Western Photo shoot and pot luck lunch on the farm

Western Photo shoot and pot luck lunch on the farm.

Western photo shoot and pot luck lunch. As the farm location is out of town and the Moody's have offered us the use of the farm I thought it would be a fun idea to combine photo shoot and a get to know you pot luck lunch. We will meet up at Starbucks then we can carpool out to the farm. Models FREE Photographers $10.00 Bring a cold pot luck lunch item I have the plates etc. At this time I have the models doing the shoot for TFP. The $10.00 is for lunch extras and to get a gift for the Moody's the farm owners. The farm has a red barn,cabin, house with wraparound balcony, old rusty Chev truck creek, and more. At this time I have a handful of models and have a call out for more so we should have a good ratio of photographers to models. IF your not into taking photos of models and just looking for a good pot luck lunch thats OK 

POST IF YOU CAN DRIVE OR NEED A RIDE

    For myself I actually did not have a great time at the meetup. The organizer was great, the setting was good, and was nice to see some of the other members of the club. However, I walked away with very few images and did not get to shoot much because of others monopolizing time with models. And I did not get an opportunity to shoot in various scenarios. Really disappointed. Think it need to be made clear to people at the start to be respectful of other members and not be so selfish and inconsiderate.

      Dean this was your first time organizing a model shoot for the group and I would say that we all think you did a fantastic job. Fantastic location, wonderful hosts, great models and lots of talented photographers. You just have to live and learn from the mistakes. Try to keep a low photographer to model ratio (max I would go is 3:1), that way each photographer gets plenty of time with the model and, in case some models can't make it, you will not have photographers with no models. Also, I find 30-40 minutes will provide each groups enough time to get their shots.

      I agree with Earl's comments. Thanks for organizing and setting up the shoot! I had a great time!

    Dean no apology necessary. You put on a good event, which I am sure would be popular with the group if done again. Only so much you can do. Will send you an email offline later today.

    It was an amazing day and well worth the weekend trip from Edmonton to participate and meet people! I got some great shots, but unfortunately won't be near my editing computer until September long now.

    How would you like us to go about getting the model's photo files to them?

      But it is easy to get to and I can print off a map if needed as GPS gets you close but to the door. We will do a convoy stopping at key points so we can stay in a group.
