Last month I attended a Boudoir Workshop in Haliburton, Ontario (about 2.5 hours outside of Toronto) called “Camp Do More” hosted by Brianne and Ewan Phelan from Do More Photographers. It was this boudoir photographer’s dream. Over 150 boudoir photographers came together for a week of learning, photographing and bonding. It was a chance to learn from leading photographers in the boudoir industry, meet online friends I’ve been connecting with for months (and in some cases years), and experiment to my hearts content.
The Camp takes place in a “sleep away camp”, far away from any distractions, so it was 100% all about boudoir. I was able to experiment with outdoor boudoir (including some amazing lake shots), and there was always someone willing to get naked at a moments notice!
I had the opportunity to photograph some amazing models and other boudoir photographers while there, including Rob Woodcox. After discovering Rob Woodcox, I fell in love with his photography work. While not specifically boudoir, it’s creative, colorful, original, and just breath taking. But I didn’t know any of that when I asked him to step in front of my camera. He seemed to have a fun personality, and I reached out to him and asked him to step in front of my camera, which he willing agreed to do.
Then when I realized who he was, I was even more excited to collaborate with such a creative mind. And his intimate portrait session at Camp did not disappoint. He has the sweetest soul of anyone I’ve ever known, and it was such a an amazing creative outlet to explore, try new things, and just bounce ideas of each other, creating some of my favorite images to date.
I have several sessions from Camp Do More that I’ll be sharing with you over the next several months, and Rob’s session is first up. Enjoy!
