Brett Dorron’s interest in photography was first stirred by a school project at the age of ten, but it wasn’t till his mid twenties while inadvertently studying for an Associate Diploma in Applied Photography, that he realised the attraction photography could hold for him. He got a start working as a Press photographer in the 1980’s and 90’s before moving full-time into portrait, wedding, commercial and advertising photography. Brett says “Doing Press work and weddings, you develop skills to handle situations rapidly and get the reactions you want from people. Now, I want to work with a few people over time, to establish a deeper, more legitimate exchange.” Click to read more about Brett here.
This workshop is revamped since its origins at FotoFreo in 2010 and has since been presented nationally and internationally. It now spans four hours and covers more information in greater detail, plus, you get more shooting time with our model, the beautiful Lilly Rae. The Mission Statement for this workshop is: “To ignite the passion for creative art-nude photography in participants, and to arm them with the knowledge and confidence to approach and shoot their own art nudes.”
