The Portrait and the Nude
with Jock Sturges
October 19 - October 24, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Join Jock Sturges in San Miguel de Allende for an exploration of the technical and psychological challenges of working with models in the process of creating exceptional portraits and figure studies. Paramount to the goals of the week is a close examination of the relationships between photographers and their models, with an emphasis on learning to accept (rather than “direct”) poses.

On the technical side, Jock introduces a rapid, intuitive use of the camera that liberates photographers from deliberate methodology and pushes them toward creative spontaneity. Mornings are spent on critiques and discussions of images created the day before, as well as lectures and demonstrations. Afternoons are devoted to group and solo assignments, working with male and female models on location in some of San Miguel’s enchanting private gardens, homes, and selected public spaces that embody the unique ambience of this colonial city.

Jock Struges rarely teaches workshops, so this week in colonial San Miguel is a unique opportunity to study with a contemporary master photographer.

$2,995 includes double accommodations for 6 nights (single supplement available for an additional $480), breakfast Monday through Saturday, lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Sunday & Friday, and applicable model/location/materials fees.   General Information for Workshops in San Miguel
