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.
