So happy to finally be able to give you my Boudoir Photography Workshop wrap-up from my time in Estes Park, CO!
So let me say this: it was awesome. I think what I loved most about being a part of the Photo Rehab 2018 Workshop was that it was immersive. There was no separation from the instructors and the attendees and we all spent all of our time together. Does that sound weird? It shouldn’t; being able to have total access to everyone at pretty much anytime was seriously cool. I had so much fun teaching and getting to know everyone there. Also–there were 8 of us there, all teaching something different. Talk about getting some bang for your buck!
I had the pleasure of teaching a live posing workshop, providing two muses for the attendees to photograph. Krystle Coll flew all the way out from Pittsburgh to help me out with that and Paige Joelson drove 2 hours for her part as well. I can’t thank either one of them enough for agreeing to lay around half naked and let 20 people photograph them. And a GIANT thank you to Evans Stowers for the incredible hairstyling and Sameera Ahmed for the killer makeup on both muses. Thank you both for bringing it all to life for me! I rounded it all out with a styled shoot of Krystle, and invited all of the attendees to come and photograph if they wanted to. Take a peek at the film. It’s a good recap of our time there (plus you’ll get to see our special guest, Sven the Elk, make his debut).
Special thanks to Chad Braithwaite, the organizer and grand poobah of the event. I’m not typically a kumbaya kinda gal, but this was absolutely wonderful.
Goodness me-oh-my….themmmmmmm LEGS! Now I really and truly understand when someone uses the term “legs up to her chin”.
So, just a bit of a catch-up as to what has been going on in my world. I know I’ve been seriously slacking on the blogging and I’m trying to catch my breath but I’ll be honest with you: if you really want current updates on my work you should follow me on my personal Facebook, photography Facebook and education Facebook, as well as my photography Instagram and education Instagram. See why I have no time to blog? Because I have FIVE social media accounts to deal with (insert fainting Elizabeth here).
Hopefully you know by now that myself, along with John and Lola, have opened a boudoir and editorial education business, Elizabeth Craig Education. YES YES YES!! I’m so excited and I know I’ve been bombarding everyone with a crapload of social media getting the word out there so I’m going to keep this snippet brief: launches on 10/29. If you want to register/buy the 10-wk course you have to do so by 10/28 11:59pm EST or you have to wait 3 months until we get through the first round. We’ve had lots of success so far and I AM SO THRILLED!!! Once you buy, you are grandmothered in and will have access to all additional content for life AND the price will be going up you guys. So if you’re interested, now is the time!
Yes, I am still photographing. You guys…seriously…like I could ever stop. But people keep asking me if I’m hanging up the camera for a chalkboard and my answer is, of course, NOPERS! Never ever ever. Right now I am booking for 2019 so keep that in mind for Valentine’s Day!
I pinkie swear I’m going to try and blog more often. In the meantime, come catch me on social media!Muse: Mia Gilroy
