Let me tell you what we're all about.
We are so much more than a photo studio. At Red Bench, we take great pride in encouraging and supporting the photographic arts in Northern Arizona. We work hard to create and organize events, workshops and classes for photographers of all skill levels, whether you are the seasoned professional, or you just bought your first camera today - we offer something for everyone. This has been a long time coming, and now is the time to sign up. We are thrilled to be offering Camera Club Membership privileges exclusively to you!
What sets us apart from the rest?
We offer lots of perks, including discounts on everything. That also includes use of our photo studios in Jerome and Flagstaff, and access to all the studios' props, lighting equipment and backdrops. You get first priority notifications and access to signups weeks before they are made public. We have something new going on every month with artistic, unique and interesting workshops by International Award-Winning photographer, John Keehn. We are now in the process of putting together workshops in how to shoot Boudoir, Bodyscapes, Seasonal, Figure Study - male and female, Architecture, and much more. Our wide variety of models are experienced and professional, offering you top quality sessions. Our class instructors are skilled and talented, giving you an excellent value in Beginner Camera, Lighting, Head-Shots, Editing programs, how to photograph a maternity shoot and special occasion sessions. Our events are collaborative, where everyone participates and no one is left out. First Saturdays of every month, Red Bench Studio will host an opening reception, showcasing photographs taken by our members at our events from the prior month. Gallery shows include local live music and potluck food and beverages. They are open to our family and friends, and to the public.
Customize your membership.
You can customize your membership by selecting whatever interests you. If you are new to photography, you can sign up for any class(es) that you want. If you are looking to expand your photography portfolio, sign up for all of our monthly workshops. If you like big events with a variety of models and themes to choose from, sign up for our twice-a-year Gold King Mine Ghost Town Shoots. If you are the type of photographer that likes a little bit of everything, join a workshop, take a class and participate in an event. Our calendar is filling up - we are always creating new innovative things to choose from.
We are not your grandpa's camera club.
We like attracting all types of photographers, because we all get inspired when we share our passion for photography as an art-form. Inspiration comes from everywhere, whether it be out in nature, on a busy city sidewalk or in an old classroom in a historic building on the side of a mountain. Our camera club is exciting and new, thinks outside the box and gets imaginative with concepts and themes. There is no critiquing or judging one another's artistic expression. We encourage and promote producing images that are innovative, experimental and original.

Wrapped in Plastic is not just a model covered in Saran-Wrap. It is an emerging from the shell, the struggle to escape, a rebirth. Our muse, Violet Pixie, will slowly push and claw her way out of the membrane, pull and rip from the cocoon, as she breaks free into the world. It is a visual, active piece of art taking place, while the photographers photograph the event live.
Along with the escape from the plastic casing, Violet will be modeling nude and semi-nude. Her expertise has given her a reputation of being a high-in-demand-model, not only in the Phoenix area, but nationwide. We are excited to offer Violet's diverse skills during this unique, live-art workshop.
All of those who sign up will have access to a variety of different angles in our studio, from high up on a ladder, to lying down on the floor, standing and/or sitting. The North-facing natural light that pours through the huge wall of windows is optimal for photography.
This is an excellent value: 3 full hours of photo opportunities with sought-after model, Violet Pixie, at Red Bench Photo Studio in the historic mining town of Jerome, AZ, for only $125 (Camera Club Members: $75.)
Whether you are a seasoned professional or a novice, our workshops are the place for you, even if you have no experience photographing people. We work as a group, respecting our individualized creativity. You are guaranteed prize-winning photos. Plus, we have a lot of fun during the time we spend together.
Space is limited, as we do not over-crowd our workshops, keeping the ratio of photographers to models at a minimum. We highly suggest you sign up today to reserve your spot for this workshop on February 23rd, as it will fill up quickly. Click HERE to guarantee your spot.
Every month we offer a different themed workshop, with professional models who specialize in the concept of the month. We promise a memorable experience and unforgettable images.
