Join master photographer and Director Mark de Paola and Leica Akademie USA for “Nude In The Landscape” masterclass in the hallowed photographic grounds of Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur, California to experience the process of capturing timeless fine art nude photographs the weekend of October 25-27.

This shooting intensive master workshop is designed for creative portrait or landscape photographers interested in exploring new ways to capture portraits and nudes within the landscape.

More than just a technical or how to workshop, participants will be asked to consider their own goals and motivations as photographers. The class will be encouraged to explore how a form may represent or depict strength, poise, movement, or a frame of personality. We will look back to the history of fine art for inspiration, exploring the use of the human figure as a subject and the model as “Muse” and collaborator.


  • Classical vs. Unconventional Composition
  • Using Lighting, Shape and Form to Create a Narrative and Mood
  • Visualization
  • Posing and Collaboration
  • What is a timeless image and how to create it
  • Taking a picture vs. creating a fine art photograph
