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:
• 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 or Cyber Syncs 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.


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.

One of our attendees getting arrested... nah, j/k. This is a very cool sheriff who has stopped by to see what was happening. I've met the Sheriff more than a year ago. Him and his partner watched me and another photographer shoot for 30 minutes then they went on their way. I run into him and a CHP officer several time afterwards. They always come check out our shoots when we are there and have always been cool with us.

At this rate, there will be three consecutive heat waves (or three out of four) at Drew and Karl's.

It will be bad, since it's officially now Summer. We had a very late Spring. So either 115 in the shade there or flash floods because of the moisture leaving the ground so quick.

But hey, I am still game to attend!!!

I just got to my spot. The temperature will be fine. The only people who have to worry on that day is the restaurant that the group heads out to eat at. Applebee's wasn't the same after everyone left. lol

Someone just need to bring that Canon 500mm and shoot comfortably from an air conditioned car. Finally a legitimate reason to use it at a group shoot.

i'm not sure what your talking about Juan...does it look like my models have a lot on out there in the desert???  I don't shoot fashion....I shoot Glamour in a different style then bikini's.



Every Photographer should take advantage of this Shoot!!  The DESERT is the best place to shoot!!!

When Drew was going to the Beach, I was going to the Desert.  This past year I honed my skills out there.  I kept hearing,  it's too far to drive, it's too windy, it's too hot or models don't want to travel that far.....a little adversity only made me better.  Most of my profile pics are from the desert. 

I'll be out there, but I'll be Lone Wolf with my model like always smile

i'm assuming she would have to be screened first.... but if she passed, i wouldnt see why not.

as long as she can appeal to more people than just you. i mean, we often get somebody for dan's liking, looks like we already got a couple for mine and the darker crowd's liking. if she looks good in clothes, shit i might even shoot her. i've been on a weird kick of shooting girls in clothes recently. i think its because all this heat is getting to me, lol.
