The intimate photograph is collaboration between model and photographer. A relationship built on trust and acceptance allowing one another to create a more connected image.
“It's not about the flesh. It is about the embodiment of it.
Jody Frost and Christian Peacock want to guide you through the experience on how to create an intimate photograph by going beyond the expectant image of body and skin, to achieve a more honest photograph of the emotional intent. They will demonstrate how to create situations and environment where people feel safe to relate, connect and exchange.
This intimate two day workshop will allow the attendees ample time with their models to go beyond their creative safe places and attempt to shoot in a more emotive manner.
Friday night will be a meet and greet with everyone involved over a nice welcome dinner at the location. Share images and idea.
Saturday will be an all day workshop taking photographs with two different models rotating among the talent and scenarios at the quaint Bodega Bay cottage.
Sunday morning will be a critique of the shoot.

Jody brings her years as a model and a photographer to this workshop. Working both sides of the lens gives her unique advantages. As a model, she is sensitive to the concerns other models might have and can help put them at ease or strike poses quickly and efficiently for a model to duplicate should she feel uncertain. She also establishes a connection with her subjects, and equality so that they feel invited in as essential collaborators in the creative of process. As a photographer, she uses her knowledge and intuition to guide a photo shoot along, understanding light and the environment and how to use it to the best advantages.
As instructor, she can help you discover ways to use locations and props with your model to tell your story and bring to life the images you desire to create.
