Nude photography workshop on ancient sites with global photo community

April 25th to May 2nd 2004 will be exceptionally
hot in Cancun, Mexico, as the Nikonians global
photography community meets for a weeklong
exclusive workshop with nude models.

The internationally renowned photographer Pascal Baetens and the global photography community Nikonians teach interested photographers how to improve their nude and portrait photography in Cancun, Mexico this spring.

Some 30 international, serious amateur photographers will have the chance on improving their eye-skills around pyramids, haciendas and on beaches together with the lead photographer Pascal Baetens from Belgium in Mexico this April.

“It’s too cold to do this at home right now” says Bo Stahlbrandt, one of the two Nikonians founders, while suffering the crude German winter. Mexico is a land of a thousand traditions, offering a target-rich scenery and many good shooting locations for both advanced photographers as well as newcomers. With the locations and models provided, the photographers will be provided many opportunities to bring back real value and experience.

“The paradisiacal Mayan Riviera with turquoise waters, white talcum powder beaches and jungle, fantastic weather and splendid sunsets, is a must visit for any serious photographer.” says the founder J. Ramón Palacios. “Add the main Mayan ruins sites at exclusive and private guided off-hours sessions and it becomes a dream destination.”

A lot of interest is expected for this exclusive tour and workshop. Early-bird rebates provided throughout February. Additional information available at
