Pretty excited to announce that I am doing a first for me, we are putting on a Photography workshop. I have teamed up with Parktown Studios to put on an amazing workshop with some even more amazing people. First off, wait till you see the studio space – a 1700 square foot studio – 59ft long, 29ft wide, 25ft ceilings, 12×12 loading door at rear of studio.
We are gonna be running 2 lighting set ups with 4 amazing models that I have had the pleasure to shoot with prior. These four ladies are amazing and a lotta fun. Tamara, Alex, Brittany & Dina.
We are really fortunate to have Dina involved, Dina worked as a professional mode for 15 years in Japan and other places around the world as well, and she is now doing acting. Dina will be helping explain the dynamic relationship with model & photographer as well as helping the models and photographers get the pose they are looking for.
Each model will be getting their make up by professional make up artist Corey J. Stone and professional stylist Josee Martel will be getting everyone looking their best. As well, I’ll be hanging around showing up lighting modifiers, lighting, and who knows what else.
This will not be your everyday workshop. You need to have some experience, a DSLR (well, we can rent you one). These 4hrs is not for beginners, you will want to have some knowledge to get the most out of it. If need be, we even have gear you can rent: we have 2 Canon Cameras (7D and 5D), and lenses 24-70 f2.8 24-105 f4.0 70-200 f2.8.
I did forget to mention – yeah we are bring in a motorcycle for you to shoot from Hybrid Racing. Jonny Nitro will be bringing something sweet. So, you will get to shoot a motorcycle in studio with one of our amazing models – Alex, Tamara, Brittany, or Dina. We will have a head shot set up as well and we will have a white wall ready to go. You will get to see the set up for the actual photos on the poster. You will work with a 5ft Octobox, softboxes, strip lights, and more.
Bring your DSLR, be ready to shoot in manual, all lighting will be provided. You will be shooting.
Come and join us – only $85 bucks if you book before September 20th. It will be 4hrs on Monday September, 29th in the Parktown Studios from 6-10pm. We will have some other cool stuff going on as well.
A bit about the team brought together by Sean Sisk:

As well, working together on Pets with Personalities raising over $25 000 for local Ottawa charities.

Josee has been working with them for a bit now as a stylist, bringing the look of the shoot together.
