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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
