Arlund Photo Retreat Image Review

Hey!!  I'm back from Chuck Arlund's workshop....better known as the Arlund Photo Retreat.  I'll give you an overview of everything later, but for now I want to throw up some images I shot.  There is sooooo much to share that I will have to put it all into different posts over a period of time.

But I know that some of you are dying to see, so here is a sneak peek of some images...

 Chuck hired several models from agencies, and he flew in one model from Nashville.  I typically have no need for guy models in my portfolio, but there was a male model at the workshop who just absolutely was uber professional.  He couldn't take a bad picture and he pulled off any look that anyone requested.  At one point he even had on heavy make-up and he was so pretty he could have been a female.  I didn't take any of him n make-up, and honestly I didn't take many pictures of him at all because I just really don't have a great need for guys in my portfolio.

But wow was he a hottie!!   When we were first introduced, I was concerned because he had a pickle jar full of clear liquid.  I asked to see his ID and I smelled the pickle jar because I suspected it was moonshine.

It was water.

His "water bottle".  And so, he turned out to be a pretty good guy...he even wrote thank you cards to all the people who did lots of work behind the scenes to make our meals and clean up after us.

He's got a good future in modeling ahead of him, and there is a picture of him and his pickle jar somewhere on this post if you want to see it.  Enough about him though!!  (Can you tell I was super impressed!!). 

So, we played with lots of different lighting situations and gear. Wish I had more time to go into detail now  but you'll just have to wait.  There was an infinity pool that just was amazing.  The location where we were at is a huge blog post all by itself.  Enjoy looking at these, and I will share more information about the workshop...I mean, Retreat...later when I have more time.  xoxo, Sharon

Augusta Boudoir is Growing!!

Hi Everyone! I cannot believe Summer is almost over. It went by so fast. Goodness, so many things are taking place...I don't have any time to go into much detail so I'll just give you some highlights.

In less than 12 hours I am getting on a plane headed to Kansas City so that Augusta will be a little bit sexier!!

I truly believe that growing and learning in this business is sooooo essential.  I always search for new information that I can find online or from local photography classes, but hands-on  learning from talented, successful and world-respected photographers is most valuable.  Last  year I spent many months devoted to learning and growing...a mentor ship with the lovely and super awesome Kim Mallory, I completed a workshop with Christa Meola (although I wish it could have been her Paris workshop!!), and I traveled to Washington D.C. to get some hands-on shooting time with  Robin Owen...those are all well-known and successful boudoir photographers, and they have all made their mark on the boudoir world in their own BIG special way.

This year I am so excited to let you know I am investing in an Arlund workshop!!

Chuck Arlund has workshops in NYC, Nashville and Lake of the Ozarks, which is the one I'm headed to. It's kind of awesome because only 10 photographers get attend this unique workshop, and someone from as far away as the Bahamas is coming to it. Chuck Arlund is just phenomenal...his style is so unique and it is a real investment for Augusta Boudoir and Scribbletime to have the opportunity to learn from him.

Okay before I leave, I want to let you know that my business is GROWING, and I have added an administrative assistant to handle all my scheduling. Her name is Kristy and her email is: kristy@scribbletime.com   Please give her a warm welcome!!!!

 She is the person who will actually make all the arrangements for your session. I am so happy to have her help, and she will be covering for me since I won't have internet access next week. Please contact her if you'd like to schedule a session and she will get the ball rolling for you!

I am transitioning to a new website for Augusta Boudoir, so hang on until we get it all done. I am not sure how long it will be until you see a different look, so keep checking back! If you know me, you know I like to shoot on-location to get a variety of different looks.

Shooting in the studio gets pretty boring to me, but it occurred to me that I really shy away from posting studio shots. So here are some for your viewing pleasure! I shot this session a while back in the studio. Enjoy!

 xoxo, Sharon
