Join us at the already promising-to-be-epic 1-3 day event in March, 2020 at a stunning historic location just across the river from New York City. 


Having styled multiple elaborate shoots for Miss Aniela’s famous Fashion Shoot Experience (most notably in The Hamptons, Bel Air, Yonkers, and The Pines in New York), two advertising campaigns for NIKON,  Creative Live episode, and most recently, an advertising campaign for Cayman Islands Department of Tourism - all photographed and produced by Miss Aniela, in addition to styling countless fashion editorials, Leonid Gurevich is now producing, styling and hosting his own fashion photography events called FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY RETREATS WITH LEONID GUREVICH.  


The backdrop for our first Retreat is the majestic Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre - a palace-style movie theater built during the Roaring 20’s. Opened in 1929, it was one of the five Loew's Wonder Theatres, a series of flagship Loew's movie palaces in the New York City area:

Couture Overdose – all for you to shoot!

Each day will have six to seven models and 4 shooting periods/time slots, with photographers shooting in pairs with each model for an hour.

From securing the one-of-a-kind venue, to hiring teams of professional Hair stylists and Makeup artists, to beautiful models styled by Leonid Gurevich, to breakfasts and lunches – all the production and preparation is taken take of so that you can concentrate only on shooting your heart out! 


You will arrive on the set by 9:00 am, enjoy a light breakfast, meet the team, take a walk around the location, followed by a welcoming speech from the host Leonid Gurevich (while the models are getting hair and makeup done). 


You will then be split into pairs and brought to your first location point, where you will start shooting your first model.  There are three shooting sessions before lunch, that way you will have shot three models by lunch break (lunch is provided) after which, the models get touch-ups, and the shooting sessions resume.    


Sessions continue for another 3 hours, after which we take a group photo, pack up, and leave.  You will find a more detailed description in the file we provide you with upon signing up. You will also receive a PDF file with preview of the team, as well as photos of the models and the looks they will be wearing. 


Also, we are beyond thrilled to announce that the world renowned photographer Miss Aniela, (who, at this point is a dear friend, after all these magical years we’ve worked together) is joining us as our special guest!

This is not a workshop and not a master-class.  

No one will be telling you how to shoot. No one will be taking your valuable time away from shooting the models. You won't be learning about your camera or lighting - instead you will busy experiencing a full-scale, inspiration-packed fashion shoot.  You photograph the models the way you want, the way you see it, with your lighting, from your angle. 

It is an amazing opportunity for you to shoot fashion and art images with couture flair in opulent locations, without the hassle of having to put it together yourself, and without the huge budgets associated with it.  This is where you create the work you’ve always wanted to create AND get full commercial rights to use it the way you see fit.  


Your place will be secured once you pay the event price in full.

In the meantime, look at the images of the location and our preliminary moodboard showing roughly how I intend to style the models; take a look at our FAQ list, email us your interest in participation to initiate the reservation of your spot, or send us any questions you might have.

We cannot wait to create magic together with you in March!
