GMark Art Photography
gmark started doing studio photography in his garage in 2003. Figure work was always his focus, first with dancers, then others such as pole dancers, fitness, and also erotica. His lighting is self taught and continues to evolve. He started working with the fetish community several years ago. "Lighting shibari is not unlike lighting dance! I took to it like a duck to water," gmark said.
gmark has been teaching a intro to photography at the college level for over 20 years. He is looking forward to expanding that for this workshop.
Outdoor Photo Field Trip
Time & Date
Have you ever wanted to take advantage of nature's backdrop and take photos of your partner/a model outdoors? In this class, gmark will lead a "field trip" around the Studio Friction back lot and adjacent property to scope out potential locations for an outdoor bondage shoot. He'll discuss pros and cons of each location as well as lighting and other considerations. Demos will be performed, and photos will be taken and discussed in each chosen spot. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the differences between shooting indoors and shooting in nature, and learning how to use the outdoors to your (and your model's) advantage.
What Makes a Good Kink Photo
Time & Date
This class will have two professional photographers showing and talking about their favorite pics they have taken and explaining light and composition that makes them good. It's an open forum where questions and even critiques of audience photos will be given. If possible we will have a demonstration.
