What is Group Shoots?
Group Shoots is an open house style shooting event for models and photographers. As a model, you'll have access to a collection of photographers where you can network, get pictures taken and collaborate with other event attendees. Models and photographers mingle freely through the event find folks to communicate and work with. Group Shoots is designed more like a social gathering rather than a highly scheduled, structured rotation event.
Is there a cost?
The cost to attend group shoots is $15 per participant. A participant is defined as someone who is modeling at the shoot (a parent accompanying a minor doesn't have to pay to attend). To streamline your check-in process (and because spots are limited) you'll want to pre-register.
Who can attend?
Group shoots is open to male and female models of all experience levels. The event is "family friendly", we welcome models from age 10 and up.
What do I Bring?
Models will want to bring:
- 5 to 6 outfits (all family-friendly styled clothes - no swimwear or lingerie please)
- Any hair/makeup supplies you might need for touch-ups (it's most efficient if arrive with hair/makeup done).
- Driver's License/Photo ID
- If you're under 18 you'll need a parent with you (parent must stay for the duration of the event).
- Any small hand-props or accessories you'd like to go with your outfits.
NOTE: There are private dressing room/changing areas for models to change outfits.
How do I get my pictures back?
Group Shoots uses Google Drive to get pictures between photographers and models. Each model will have a folder created for them and photographers will upload their pictures of you to that folder. You'll then be able to retrieve the images from Google Drive. This also eliminates the need to hand out personal contact information to photographers at the shoot.
Exchanging contact info?
To ensure a comfortable atmosphere for all attendees, and to avoid potential awkward situations, we've asked photographers to not ask models for their personal contact info during the event. If a photographer would like to work with a model again outside of a group shoot event we've instructed them to hand you their card and invite you to contact them. After that, it's up to you to connect with them should you choose to. Photographers not honoring this policy should be reported to event management immediately. We will ask them to leave the shoot.
Models should always exercise care and good diligence when setting up shoots with photographers. While Group Shoots does it's best to confirm the qualification of any event attendee; attendance at a Group Shoot event should not be construed as an endorsement or approval of an attendees professionalism or credentials. Group Shoots, DSC nor it's affiliates assume any liability for shoots booked outside of a Group Shoot event.
