Fellow photographers,

The theme for this new newsletter is doubles.

We have two models at tomorrow’s Glamour Night, We have two events next weekend: Technicolor Grey on the Friday Night and a studio day on the Saturday with two models.

Add to all that two training courses starting soon and you will see we really have something for everyone going on at the studio.

Read on for more details on all these topics……

Glamour Night

Friday, 12 August 2011 , 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Location: Ian’s Studio

I can confirm that this  will be relocated to the studio. Instead I will set up a couple of ‘glamour room sets’ at the studio for the night.  These will be the bedroom set (previously used for the boudoir night), a workshop set (workbench, tools, hardhats etc) and we might also set up a shower set too.

We will have two models working to topless levels at this event.  The lead model for the event will be “Saz” (See her purestorm profile:  http://www.purestorm.com/profile.aspx?id=xxsazxx – note the profile contains nudity)

In addition to Saz, we will have a second model attending the shoot. This will be Zara Choudhry (aka Inception) Purestorm profile: http://www.purestorm.com/p​rofile.aspx?id=zara91 (again profile contains nudity) – Zara is also a photographer. Zara will only be modelling for half of the shoot, the rest of the shoot she will be one of the photographers!

Price: £26 

Technicolor Grey

Friday, 19 August 2011 , 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Location: Ian’s Studio

At this weeks Friday Night event we will only be shooting with a grey background…. BUT we will look at lots of different ways to make that grey background into almost any colour we want by the use of filters/gels. Working with a model we will create a number of different lighting effects… all based round this one background.

Our model for this event will be Sophie Winters. You can see here profile on Purestorm: http://www.purestorm.com/Miss_Winters

Price: £22

Studio Day – Burlesque and Gothic

Saturday, 20 August 2011 , 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Location: Ian’s Studio

I am pleased to announce details of the two models for this studio today. A relaxed day long shoot, a chance to tryout techniques and ideas. I’ve got a burlesque model booked for the morning of this day, and a gothic/alternative model booked for the afternoon.

The burlesque model is Cerise Derriere
(Note Cerise’s profile contains nudity)

The Gothic model is Ash (aka Incumbo)

I’ve also extended the time to 4.30pm. So this will be great value for money.
