Studio workshops are held at our home base - Studio 212 in Metuchen - the "studio built for glamour".
Our studio was truly built for glamour. My former partner Ron and I searched for over a year until we found the perfect space and moved in back in August, 2003. We were one of the first tenants after new owners had bought the building. One of the things that we really liked was the window light. We had them knock down the wall between two rooms that had windows to make a bigger daylight shooting space, which became Studio A. We usually have this room set up with 3 or 4 sets. Some of the sets that we do in this room include a schoolroom, bedroom, den, and living room.
Another large room, this one with no windows, became Studio B. This room is always set up with studio lights and also includes a 3' x 3' x 3' custom-made white box that we can put one or more models into. We usually shoot this set with our Alien Bees Ringflash. We usually have a platform set up in this room in front of the medium gray wall, that works great with color gels. Another corner in this room has two walls that are painted red and blue.
In summer, 2005, we doubled the size of the studio by renting the rest of the available rooms on our floor. We turned a very large room into Studio D, which is about the size of Studio A and B combined. We had that room gutted, removed the drop ceiling, removed the carpeting and replaced it with a tile floor, removed the two regular-size doors and had a double door installed right in the center of the long wall. This room features a 22' white cyc wall along one end of the room; the other end of the room is painted flat black, and the long wall on the other side features a 10' red and a 10' yellow shooting area. We usually repaint the cyc wall for each workshop.
We also added a second model room that can accommodate 8 or more models directly opposite the double doors of Studio D. We added 3 offices, and doubled the size of our storage and prop room. We then convinced another business that was on our floor to re-locate so that we could take over the last two offices on our floor, which is now my new office and one of my studio partner's office.
The official total amount of rented space is 3055 sf, but we actually have access to much more space. We often shoot in other areas of our building, including the abandoned space on the third floor, the stairwells, the parking lot and other places in and around the studio. We only use the third floor on special occasions since it costs us $300 a day extra rent.
Right now we have 13 Alien Bees at the studio, including the Alien Bee Ringlight. We also have many soft boxes, grids, and beauty dishes, and we usually borrow some extra studio lights for each workshop.

Digital Willy started attending my workshop in September, 2001, and has attended around 200 of our workshops. He is my official workshop photographer and has done many of the photos on individual model pages, posts a page of photos for each workshop, and has posted many individual model pages for our workshop models. He also brings special props and helps us set up theme sets for special occasions. Bill is usually in charge of Studio D, the room with the cyc wall, which he sets up with his distinctive high-key, "Vargas" style lighting. Bill is also an expert at Photoshop and will answer your Photoshop questions at the workshop. Bill has recently joined Michael Lee in running our pre-workshop lighting sessions.

Heather Lee is a model, photographer, and is one of our set designers. Check out her modeling portfolio at
My studio partner Michael has been a big help in setting up for the workshops, painting, and helping to run the workshop. He also runs the pre-workshop lighting sessions and orientation sessions.

Suzie is one of our studio partners and the wife of Michael Lee. Suzie, and her photography partner Dana, often build the sets when Heather is not available. She is also our fill-in official photographer when Digital Willy is not available.
Tom is our official electrician and workshop helper. He built the "world's largest ringlight" for us and usually comes in early on workshop Sundays and helps set up the lights and does whatever else he can to make the workshop run smoothly. Tom is usually in charge of the lighting in Studio B, and helps our one-on-one sessions run smoothly.
Frank lives in Connecticut and recruits many of the models that we use at the workshop, and often gives them a ride to the workshop. Frank is also our location scout and has procured all of the locations that we have used in Connecticut and Westchester County, NY. Frank has attended over 100 workshops since October, 2001.
