STC Santorini 2018

October 24-31, 2018 – Santorini, Greece

Our Finest International Seminar Returns with an All-New Program!

The Greek island of Santorini is the ultimate location for photographers and videographers. It’s in this beautiful paradise that you will experience wonders found nowhere else in the world. Santorini is the ultimate gateway to the heart of any photographer, editor, and art director.

We have brought you to Santorini now for the past six years, have produced images for publications and commercial campaigns, have eaten Greek delicacies, and discovered new-found talent while bonding among photographers and friends.

Welcome to our STC “Boutique Workshops”, where you can travel with a small select group of like-minded photographers who seek to search outside of their comfort zone and discover the next level of publishing in a more intimate setting. And, publishing is what we have delivered 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.

How We Are Different

IMG_4577

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.

 

Latoya-568Discover Your Style

This time around we will raise the bar higher than ever by focusing more on the look, style, and feel of the image in addition to the photography technicalities. The four most critical elements of a successful image are:

  1. Model
  2. Lighting
  3. Wardrobe
  4. Style/look/feel

To fully understand the real potential of a successful image and current trend which starts with having the right mindset and a solid plan for exhibiting what are you trying to say with your photos. Our specialty of visual expression surpasses many editorial expectations.

There is nothing more important than carefully planned pre-production regardless how simple or challenging the job may be. Exhibiting light, shadow, and style is the backbone of success. With its beautiful white walls, Santorini offerers more visual variety and shooting locations than any other place in the world.

No wonder Santorini ranks so high in the client and the editorial world. The choice to return to Santorini is not to duplicate the past, but to define your future.

Why Santorini Is the Ultimate Dream Destination for Photographers

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 client’s request. Since we are content providers for the publishing industry, it’s a no-brainer because Santorini’s photogenic and beautiful elements play a such a significant role in publishing houses across the globe.

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.

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 was not only the pictorials now seen in major print campaigns and Playboy but mostly the private bonding moments with the crew members and models. Sitting on the porch while editing the daily images, enjoying fantastic local drinks and food, watching the surreal sunset, while getting a chance to get to know everyone better and create memories to last a lifetime.
