Price: $10.00 per photographer.
Lets dust off our medium format equipment and photograph some models!
Whether you shoot with a Holga, Diana, Mamiya, or Hasselblad, all medium format shooters are welcome to join in on this shoot!
There is a $10 per photographer charge to cover the makeup kit expenses for the MUA (Make Up Artist).
I will be providing portable strobe lighting in the form of Norman 200B units and all day battery power. Also umbrellas, grids and light stands.
I will also provide PT-04 radio triggers for photographers to use during this shoot. Please note that these are cheap but reliable radio units, if you want to bring your own triggers, feel free to! Or if anyone has optical slaves, please bring them!
In order to use the provided lighting, cameras must be equipped with either a “PC” sync socket or a “hot-shoe”
You are also welcome to bring your own personal lighting systems as well, provided it is portable and battery powered as there will be no electricity available on location.
Now a few guidelines for this shoot and about working with the models...
The models and MUA will be working for trade (TFI - Time For Images) meaning they must receive some photographs from this shoot for their own personal portfolios. We all know film takes time with processing, but please respect the Models and MUA and ensure that they receive some photos within a timely manner.
Modeling/Posing is very hard work and can be quite tiresome. Please allow the models to occasionally take a break as needed.
Please respect the models personal barriers or “safety-zone”. Do not touch the models to pose them without their express permission. This is akin to groping and creeps the models out quite readily. If there is a wardrobe problem please ask the model to fix it, do not take it upon yourself to start pulling at the models clothes without their permission.
Do not force or badger the models into posing in a manner that they feel uncomfortable with. If the model is apprehensive about certain themes or styles, drop it and do not assert “peer-pressure” just to get what you want.
Please do not monopolize the models, remember that there will be other photographers wanting to shoot, please be kind and respectful of each other and if necessary take turns to ensure that everybody gets a chance to shoot!
I know some of these guidelines may seem obvious, but I just want to be certain that everyone understands.
If we all work hard together, we can ensure a fun shoot for everyone!
