Dreaming of Models

Over the years I have modeled for many, many workshops and photo events.

I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly.

That led me to decide to put on my own events but with with a twist. My philosophy is simple. I want everybody who attends one of my events, either as  paying photographer, or a model, to leave happy. My motto is to respect everybody and to do right. By treating people well I know I will offer a superior product that is driven by more than sales, I guess that’s why I have a 75% participant return rate.

My events are aimed at serious, already competent photographers looking to build their portfolios and have some fun at the same time as socialising with other people with similar interests.

I provide a very high attention to detail and planning so full professional production type assessments are taken out prior to the event.

The events are suited for photographers who wish to shoot fashion, fantasy and artistic nude style photography.

Shooting the Sirens in Crete

Twice per year, in May and October, I host the Sirens of Crete event in West Crete.

This event is really the creme de la Creme of photo events. It is fully inclusive so everything is taken care of from your arrival at Chania airport.  We have three or four models, two drivers/assistants (one of which will be a professional photographer), a makeup artist and a cook. Accommodation is in a lovely water front hotel. I source unique styling items and prepare mood boards and we work in eight different locations over the course of four days. It is open to only six photographers who work three in pairs (one shooter one assistant). The models styling and locations change every event.

There is currently one place open for the October 2018 event.

Sunset Beach Events in The Netherlands

A couple of times per year I host evening shoots on a beautiful sandy sunset beach in the Netherlands with four models open to eight photographers. These short shoots are highly social and always a lot of fun. Styling varies per event and we have a sit down meal together.

Ladies of the Castle events:

Also a couple of times per year, I book four models in an extravagant location, normally in Belgium, and dress them in  opulent attire  suited to the venue, you will be treated to fine cuisine and a glass of bubbly (prepared by myself). These are full day events and open to eight photographers, working in four pairs.

I normally join in as one of the models at my events, but not always.

I would like to stress, these events are not of an educational manor and I do not provide lighting set ups past available light tools (LEDS, reflectors).

Events tend to sell out quickly. To be added to my mailing list please email dreamingofmodels@gmail.com with your name, location and MAILING LIST in the title. Please put a link to your photography work in the email body.
