The Last Hurrah
Creative Concept Studios’ has graciously decided to open its doors to us and have one final Open House Meet and Greet. If by chance you hadn't heard the news yet, Creative Concept Studios' will be closing their doors at the end of the month in pursuit of other endeavors.
Our Meet and Greet events have turned into spectacular fun filled evenings with a mixture of regulars and fresh new faces each month. These events have become some of my favorite and most memorable meet up events that I have had the privilege of attending.
As the studio will be well into its final decommissioning process we will have plenty of space to move around and shoot. We will have at least two sets available for shooting.
Update 4/23/2012: Melissa, Cheyenne, Ursula, Jinger Snap and Jessica will all be honoring us as models for the evening. Please note that the props you are use to seeing around the studio may or may not still be available. If you would like to bring props to use, please feel free.
Update 4/19/2012: We will also have the great pleasure of meeting Rebellious Makeup, a fantastic artist in her own right who will be traveling all the way up here from Austin. I can't wait to see how fantastic our models are going to look.
Update 4/23/2012: Found out today the super talented MUAH Ashley Rihel will be joining us for the evening. We had the great pleasure of working with her earlier this week for the Marionette shoot.
Sam, owner of Sammy Shears, has also confirmed that he will be providing his wicked hair styling skills for the evening.
Update 4/19/2012: The models and makeup artists coming to this event would very much like to get some great shots for their portfolios and as always we will be getting some great shots for ours. But I feel I must warn that some outfits, makeup, themes, etc might be considered objectionable to what some might be comfortable with. In the past our Meet and Greet events have always been family friendly, this month I would probably suggest restricting it to 18+.
Can I bring a guest? Yes, but we encourage group members to keep guests to industry related people and we ask that you limit guests to 1.
Yea, I'm excited! So where and when is it? We'll be meeting from 7-10pm at Creative Concept Studios, which is located at 3215 Rufe Snow Drive Richland Hills, TX 76118.
This event is NOT a shoot-out. With the Meet and Greet, shooting is completely optional. Come out, mingle, talk and get to know the photographers, models and stylists in the area. It's a NO-PRESSURE environment meant to encourage everyone to have fun while getting their work seen by more of the local community. As such, it would be a very good idea to bring portfolio, prints, contact sheets, etc.
Open Studio/Open Casual Shooting Guidelines:
**Studio is open to those who wish to model/photograph in a group/collaborative format.
**No formal sets or styling are provided - standard photo backdrops are set up with studio lighting gear available for use.
**Each photographer is responsible to exchange contact information with anyone she/he shoots, and to provide images directly to the model(s) and/or Make Up Artists after the event. The studio is NOT a go-between for providing contact information and forwarding images from photographers to models after the event.
**Model releases are negotiable directly between parties shooting together during the event. Models, if you plan to shoot, please be willing to sign a promotional-use model release for each photographer. It is at the discretion of the model as to whether to sign any commercial-use release for images shot at Open House.
