Photography workshop “A girl and the snake”

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014
We are going to have two real snakes in the studio. The model will be posing as Eve in Garden of Heaven.
The main inspiration for this photography workshop is a famous Albrecht Durer’s work Adam and Eve and the myth about Medusa Gorgon

We are providing a black background, an antique chair and a big branch of a tree.
The snakes will be slowly crawling over the tree, chair and model’s skin.

  • You will be taken through various lighting setups, easy set builds, posing advice and compositions
  • You will have the opportunity to control the situation, tell model what to do and implement your ideas
  • You keep all the copyrights and you can add your pictures to your portfolio. The photos will be restricted use for portfolio, no commercial use in any way.
  • You will be guided every step of the way by a professional photographer

Animals in the studio

We will have two snakes(different colors). One is really big, the other is small.
The snakes are safe. There will be a professional who will be responsible for the animals.


Our model is beautiful Phylactere
Photo amiability by César Cortez.
We already worked with her(workshop “A girl and the horse”) and know her as a solid professional.
