    Does anyone have a wall street journal they can bring? They don't publish on Sundays and I forgot to pick one up yesterday. I have the new York times

    Just added an image to the listing above of some props I had printed up and mounted for models to hold, have on tables or have on an easel.

    Catherine will there be an MUA at Sundays shoot .. daniella is asking thanks :-)

    • Catherine M.

      of course she would get photos for her port and what I reccomend is that she create a profile and offer her services. Usually people tip between $10-20 for a look (if she does hair too) we dont have an extra budget for mua for this shoot but we do have opportunities for the next shoot! Also it gives her exposure to photographers that often hire mua's they meet at our shoot

      January 18, 2013

    • Allen F.

      If getting professional shots for her portfolio is important to her....she'll be glad she worked with us!

    Hey Cat! Excited about this shoot. What kind of office building is this in? Is it period? What sort of access do we have to the offices? What sort of props do you think we'll have to work with? Thanks. Just trying to plan out some potential shots. :)

    When you RSVP and "bring a friend" please let me know in the comments if that person is planning to model, an assistant etc....NOT a lot of extra space on this shoot, so please be aware we reccomend leaving friends at home so they wont get in the way or get bored

  • Loise L.

    We will have aprox 12-13 Female Models and 3-4 Males, we currently have 9 photographers rsvp'd. Photographers, please pay by pay pal ahead of the shoot. I have a key card to give us access to the building. You can park in the IKEA lot and meet me in the front of the building, If you are late, there is no way to open the door without someone coming down from the 5th floor to get you! We take the elevators to the 5 th floor, go to the left and the suite is at the end of the Hall! So excited to see all my Mad Men and Women!! My phone #[masked]

    This office has two corner offices with windows, a main confrence room with tables, a reception area, a stockroom and kitchen area. I will also ask some of the salesmen tomorrow if they would like to participate as there are quite a few men work in this office. I will be bringing a tray with crystal decanters, rocks glasses, martini glasses etc because they always seemed to drink at work in this era. I will also have fake cigarettes. I have some wardrobe so please let me know (both men and women) if there is anything you need (I have men's hats!)
