No Nudity except for implied-nudity. That is, we will only shoot when the model is ready. Do NOT touch the model. BEFORE THE WORKSHOP: KNOW how to use the Manual Settings on your Camera. Especially how to set manual shutter speeds and f-stop sizes. But also, how to adjust your custom white balance.

So, considering the value of the workshop, and the amount of time she'll be working for you, I'm suggesting that photographers tip her between $30-60 (some have tipped $100) in consideration of a model release from each model. Please take into consideration how hard they'll work and the quality images that they'll help create for you. The Return-on-Investment is virtually priceless. This is strictly voluntary, but customary. The model release is basically a standard model release customized to reflect the nature of the workshop. I'm sure you wouldn't want to see your picture, taken at a workshop, appearing in a national Coca-Cola campaign without the compensation that would normally be expected. And, the same goes for the model. So, the Model Release is worded that the photographer can use the photograph for their portfolio, INCLUDING the use of those images for self-promotion through websites, pamphlets, advertising, etc. That seems more than fair, all things considered. Also, the models appreciate any finished images you can provide them. I'll have their email, facebook pages, etc available for you to send them prints/files. Yes, I know alot of us will have similar images, but I know there are some great creative edits that some of you will do. Need Help? Testimonials/Reviews: Jesus Garcia on June 12/10 (from his blog)"This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a photo workshop in San Antonio. This being my first workshop, I had no idea what to expect. I felt both nervous and excited. Luckily, my nerves subsided in the first hour… A big thanks goes out to Sean Stevens for sharing his knowledge of photography and putting together this workshop. Assisting Sean was Scott Remmers and Alan Brzozowski who not only helped Sean but also shared their knowledge of photography, as well. Thank you’s also go out to Tricia, Amanda, and Briana for working the cameras all day; Andria for doing the girls makeup and hair; and Wes for opening the doors to his beautiful home and being such a gracious host. I truly had a great time, met some wonderful people, and came home even more excited about photography. This was a great learning experience and I would definitely recommend this workshop to other photographers."Adan Garza III June 15"1st Workshop I took with Sean Stevens was such an eye opener I had a hard time (not) saying no to this next workshop. I highly encourage anyone out there with a camera to sign up with Sean for the next work shop."
Jason FitzPatrick June 15"Thank you for putting so much effort into the workshop. It was so much more than I expected. I kind of figured it would of been a bunch of wierdos sitting around blabbering on and on about nonsensical camera settings and why they think one brand is far more superior to another. I couldn't of been more wrong. I was blown away by how courteous and professional the models, staff, and attendees were. It was amazing how easy it was to work with all of the models, and how the staff and more knowledgeable attendees were willing to help in any way and share experiences/advice. I just wanted to thank all of you again for all that you did."
Refund Policy:Sometimes things just come up. And we understand. We've never had to cancel a workshop, but if we did we'll either credit you for another workshop, or issue a full refund.Keep in mind that there are upfront costs associated with running a workshop like this. We have to pay and feed the models, the Makeup Artist, location fees, advertising, etc. With that in mind, and because of the short lead times on our workshops, any deposits are non-refundable if you need to cancel for any reason. We wish you never will have to, but if you've paid in full, and can't attend the workshop due to extenuating circumstances, we will issue a full refund less the deposit fee. No refunds will be issued for cancellations within one week of the date of the workshop.
