What's the Art Nude Workshop all about?

From Saturday 29 September to 2 October 2018 (incl) and in partnership with Ivory Flame*, one of the UK’s most sought after art nude models, Studio Lavalette is excited to offer a fantastic Art Nude Workshop in France.

The workshop is a wonderful opportunity to gain professionally-guided experience of shooting:

  • in the grounds of a local castle, (we have lots of them - seriously!), or a large French country house with formal gardens and/or the many wonderfully atmospheric disused buildings near here.
  • photographs beside a Charente vineyard;

Bouteville - Vineyard Photoshoot

  • inside the medieval Maison du Couvent, the oldest house in Villebois-Lavalette;
  • around the wonderful French countryside and woodlands, lakes and rivers;
  • within the secluded stone walled gardens and swimming pool of Studio Lavalette; and
  • in a state-of-the-art Studio with Bowen lights and infinity curve.

The whole workshop experience is designed to add some "je ne sais quoi..." to your photographs!

Including full-board, accommodation, tuition, model fee and transport to/from Bergerac or Limoges airports, the price is £599 per photographer, and £299 for your non-photographer partner/spouse.

Spaces are limited to the first four photographers that book – hurry, as with our other Workshops, this will sell out fast!
