What do you get for your money?
An excellent value - A full afternoon and sunset (6 hours) of photo opportunities with amazingly talented models. The ratio of photographers to models = 3 photographers for every 1 model. This ensures that you will have plenty of time to shoot with each one. Red Bench Studios is providing a private area at the Old Jerome High School Art Center for Implied and Artistic Nude sessions. The Gold King Mine Ghost Town is a unique place, with acres of old rustic buildings and vintage rusted cars, including the landscape and scenery of Jerome. There are many different scenarios to create diverse and artistically captivating photographs. You will come away with a memorable experience and prize-winning images.
Sign-up is easy. Click HERE and follow the prompts.
You will be contacted via email two days before the event, with current weather conditions and other important information, such as where to park, what to bring, and driving directions.

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.

It only seems fitting to use the classroom as it was intended - as a classroom. Red Bench™ Studios will be hosting weekly art classes, beginning on January 3rd, 2019, taught by James Menzel-Joseph. Classes range from beginner to advanced, pencil sketching to oil, acrylic and watercolor painting. Our selection of skilled models offer a diversity of genres, including nudes, draped and posed with props.
Our studio is full of natural light, making it the perfect location for photography shoots. If you are just starting out and want to learn how to use your camera, or if you are a professional photographer with years of experience, or anywhere in between, we offer something for everyone.
At Red Bench, we have built a reputation over the past couple of years, hosting unique monthly workshops with international award-winning photographer/instructor, John T. Keehn. Our professional models are experienced, and offer a great deal of posing choices. The ratio of photographers:models is small, making the sessions personalized. We will be using the classroom as a photo-shoot setup, as well as other areas around the historic building and the old mining town of Jerome, AZ. You will come away with prize-winning photos.
Lighting, Beginner Camera and Advanced Photo classes are available, taught by skilled photographers, such as Karl F. Mullings, who has experience photographing celebrities.
Is modeling your goal? We will be hosting Modeling Basics classes too, taught by one of the most sought-after models in Phoenix, Violet Pixie. Learn the basics - makeup techniques, what to wear for your body type, beginner poses and how to prepare in advance for a modeling gig.
Classes and workshops are set up as Events on Facebook, where detailed information will be available, including how to sign up, what the fees are and what they include, and do not include.

OUR MONTHLY ART SHOWS have expanded to include not only photography, but collage art, mural paintings, canvas art, ceramics and natural materials, paired with live music. Our mission continues to explore undiscovered, out-of-the-box artwork by new artists, giving them an outlet to display their one-of-a-kind flavor of art. Stop by and meet our September artist, Henry, coming all the way from Seattle, WA. Henry will be painting a mural, live at his art show on Saturday, September 22nd, from 4 - 8:00 p.m., with live music by local alternative folk singer/songwriter, Rosemary Tracy.
