The Dynamic Nude Workshop: Master Class

Over the years there have been photographers that wanted to attend one of our flagship workshops – but couldn’t handle the rigors of hiking in remote locations, couldn’t take a week off – or afford the over $5,000 of costs involved.

We wanted anyone to be able to experience this truly transformational event – so we captured – on location – all of the best lessons, assignments and wisdom – which you can own, watch and learn how to creatively transform your photography at your own pace, and from the comfort of your own home!

In addition, you’ll receive all the materials that were previously only available to workshop attendees – PLUS you’ll get bonus video tutorials and more.

We are not currently offering our Lake Powell Workshops – however you can own this incredible experience and all the creative tools we provide – now – and experience firsthand what people have been raving about – at a 90% discount off the tuition!

7.  Transcending Snapshots to Create Masterful Photographs

Sure – you could spend weeks, months, or even years reading hefty ‘how-to’ guides or scouring online blogs for tips and tricks on improving your photography.

But why would you want to miss an opportunity to exponentially cut down the learning curve? Our highly knowledgeable and experienced instructors easily distill tomes of technical, conceptual and creative knowledge so that you get only the best parts. What would be a better use of your time than learning how to make your best images right now – rather than trudging through many years of results that might not utilize your full potential?

Many photographers limit their capabilities by only investing in their camera bag – their tools. But it’s not tools that create great photographs – it’s the technician. Brooks Jensen, editor of Lenswork Magazine writes: “To think that one specific kind of equipment makes better photographs misses the point. Better photographers make better photographs. Equipment is never the answer to producing great work.”

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to invest in yourself – and to save yourself the time, money and frustration of taking the slow road to creating your best work.

2. You’ll Get Exclusive BONUS content:

  2. You will receive the complete binder of teaching and inspirational materials, previously only available to workshop attendees ($120 value).

Life In Matter
Leave The Old For New

If you are looking to further advance your photography, go beyond creating just ‘another pretty picture’ and more clearly define your unique style – you’ve come to the right place! In addition to all the areas of craft and technique that you will learn – you also have access to some of the best photographers on the planet for content-based photography.

If this is something that interests you – you’ll learn how to take an image beyond a simple snapshot – and create a truly dynamic photograph: cumulating the best elements of the technical side of an image with the most important part – what it means to you, and what you would like it to convey to your audience. Each photographer has not only a unique ‘eye’ for seeing the world around them – but also a unique perspective on life. When this is harnessed and incorporated into your photographs – they can evolve into truly wonderful works of art.

“Whether you are a landscape photographer – whether you are a figure photographer – a newbie or experienced – you’ll have the experience of a lifetime. For me it was experiencing new ways of seeing and making truly fine art. I had a fantastic time!” ~Keith Harper

“The Dynamic Nude is one of the most unique photo workshops available. The combination of location, models, instructors, and group dynamics provide an experience you could not get anywhere else. You will leave the workshop with a different perspective on your photography and approach to figure imagery.” ~Bert Pasquale, Baltimore, MD

“If you want to get away from the hectic day to day grind and experience a tranquil week along the remote back waterways of Lake Powell, then Joel Belmont has a great trip for you. If you also want to learn or improve your ability to take fine art photographs of the nude figure in this remote environment, then Joel’s Dynamic Nude Workshop is definitely something you should consider. Not only did we all get some great images – but I learned how to take my photography to the next level. We worked in small groups and the instructors showed us some of their special tips and techniques, especially how to work with the models. The models were great and it was a pleasure to get to know them and the other students and instructors over the course of a very special week. Just imagine yourself in a boat full of excited students and talented models moving deeper into the various turns of the waterway with cliffs rising several hundred feet above the water line. Then, after arriving where few people can go, you hike to scenic locations to direct energetic models and create a fine art image. The scenery, the peaceful environment and the friendships you will experience are alone worth the trip.” ~Randy Persinger

“I’ve been to a half dozen workshops… it’s better than any workshop I’ve been to. It far surpassed my expectations.”~Peter Laursen

“Participating in the Fall Workshop was one of the most enriching experiences of my life! Joel and Lili are both so knowledgeable about the Lake Powell environment and all the intricate details of how to shoot there and produce the best possible images. They are also experienced hosts who can cook delicious food and provide diverse entertainment throughout the trip. What more could you ask for?” ~Lily Kennedy, Carbondale, CO

“If you are the kind of photographer who wishes they had more time with their camera, and more time to think and talk about photography and learn, you couldn’t find a better way to spend six days.” ~Jay Watkins

“You are in for a treat! Joel was an excellent host – very knowledgeable of his trade and the surroundings. This was a thrilling trip through the grand landscapes of Lake Powell, a trip that I would definitely do again!” ~Randa Morgan, Seattle, WA

“I recently had the pleasure of spending a week with Joel Belmont on and around Lake Powell for one of his Photographic Workshops. The closest thing to a complaint I can think of is that I wish it could have lasted longer. That said, I have so many beautiful and varied photos that I don’t know that I needed more time. I recommend that anyone with an interest in photography not to miss this opportunity.” ~Greg Fullmer, Bakersfield, CA

“This is by far the best workshop I have ever attended. I invite those considering the workshop to sign up immediately so that you can discover the awe first-hand. You will not be disappointed.” ~Andrea, Grand Junction, CO

“Joel did a great job of scouting out the best locations for photography, being aware of local conditions, access and photographic opportunities at each site. He was available to provide help and guidance to those who needed it, and generous with his time, while leaving more experienced photographers free and unencumbered to pursue their own photographic inspiration. The locations covered a wide range of photographic possibilities, from the grandiose to the intimate: sand dunes, slot canyons, panoramic vistas, monolithic sandstone cliffs, lake reflections, night skyscapes and light painting.

“The atmosphere on the trip was friendly, relaxed and informal. There was a full and demanding schedule of activities for every day of the trip, morning and evening, but with ample time for relaxation, sport, socializing, introspection, sharing and discussion. The group size was small enough to be intimate, and most of us now consider each other friends for life. I would have no hesitation in going on this trip again or recommending it.”~Dr. N. Sukumar

“The workshop was mind-blowing… incredible! If you have the opportunity to attend this workshop – do it! It was a truly magical experience.” ~Gwen, San Francisco, CA

“I produced some of the best images I have ever taken and received very useful feedback from the instructors, models and other participants. Well worth the time and effort.” ~Greg Edwards, Half Moon Bay, CA

“It’s one of the most spectacular places I’ve had a chance to shoot in.” ~Hank Niles

“This was my first visit to Utah and it will be with me for life. Fresh, crisp air, daily hiking, gigantic rocks growing straight out of the water – I was surrounded by amazing beauty everywhere. The delicious home cooked meals, lots of laughs by the campfire… I didn’t want to go home!” ~Tish, Los Angeles, CA

“This is the “Great American Landscape” that you don’t get in Europe. Here you discover a completely new world, and it opens your mind to new ideas to be photographed.” ~Miguel Soler-Roig, Spain

“It helped me advance my skills to a new level. It’s worth every penny. It’s the adventure of a lifetime, and you’ll love every minute of it.” ~Lonnie, Palisade, CO

“The food is out of this world. We’ve been eating like we’re on a cruise ship every night. It was worth twice the price. You’ve got to experience it. These guys really know what they are doing… it’s awesome.” ~David Wagner,

Gwen

“This is a workshop I would definitely recommend to other photographers. The setting was exquisite even without the models, but the models brought another dimension to the entire photographic experience. My skill level has grown as a result, specifically working more toward consistency. I also learned a great deal in how to best communicate with a model – thus improving my images. I was very impressed by the willingness and flexibility of the models as they did their best to help me achieve the images I was envisioning. I also appreciated the camaraderie and willingness of the other photographers to share experiences and technical information. I consider the week a great success.”

Richard Hannon

Orange, CA
“This workshop was an amazing opportunity to learn not only the art of photography but also to see and experience the beauty of Lake Powell. I really had no idea what was in store for me, other than camping under the stars, and lots of photography. This workshop would have been worth the time and expense if that was all there was. But there is so much more. Joel really built my self-confidence in my photography skills, and I learned years’ worth of self-taught experience in a weeks’ time. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone at any level of your photographic journey.”
