THE WORKSHOP EXPERIENCE:
Our glamour photography workshop is an excellent opportunity to shoot great photos of lovely young models in the kind of sexy poses that you'd see in some of the best magazines. Our workshop is open to serious photographers of all skill levels, including amateurs and full- and part-time professionals. Most of our attendees are advanced amateurs. Our workshop format is informal - you decide which models you wish to shoot and how much time you want to spend with each model.

In the past we've have guest instructors demonstrate their lighting and posing techniques. Our most recent mentor is Stephen Eastwood, beauty and fashion photographer, Canon Explorer of Light, and Model Mayhem moderator. We've also had award-winning Master Photographer Keith Mills, who has a portrait studio in Spring Lake, NJ - he has instructed at 40 of our workshops. Steve Sint from Popular Photography magazine has also been a guest instructor. We currently have Digital Willy, who specializes in high-key pinup lighting, at most of our workshops - he has been to over 200 of our workshops. Photographers can choose to work with the instructor, when available, or on their own.

LOCATIONS:
From August, 2003, through December, 2013, we had 189 workshops at our studio in Metuchen, NJ. We were forced to move out of our studio at the end of 2013 when the owners closed the building. Now, all of our workshops are held on location. I've been running the workshop since 1991 and have had over 390 workshops so far. In August, 2003, we ran an 8-day photo cruise that started in South Beach, Florida, then we flew to Panama and took a cruise through the San Blas Islands, Central America. Playboy/Penthouse photographer Paul Miller was with us as our guest instructor. Click here for some photos of that trip.

Southport, CT: In the summer of 2002 we started doing workshops in southern Connecticut and had 10 workshops at a private estate in Southport. The property is totally private and had many great indoor and outdoor shooting areas, making it usable year-round. Some of the shooting areas include a beautiful flower and vegetable garden, a patio, and an indoor pool and jacuzzi. The living room and dining room have good available light. Click here for photos of this location.

Westport, CT: This location is a beautiful 15-room private estate in Westport, CT, that we've used 3 times between June, 2004, and May, 2005. It has 2 acres of property with 10,000 sq ft of living area. It also has a great stone pool with waterfall, flower gardens, tennis court, Jacuzzi, glass shower, sauna, bedrooms, living room with spiral staircase, grand piano, fireplaces, workout room and more. It has an indoor, below ground racquetball court that we would often turn into a studio shooting area. It also has an outdoor deck on the second floor with barbecue grill that we use for cooking a barbecue at the workshop. Click here for photos of this location. We hope to use this location again in the future.

Playboy Party House: We've used this location in Westchester County, NY, 8 times between August, 2005, and May, 2007, which is just over the border from CT. This 20-room house, located on 6 acres of fully secluded woodland near Pound Ridge, NY, had a large indoor atrium pool and a large outdoor pool. It also had 2 saunas and a Jacuzzi, a weight room with boxing bag, a music room with guitars and piano, and a party room with a dancers stage and pole. Some of the other features included showers with water falls and multiple jets, an electric blue bathroom, master bedroom with Jacuzzi and scenic wall painting. Outside it had luscious gardens and walks, and a disco dance floor and huge bar. The house also had a long glass wall hall and a circular 2-story glass walled stairway. This house had been used for music videos and Playboy parties. Unfortunately, the owner has since died and the location is no longer available. Click here for photos.

We've also had workshops in Wilton, Weston, and East Norwalk, CT, and in Rye, NY. All of these locations are luxurious private homes.

Frog Hollow Studio: Another one of our favorite locations is Frog Hollow Studio, about 12 miles NW of Philadelphia. We've had 6 workshops at this location between August, 2004, and April, 2014. The location is a 5.5 acre private estate with a photo studio and outdoor shooting areas. The air-conditioned studio was designed by the owner and built by Amish and Mennonite workers in the style of a Pennsylvania barn. The studio has a 30x40' shooting area with a 30' cyc wall and 16' high ceiling. It also has an overhanging loft and spiral stairway. The owner's house was built in 1767 of native fieldstone. The property has no public road frontage and is surrounded by trees and has a 100' pond. Click here for photos of this location. We would like to have more workshops at this location in the future.

West Milford, NJ: In early 2003 we started using a bed and breakfast in West Milford, NJ, for our workshops. This was a beautiful 6 bedroom inn located in rural northern New Jersey on a 450 acre estate with a 55 acre lake. We had the entire inn to ourselves and could shoot in any of the rooms and outdoor locations. We were able to this location year-round and we even had a three-day workshop there. We had 11 workshops at this location between May, 2003, and November, 2006. Click here for photos taken at this location. Unfortunately, this location is no longer a bed and breakfast.

In the past few years we have also used a campground in PA and a model's home in North Plainfield, NJ. Some of the other locations in New Jersey that we've used in the past include a large commercial photo studio in Englewood that we've used 7 times, a studio in Clark that we used 5 times, and another studio in Garfield that we used once. We've also had workshops at private home in Stockholm, the Birch Hill Entertainment Center in Old Bridge, an empty warehouse in Cranford, and had three workshops at a farm in Whitehouse Station.

Another location in Pennsylvania that we've used is a photo studio near Reading that has both indoor and outdoor shooting areas. We were there twice. We've also used a bowling alley in the Poconos, a former turkey farm in Kunkletown and we had a couple of two-day workshops at my friend's 41-acre estate near Scranton.

In the beginning (1991) we held the workshops at a studio I had in Roselle Park, NJ. Our most popular location was a luxurious 4-acre private estate in Howell, NJ, where we've had 79 workshops from July, 1991, to December, 1999. We've also had 24 workshops on the beach at Sandy Hook, a National Park in NJ.

In the past few years we've had workshops at homes in Wall, Manalapan, and Sparta, NJ. Also, a beautiful home in Brooklyn, NY, a studio in Hightstown, a studio in Fairfield, and at the Art Factory in Paterson, NJ. We are always looking for additional locations to hold our workshop - if you know of any, please contact us. 


MODELS:
It's easy to get great shots when you're working with great models. Most of our models are freelancers, often college students or recent grads, generally ranging in age from 18 to about 29. Most of our models do nudes, mostly artistic or Playboy-style nudes, while others are a bit more erotic. We also use models who only do topless, lingerie or bikini. Models are hired based on their good looks and modeling skills, cooperative disposition and reliability. Most of our models have that “girl next door” look, while others are more exotic. If you are a model who is interested in modeling at our workshop, or if you know someone who might be interested click here for more info. (We are only looking for female models, age 18+, please.)

Probably our most high-profile model that we've had at the workshop was Joslyn Pennywell, a contestant on America's Next Top Model. She was at our February 22, 2009, workshop, and was on the recent cycle of the ANTP, which ended in November, 2008.

One of our favorite models in the past, Tracy Bancroft, was featured in the August 1997 issue of Playboy Magazine. She had a full page photo in a pictorial called “Biker Babes”. Her photo was shot by Richard Fegley on location at a biker bar in Chicago. Tracy did a four-day Playboy promotion at the big biker convention in South Dakota just before she did our September '97 workshop. Tracy has been one of the most popular models we have had and has done 13 of our workshops.

Another one of our models, Kelly Kole, was in Playboy's Sexy Celebrities and was in the August 2001 issue of Playboy as part of a 6 page layout called the "Girls of Bada Bing!" She was also in the November 2001 Celebrity Sleuth Magazine, and has appeared on the Sopranos, Saturday Night Live, Third Watch, and The View, and has appeared in 3 independent films. She also had a national Crown Royal ad in summer 2001. Kelly has done 3 of our workshops and went with us on our Panama Cruise. Another high-profile model who went with us to Panama is Playboy model and April, 1994, Penthouse Pet Andrea Mountjoy.

One of our favorite models ever to do the workshop was Playboy model and actress Laurie Wallace, "The Hottest Playboy Model On The Net". Laurie was in the July 2002 issue of Playboy and has been on the cover (12/01) and inside 7 issues of Playboy's Book of Lingerie, on the cover (6/01) and inside 3 issues of Playboy's Girlfriends, and has been featured on Playboy TV. She has also been featured in Fox, Cheri, High Society, Club, Leg Show, and other adult magazines. On her web site she lists 21 adult films that she has done. She has also been on many TV shows (including Howard Stern's show on "E!"), has been featured in many magazines (including Maxim), has done many TV commercials (including the Super Bowl commercial for HotJobs.com), and has done numerous print ads and catalogs.

One of our former workshop regulars, Seregon O'Dassey, was featured in the April, 2006, issue of Playboy as the Employee of the Month. Seregon is also a two-time Maxim Magazine Hometown Hottie.

Some other high-profile models that we've had include adult film star Anita Blue, and adult film star Charlie Laine, who is a regular on various Playboy TV shows.

We usually have about a 2:1 photographer to model ratio and we've had as many as 16 models at a workshop. We brought 13 models with us on our Panama trip.


MODEL RELEASES:
All our models sign a limited workshop model release which gives permission to use the photos for self-promotion, display, exhibition, and competition. It also allows photographers to use the photos on their own personal web site, but not on a pay site. The limited release does not allow commercial usage of the workshop photos. A set of model releases is now included in the cost of the workshop and is available for download. For a discussion of model releases and to view a copy of our workshop model release click here.
PRIVATE ONE-ON-ONE SESSIONS:
We usually schedule private one-on-one sessions before and after each workshop. Here's how the one-on-ones work: Models who wish to participate will be available either before or after the workshop for 30 minute private sessions. We usually have 6 sessions available after each workshop, plus one or two sessions before the workshop for select models. Photographers pay $50 - $75 for each 30 minute session and can sign up in advance, or at the workshop if the model is still available. Some models will sign a standard model release for the photos shot during the one-on-one session - but be sure to ask the model in advance and remember to bring your model releases. The models normally sign a limited model release for the open shooting part of the workshop. Click here for more info.
PHOTOGRAPHERS:
Most of our photographers come from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. However, at last count, some have come from as far away as Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas, Mississippi, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Boston, Buffalo, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and even Canada (3 from Toronto and 1 from Calgary). One photographer from South Carolina has been to 17, another from Maryland has been to 13, one from DC has been to 8, and one from Virginia has attended 5 workshops. A photographer from the Toronto area has attended 6 workshops.
CORPORATE SUPPORTERS:
A rep from Fujifilm has been to more than 20 of our workshops. He would always brings us free film, door prizes, and other goodies. He has also brought special Fuji cameras for us to try and has given us a demo of the Fuji digital camera and scanner, and Fuji medium-format, auto-focus cameras. Ilford Photo has also supported us by supplying film and paper at one of our workshops. We've also had Red River Paper as a sponsor.
