Playboy cover model Serliana Rosida joins STC Flores 2017

00-serliana-cover

South East Asia is known for many beautiful things, and it came as no surprise that while photographer Aleš Bravničar photographed STC Model Serliana Rosida for Playboy during past STC seminar, that we needed an entire waterfall to cool things down.

Once more, STC attendees were able to witness the cover as it was photographed and soak up a perfect lesson from Aleš who proved that not all photography sets are as simple as they may seem.

Let’s hear from our recent Playboy cover model Serliana [Interview] as to how things came together. After all, Serliana is our second model choice for our upcoming Flores seminar taking place November 1 – 10, 2017.

Stunning Julia Logacheva Joins STC Flores 2017

We welcome a new striking 23-year-old Julia Logacheva as our first model choice for STC Flores 2017. Julia, who resides in Saint Petersburg, Russia, is an incredible talent with a high-level “hot” quality that makes most men go silly.

There was no doubt when casting new models for the seminar that we had found our first winner. Since Julia is a discovery, Jarmo Pohjaniemi decided to take a pre-seminar trip to Iceland and melt some ice caps with the hottest Russian import and get her prepared just for you.

Julia’s 36DD/24/32 measurements are as rare as winning the lottery. We believe US-Russian photographic relations will reach a new high and become stronger than ever before.

The real opportunity to photograph Julia is closing soon. It goes without saying that her popularity will soon catapult to stardom. The real question remains: are you going to be part of it?

Hensel campaign and seminar winner image shot during STC Santorini 2017 by attendee Ruzdi Ekenheim

Our accomplishments and experience in the industry have given us our educational edge and success.

We are internationally acclaimed photographers who have worked and still work for Playboy and have created some of the most talked about pictorials published worldwide.

Over the past decades, our collective work has been seen in almost every major publication, as well as in advertising campaigns and fine-art galleries.

No other seminar can currently match the published body of work that we bring to the table. Also, we remain top working photographers in the industry who travel the world and are part of building the brands of many high profile clients.

From day one, the STC project was meant to connect the dots for those photographers who are willing to follow our success and take their photography to the next level.

Our seminar attendees have the highest publishing rate of any other seminar in the industry. We don’t just offer you a weekend full of fun but an opportunity that can change your life.
And that, my friends, is what makes us different.

The STC Flores, Indonesia seminar is our most adventurous and exotic seminar ever. Do not wait and let your career opportunities pass you by while success is knocking at your door.

Shoot The Centerfold Seminar on Publishing

One of the very exciting bonus perks of STC seminars is that Playboy likes to pick up and share the STC seminar experiences by printing them on the glossy pages of their magazine.

Also, many STC attendees’ work has appeared in Playboy as Playmate pictorials, features, and even covers. Now, that is what we call well-deserved success.

A Phase One Camera, Image Editing, and Workflow Workshops Will Be Available

dave-gallagher2Based on popular demand, we have added a workflow and editing session day where you will learn image editing, color correction and how to achieve the look and feel seen in today’s publications and campaigns. Dave Gallagher from Capture Integration together with STC master photographers will show you the latest image trends and how they get made. There’s more to a picture than meets the eye. The understanding of different styles, ever-changing trends (and what to watch as the image styles change), and market differentiation play a significant role in professional publishing. 

Growth and wisdom are the essences at the STC seminars, and for your epic experience, we will have a variety of the latest Phase One XF camera bodies, and IQ3 digital backs for you to use along with every single Schneider Leaf Shutter lens made today. Dave Gallagher from Capture Integration will be present for workflow demonstrations and questions. Come and find out what the world’s best photography seminar is all about.

Bigger is Better
The XF Camera System is built using full-frame Medium Format sensors 2.5 times larger than the ones found in high-end DSLRs. Sensors this massive deliver a powerful combination of the highest possible resolution together with large, high dynamic range pixels and excellent wide angular response. The XF Camera System is quite literally the best of all worlds when it comes to digital image quality.

100MP resolution
The XF Camera System is available in multiple configurations, up to 100MP. Resolution this high delivers not only incredible detail but also provides creative flexibility, accommodating virtually any application requirement, be it print or digital.

Perfect 16 bit color
Balancing colors are equal parts art and science. Phase One has been working for over two decades to achieve perfection in colors across hardware and software, and the XF System is a direct reflection of that. You won’t find better color depth or rendering than with an XF Camera System.

15 stop dynamic range
Using large sensor technology, the XF Camera System delivers unparalleled dynamic range, retaining unmatched detail in both highlights and shadows. With the new and exclusive 100 megapixels imaging sensor, the XF Camera System provides extreme long exposures of up to 60 minutes across 50MP, 60MP, 80MP & 100MP configurations. A fantastic creative tool, used by many of the world’s leading photographers.

STC will travel near and far and have you photograph some of the most magnificent visuals the world has to offer. When we go, we choose the best possible locations world has to offer. Otherwise, we may as well stay home. Be unique; be different!

The Coconut Garden beach bungalows are limited and available on a first come/first serve basis. Do not wait for the last moment since we only have a total of eight cottages. Late comers will have stay in the hotel outside of the Coconut Garden compound.
