Workshop Registration

How can I register for a workshop?

Just use the work­shop regis­tra­tion form, spe­cify­ing the name and date of the work­shop you want to attend.

One month pri­or to the work­shop date each del­eg­ate will receive an email describ­ing fur­ther work­shop inform­a­tion. This includes an itin­er­ary and dir­ec­tions to Clare­mont or the chosen ven­ue.

Levels of experience

We accept all levels of exper­i­ence to our work­shops. In fact we have all levels attend, begin­ning to very exper­i­enced. Our teach­ing envir­on­ment is per­fect for all stu­dents – espe­cially those tak­ing their first steps in the gen­re of the fine art nude The envir­on­ment is private and the work­shops are well struc­tured with small groups to work in. The only require­ment is that you know how to use your cam­era. (There is no indi­vidu­al cam­era instruc­tion avail­able dur­ing a work­shop).

How long do delegates photograph the models?

At a typ­ic­al work­shop we meet at 10.00am for an intro­duc­tion to the day ahead and then leave for our chosen loc­a­tion. We nor­mally start pho­to­graph­ing at 11:00 am through to 1pm, then break for a picnic/buffet lunch and then resume work at 2 pm and pho­to­graph until 4pm before head­ing back to Clare­mont or the ven­ue for a debrief. In total we pho­to­graph for 4 hours per day. These tim­ings are approx­im­ate but nev­er less than 4 hours.

How many students do you have on your Art Nude Workshops?

At Clare­mont we restrict the del­eg­ate num­bers to 4 with one mod­el. Oth­er work­shops range from 6 – 9 del­eg­ates with 2 or 3 mod­els.
