Viewfinder Center - Studio & Model Jam - May 18

On May 18th, Viewfinder will host a "Studio Jam" at our neighboring photo studio in Winterthur. We are pleased to welcome back our star model - Sira Topic (who worked with us on the fashion photography workshop in April) for more fun and creative collaboration. To check out more of her work, visit the Viewfinder blog (fashion workshop) and www.siratopic.com.

Because there are costs associated with renting a professional photo studio and paying a professional model - this will be a paid Meetup Event, with each photographer contributing Fr. 55.- for their participation.

We'll do two sessions: one indoor studio shoot and (weather permitting) one outdoor shoot at a nearby urban location - (both shoots with Sira). Each photographer will have two 7 minute blocks of time in both the indoor and outdoor scenarios - during which he/she is the lead photographer. While the lead photographer is shooting, we will have a secondary photographer shooting from a non-interfering position. This will allow each of the 8 participants a full hour (in total) of active shooting time during the 4 hour-long Studio Jam.

Matt will assist with the lighting setup and provide a bit of coaching if requested, but otherwise - bring your creativity and just go for it! Sira is a ton of fun to shoot with and will bring her usual energetic self and posing expertise.

Because this Meetup is being limited to 8 participants - space will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Payment must be made in advance to Viewfinder's business account or Paypal account to reserve a space. Please email Matt immediately after making a payment so that we can keep track of attendance.

Please send Fr. 55.- to:

PhotoWorks 312 GmbH
Else Züblin-Strasse 115
8404 Winterthur

IBAN: CH[masked] 2201 N

or via Paypal: ([masked])

Location:
Viewfinder Center for Photography
Else Züblin-Strasse 115
8404 Winterthur

Equipment:
The studio has all of the necessary lighting equipment. You are responsible for bringing your own camera equipment. We would prefer that you not bring a tripod or any studio lighting equipment (for space reasons). A couple of lenses and an SLR camera body with a PC sync port (for plugging in a studio strobe to your camera) or a hot-shoe for attaching a Pocket Wizard - is really all you'll need. The Jam will wrap up at 18:00 and we'll likely grab a drink across the street at Gerry's Bar afterward - for those who are interested.

We look forward to seeing you there!

    Thanks Matt for organizing - it was a lot of fun! Thanks Sira for working so hard for us, and keeping up such a great energy the entire time. So nice to meet you all!

    Thanks for coming out gang! A special thank you to our lovely model Sira Topic! Merci!

    Hi Gang - All the spaces have been booked and paid for at this point. Sorry it was a little hectic with the RSVP setup. Next time we will run this through the Viewfinder site which is much better equipped to take payments and manage the availability of tickets.

  • Matt A.

    Hey Gang, if you have RSVP'd but not yet paid for a spot in the Studio Jam, I would kindly ask that you remove your RSVP so that others may join. Several people are inquiring about available spaces and at this point I have received payments from the following people: Sandro, Joao, Jeremy, Hoai, Elaine and Mark. Two open spots remain.

    There are a few people on the RSVP list, who have yet to pay via the details above. I'll have to remove those RSVPs tomorrow to make room for others who are confused about the status of available spaces. Please don't be offended if I remove your name. If, in the meantime, you make a payment via online banking or Paypal - then please feel free to re-RSVP so we have an accurate account of whose attending.

    Thanks in advance!
    -Matt

      Hi Peyuco, I'm really sorry to dissapoint you, but the spaces have all been booked. I've not yet received your payment, but I'll if it comes in tomorrow - I'll send it back to you right away.

    Hi - I see that you already have 8 people - is there a cancellation list or anything? I would love to join you if it is at all possible. Thanks a lot,
    Tanya

      Hi Tanya, there's still space available. The first people to pay are in. We've sold four spaces so far.

    I think there is a mistake in the calculation of minutes per person, actual time is only 30 minutes.....either way the result is the same!!! Cheers:)

    May 9, 2013

    • Matt A.

      Hi Dee, the math is correct. Each photographer get's an hour of shooting with the model (in total). Half of that time is you're "primary photographer" time and half of that time is your "secondary photographer" time.

  • David

    Hi there, I also would like to be placed on the wait list, if possible. Cheers.

    May 12, 2013

    • Matt A.

      Hi David, we won't be doing a waiting list. It's simply first-come, first-served.

      May 14, 2013

  • Matt A.

    So far I have received payments from Eliane, Hoai, Mark and Jeremy. That leaves four spots open for the Studio Jam. Payment must be received in advance to hold your space. I'll check my accounts again on Wednesday and post an update on the availability situation.

    Thanks!

    May 8, 2013

      Absolutely! Look forward to seeing you Mark!

  • Dee

    Can you please post a pic of the model for the shooting? Thanks

    May 8, 2013
