Fashion and Portrait Photography
3-day intensive workshop
September 10-14, 2011 - Weston Park, UK
Instructors: Drew Gardner and Natalie Dybisz “Miss Aniela”
Limited to 16 participants
For more details, including schedule and details on how to register, please see:

Each workshop participant will receive a Phase One 60-megapixel IQ160 camera system (comprising a Phase One 645DF camera body, IQ160 back and lenses) to use throughout the workshop. Attendees will also receive a free copy of both Capture One Pro and Media Pro software.  Shooting sessions will be complemented by classroom instruction on topics ranging from visualization to composition, capture, workflow and presentation.

“I have taught at workshops all over the world,” said Drew Gardner, “but this one will be special. We’ll be working with models in a beautiful setting where we will have so much freedom to explore new settings and new approaches. I will be sharing my techniques with participants to give them the tools that will help them make their picture special long after the workshop has ended.”

Miss Aniela said, “I will be showing my entire process from shooting to RAW workflow and retouching, which can be anything from simple adjustments to intricate compositing. I’ll be applying post-production techniques to create surreal and arresting imagery as seen in my self-portraiture, but also showing the importance of the thinking process behind it.”

And Kevin Raber, host of the PODAS workshop series and vice president of Phase One USA said, “I am thrilled to be organizing this workshop at such a spectacular location and with such talented instructors.”

Previous PODAS workshops have generally focused on landscape photography instruction and have been held in locations such as Australia, Death Valley, Iceland and Ireland.  Future workshops are now being designed and will be announced.  To learn more about past, current and future workshops, please check the PODAS blog: .
