SHOOT OUT WITH TAYLOR OAKES
SUNDAY February 23rd @ 4:00pm | The Palms SOLD OUT
MONDAY February 24th @ 10:00am | The Palms

Taylor is a petite pansexual pervert, a lifestyle switch and a bit of a control freak.
If that doesn't seem like a sentence to you, take her class and find out what exactly those words in that order mean.

Watching pretty people suffer started as a hobby and then slowly blended into a part of her business model and main clientele. Taylor's main focus is on commercial photography for the health and wellness market.

When she's not shooting fitness, she's shooting sex, sadists and everyday humans that are looking to release their inner weird.

KINK SHOOT OUT WITH TAYLOR :
Kink concepts will demystify the world of BDSM, intensify your imagery and put you in a position to inject more power into your posing.

This class will demonstrate how to incorporate power dynamics into your posing of both individuals, duos and potentially even trios. Taylor will be demonstrating from her posing guide (and then some) with the help of some familiar faces.

The shoot out will include access to and demonstrations with toys and props including, but not limited to, blindfolds, floggers, gags, belts, wax and other fun stuff. Beyond the tentpoles of shooting stranger sh*t, Taylor will also talk about the sex positive and kink community, how to find these humans as your clients and how to adjust your verbiage for a world you may not know much about.

If this description made you uncertain or uncomfortable, you should take this class.

There will be latex. Unless there's an allergy. In which case there will be leather.

This is a 2 hour structured shootout limited to only 12 students. $250.

Please note that the Sunday shoot out is SOLD OUT. A second class has been added for Monday @ 10:00am. Registration below is only for the added 10:00 time slot.


SHOOT OUT WITH ALEXANDREA AND DANIEL JOHNSON
MONDAY February 24th @ 10:00 am | MGM Grand

We were two young and dumb kids from two completely different parts of the United States who, fell in love, and never looked back. We knew we were better together, so we got married despite the whole Romeo and Juliet type family complex. As a military family, we were fortunate to photograph many different people in many gorgeous locations, all while starting a family. Meanwhile, Alexandrea was finishing her education in Rehab and Trauma Counseling, all with hopes of combining it one day, with her love of art, photography and working with people.

Finally, after leaving the military life behind, we decided combine all that we love and are passionate about. We love being able to support our love of travel, art and freedom to be with our kids. We get to provide a therapeutic experience tailor-made to the needs of our clients. It’s not about getting a picture, it’s about capturing the person they want to see in the mirror and then giving them the support to know it’s okay to make yourself a priority. Give yourself permission to love yourself in a way, that you love others.

MAKING YOUR CLIENT FEEL LIKE ART : THE 4 STYLE APPROACH TO SHOOTING
SHOOT OUT w ALEXANDREA AND DANIEL :
This class is a 2-perspective approach (ie. a dual educator team) to intimate portraiture and making the experience the priority. During this class you will address how to offer editorial, fine art nude, abstract and emotional portraiture all in a single session. Learn how we maximize content without overwhelming your client. Class would be great for teams of 2 or individuals.

This is a 2 hour structured shootout limited to only 12 students. $250.


SHOOT OUT WITH BOON ONG
MONDAY February 24th @ 1:00pm | The Palms

Boon Ong is an award winning and internationally published photographer, widely recognized for his storytelling and nude art approach in his work.

Born and raised in a conservative asian family and a country (Malaysia) where homosexuality can be criminalized, a huge part of Boon’s life was living within constraints, secrecy, and frustration. It was the sense of rebellious and contradiction to his upbringing that kept Boon photographing nudes. He wants to use his art as a way to yell for new freedom, break down barriers, and create a safe space for people to find confidence in their own body and sexuality. He insists not to comply to any pre-established constraints and made a mission to be as open as possible to photograph anyone regardless of their intention, gender, age, sexuality, body shape, race, venue or intention.

STORYTELLING NUDE ART W. BOON ONG :
In the era when everyone can be a photographer, just by being able to take a good image is no longer enough. What sets a good photographer apart is their ability to create images that make you stop, feel something and take a deep breathe. And this is done through stories, always. 

In the shoot out, Boon will walk you through his creating process, guiding you to shoot by intention, how to collaborate with your subject, understanding movements and capturing image with storytelling elements in the most efficient way. Infusing the element of nude art, we will be working with nude models and play around various intentions, storytelling elements and creative posing. This is a highly interactive class that really makes you think before you click the shutter.

This is a 2 hour structured shootout limited to only 12 students. $250.


SHOOT OUT WITH ORE ADESINA
MONDAY February 24th @ 4pm | The Palms

Hi! I’m Ore Adesina, an intimate lifestyle and boudoir photographer based out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I’ve won some photography awards (what what!) and been published both online and in print (*insert squeal of delight). I originally started my photography career photographing sports and documentary style family portraits. Now focusing on intimate lifestyle and boudoir portraits, I strive to capture men and women of all shapes and sizes, with the goal of capturing the “perfectly imperfect” and helping clients see the best versions of themselves. One of my all-time favourite things to photograph, and what I’m known for with my photography work, is intimate couples portraits, and I’m excited to teach you what I know at Do More Las Vegas in February 2020.

INTIMATE COUPLES BOUDOIR SHOOT OUT WITH ORE :
This class focuses on Intimate Couples Boudoir and capturing connection and intimacy in relationships. My take on intimate couples portraits is a little different than the norm. I’m worried less about getting the “perfect pose” or angle, and focused more on capturing deep connection, love and intimacy between couples. My goal is to provide couples with a gallery of digital portraits in which they can see their relationship reflected back at them. When a couple says, “this is so us!” after viewing their gallery, I’ve done my job.

During the course, we’ll cover getting couples prepared prior to the couples boudoir session, how to get couples to relax in front of the camera, setting boundaries (before the session), what I use to get emotion out of couples during the session, and we’ll also do a live shoot!

This is a 2 hour structured shootout limited to only 12 students. $250.


SHOOT OUT WITH AARON AND ELIZABETH VOVK
TUESDAY February 25th @ 2:00 pm | The Luxor

Aaron and Elizabeth have been in the photography industry for 10 years and crushing the boudoir game for 5 of those years.  In addition to being full time photographers, Aaron and Elizabeth are parents to five children...yes, you read that right...FIVE homeschooled children.  In their spare time they enjoy sipping coffee or Jameson (out of a coffee mug) on their deck and throwing the ball for their German Short Hair Pointer, Bentley.

OFF CAMERA FLASH SHOOT OUT WITH AARON AND ELIZABETH :
Not using off camera flash?  Do you find it intimidating or overwhelming?  Maybe you just can’t get it to look ‘right.’  Let Minneapolis based husband and wife duo, Aaron and Elizabeth, SHOW you how to effectively use off camera flash so you can bring your vision to life!  During this hands-on class, you’ll learn to choose the proper light modifier to set the tone and mood of your scenes.  We’ll demonstrate different lighting diagrams, optimal placement for your lights and how shifting your lights impact the final image.  Finding camera settings to be confusing?  We’ll tackle that and so much more.  Bring your cameras and get ready for the best hands-on learning experience you’ve ever had!

This is a 2 hour structured shootout limited to only 15 students. $250.
