Boudoir photography workshop at GCPhoto - June 30 2018
At GCPhoto, we do a lot of studio workshops because we love to give photographers a chance to shoot in a photography studio or to join us on a photoshoot. On Saturday June 30, there'll be a boudoir photography workshop, which is always a popular one and produces some absolutely beautiful images. For this boudoir photoshoot, we'll be shooting with a focus on shadows and backlighting to produce some elegant photographs with a hint of mystery. We'll be using a new model to the studio workshops for this photoshoot, so you'll get some great new photographs even if you've been to the workshops before.
There are more details about this boudoir studio photography workshop at the Studio Photography Workshop Plus Page but here are basic details...
Date: Sat June 30, 10am - 3pm
Place: GCPhoto studio, Tugun, QLD 4224

People sometimes have questions about the workshops or wonder whether they're experienced enough photographers to shoot in a studio, so here's a list of FAQ for the studio workshops in general and the boudoir photography workshop in particular.
Do I need to be an expert photographer for the studio workshops? No. Studio photography is actually fairly simple because you control all the lighting and the positioning etc. We go through all the camera settings you need before we start shooting, so there won't be any problem. Ideally you should be comfortable with the manual controls and the menu of your camera, but that's about all you need!
Do I need a really expensive camera for the studio workshops? Not at all! These workshops are aimed at those with a digital camera rather than film and ideally a dSLR camera, although with the latest all-in-one compact cameras, many of them are suitable for the workshops too. You don't need the latest camera or a hugely expensive lens. Photographs are rarely about the camera and are mostly to do with the lighting and the photographer!
Will we spend time shooting or is it a lecture? Shooting! This is a very hands-on workshop. You'll get taught the basics of the settings and the lighting, and then we'll start shooting! There'll be advice and guidance available throughout, both for the whole group and individuals if they have a question.
How many people are the workshop? The studio photography workshops are deliberately kept quite small with only 4 or 5 people plus your instructor(s). This is partly because the studio isn't huge, but also because you'll all be shooting together so any more than that gets a bit chaotic.
Where do the studio workshops take place? The photography workshops are in the GCPhoto studio, which is in Tugun (near the M1 and the Gold Coast highway - very easy to get to). The studio is a small but very well equipped and comfortable studio environment and is great fun to shoot in.
Is the boudoir photography workshop suitable for women? How about children? There is a minimum age of 18 years for this workshop. However, this is a high-end studio photoshoot - and not explicit - and so is great for female photographers. In fact, experience says that female photographers are often great at boudoir photography!
Who will be modelling for us? The GCPhoto studio photography workshops use a number of models and who is modelling will depend on the style of the photoshoot. The models are usually professional models or have some experience of modelling for photographers. The actual model for the boudoir photoshoot will be announced a little closer to the time.
What is a boudoir photography shoot? Boudoir photography means that a model, almost always a female, poses in lingerie or semi-clothed in an elegant style that doesn't reveal too much and is sexy but not pornographic.
Will there be nudity? Not for this shoot. At the studio workshops, we do sometimes do artistic nude photoshoots, but for this one, there'll be no full nudity and explicit photography is not allowed.
What modelling poses and lighting set-ups will we use? We'll do three or four set pieces so there'll be a range of style and poses. Although there will be a rough set-list of photographs, the exact poses and set-ups will depend on what you the photographers want to shoot.
