Each month I teach a workshop at Parkwood Studios in Phoenix Arizona. In December 2015 I decided to go with a sexy santa’s helper theme for teaching lighting and for great holiday fun!
Our model was Jewell McCormick who I have worked with on a number of occasions this last year. A friend of mine and fellow photographer, Tom Becker, asked if he could come and be Santa. Sure, let’s do this thing.
We setup both studios. The larger Studio 2 had a sofa, Christmas tree and other props. Studio 1 had some great holiday backdrops from Savage Universal. This way we could send the attendees back and forth and we made changes to the set or backgrounds so they could keep shooting images.
What we got were get planned images and some spontaneous Bad Santa images as Tom and Jewell improved on the set.
I hope you enjoy images below as much as I did capturing them.
Happy New Year and all the best in 2016!
