About Stan's Shoots

We organize photography workshops and beginners' classes for models and photographers. Our style includes: figure photography, glamour nude, and nude and glamour photography. Most workshops are held in the NYC (Manhattan) or DC areas. We bring together models, photographers and shooting locations in a cooperative way that reduces photographer cost while increasing model revenue. Workshops are held in: NYC, the DC area, Connecticut, Houston, TX, Austin, TX and San Antonio TX.

Please Note: We do not do weddings, children, or family photography.

Please e-mail us for a detailed information on our NYC workshops.


These nude workshops are usually a free-form, non-instructional-type, still photography workshop for the purpose of learning from and sharing with fellow photographers. Generally, photographers will rotate prerogative and responsibility for placement of lights and direction of the model.

We also hold "one-on-one" sessions which allow an individual photographer to work with an individual model. Our one-on-one sessions are usually 20 or 50 minutes long.

Our usual shooting procedure:

This is our usual shooting procedure for regular sessions when working with constant light. Each photographer, in turn, will assume the role of "lead photographer". The lead photographer will have the prerogative for setting the lights and directing the model. The other photographers may shoot at all times, but they may not direct the model, set the lights or block the lead photographer until it is their turn. A photographer may cede their turn as lead photographer. New photographers who feel uncomfortable setting the lights or directing the model should consider taking a beginners' class instead. Photographers should limit their setup times to a few minutes at most since other photographers will be waiting to photograph the model. All photographers should assist the lead photographer in setting up. Complicated props and clothing, which require excessive setup or dressing times must be avoided.

Sessions are usually two hours long, and they end 2 hours after they start.

Image Production:
We also produce high quality images for models' portfolios. We are expert in the portrayal of artistic nude figure studies. Rates are negotiable, & partial, or full, price reductions are occasionally available for highly qualified subjects.

Modification of Agreement:
By accepting our participation, Thumbtack waives any restrictions on the depiction of nudity, this supersedes and amends the Terms of Use Agreement.
