Gearing up for Tween “Rock of Ages” Photography workshop

Gearing up the props and photography lights for this weekend TRA; – Tween “Rock of Ages” Studio photo shoot Workshop at Skyline Studio. We are giving Tween’s from 8 years old to 14 years to Rock out the Studio in their Concept. We have some supThey will be please to see how great they are to work with. We are looking forward to shooting this Saturday morning. There are three more photography spots left to register at this shoot and get some amazing Rocker photos of these kids. For more information:

Photo above is of Model Emily Carey at the Bridal Glamour Beach Shoot we hosted a few weeks ago. That was the first of many we plan to repeat every January. It will be focused on Bridal and its Glamour it portrays. The weekend went well with eight photographers and eight models along with a makeup artist, we were shooting all weekend. We started with bridal lingerie on Friday night and did some dramatic low key lighting. Saturday morning we woke up before daylight for some amazing sunrise beach photos of Wedding dresses. The weather was slightly cool but sunny. The wind made it more challenging yet made some photos priceless. We kicked off the Saturday with couple “Save the Date” engagement style shooting. Then we through in a few wedding dresses and trashed them on the beach after lunch. We knew that Sunday was going to rain so we trashed the Wedding Dresses that same day. Saturday night was fun with three lighting setups in the Beach House. We got to be more creative. Sunday didn’t rain as bad as we though and we did another Trash the Dress on the Beach again with the dramatic rain clouds, it made for a perfect portfolio photo. After shooting til noon, we called it a wrap and ended the weekend with some amazing shots.

Model Maria from Glamour Makeup Portrait workshop brought in 25 models and 8 Makeup Artists that kept us in line for three hours of three session waves of models in head dress attire and wild makeup. We did this for the Makeup Artists to work their mad makeup skills and do some creative work on these models. It was a fun and relaxing shoot with everyone getting some great portfolio photos to add to their collection. We had the computer setup for Lighting Room training with tips on how to show your photos to clients and how to do small edits right there in the same software. Lightroom Software was a great way to show the photos of the models tips on posing and facial expressions.

We had an awesome Event to attend this past weekend with the Girl Scouts. The Event we photographed was one of their Service Unit Father Daughter Dance designed for their girls in 5th grade to K. With a Maskerade concept, we helped capture their smiling faces with just seconds from the printer. We print on the spot with our Event Printer and they get their photos after their picture is taken. They all went home with a memory that will be framed and last for years to come.

Our next big workshop is this month on the 19th and 20th. A two day workshop yet each with different models and different photographers. It’s our Sweet Tart Pinup2 workshop. This is one our most exciting workshop and very structured yet fast paced with models moving from one setting to another setting making it great for photographers to work with models in different setting and yet the with different attire. These models will model for five hours and come in two hours way before it begins. We have attire and they also bring their own. It’s amazing to see them change every thirty minutes into a different look and concept for pinup. They bring their A game and it shows in all their great photos. We have photographers registering daily. Once we meet 15 photographers we will close the workshop.

Next month; we will repeat our Blue Bonnet Trash the Dress in Brenham with the models getting in the local pond. We had a blast with the model posing in the dramatic trees and colorful blue bonnet fields. If you have never captured such beauty, then this is the one you want to come to. Blue Bonnets only come out once a year and they are best done with models ready to shoot. March is going to be Blue this year. lol

Join us April 8-10 for a weekend in Fredericksburg at the Ranch. You will have a time of your life shooting all weekend long.
