An exciting photographic exploration of the human form in the spectacular Maine Landscape.

Picture this: you with your camera in the Maine light in June; Incredible models, time to immerse yourself in your creativity and the spirit of adventure. 

World renowned photographer and educator, Laurie Klein, will lead you through the art and techniques of photographing the female form in the natural landscape. Each day as we photograph in a variety of landscapes we will concentrate on pre-visualizing, posing, the relationship between vulnerable subjects in nature. Laurie will concentrate on helping you identifying and developing your authentic personal style. Students may use converted Infrared DSLR cameras or traditional DSLR cameras.

There will also be daily critiques, and one on one time with Laurie. Post production and workflow will be covered.
