Want to know how I shoot my boudoir and pinup sessions?
Starting a Boudoir and/or Pinup business or just want to take yours to the next level?
Boudoir Louisville offers boudoir and pinup photography workshops!
We run our workshops a little differently than most. Instead of attending a workshop with a room full of other photographers, we limit our workshops to just one person at a time. That's right, when you sign up for our workshop, you will receive one-on-one attention for the entire workshop! 

We will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know.
We will not hold anything back. 

We can schedule a workshop anytime, whatever fits your needs best.

About ME

During this workshop, you will go on location with the Boudoir Louisville team for an actual pinup girl photo shoot. For this type of shoot, you will learn how to scout and set up a true pinup location. This type of photo shoot normally includes a great vintage vehicle or two. If you'd rather learn how to shoot classic, Elvgrin style pinup IN STUDIO, we can certainly do that instead. Either way, we will show you everything from vintage hair and makeup to lighting, posing and everything in between. 
 We always end up talking about best business practices as well as marketing as well.

You will be in studio for one of our "Bombshell" photo shoots from start to finish.  When the model arrives, our hair and makeup artist will go to work. During this time, our team will style the shoot. When the model is ready, we start shooting. When I say "WE", I mean you and I. Bring your camera! The entire photo shoot will be a questions & answers / hands-on kinda thing. Because this is a one-on-one workshop, we can spend as little or as much time on any given topic. Together, we will shoot several boudoir outfits and scenes with a variety of lighting and techniques. We always end up talking about best business practices as well as marketing as well.

That's right kids! For this workshop YOU will be the student as well as the model. Bring your fancy underwear and experience what it's like to do a boudoir photo shoot, from in front of the camera! During your boudoir photo shoot, I will explain each and every thing that I'm doing along the way. You will gain knowledge in posing and lighting while having your very own Boudoir Louisville photo shoot! Shooting boudoir is just as much about the metal comfort of your client as it is the physical. Having first hand experience posing in your underwear will give you a better understanding of what is going through your client's head.
