I have organized another desination model shoot-out for our Charlotte PPG group, and realized that it is so close to Asheville that I should post the event in the Asheville Meetup group too. Sorry for the late announcement on this but if you are free today and would like to come out and photograph our models with us this evening, we have plenty of RSVP space. There is about 10 of us plus 4 models (and family of 4 is also coming to model) I will be deomonstrating some family posing ideas with them.
If you've not been to Lake Lure/ Chimney Rock area, this will be a great time for you to discover an awesome new place to photograph that is only a short drive from Asheville.
I am scheduling models for an eveing shoot in the Mountain stream that will begin around 6:00. We will meet first by the pool at this little grill and grab a bite to eat. This will enable evryone to find us and meet before driving a short distance to photograph. The last destination we did I found it difficult to get everybody to the same location and feel this will be much easier. So, you do not have to come at 4:30 but if you wish to be able to find us for the shoot, I'd suggest meeting us there before 6:00pm. We will be leaving the Grill at 6:00 to shoot for a couple hours. This location is gorgeous and the water and rocks will allow the models and photographers to keep cool also
The lighting is usually really great at this hour too. If you like to work with an external lighting, please feel free to bring it. As always, I will have reflectors and scrims, and am more than happy to demonstrate or teach anyone who asks how to use them.
Our "shoot-outs" are not meant to be as much of a class or teaching environment, as they are an opportunity for you to practice your portrait photography skills in a relaxed environment. I believe there is still a lot of learning that takes place at these events, not to mention, great new images to add to your portfolio.
If you have not had a chance to join our group yet at any of the shoots with models, these "shoot-out" events are a perfect 1st time event to attend. They are always a lot of fun and everyone works well with each other to collaborate and create great portraits. There is usually several more experienced photographers who are always willing to help you if you feel you need it.
This event is limited right now in RSVPs to only 20 of us to be sure the model to photographer ratio is good.
The agreement to the models is that each photographer will share one or two images with each model that you photograph. This is in exchange for their time. You may use all the images that you capture in your portfolios.
