Soft Open, April 14, 2021

A select group of invited artists from around the world joined us for a mid-day session and created some amazing work, as we refined our presentations. See reference photos and work here.

Session One, May 5, 2021

We officially opened the doors of the Atelier to artists on Cinco de Mayo with a range of costumed and nude poses in varying settings to flex our (and our member artists’) creative muscles right out of the gate!

Session Two, The Yellow Wallpaper, May 25, 2021

Our second session brought powerful interpretations of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story The Yellow Wallpaper with 3 long poses and some moving work by all our member artists.

Session Three, Art Nouveau, June 12, 2021

Our third session brought a single long pose along with a portrait view on the second camera, in an elaborate and detailed set inspired by the Art Nouveau posters of Alphonse Mucha. Leigh’s grace and elegance inspired some incredible creations from this session.

Session Four, Ballet, July 14, 2021

We celebrated Bastille Day with a return to Leigh’s roots as a dancer, following our ballerina through her day from rehearsal studio, to rehearsal and performance on stage to a dramatic performance and portrait taking her bows. A total of 59 dynamic poses, if you missed this one, we highly recommend the reference photo pack, 118 photos for $20.

Session Five, Judith & Holofernes, August 12, 2021

Leigh and Will pulled out all the stops to maximize drama and storytelling, presenting four poses recreating depictions of this extremely popular story of Judith striking a blow to defend her homeland against invading general Holofernes.
