too. Drew and Karl are stepping it up.

We'll have some non Playboy models as well. We wanted to emphasize that we're getting 10 Playboy models smile

Drew has a big list of Playboy models of his dreams. It's the first time I've seen tears in his eyes when he found out we have access to these models. lol

I was planning on just hiding out that entire weekend and not doing anything social, but I might be enticed by the model listing to drive to Encino for this event.

Non-Playmate looks this hot?!  Imagaine the Playmates and the cyber girls.  Drew and Karl always put on a great show for us.  There is no "I'll think about it or we'll see."

Karl is a little slow updating the OP. I have been getting deposits without knowing the "donation" amount. If you sent me a message, I didn't get it. MM messages are still messed up. Karl tried to send me a message last night and it didn't go through. Hold off on your messages until MM fixes the problem. In the meantime, if you're interested in attending, please post on the thread or send your deposit so I have a head count. We might sell out witout posting the Playmate/s and models. LOL

Btw, the "donation" for this event is $120. $60 deposit to my paypal address. You know we will sell out quick. smile

She is hot. Is she a playmate?

Looks like the messages on MM are working again. Send me a message/deposit to save your spot for this one of a kind event.

Hi Drew and Karl:

This is turning into a "name-your-Playboy-model" shoot.  I love it, LOL.  Personally, I don't really need to see what the models look like.  Drew and Karl never disappoint.  Moreover, it they were good enough for Hef, they're good enough for me.
