IMAGINE – a workshop beyond the ordinary

Nude with Cross Tatoo goes on IMAGINE.jpg

Imagine an artist studio nestled on a ranch in wine country and the Santa Ynez Mountains as your playground.   Four days with an evening session to photograph,  learn new techniques, create art and discover new-found inspiration with soul mates. You will work with models and resident critters for conceptual imagery and figure studies…enjoy breakfast with Ronna and learn the tricks of iphonography…experiment with digital montage…learn the ancient art of encaustic wax…spend time sharing ideas, wine tasting, AND LOVING LIFE.

DISCLAIMER:  This class is dangerous…you can become addicted to ART and never look at photography in the same light again!

 Dates:  June 27 – 30, 2019     
June 27 – 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm
June 28, 29, 30 – 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

Cost:   $800 includes wine tasting/picnic, drinks, snacks, Friday breakfast, materials for art projects

Equipment:   Camera, lenses and “stuff” you work with.  Tripod (optional…I find tripods inhibiting, and prefer to work with high speed ISO).  Laptop with Photoshop, archived images you might want to inquire about using or incorporate with new work, and a texture file if you have this started.  You will receive a jump drive with hand-outs and a texture file of some favorites.

 Location: Solvang, CA   (address provided upon registration)

Registration:   Please send payment through Paypal to and include your name and email address in the “Note” section.  If you prefer to pay by check, please contact Joyce at
