Last 2 places. Deposit not required. Contact me if you want to attend.

The workshop aims to show the possibilities and pitfalls when photographing models. You will have the opportunity to peek behind the scenes and get another perspective on the issue of photographing not only the nude art photographs.

Under the expert guidance of Jiri Ruzek you will learn how to work with model, how to achieve the desired effect learning the intricacies of your camera, playing with lights and shadows, different lenses, angles and distances, how to avoid unnecessary and often repeated mistakes etc...

You will learn the basics of composition and if you will listen carefully, you will also learn how to give the photo a little extra, because the mastery of technique is not everything and there is still a big difference between taking a picture of a naked girl and creating a nude art photograph.

 

SHOOTING MUST BE FUN, NOT DRUDGERY!

They are not typically commercial, on the contrary, they are full of casual friendly atmosphere.

"Jiri Ruzek is one of the most talented nude art photographers in Europe, and he is more than willing to share his love of the craft with other prospective photographers. As a student studying abroad at FAMU, I found the tools and techniques taught in Jiri's workshop to be extremely valuable. He does more than teach you how to simply set up a flattering studio light. He teaches how to work with the model, how to build a relationship with a model based on trust and creativity, and how to perfectly blend art and sex appeal to achieve the desired photo. I was able to learn and take away a lot of valuable information in Jiri's workshops that I will be able to use in my own photography for the rest of my life."

"Спасибо за воркшоп с Иржим Ружекем. За его опыт, за умение создать расслабленную и благоприятную атмосферу для обучения. Надеюсь, полученные знания останутся во мне и прорастут красивыми ростками в моем творчестве."

"I've done the photography workshop with Jiri. I can assure you that it was an extraordinary experience! Jiri is an artist but a good teacher who knows very well explain with many good tricks. He delivered me a lot of answers to my technical and aesthetic questions. The model was also very professional. She understands her job well and helps you a lot. Finally, I had the impression of being a real step forward with this artistic experience that I highly recommend!"

"I completed a workshop in basic studio photography with Jiri this July. Jiri is clearly an accomplished photographer with an easy teaching style that I appreciated. I am new to photography and was looking for a workshop that covered lighting and composition as well as how to work with models. Jiri thoroughly covered all of these areas. The course exceeded all of my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for photography teacher. I am planning to return to Prague and continue to study with Jiri."

"Prague is an enchanting city which I hope to re-visit again. My wonderful experience however, would not have been complete had I not included a (4 hour) workshop with the highly talented photographer Jiri and a photo shoot the day after with an exquisitely beautiful model, Marilyn.
I would describe Jiri’s workshop as a master-class, where one learns directly from an artist around his style and together with a model that he has a long professional history with. Even though I consider myself being an amateur photographer I was, under the guidance of Jiri, able to produce a portfolio that I am very proud off.
The workshop with Jiri was a lot of fun. Jiri’s approach as an artist and teacher is interactive as he facilitates an environment which is very social and comfortable and which entails a few glasses of wine and a few laughs. This resulted in an enjoyable evening where I got to work under similar conditions as a professional photographer – A great and memorable experience.
Jiri was also kind enough to also book the photography studio for me the day after and I had the privilege to work with an extremely talented model and practice the skills that I developed from the workshop.
I look forward to continue practicing the techniques, lessons and skills that Jiri has taught me in the workshop. "

"Jiri is not only a great teacher of photography. Probably the most important thing he taught me is the importance of communication."

"Jiri, thanks for the one day workshop. I had a great time and learnt a lot. Picked up some great camera techniques and photography tricks from yourself.
Enjoyed pursuing my interest in nude photography and appreciated your expert guidance in this area.
I will definitely recommend your course or tuition and look forward to visiting your studio next year:) "

"I was in Prague two years ago for two reasons: to know one of the most beautiful cities of Europe and to meet a great photographer I like very much: Jiří Růžek! So I spent some time with Jiří, speaking about photography and drinking the good Czech beer. I very much enjoyed Jiri, not only a great photographer but also a great person."

Jiri Ruzek

"Jiri is among the leading contemporary Czech nude art photographers. His work goes far beyond the borders of that small European country. Jiri’s seductively provoking, mostly black and white photographs are widely published in art books across the world. He is well known for his work. Jiri teaches highly sought-after one-to-one photography workshops. People from all around the globe have traveled to Prague to learn from him.

His photos are based on emotive nude art portraits and he calls this unkempt-like style the Uglamour (ugly glamour). Uglamour means natural beauty, Jiri's models are always captured as strong personalities, not baby-dolls." (Alien Skin)

Alessandra is one of the best Italian nude art models, sought by many Italian and foreign photographers.

"She has everything I expect from my models. She is incredibly hot, has a huge dose of femininity, a beautiful body and an expressive face, a lot of experiences and an absolutely professional attitude. And she loves a camera and the camera loves her!"
