GLAM Rock Charity Fashion Photoshoot

Come join us in supporting our Children's Cancer Research fundraising program by participating in the Glam Rock Fashion Photo Shoot! This a great opportunity to build your portfolio and network with other in the industry!  We have volunteer groups that shoot hot fashion trends across the nation and our sponsors love the pictures, love the exposure, and want to get involved. They donate money for the events we hold, and in order to keep them giving, we have to continue to deliver amazing charity events such as this one!  This is a great opportunity to team up with local businesses to fund personalized Children's Cancer Research and give hope to kids who don't have promising treatment options.  What greater way to volunteer while doing what you love! Donations for this event will range between $25 - $45 in total. We'll be collecting $25.00 (per person) deposit via PayPal to reserve your spot, and support our charity fundraising program as well as to cover administrative costs (fees for space, & equipment). We will charge an additional donation fee at the door. Models: $10.00, Photographers: $20.00. It works similar to a walk for cancer, but only much more fun!

Fashion Definition:

Glam rock is what happens when a rock star crashes into a Hollywood glamour actress.  It's all about adding a bit of glitter and gleam to the dark edgy rocker styles.  We'll be highlighting glitter, sequins, spikes, and studs in this photo shoot so each outfit should incorporate at least one of those elements or a combination of it.  The color palette for this shoot is dark colors and metallics such as black, silver, gold, grays…with bursts of brightness and color such as white and bold color…perhaps neon yellow spiked heels, or a hot pink sequined clutch.  Really play up this style with accessories.  We want to see those sequined tops, jackets, dresses, and skirts.  We're looking for spiked and studded heals, wedges, and flats.  And of course we can't forget animal prints!  See the photos below for ideas on how to prepare your wardrobe.  Our wardrobe stylists are always available to help you put together the perfect outfit!

Models will also be asked to be prepared by choosing your wardrobe in advance and submitting photos of you wearing it to [masked] by Sunday February 20th 11:59 PM so that we can approve your wardrobe choices, or help you improve them.  This requirement is mandatory for your participation.

Who should attend:

  • Photographers
  • Models
  • Make Up Artists & Hair Stylists
  • Designers & Wardrobe Stylists
  • Volunteers to Assist with Wardrobe Changes, Holding Photography Equipment, ect.

*** All "guests" must create a brief profile and register themselves for this event so that they receive event updates first hand.

    Still amazes me how two people can take very similar shots at pretty much the same time, and have totally different end results...

    Excellent work Mike.
    Love the concepts...

    • Michael D.

      Thx, that's why I live art. Two people can view the same image and see and feel two completely different different things. The beauty in it is that neither interpretation is incorrect. :)

    This one was a unique one... i follow the rules of KISS - Keeping it Simple Silly..

    Victoria and Sabrina - i'm uploading the original pics now to my skydrive. I have Sabrina's email @ fashionable causes.. i will send them there...
    if you need me to send them to another address let me know.. I'll be able to keep them on the Skydrive probably a week.. it's about 2Gigs worth of photos.. didn't take that many this time.. if anyone has a Canon for sale... or knows of a discounted placed - my backup camera went to Photo heaven right after this shoot...
    I'm eyeballing the Canon T4i - would be nice to have that for the April Event.. it was an interesting day to say the least... But all in all.. I had a good time.. Smiling Dancing.. Freezing my fingers off. Cause that's what Chris' are supposed to do.. well not the freezing fingers part.. LOL

    Cheers..

    Hi everybody, the discs are done, but I am really sick and won't be able to mail them out today, as I said I would. I am really sorry. I will mail all the discs as soon as I can get out of the bed without getting dizzy.

    I mean yall took the cash

    • Victoria

      Ok I am going to respectfully ask that this debate/discussion/disagr­eement cease. I want to encourage positivity in this forum and everything else not conducive to promoting Children's Cancer Research and the spirit of artistic innovation supporting this such cause needs to be taken outside this group or dissolved all together. Only respect will be tolerated here going forward. Thanks everyone! :)

      2 · March 8, 2013

    • Victoria

      Everything we do supports this cause - donations, artistic collaborations, constructive critique to help grow our talent in the fashion & arts community, and even our interactions on these message boards for curious individuals who want to know our behind the scenes efforts. Name calling, cursing, and other forms of disrespect I have observed do not belong here because none of these things support CCR nor are they the example we want to set for the children we are reaching out to help. So if you had a bad experience because of someone else, I apologize and we are all human with different personalities and backgrounds. Please remember that you're supporting a cause bigger than you, & bigger than me, and that's something to be excited about! So lets shake it off and continue to find new ways that we can use our artistic skills to help a child defeat the uphill battle against cancer! I'm looking forward to planning the next event to be much better :)

    Love outdoor Photography. Was hoping to work on studio captures... But... didn't look to be in the cards that day.

    Looking forward to the next event.
    I'll be sure to bring my 'A' game.

    Victoria/Sabrina - where do I need to submit my originals. The edits have already hit and started buzz on FB and Model Mayhem
    I can upload to skydrive and send a link to an email address. Which is???

      Victoria, given enough time studio 223, Slyhourse, and depending on the total size, The Carriage house. There is also a large apartment complex in Baltimore that I know of.

      Space abound. Just let me know what you are looking for and I can put you in contact with the people you need to talk to.

    Hi everyone, we are really looking forward to this event tomorrow. Are you all ready? :)
    Please everybody be there on time! We will stop shooting at 2.30pm, because we have to be out by 3pm. The studio is in a residential neighborhood. The studio owner renovated his home into a commercial studio. There are usually parking possibilities on the street, and close to the house there is a parking lot. If you have any emergencies or you get lost and need to get in contact with us, please call[masked]

    Hey everyone, just in case you haven't had a chance to read the email, we changed the event location and bumped the start times up by 30 minutes. We hate last minute changes, but due to some unexpected things that were sprung on us after the initial booking of the original studio, we felt that it was in the best interest of our volunteers and the cause to switch to a studio that was a bit more accommodating. We're excited to work with Charm City Photography Studio, and would love your feedback after the event to see if this is place we'd like to use in the future again :)

      February 21, 2013

    • Sabrina

      I sent you the email. If possible, please be there at 12. or 11.50 if you want to be early. We want to keep things as organized as possible. At 11am we only want the MUA's, hair stylists and the models at the studio. :)

      February 22, 2013

  • Victoria

    Models!!! So I checked up on the progress of wardrobe approval and some of you seem like you still need help. Glam Rock is EVERYWHERE and its a look you can pull off cheap. I'm going to hit the mall Saturday evening, if any of you want help finding some statement pieces or accessories, you should let me know and you can join me. :)
