Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth of the United States (you don't need a passport) and a short flight from all states in the Southeast.

EARLYBIRD RATE OF $1299 - This rate will go up by December 1st !!!!!

Join me and several outstanding models for a 4 day/3 night event in warm and sunny Puerto Rico!! Accommodations will be at one of Puerto Rico's top boutique hotels, The Gallery Inn (www.thegalleryinn.com

Renowned Glamour/Bikini Photographer Jay Suder (http://www.modelmayhem.com/489174) and I will be instructing and mentoring you during the intensive 2 full days plus of shooting.  This is a "hands on" experience where you will work one on one with all of the amazing models in each of the truly unique locations we have chosen.  If you are looking to take your portfolio to the next level, want to polish your skills with some of the country's top models, or want to learn new techniques, then this is the event for you!  Amateurs through seasoned professionals can benefit from this trip.



Tentative Agenda:

Optional Extra Day  - Plan to arrive on Jan 9th and join the girls for a fun VIP party at the Inn.  The rate of $400 includes an extra night's accommodations as well as a bonus shoot on Friday with all the models.


Friday January 10th - Fly in Day - Arrive in San Juan and check in at The Gallery Inn hotel. That evening you will join me and all of the models for a wonderful VIP reception by the courtyard pool so that everyone has a chance to meet and discuss the weekends events and shooting schedule. Late night photos by the pool or in your guestroom are certain to be a hit.

Saturday Morning, 11th - After a pre-shoot meeting, we will be shooting in the brightly painted city of Old San Juan and other historic areas near the hotel. El Morro fort, Castillo de San Critobal, and Santa Maria Magdalena Cemetery are a short walk from the Inn. Think upscale editorial and fashion.  See my Puerto Rico folder for examples.

Saturday Afternoon, 11th - After a break for lunch and private shooting time, we will head over to the more secluded and/or private beaches in the area for some late afternoon beach shots among the crashing waves of the north shore until sunset.

Saturday Night, 11th - We will regroup and discuss the days shooting, answer questions, and prepare for the Sunday's shoot in the Rainforest.  The models will be available to shoot privately around the Inn, in the unique lighted pool area, or in your rooms.


Sunday Morning, 12th - A short drive past San Juan will take us to the El Yunque Rain Forest. Tropical scenery at its finest among the trees, flowers, waterfalls, etc of this pristine landscape. There are 2 waterfalls within a 5 minute walk from where we will park.

Sunday Afternoon, 12th - Break for lunch and private shooting time, then back to the beach for more sunset and surf shots!

Sunday Evening, 12th - Recap of the weekend's shooting and some glamour photography setups by the pool.  Optional private shoots with the models.

Monday, 13th - Depending upon your flights, there will be time to shoot again that morning in Old San Juan and/or the beach before heading to the airport.

Your fee includes working with all of the attending models throughout the trip during the organized shoots. Models are also available to book privately for additional shooting at your discretion and according to their limits during any/all scheduled downtime. This is an excellent time to shoot some nudes/implied in your hotel suite, by the pool, around the town, or on location.



This is destination shooting at its best and the flights to PR are VERY reasonable currently.  We are limiting the number of photographers who will be able to attend this unique and exclusive event to 10 and will have close to a 1-1 ratio of photographers to models (8-10).

Your deluxe artists room at the Gallery Inn includes breakfast each day.  Upgraded suites are available on a first come basis.


Local Photographer Rate - $945 (no room included)

I have a proven track record with conducting well organized workshops in the Mid-Atlantic region with over 70 held in the past 2 years.  Our last event in Puerto Rico was a huge success with both models and photographers asking to come back for the next one. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly as I will be happy to answer them.

I look forward to having you join this exclusive group in January!
