Hey, y’all.

In the interest of cleaning up the previous thread a bit we’re starting a new one here. If you are looking for the previous thread, you can find it here. It contains lots of information about lots of stuff, including the workshop itself, accommodations, things to do in Calgary, who’s coming etc. It also contains a bunch of nonsense and rambling too, so if you’re into that kind of thing, go read it.

The short version: On July 5th 31_F.gif Shecoya and I are hosting this year’s installment of the European nude/glamour workshop the 21.gif kiwiness, 31_F.gif Anastasia, and 21.gif azrifel have hosted in previous years. It’s a one-day workshop (July 5th) followed by a one-day GTG (july 6th) in Calgary, AB, Canada. I’ll be posting a more detailed itinerary soon, but for now it’s safe to assume we’re going to be covering topics such as studio lighting, Photoshop/post-processing techniques, finding and using natural light, photo shoot styling and makeup, working with and directing models, the business of being a photographer, and more. The lineup of presenters is as follows:

21.gif kiwiness
31_F.gif Anastasia
31.gif Joey Lawrence
31_F.gif Shecoya
21.gif Pedro
Rene Menendez (makeup artist)

We’re still waiting on confirmation on a few others based on solidifying travel arrangements and schedules. Yes, Mr. 21.gif Librodo is still on that list, but as yet he hasn’t confirmed whether or not he can resolve a scheduling conflict (you listening Manny? Get on it, Pare ;) ).

Below is a list of confirmed attendees. If you’re confirmed and I’ve missed you, please PM me and I’ll add your name to the list. We also have a very long list of parties who are interested and say they’re coming, but have yet to confirm. For now we’re keeping it limited to DPC members and their friends/family, but if I don’t have confirmation by mid-June (let’s say the 15th for the sake of being definitive) we’ll open it up to outsiders as well. Several from outside our community have expressed interest, but we’ll keep it amongst ourselves for the time being.

Have a look through their portfolios – you’ll see a wide range of experience, from noobs to professionals. Don’t worry about what your current skill level is – there’s something to be learned by everyone from the presenters and participants alike.

The cost is $200 Canadian (cheap by industry standards) and includes the full-day workshop, snacks/beverages, and lunch. We prefer cheques (or ‘checks’ for those of you in the US ;)), but will also accept PayPal for those who need it (payable to peter_marlin(at)hotmail.com). If you’re having trouble with either of those methods, PM Roz or myself and we’ll work something out.

I’ll be posting links to some of the models that will be in attendance shortly. Suffice it to say we’ll have lots of talent there to work with. At this point I have commitments from ten models, and expect there to be closer to 15 or 20 by the time all is said and done.

That’s it for now. Looking forward to meeting the new people and seeing old friends from previous years :)
