Photo Workshop, May 19: El Mirage Fine Art ~ $125

We are returning to El Mirage for another fun filled day of abstract fine art and fashion photography!  This workshop was extremely popular last year and we expect it to fill up very quickly.  We will meet at 7am on the outskirts of Victorville and caravan into the dry lake.  There will be models for fashion portraits, and several props for some abstract photos.  We will spend a couple hours discussing the techniques to use in what can be a harsh lighting environment and taking tons of photos.

From the dry lake we'll travel a few miles to an old abandoned house where we can shoot a structure slowly being reclaimed by the desert.  finally we will move right down the street to the free standing chimney and graffiti-covered swimming pool.  We will discuss the best way to utilize a non-traditional setting to work with people and spend some time photographing the area.

Those who want, can join us for lunch before heading back toward home.  This is always a fun workshop and one of my favorite places to photograph.  If you are interested in attending, justsend an email to and we will send you a payment invoice through paypal.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but the paypal button is not currently working on this blog. Here are a few photos from various trips to El Mirage.
