This event unfolds in the captivating backdrop of Latvia, a Baltic gem known for its rich history and stunning natural beauty. Your journey begins at Riga Airport (RIX), the closest gateway to this picturesque setting. As with our tradition, it's an all-inclusive experience – simply arrive at the airport, and we'll handle the rest. Over the course of three days, we'll explore three remarkable locations: old manors and a historic castle, each with its own fascinating history. You'll have the opportunity to photograph our beautiful art nude models with a shooting ratio of 2:1, allowing two photographers working in one group to work with one model. Plus, styling will be provided by Liva Steina with her lingerie brand Flash You And Me, adding a touch of creativity and elegance to your photographic experience.
What is included?
*Schedule may change due to unpredictable circumstances
There were once countless historical manors in Latvia, built by the German aristocracy that had dominated, culturally, for most of Latvia's written history. However, the 1905 revolution, followed by the two world wars, did a lot to reduce the number. There are about 600 manors left now, but many of them are left to fall into ruin, and only old photos are witness to their former splendor. Today, Latvians are making dedicated efforts to preserve these historical monuments to the best of their ability, each assigned a unique purpose. Consequently, the condition of each manor can vary significantly in the present day. During “Manor Muses: 2:1 May Edition” We will get to explore the beautifully refurbished Igate Manor, historical Oleri Manor and scary Lielstraupe Castle.
Our photoshoots are designed to offer a dynamic and collaborative experience. You'll have the opportunity to work within a 2:1 ratio, with two photographers collaborating on capturing the beauty of one model, providing a supportive and creative atmosphere. Additionally, for those looking to explore more intricate compositions, we offer the possibility of shooting duo and even group shots with multiple models, allowing for a quartet or more in a single frame. At the culmination of our event, we'll host an exciting photo contest. Each photographer can submit approximately five of their best images taken during the event, and a friendly competition ensues, with prizes awaiting those who craft the most outstanding pictures. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase your creativity and receive recognition for your artistry (the contest is a voluntary activity)
Our lineup of models for the event is as diverse as the art you'll be creating. You'll have the opportunity to capture their beauty and grace in various genres, including fashion, portraiture, and art nude photography. Whether you're seeking elegance, emotion, or artistic expression, our models are here to bring your creative visions to life.
Throughout our event, you'll have the pleasure of staying at the picturesque Igate Manor. Each attendee will have a private room with a private bathroom, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience. This historic yet modern setting promises a memorable stay during our photography event.
