Join us for five days in the beautiful city of Rincon, Puerto Rico at a private location with eight luxurious villas right on the beach for some of the most ideal shooting conditions and locations. Stay in one of our 22 bedroom options that offer semi to full privacy options for you and/or a spouse/guest. Enjoy ocean views from the giant covered patios and decks, lounge in one of several hammocks, or enjoy a cool dip in the rooftop pool during workshop downtime. Arrive as early as Wednesday evening, with the workshop officially kicking off Thursday evening, ending out a full day of private shooting that following Monday, with everyone leaving out Tuesday. Spouses and/or guests are allowed to accompany you for this workshop at additional costs.
All models, HMUAs, assistants, and photographers should be on location and checked into the Villas by 8:00 pm Thursday evening. If you need to arrive earlier, or plan to arrive Wednesday, please coordinate travel and lodging first to confirm an open room, as not all villas will be available on Wednesday. If you need to arrive after 8:00 pm Thursday, please coordinate travel times with Gold Rush Destinations so someone is available to get you settled into your room. We will have a catered dinner beginning at 8:15 pm on this night for an unofficial meet and greet of everyone, as well as assign models to their photographer(s) and go over the weekend's schedule.

Private shoots are available from sunrise to sunset with your model(s) of choice. Private shoots must be scheduled with HMUA at $35/shoot/model, and at the discretion of the model, beginning at $100/hour. All villas will be available for anyone not traveling out until Tuesday.

Join us at the original home of Gold Rush Destinations! We will arrive on location Thursday, August 17, for a quick introduction before we spend the next three days upon some of north Georgia's most lush 300 acres of private property. With two river locations, horses on site, and unlimited shooting possibilities, this is one workshop you won't want to miss! Workshop officially ends Sunday evening with an extra day of private shooting should your schedule allow it. See a detailed itinerary below of the weekends activities.
Models and workshop attendees arrive. All models will be staying on location at the main house of the property for the entire weekend with the beauty team. We will have a small meet up that is not mandatory to attend beginning at 7:00pm in the main house. This is to assign makeup times for the models and a light dinner will be served for anyone who attends. Please inform us prior to the workshop if we can expect you to ensure we have the proper amount of food. Everyone has to be off location by 10:00pm so models can be well rested for the workshop.
Grab & go style breakfast will be provided for this day as shooting times are allowed to begin as early as 20 minutes prior to sunrise for private shoots only.
