We are busy gearing up for our annual artist retreat! Lots of organizing and plotting going on around here for October!
The past two years we spent relaxing times together in Far North Queensland, Australia soaking in the humidity, rain forests, ocean breezes and lots and lots of picture making! You can see our 2009 blog and our 2010 blog about it by clicking on the highlighted text.
This year 20 models and 18 photographers have jumped on board for days filled with making art, seeing old friends and making new ones. At this date we have room for four to five more photographers. The location is ideal, an artist colony, mountains, ocean, desert landscapes, lagoons, horses and beautiful local architecture. We’ll let you know where once you’ve been invited.
We have taken over three boutique hotels and two houses so far all within walking distance of each other. One of the houses will serve as our base of operations.
People who have never been have often asked what it is. It’s not a shoot out, that’s tacky. It’s not a workshop, we’re friends. It’s a genuine artist retreat and a gathering of sorts by invitation only. This is our 10th year and we would love to know if you’d like to join us. Shooting during the day, BBQs and dinners out at night, slide show nights and just chilling. You can schedule shoots with any of the models in attendance if you like, or you can just come and hang out. Your plans are your own. The only schedules we keep are the slide show nights and dinners.
Once you are invited you will be asked to join our private discussion board we have set up for the event so you can keep track of everything. You’ll also be able to see who will be attending once you’ve joined the private board. We have videos and local guide websites posted on the private board.
This is not a commercial endeavor, ARTnudes Network doesn’t make money from this. It’s really just a really cool vacation for those of us who have known each other online for so many years to meet and make art together.
