All of these pictures were taken at the FotoFantasyCamp workshop in February, 2005 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The workshop (you can look it up here) was led by David Mecey, 20+-year Playboy photographer and a wonderful teacher.

It turned out to be a great learning experience for me - besides lighting (which was my main focus of study) I got to work with awesome (and very different) models, experience working in a team (there was about 20 people on the set at all times :-), see how pros work, and pick everyone's brain. David gathered a wonderful team which was open to all my questions and inquiries and made everything go so smoothly.
