PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION DAYS
WILLY WONKA v JACK SPARROW
FRIDAY 24th SEPTEMBER 2021
Our Classics Series of Session Days Events continues with this nod to two more iconic characters from the movies. Featuring Jack Cutler as Willy Wonka and Kiefer Rusowicz as Jack Sparrow, we will be combining classical portraiture in studio with on location sets in and around the mill in Manchester, giving you the opportunity to take and make some great images for your portfolio.
This event is being held on Friday 24th September 2021. Morning slots start at 9:15 AM and finish at 13:00 PM and afternoon slots start at 14:00 PM and finish at 17:45 PM .
This event will take place at AWOL Studios in Manchester where we will be using two separate studios and the Mill space for a combination of portraiture and characters in action sequences.
The event features two professional character models and there are ten places for photographers in the morning and another ten places for photographers in the afternoon. Attendees will work in groups of five with each model in turn for approximately one and half hours.
The price to attend this event per photographer is :

MEET THE MODELS
JACK CUTLER as WILLY WONKA
Having previously featured for us as Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd and Mad Hatter, Jack now takes on the role of Willy Wonka from the Chocolate Factory.
KIEFER RUSOWICZ as JACK SPARROW
Kiefer is a professional cosplayer and a master of his craft. Having appeared for us already as Gears of War and The Witcher, he joins us in studio to perform as the iconic Depp character, Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This event is an opportunity for you as photographer to work closely with each model. You will be working with the Joker in a group of five photographers for an hour and a half both in studio and around the mill before then swapping over to work with Harley under similar circumstances. We will be using two studio spaces in the mill for classic portraiture and then around the mill for action and more dynamic poses.
Lighting equipment will be provided in each studio for use during both sets. The use of equipment is included within your admission price. On each set we will be designing a lighting setup to suit the character. Lights will either be continuous lights or studio/strobe lighting with triggers and modifiers for your use. If you require assistance using the lights provided then we will be on hand to provide expertise.
We are a COVID-19 responsible organisation and will be taking and making all necessary arrangements to observe guidelines and to ensure safety wherever possible. All attendees will be required to bring their own masks to wear if wishing to wear one.
There will be hand sanitisers on each set for your usage and anti-bacterial wipes will be required when handing over triggers for lights. You will be required to maintain safe distancing guidelines at all times and you will not be able to handle props on any set.
There will be no refreshment facilities for tea/coffee provided on the event, you must bring your own for safety reasons.
