New Workshop date on May 20-22, 2016!
For the past 15 years, Gina & Kim Weston have been teaching Fine Art Nude Photography Workshops at their home on Wildcat Hill, the former home of Edward Weston. Wildcat Hill is famous for the light that emanates through the windows and the skylight.
Just imagine when you attend our workshop, that you get to photograph under this same amazing light, at this historic location! With more than 3 private locations to shoot in, we can easily accommodate up to 9 workshop participants. While most of the locations are indoors we also have several beautiful outside areas to photograph in too!
Kim Weston will be your private instructor during this workshop and will work with each photographer in the group. Some of the topics that will be covered are:
- How to work with models
- Critique of photographs (done on the second day of workshop)
- Critiquing your work is one of the most powerful learning tools that we know of, it enables you to see your work, get feedback on it and then improve on it if needed.
- Preconceived ideas
- Sharing your work
- Working within a group
We work with very experienced models during our Wildcat Studio Nude Photography Workshops. They are skilled in collaborating with novice to experienced photographers.

Gina and Kim Weston
"Thank you Gina! I had a great time at the workshop and really enjoyed soaking in some Weston family history. Thank you for opening your home to us. Dinner on Saturday night was much appreciated and delicious. The models and locations were wonderful and I think I created some strong images. I'll share some with you once I get a chance to edit them. Kim also gave me some good ideas about composition and cropping that will help to enhance my photography. Overall it was one of the best workshops I have attended".
Please keep in touch,
