Master class: cost
A master class with 2 models lasts 7 days: two days of instruction including Photoshop and Lightroom manipulation and printing; two days scouting locations, and two or three days with a single model in the field. Shooting takes place entirely on location in the incomparable Italian landscape in secret places that few people aside from Patrick Nicholas know of. A nude in such a landscape that the likes of Titian and Giorgione knew can hardly fail to produce breathtaking results.
Patrick has been a professional photographer since he graduated in Photographic Arts in 1977 and has lived in Italy for nearly 30 years so he has a lot of knowledge to impart.
The price for the 6 complete days of photo school, and 6 nights is €1,900 including accommodation, the modelling fee, two dinners, breakfast and lunch every day and transport to the locations PLUS one fine art print up to 30x40cm (16×12″) of your best shot on Hahnemuhle paper.
Seng Mah from Australia (above left) gives directions to our model in the Sacred Glade at Poggio Conte, another remote location in which one can work undisturbed. The sound of the waterfall, the shafts of sunlight through the branches, the fact that this has been a sacred place for thousands of years, lends a magical atmosphere to this unique location.
