Sun Studios Lighting workshop for Assistants

Best be quick on this one...


Sun Studios would like to invite interested assistants and emerging photographers to a free lighting workshop. The workshop will be held by the photographer Sam Borich, and will explore what to do when you're given a big brief but only a small budget. Sam will show you tricks on how to get similar results to more expensive lighting set-ups with much cheaper materials. We'll look at ways to get several different looks out of just one expensive light. We'll also explore the advantages and disadvantages of using just one pack and three heads versus several Monoblocks. We'll also give you an idea of how much everything being used would cost to hire so that you can budget for future shoots.

The workshop will be held on the 6th of July 2009 at Sun Studios. It will start at 10am and will run for a couple of hours.

The first twelve responses will reserve a space. If you can't make it to this one, don't worry as we will hold more!


Feel free to forward this e-mail onto anyone you think may be interested.

Many thanks,

Jetstar Photocomp

Check the website for details.
Apparently the ACMP played a very active role in defining the terms and conditions so photographers weren't taken advantage of.
Plenty of time to go to Hawaii, shoot that killer shot then come back, submit it and win a $5000 dollar jetstar travel voucher, what could be simpler...?
