To the Carriage House Studio community, past, and future! THANK YOU!

Since beginning the original Carriage House Studio in Washington D.C. in November 2008, I have tried to make the workshops and the studio a place where photographers and models could be creative. One of my favorite models put it best when she said the objective of our studio and workshops is “To create and express, not accumulate and repress!”

After 10 years, and over 600 workshops, there are hundreds of photographers, models and other creatives who follow the Carriage House Photography Workshops.

Now, in the next stage of my journey, as a creative and teacher, as of July 1st, 2018, I have launched a Patreon for the Carriage House Photography Workshops!

The purpose of our Patreon is to establish a “virtual” community that builds on the experience that many photographers and models had at the original Carriage House. The Carriage House Studio community helped hundreds of photographers begin or improve their mastery of studio photography, and developed a number of very successful art nude models.

There are two important reasons to establish the new "virtual community" including:

Social Media Censorship:  I feel the walls of censorship on Facebook, Instagram, Meetup and You Tube closing in, and limiting the free and creative artistic expression which we strive for in our art nude workshops…  Fortunately, as one door closes, another door opens, and at least in its vision statement, Patreon seems to have accepted the challenge of providing a safe haven for artistic expression 🙂

A Global Network: The “virtual” Carriage House will benefit from the road travelled over the past decade, as well as the advances in technology that make it possible to draw on resources locally, nationally and internationally. In particular, using Skype, Google and multiple webcams, it’s now possible to build a network of photographers, models and locations in the US (New York, Miami, Portland/Seattle), Europe (Spain, Portugal, France and Czechia) and Latin America (Panama, Cuba), and offer an exciting new phase to the development of the Carriage House Photography Workshops!

We will offer the following memberships levels:

$1 Month - Sustaining Member:   Intended for those photographers and models who want the uncensored, back story version of the notifications about our workshops. No taped over nipples or private parts, and with updates going to your email as a Patreon subscriber, instead of going to your spam filter as is the case with mailing list emails. You will also receive notice and a link to our new "Reflections" webzine, featuring text and images from our Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall workshops. 

$10 month - Creative Member:  Intended for the photographer who is looking for inspiration for their fine art nude photography. I will be uploading a monthly result of a shoot which includes a discussion of the creative concept, the technical issues, additional resources and of course images of the session. These monthly sessions will consist of a combination of text, images and video, and will be exclusively available to Patreon members.  We also welcome requests and recommendations for topics of new and original concepts to make a reality!

$25 Per Hour Fee - Photo Critique and Skill Development Session:  Intended for the photographer who wants to go to the next level. Using Google Hangout or Skype, we will set a suitable time for a 1 hour screen share session, where I will review your portfolio and discuss any creative or technical questions you have.

Goals - We will also have specific projects or events we will seek funding for, including:

  • Model Travel Expenses - To bring top quality models to our different locations in the USA and Europe, and add variety and depth to your portfolio.
  • Equipment for Studios  (Madrid,  Portland) - To help jump start studio in new locations!
Of course there are many other kinds of creative services we are considering, and the attraction of building a community is to hear what our member/subscribers are interested in, so let me know your thoughts!

Please consider visiting our Patreon and supporting this next phase :)

Thank you!!!
