why is bare different?

Bare goes beyond beautiful imagery. We provide instruction for photographers through practical process and sketchbook envisioning with a focus on self-identification. Bare Process is about you. It’s about learning how to create. We instruct you through our own personal developed processes to help you create your own. This allows you to show your ideas and how they were created in order to understand yourself as an artist. 

We believe in working and connecting with you. At this workshop; there will be two one on one portfolio reviews and a follow-up call two months after the workshop. These lifestyle shoots will take you from start to finish. We only allow small shooting groups. This ensures that each person will have the time to direct and envision. We want you to connect with others and build your network, for each series there will be a Facebook group to understand the group's needs and for any questions.
