Milk Workshop in Lucerne, SWITZERLAND 12-13 October 2013

Hey everyone!

I am very pleased to announce this year’s last European edition of the Milk Workshop in Lucerne Switzerland in 12-13 October 2013.
Just before our departure to Australia!

Recently we received a very kind invitation from our friend Pirmin Zimmermann who has just opened his new Atelier in Lucerne and has asked us to run an opening show there.
I am very happy to do that as this will be our First Workshop in Switzerland!

This Premium Milk Workshop has a limited number of spots so if you would like to book your seat please Click Here for the Booking Page!
[ We now have just 9 left! ]

A full agenda can be found on the Workshop Details Page.
You will get chance to make your own liquid illustration exactly the same way we did in our recently awarded Black series:


.

It is a full Hands-On 2 day workshop!
Where the first day is open with an overview presentation, covering “know how”, tools, lighting and demo shoot and then later take over by the participants working with a two model. And the second day – all about the post production process!


.

It is also very exciting for me as we will shoot in Switzerland the last instalment for the MILKY PIN-UP Calendar 2014 !
We just need a ‘November Girl’ and the calendar will be done and available hopefully the following month!


.

P.S. Australia – Thank you to everyone who subscribed to the workshop newsletter! We are in the process of securing the studios in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and I will blog all the details in the next couple weeks.
If you would like to receive an advance notice about the booking the Australian Milk Workshop, please email us at workshops@aurumlight.com and we’ll get back to you when all details are confirmed.

Thank you and hopefully see you there
Jaroslav

Milk Workshops Australia 2011 – Summary

So we did a splash in Oz !

What a great finish to 2011, indeed!
After a couple of weeks of preparation, and Jeff’s great effort at the other end we managed to organise two amazing events in Melbourne and Sydney.

We left cloudy London and was welcomed by sunny Melbourne and around 20 degrees more generous weather than in Europe at the time.
My sneaky plan to cheat the jet lag was almost 100% successful, almost screwed by Singapore a plane incident but even with that delay I adjusted so quickly that I didn’t feel that time difference almost at all!

 

Australia!
Man if that would be a Travel Photo Blog I would have plenty of great stories to tell, but it is not, so I will just quickly mention the amazing people and unique nature really making that part of the world special.

Getting back to the main topic – regular readers know the drill, though!
I always run two full demo shoots and then participants are taking over!

… using approach from our Silver Angel Illustration, we undressed Kaye from the Milky Gown!

So how was it:

Day 1 – Lots of Milk throwing, crazy concepts , hyped participants, two awesome models and great crew!
8h hours of pure creativity and hard work, there was as always a lot of one-2-one time and as usual we were finishing before the scheduled time.
You might expect that when you are done, you will get quite a lot of questions, chit chats etc..
But I tell you this – after all that, everyone was excited but tired as a racing horse…

So very outnumbered we went for a cool dinner and then we took off to prepare DVD’s with the materials for the equally intense Day 2!

Day 2 – Those who had 8hours sleep were the lucky ones as that was a mind bending day!

I always stress about the different conceptual part of the workshop from the know-how bit!
You are always forced to work hard while working with the liquid – using or not our workflow and formulas… but what I always hope is that I managed to send the info across the room that the special magic is happening before you entered the studio!

I showed how I work, I was transparent as possible on how I develop my concepts and working with my team!
But foremost I trust I was inspiring!

 

Last but not least I would love to thank those few who made all that possible:

To Jeff Paine from Shutterclass Studio – who put in all that a lot hours of great work and organised the whole Australia venture!
If you are around Victoria and you are after a great studio Jeff is your man! Cheers for all that.

To Colin Smith and the team at Paul C Buff Australia – for providing great gear for both events with my favourites Einsteins E640 and for great discount vouchers to all participants for all PCB equipment! Much appreciated!

To our great models and makeup artist – it wouldn’t be possible without your extra effort.
To all participants for your amazing attitude an willingness to make cool stuff!

And last but not least to Ola who made my whole trip run so smooth – organising all the flights and connections so I was never late and fully equipped!
I would go astray without you! For sure!

 

We have also some BTS material to show you – Melbourne + Sydney:
