Back by popular demand for 2012, Adam Chilson is opening up his personal studio and rain rig for a rain, wind, and water shoot experience. Over the course of a single night, a select number of photographers will gather for an action-packed shootout on a 20ft reflection pool under a massive rain rig. Experience and shoot rain, wind, and water with four, in-demand professional models. Arrive at dusk, and shoot ’till Dawn!

Shoot a range of models, themes, and lighting styles in the water and rain. From fine art nudes to mysterious fantasy themes, to powerful woman commanding the elements. Rain, wind, and water FX, from delicate mists to a torrential downpour. Come away with final images that are sure to stand out in any photographer’s portfolio. It doesn’t get much better than this.

This is NOT just another group shoot. Attendance will be restricted to a maximum of six photographers. Turn-based shooting to give everyone a chance to get some personal action through the lens. Each participant will be given time with each model on set, to direct and refine their own personal creative vision.

Makeup, body paint, and SFX by Lisa Berczel of Battledress
