Ok, before it gets too hot we're having an event at the desert. We've been asked to do a desert event by photographers and models recently. The location is actually in Lucerne Valley 35 minutes from Victorville/Bear Valley. I used Victorville because most know where the city is as opposed to Lucerne Valley.

For some reason eveyone seems to enjoy the desert shoots overall than other locations. Don't miss out on this event, register now!

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.
• Make sure D-lighting or similar camera feature is turned off!
• If you have a 101 questions, please let us finish the workshop first then you may ask your questions after. Some photographers learn quicker than others so we can finish with them right away so they can jump right into shooting for the rest of the day. It typically takes 30-40 minutes to teach the workshop depending on the amount of students and answering basic questions.

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 group shoot 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.

The 6 sessions are:
3:30pm-4pm
4:10pm-4:40pm
5:50pm-5:20pm
5:30pm-6pm
6:10pm-6:40pm
6:50pm-7:20pm

7:30pm-8:00pm extra bonus session if models and photographers like. Sunset is at 8:08pm but because of mountains the sun could set alot earlier.

**************** Registration Information ****************

Lots of photographers...she must be nude on the horse smile

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 times afterwards. They always come check out our shoots when we are there and have always been cool with us.

Sounds like another wiener.  All my models want to shoot up there. Offering to shoot up there is one of the easiest ways to get a good model to shoot for TF.

I've got the chaps XS, and S! Basic Black! Now here's how we shoot them, Drew brings a saddle, a case of motor oil, jumper cables, and a car battery. Karl brings a trampoline. We get someone to play a horse with a model as a rider = wow images.

LoL. Who could that be?

18 sign ups already. Lots of models will be in this event and you know we bring the best ones.

Low entry fee and it comes with lunch. What a bargain. Lots of room. We will NOT sell out. Unlimited attendies. The more photog sign ups, the more models we wil invite.

I have a list of models but i'm holding back. Then i'll just flood this page tongue

Keep your eyes out because some of these models sell out their 1 on 1's in a day.

Photogs: you have to have your deposit in before messaging the models for 1 on 1s.
