Hi SteveC,

Yes sir, we have three workshops on the calendar and each of them with their own unique structure to better serve the wide variety of Photographers and their individual learning styles here in the area.

This event is our first and is followed by two instructional workshops: 'Modernizing The Boudoir Photograph' and 'Building The Product Photograph'. These two events coupled with the event featured in this thread are launching off our entire 2013 series.

Based on local feedback from area Photographers and choosing to gain their insights before we got started we learned that while some photographers wished to learn by listening to an instructor in a seminar setting and watching them demonstrate new principles and techniques there were also Photographers who wished to jump right in and create images from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave but retain the ability to pause and ask instructions or seek guidance during the process. So with these two distinct learning styles in mind we designed a portion of our studio workshops to cater to each.   

This first event '5 Models, 5 Sets, 5 Photographers' is structured for the Photographers who learn best by diving right in and exploring new setups, visual schemes, and lighting styles by standing in front of them, photographing them and reverse engineering what they see before them. We all learn by different means and to help bridge the gap there will be a studio staff member on hand to answer any and all questions regarding aesthetic and stylistic principles right down to describing the function of the various lighting modifiers, support gear, lighting choices, and set design elements.

The fee structure for each of our events is listed publicly on our group page found here: … up-Dayton/

The price for this specific event covers all of the photographer's costs including the five models, the makeup artist, the provision of five standing sets and the pièce de résistance - three hours of studio time for each photographer to explore what they've learned during the event or to use on their own projects and do so according to their own schedule as long as the hours are redeemed within thirty days of the workshop date with which they are coupled. All of this is available for $250.

I hope I've answered your questions.

Thank you for asking,

To accompany the evening's bump I throw in this wonderful quote on personal, professional, and artistic perspective.

“You don't take a photograph, you make it.” - Ansel Adams

We'd love to have you join us for our newest studio event in which we'll all spend time shooting and exploring what is involved in making an image from drafting the idea, to building the sets, to designing the lighting scheme, to solidifying the final proof of all the hard work with the release of the shutter!

We Hope To See You Join Us on January 19th at StudioDayton!
10am - 1pm
