Nothing is more frustrating than paying money to attend a workshop only to discover that the instructor is more interested in developing his own portfolio than he/she is in helping you develop yours. At ViewFinder Center for Photography, we measure our success in our ability to help you grow and develop as a photographer.

It starts with a portfolio review at the beginning of the week, followed by tutorials on key topics (posing and working with models, choosing locations, studio/natural/available lighting techniques, post-processing, and editing/preparing a portfolio).

During the week, all students will focus on shooting with models, while the instructor works with them to help them improve their confidence in their creative, technical and editorial approach.

At the end of the week, each student will have a portfolio of fresh and new images he can be proud to take home.

The Original Nude, with IMSirReal,
Founder and director of ViewFinder Center for Photography

The shapes and curves of the human figure provide a unique and endless landscape for the photographer’s lens to explore. Has it all been done before ? Acclaimed fine art nude photographer ImSirReal, aka Bryon Paul McCartney, believes everyone has the possibility to create nudes that are original and uniquely their own.

Creating an original photographic style starts with developing confidence in one’s own ability to make critical decisions, and this comes through learning and experience.
ImSirReal will focus on the many facets of taking a comprehensive approach to professional fine art photography.
