Fuerteventura is one of the Canary Islands, about 4 hours flying from England. It is situated 60 miles off the coast of Morocco and therefore has an all-year climate for outside photography. It is famous for the white sandy beaches and the turquoise water, as well as the volcanic landscape.

Due to this climate and the locations, it is every model photographer's dream, as here cancellations because of rain or cold do not exist.
You will be amazed how much work you can shoot here in 1 week, in northern countries you might need half a year to do the same.

The photoweek will offer you experienced models, posing from bikini/lingerie up to art nude/nude. Since the models need little or no direction, this week is suitable for beginners up to very experienced photographers.

This week is organised by Ton and Marfa, photographers for many years. Ton Schoonderbeek has most of his life been shooting models, and living on Fuerteventura for over 12 years. Marfa is specialised in wildlife photography. They both can help you with details of camera equipment and photographic techniques.

All 5 photographic days will be at different locations on the island, where 1-3 ratio (model-photographers) groupshoots of 3 hours will be held. The remainder of the day are (optional) for shooting the models on 1-on-1 basis, giving you more control and space for your creativity and inspiration. Shoot, compensation and level to be agreed between model and photographer (not included in the photoweek price).
All week transport is available, including transfer from and to airport, and may vary from Transporter to 4x4 depending on locations.

The models:
Even more important than the beautiful locations are the gorgeous models ! We have models with great looks and experience, bringing their own ideas and poses for the beginner photographer, and taking guidance well from the more experienced ones.
All models are happy to pose from clothed/bikini/topless/art nude to nude.
The number of models will depend on the number of photographers, as we work on a 1-3 ratio. The more photographers that come along, the more variation you will have.

Have a look at May's confirmed models !! With locations and models like these, it will be impossible to return home without lots of fantastic shots.
