Windsor Model / Photographers Workshop #6
First off thanks to Joey Accot for creating the Windsor Photography/Model Workshop group and hosting these Workshops. The group started out small but seems to be growing each month on both the photographer and model side. If you haven't been and would like to model or take the pictures, I definitely recommend coming out to the next event. These workshops allow you to grow your portfolio as well as network with other models and photographers in the surrounding area.
Don't be shy, we don't bite. Cost is $10 which goes to renting the location, so dont drink your Timmies or buy that extra pack of smokes and come capture some amazing shots. Personally I was very nervous the first time so I invited a friend out and we had a blast.
Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.Ansel Adams
What to Expect
Upon arriving you should fill out a Model/Photographer release form (needs to be filled out by parent if model is less than age of majority). Once everyone has introduced themselves Joey will break everyone into smaller groups and give out starting locations. From there you basically rotate through the different areas of the venue. Some models will float with you, others will prefer to stay at the certain locations. Nothing is set in stone so feel free to wander, mingle and network with the models ands photographers. The group consists of a large mix of models and photographers with different skill sets, so if you need help or you're just not quite getting the shots you want ask someone for advice, after all that's the point of these workshops.
So what are you waiting for? Go join the Facebook group and come meet us. Next workshop is Feb 28th at The Waters Edge on Riverside Drive.
The Olde Walkerville Theatre
The Olde Walkerville Theatre was designed by Architect C. Howard Crane, who also designed Detroit’s Fox Theatre. The theatre officially opened its doors in September the 20th of 1920. Since its inception, it has been many things, but it has continued to be a landmark building in the Olde Walkerville neighbourhood. We're thrilled to be returning the theatre back to its glory. This will be a work in progress and we look forward to the community support throughout the process. The venue is a one-of a kind in the area, in that it is capable of being a theatre or an entertainment venue - it can also cater for numerous needs with catering options coming from Lorelei's Bistro as well as other restaurants in the area.
Olde Walkerville Theatre was full of character, from the darker concrete fondation walls in the basement to the grand stage and open balcony. Every inch was screaming for a model and photogrpaher to create amazing images. Thanks again to all the models. I know my pictures turned out great and I hope you love them as much as I do.
