Shoot The Centerfold boutique seminars not only produce commercial content and pictorials for Playboy. We have also successfully entered the high-end fine-art arena where the most prestigious photographic elements speak for themselves.
When art and high-end marketplace come together, it’s considered one of the most admirable honor in any photography achievement and highly validates your photography profile.
In 2015 during the Shoot The Centerfold Santorini seminar we introduced a setting for our attendees to photograph a world famous artist, performer Irina Kazakova, on a cliff with a mesmerizing view while the sun was smiling upon us from the blue sky.
There were no words which could have described the beauty in front of my eyes. My only wish was that one of the photographing attendees would capture the magical shot which would become one to be remembered.
At the moment it was nothing more than a wish that lighting gods and shutter clicks would synchronize, and they did. In the end, one of the shots photographed by an STC attendee Juhani Väihkönen stood out as a winner.
“There was no question about the winning shot. We did not have to look for it while editing the images; it was looking at us”There was no question about the winning shot. We did not have to look for it while editing the images; it was looking at us.
There was more to this picture than meets the eye. Now two years later, some of the world most prestigious fine-art galleries have taken notice, and there is more to come to this story if it’s a hit or simply just a lucky shot.
We don’t believe in luck, we believe in hard/smart work and create opportunities for our attendees and followers. Join us to STC Santorini in May 2017, come and create your masterpieces.
