Have you been following our Gold King Mine Ghost Town Shoot on social media?
This promises to be a day full of fun, and diverse photography opportunities for those who attend. We are thrilled to host this huge event, the first of its kind at the Ghost Town in historic Jerome, AZ. For those of you who have attended our workshops over the past two years, you know the quality of our events, the professionalism of our models and how thorough we manage the time and details of everything we offer. Our lineup of top-notch models is impressive, all 10 from Arizona. Five are coming up from Phoenix, the rest are in the Northern Arizona area. The 7-hour event is filled with lots of different themes and concepts, in the unique backdrop of the Ghost Town. Old buildings, rusted out vintage cars, gas pumps, farm equipment - you name it, it's there.
Why haven't you signed up yet?
1. The weather will be perfect.
2. There are plenty of volunteers to help everyone stay on track.
3. There are places to park.
4. There is a private studio for nude shoots.
5. There are overnight accommodations.

This is an excellent value!
Here's the breakdown: if you privately hired each of these 10, highly-skilled professional models for 30 minutes each, all in one day for a total of 5 hours of shooting (without any breaks), you would easily spend a minimum of $750.

Who is this muse? She is not ordinary, and certainly not typical. With a flowing mane of multi-colored braided dreadlocks, and a body of colorful tattoos, Jessi is extraordinary.
A dancer, a yogi, a flexible, versatile, fascinating young lady - the theme of the day is "interesting, movement, angles, dramatic, with a splash of figure study and color."
Join us and see what Jessi is all about. She is diverse and everything else, but the girl next door.

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.
