Join me for fun and inspiring, photography and body-painting retreats in spectacular locations around the world. My paintings have received extensive international media attention and praise for their detail and uniqueness.
Come to laugh, learn, create, and explore...and take home new skills, fantastic photographs, and wonderful memories.
Bring your partners to serve as your models, or hire one of the models on location.
You do not have to be an 'artist' to beautifully paint human bodies. All painting is done with a brush and specialty body-paint; there is no airbrushing, templates or stencils.
Learn painting techniques that enhance the human form.
Learn basic photography techniques to capture your body-paintings.
Create beautiful paintings and photographs in spectacular destinations.
Enjoy excursions and activities offered by our gorgeous destinations.
Take home dozens of high-resolution digital photographs.

Anticipated Daily Schedules:
Arrive on location, explore the beautiful surroundings, meet the other participants...relax, laugh, and enjoy.
Start the day with an interactive slide show presentation, combined with practical demonstrations to reveal the techniques behind my body-paintings and photographs. Understand our paints, mixing liquids, tips on application, etc.
Whether you are using an advanced SLR, or a mobile device, I will show you how to get great photographs of your paintings as we get outside and enjoy our destination. Your paintings will wash off all too quickly...but the photographs will last forever.
Choose different parts of your partner's body to focus on...hands, arms, legs, faces, torsos...as we explore the forms of our bodies with paint. Photograph the results with your new-found photography skills (I will help).
Soak in the morning life of our destination, take a tour, explore, enjoy our location.
At 1:00, we re-group to create our first full-body masterpiece.
See how body-painting can reveal your inner beauty by enhancing forms, instead of focussing on surface blemishes.
We will allow our laughter, fun, and and creative juices to flow.
Needless to say, we are going out on the town dressed in our paint. If you are shy, don't worry...nobody will recognize you.
Now it is time for our body casts. Pick a body part that will fit in your suitcase and have your partner make a plaster cast...then return the favor. Then we will pull out our acrylic paints to create a 3-D work of art on our plaster casts...and create a souvenir or gift to take home.
Then mid-afternoon we break out the black lights and get ready for the evening Glow Paint exhibition. We will use UV activated paints to make surreal, glow in the dark paintings on ourselves and any innocent bystander in reach (don't worry...they usually line up to be painted).
Pack your painted casts, secure your digital photographs, and say your goodbyes...or take advantage of our discounted room rates to extend your stay.
All models are required to wear bottoms of some kind. Models provided by us may also wear pasties or bras. When in public, pasties are required.
Full refunds (less the deposit) will be given if the retreat is cancelled 90 days or more before the Retreat commencement date. No refunds can be given within 90 days of the Retreat commencement date.
