We also have a guest photographer/speaker coming down from New York this weekend, Mr. Joey Corsica!

---------------------

NYC based Portrait and Event photographer. Joey shoots nightlife and event photography up and down the east coast. He has shot for some of the most upscale nightclub venues in NYC and incredible dance events across the US. Joey works with several incredible brands promoting a functional professional photographic career including RL Handcrafts, Fundy Design, and Westcott to name a few.

Few people know he started out his career focusing on boudoir and fine art for private clientele. He believes capturing the lines and curves of the human body is more than just photographing skin, it is about highlighting their intention and their soul in the shapes captured. The dance between shadow and light plays a heavy influence on his boudoir work, and taking his clientele into that special place where they can open up and bare their everything is key.

-----

Below you will see a sampling of his work!

Important PSA:

Dear members,

It is important that you read this message. One of our models became sick following our last baby powder photo shoot. She contracted respiratory problems which led to pneumonia.

I am advising that you DO NOT engage in doing a similar shoot.

We will continue to do our workshops but will take better precautions in the future to ensure the safety of our models, members and participants.

I am already in contact with her and she asked that I shared this message.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and passing the word to other photographers.

- Virak Chhang,
Director of PhotoFest

Our Story

There is so much free information about photography on the internet but most of it is written in “photographer’s jargon” making it difficult for a novice to comprehend what would otherwise be considered common knowledge. Once we buy a DSLR we have NO idea where to begin with all that information! Our goal is to create an environment that is inviting, comfortable and designed with learning in mind. We supply models so you have a chance to work with human subjects while practicing what you learn. Any person that is new to photography knows the feeling of fumbling with their camera and adjusting settings while their subject is impatiently waiting - it’s not a good feeling! We take that pressure away and encourage questions! Sign up today!
