NYC BOUDOIR Workshop and SHOOT OUT Hosted By Critsey Rowe


On Sunday, June 24th, 2012

The Shoot Out will take place at a really amazing studio location in Chelsea that includes several gorgeous settings. We will supply 3-4 models with professional hair and makeup. The studio has high ceilings with northern light and high windows. In addition to shooting natural light, we will also do off-camera lighting setups to help give you a big variety for your portfolio.

In the evening of June 23rd and June 24th, we will be hanging out with any attendees that want to meet up and talk about the business of boudoir. (this is only open for attendees signed up for the shootout)

The Shoot-Out is for:

Semi to Pro photographers wanting to enhance their boudoir portfolio or even get started in the art of boudoir.
Established boudoir photographers that want to come and play and meet other talented boudoir shooters.

We will be helping with posing and lighting techniques but you are welcome to be creative and do your own thing. Our main objective is to give you space, the models, and the time to shoot to create stunning images you can use on your website and blog.

  1. Omg! Omg! I want to do this. If my husband will let me I will soooo be there in a heartbeat. I am just starting out in boudoir even though I have been a children\’s and babies photographer for some years now. Can I still come if I do not have experience in boudoir?

    • Sherrie, You are welcome to attend. We can help you get started with a fantastic portfolio! We will do posing and lighting for those that need help. Hope to see you in NYC.
