Bella Spa Raw-Beauty Intensive





















Join Bella Spa and Monty Knowles for an eye-opening Raw-Beauty workshop on Saturday, August 16, 2014 in Blue Hill, Maine.


Monty is a catalyst for exposing true beauty and self awareness. He combines photography, yogic relaxation and posture adjustments with positive thinking skills to tap into your inner beauty and dramatically change your exterior appearance.


Experience first-hand how powerful, simple adjustments to your posture and thoughts drastically alter how others perceive you…and how you perceive yourself.


Private two-hour photography sessions are also being offered. These are not your standard sessions. They are an intensive unveiling of your natural beauty from the masks of makeup, negative emotions, and bad posture. Included in these sessions are 5 high-quality digital art-photographs.



The 2-hour group Raw Beauty workshop is $35 for adults and $20 for students

2-hour photography sessions are $395 


All profits will benefit the non-profit foundation CUBE.




Ensure that you are well-rested the before the shoot. Avoid heavy drinking and partying the night before and be as healthy as you can be.


Do not wear makeup or stress about getting your hair styled and coiffed.


Dress comfortably and relaxed. Bring high heels or ‘power’ clothes in bags if you think you might want them to be used as accessories. Remember that the session is about you, not your clothes, so expect to have few if any changes of clothing.


After the session:


Expect the completed photographs to be delivered to you within 72 hours by email. These photographs will have a watermark and will be licensed for use on social media websites.


Miscellaneous Notes and Conditions:


  1. By accepting this session, you agree to not alter your photographs in any way including cropping when printing or posting online.
  1. The photographer retains the copyright for all images. However no images will be displayed or used in any way by the photographer without prior approval in writing from the client




Who will see and have access to my photographs?


Only the photographer, you, and the people you designate will have access to the photographs. You may send or show them to whomever you like once you download them. At the end of the session, you will be given a private pin to access your photographs from Monty’s website.


Upon request, all copies of the photographs will be deleted from the encrypted hard drive and website storage. 


What should I wear?


Wear loose, comfortable clothing that does not constrict or cause indentations in your skin. You are not coming for a fashion shoot so your clothes will be an accessory to you, not vice versa


You don’t used Photoshop. What about pimples, scars and other things I don’t like?


Pimples and other temporary aberrations are removed during the development process. Scars, wrinkles and other permanent items are not removed but expect to see them differently after the session.


Can I wear makeup?


Makeup is a mask designed to hide the real you. We are peeling back the layers to discover how beautiful YOU are. So no makeup. Light mascara may be used as it enhances the eyes but does not hide anything.

Can I bring a friend or family member?

Absolutely. But please let them bring a book or similar entertainment as they will not be present with us in the same space during the shoot. Clients under 18 are an exception. They are required to have a parent present at all times in a discreet location where they are not a distraction.


Is Nudity or Partial Nudity Permitted?   


Over 18 may be photographed nude or partially nude.  


May I have the images in RAW format?

No. You will be presented with finished, high-resolution art photographs in JPEG format.
