MODEL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Founder of Photoholidays / Event organizer / Professional model
„I have been working in modeling on international level since 2010. Within those years I got many opportunities to pose on workshops & photo events all around the world and met lot of interesting people. Some of them inspired me and others gave me examples of what to avoid.
I am positive, sociable and ambitious person who likes creativity and fun but also order, precise work and focus on detail. Thanks to combination of these things I love what I do and I always try to do the best I can.

„What once has started as a hobby has become an exciting full-time job. My field of action varies from elegant nude & glamour shoots to serious business photography to shooting gorgeous wedding days. I am aspiring and open-minded with a love for detail.
Priolite is a German, technology-oriented company founded with the objective of developing state-of-the-art strobes for professional photographers. A focal point of development is equipment based on the lithium-ion battery concept. Priolite caters to the trend of continuously increasing mobility by offering equipment which operates independently of the electrical outlet. Today’s photographers frequently work at alternating locations and without their own studio. This makes mobile, cordless, and easily transportable lights the perfect solution.
Located in Würzburg, Germany, Priolite was founded by Graduate Engineer Joachim Renschke together with his partner. All Priolite equipment is designed by experienced industrial designers and developed in Germany. At Priolite, the label “Made in Germany” means just that.
“We place great value on quality assurance. We intend to never be the reason for ruining an expensive shoot.”
Founder Joachim Renschke studied Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin, worked in Munich as a development manager in the IT sector, and managed the Company Hensel Studiotechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Würzburg from 1991 to 2008. The experience gained there in the field of studio technology, combined with his international contacts, are a guarantee of innovative products.
Priolite’s introduction of a Hot Sync line of strobes at 2014 Photokina moved the strobe industry forward yet again. This continued a trend begun with Priolite’s first Photokina in 2010 where the state-of-the-art battery powered monolights took the industry by storm.
“Our desire to create and innovate is powered by you – the professional photographer. You can be assured that you, as a client, will always get the service and support that matches the quality of our products.”

“I had a great time, got amazing pictures, and learned a lot during the PHOTOHOLIDAYS workshop. The locations were inspiring and the models were beautiful, very professional, and enjoyable to work with. I would highly recommend future workshops and I hope to attend myself as well!”
Jan Valeur_Denmark, Copenhagen
"Participating in PHOTOHOLIDAYS was a very positive experience. The organization was good and professional and so was the information level about the arrangement. Working in small groups with just 2-3 photographers made it widely possible to work individually with each model to create the optimal image results. The models were all attractive, positive and experienced, and the possibility to book additional, private shoots in advance with them was super. Highly recommended arrangement!"
Mark Joyce_UK, Isle of man
"The workshop in Brno was very well organized with interesting and varied locations for shooting with some excellent models. Good advice was always on hand - I certainly achieved my goal of learning more about lighting and came away with a renewed enthusiasm and many new ideas for future photography. Recommended."
Bruno Mostien_Belgium, Hoboken
“I will remember PHOTOHOLIDAYS as an opportunity to work with stunning models on different surprising locations, in private or together with a small bunch of photographers, sharing their skills, enjoying serious model photography.
The 4-day workshop was very well organized: a clear briefing, enough time to work with each model in different settings, coaching by professionals (PRIOLITE), delicious food and drinks in between the shooting, convenient transport to and from the locations, a nice wellness-hotel to stay.
The program Ivana prepared for this event surpassed my expectations. After the workshop I went home with just one question: When are we going to do this again?”
Roberto Döhring_Germany, Strausberg
„ PHOTOHOLIDAYS were quite an experience! Nice locations with various level of difficulty. It was possible to test out shooting in an illuminated studio as well as in dark wine cellar. Organizational-wise the PHOTOHOLIDAYS went well without any hitch. Come to PHOTOHOLIDAYS and enjoy yourselves. You will meet beautiful models and a perfect organizer - the gorgeous Ivana!“
