    If we wanted to do the classic shoot, first we need a good location where we have permission to shoot - preferably with the owner/renter there. As Fidel said, it'd be hard to make it be different than every other "strobist" shoot - in my opinion with or without real models. This option would require many resources: location, models/mannequins, lighting, right time of day, etc. The other option (one I prefer) is to stick with the original idea of having mannequins and be renegades and go around town. If we can find a few, I think that's half the battle and we can just hit the town with it. While I was in Dallas last month, I saw something similar to what we could do, but this was an art exhibit http://www.flickr.com/photos/coogie/8693924611/lightbox/

    Stephanie Kelley is a model I have worked with. Knows what she's doing.

    If a good private location can be secured, I say use real models rather than "wasting" it on mannequins. I would be happy to co-feature the event in the Shabby Chic Models and Photographers group in order to recruit models.

    This was posted around May 10, 2012 so it has been up for 1 year and 1 month and I would REALLY LIKE TO DO THIS BEFORE I DIE. I'm going to be 74 pretty soon so lets get it together and do it.....

      modelmayhem? never heard of it. Will they do free or trades for photos or what? TY

    • Arie M.

      I've done some fun projects on there in the past but it's like everything else. The more legit you are the less likely people will flake. I havent done any shoots off there lately so maybe they've changed.

      NO PROBLEM ON THE POLICE CAR.... Let's have a meet up and talk about it... I thought it would be interesting to have Mannequins Standing Outside a Store display window withe all the Photographers inside the window with their cameras.

  • Gary S.

    Anybody want to step to the plate as host of this meetup? Seems like a few are interested. I will be glad to help out some. We can plan it for when Aubrey returns to houston.

    October 3, 2012

  • Gary S.

    Who is interested in making this happen? It is up to us - so let's get a few together and work out the logistics and details & present it to the group.

    September 27, 2012

  • Aubrey H.

    HOPE it is not between Sept 28 - Oct 28 I will not be here.... I bought a mannequin and don't want to miss this event

  • Bill M.

    I'm interested. Let's do it!

    September 14, 2012

    • Gary S.

      Cool Bill - Thanks for your interest. Pretty sure Noe is up for it too. Steve Young too I believe- supposed to see him tonite at SRO- Will get with them (& you) to see about a date that will work - Any body else interested please let us know. Got a location in mind too.

      September 14, 2012

  • Gary S.

    Any body interested in getting this meeting to finally happen? As mentioned earler- I have 2 (partial) female mannequins - front only from neck to upper thighs w/ hanger at top- flat black color- They can be dressed and hung
    ( 2 styrofoam heads could be easily added too if we can find em)
    I also have a hi quality 7 ft tall Harlem Globetrotter cardboard cutout- very realistic looking that would be a cool prop. Anybody else have anything cool for props- I can bring some musical instruments too. There is a lot of Highway construction right near me on 610 at 290- We could prob use some areas that are closed to traffic - with or without the workers around. Depends on what others think ( or I may just grab a partner and give it a shot to show 5-10 photos as a kind of DEMO.)

    September 13, 2012

  • Gary S.

    Yes Steve - All systems go. We had a nice little meetup on Sunday in Old Town Spring. Have not posted pics yet. Not sure of the fate of the mannequin Madness shoot- Last I heard we may revive it- but the plan is to have all details straight before we post the meetup. Think I got it right- If you have any questions or ideas- shoot Mark Richter an email. That part- I know is right.
