Our Best and Boldest International Photography Publishing Seminar ever.

We are happy to announce that we have SOLD-OUT our popular STC Santorini 2017 seminar. However, if you passed up the opportunity to reserve your seat and regret doing so, send us an email, and we will add you to the waiting list in case of possible cancellations.

Shoot The Centerfold brings you Santorini as you have never seen it before. The Greek island of Santorini is the ultimate photography location for photographers and their beautiful subjects. It’s in this beautiful paradise that you will experience wonders found nowhere else in the world. Santorini is the real gateway to the heart of any photographer and editor.

The most beautiful landscapes and photography locations cover 1/10 of the world. Shoot The Centerfold has brought you to some of these beautiful places in the past six years.

In addition to our highly popular yearly Miami STC mega seminar, we have now introduced the STC boutique workshops where you can travel with a small selected group of like-minded photographers who seek the next level of publishing outside of their comfort zone. And, publishing is what we have brought to you. Each seminar has produced Playboy playmates, features, advertisements and campaigns for major companies. These small workshops offer personalized bonding, educational experiences and follow ups from the STC master photographers.

Having a model like Kseniya in front of your camera is truly a lifetime opportunity. Now, it’s up to you, the photographer, to capture the beauty Kseniya has to offer. We have set clear goals for Santorini 2017 as far as quality models and photography goes.

Guess supermodel Kseniya Belousova is joining STC’s May 1-10, 2017 Santorini workshop. Kseniya fell in love with Shoot The Centerfold while in Bali on her first STC rodeo.

Love was mutual from all directions, colors, and continents, and now the Aegean gods and the signs of thunder bring her to STC Santorini 2017.

It is not often that you get to work with the caliber of a model like Kseniya. You’ve likely seen her featured on billboards, campaigns, catalogs, in-store posters, and some of the most prestigious brands’ advertisements imaginable.

Kseniya, who grew up in Russia, joined a beauty contest at the tender age of 16 and was crowned Miss Tyumen. She immediately fell in love with modeling and believed that her destiny would be bigger modeling markets, and she was right! Kseniya now travels all over the world shooting top modeling jobs which include companies such as Dolcessa Swimwear, La Perla, and Guess, just to mention a few.

All of the outstanding models we are bringing to Santorini are handpicked so be sure to bring a fresh mindset and a new pair of eyes!

The New Super Star Zienna Eve Joins STC Santorini 2017

Let the Santorini days and nights begin with our very own sizzling HOT model Zienna Eve, who originally comes from the small town of Bornholm, Denmark. Zienna initially arrived in Miami just a few years ago with the wishes of doing some modeling.

And, modeling is what Zienna has done, in a major way! From her start as a Shoot The Centerfold model to bringing Miami’s top modeling agencies to their knees and then ending up in Paul Marciano’s Guess catalogs and books as a model, her accomplishments are any model’s dream come true in a big way.

We at the Shoot The Centerfold are very proud of Zienna and her achievements and take credit for her success. In return, Zienna remains loyal to those who paved a path for her, and she remains an exclusive Shoot The Centerfold model.

We like to believe that her career has only just begun and there is much more to come. Join the incredible new Zienna and her her voluptuous curves, unusually slim waistline and overly buxom appearance in Santorini in May 2017 and be part of her success, photographically speaking.

How We Are Different

irina-fine-art-568

Our accomplishments and experience in the industry have granted 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 published 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 Santorini seminar is our fastest selling seminar ever. Do not wait and let your career opportunities pass by you 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.

Why Santorini Is the Ultimate Dream Destination for Photographers

(and Why are we returning to Santorini?)

There are very few places in the world where architectural elements play a role as significant as they do in Santorini, Greece. Wherever you look, you see perfect backgrounds and settings for any photography. It seems as if every single building was built with photography in mind. The legendary Greek style offers the most photography-friendly locations anywhere in the world when comparing aesthetics, variety, and choices. White, blue, yellow and the ocean with mountain backgrounds creates a mind-blowing masterpiece found nowhere else. It’s no wonder that Santorini has become the largest wedding photographer and catalog photo destination in the world. There’s so much to choose from and never enough time to capture everything.

We are returning to Santorini on your and our clients request. Since we are content providers for the publishing industry, it’s a no-brainer since Santorini’s photogenic and beautiful elements play a such a significant role in publishing houses across the globe.

Priceless Experience

Your dream for us to host a limited edition seminar has finally become a reality. We will be hard at work teaching photography, as well as a little bit of Greek mythology for good measure. One of the most memorable moments from our past Santorini trip were not only the pictorials now seen in major print campaigns and Playboy but mostly the private bonding moments with the crew and models. Sitting on the porch while editing the daily images, enjoying fantastic local drinks and food, watching that surreal sunset, while getting a chance to get to know everyone better, created memories to last a lifetime. See highlights from our past Santorini seminar here.
