  • This location is shown only to members

DETAILS!!!! ok every one I have some great details for this shoot.

LOCATION:
It will be held at boutique hotel, Hotel Elan[masked] Ave Sw, Calgary, AB, T2R 0T6
I have made a reservation for a 2 room suite one room with a queen bed and the other living space with a couch and desk area. Take a look at some of the photos on line by following this link 

http://hotelelan.ca/hotel/photo-gallery/


It will be a closer environment than the Auto club but we should have room for 4 shooters and 2 models. COST: It will work out to $110 per person. This includes the cost for the hotel and for the 2 models for the day. Payment is due no later than JUNE 4th! LIGHTING:
there will be some natural light from the windows but not enough to rely on and it also may change throughout the day. This is not my specialty so if anyone can step up and make some suggestions or just let every one know what you will be bringing, that would be great. Pls do not hesitate to post questions /comments :)

    Sorry, my fault...please only post first names of the models, unless you know for sure it is a modelling name, not their real name..
    don't want them showing up in google search..

    it would be really nice if folks could start posting the names of the models as the caption..
    Part of the reason they come out and model with us is to promote themselves and get a few more paid shoots..

    I spoke with Strobe Pro again and he will give us some loaner equipment for the shoot. I will pick it up on Friday this time as last time he was closed on Saturday. Two stands, two strobes, and hopefully softboxes etc. I will also have a light meter for those who wish to use it.

      I just set up the whole thing in my dining room and tested, worked fine with my nikon and then tried my canon point and shoot and that worked fine as well. We have the 600 series, similar set-up to this but no softboxes but big umbrella instead, nice set-up http://www.strobepro....­

    Ian, if you need to borrow my lighting, let me know and I can meet you in Cochrane. I can loan you some strobes, softbox, umbrellas and triggers.

      Thanks for the offer Dan, i have a few odds and ends of my own now. My plan is to keep it simple. I will probably just take one strobe and one modifier. Going to use the KISS approach...

    I would have signed up but made alternate plans due to the fact this meetup was full for some time. I would suggest costs are collected much earlier and if People drop out at the last minute it would be up to them to forfeit their deposit or find someone else to take their place. If no one else commits at this late date, it will be quite costly for the others that are still going.

    I think Peter Stock will have "suggestions" for this meetup event.

    I am teaching a photography course in the Kananaskis that day so have to leave my spot for someone else.

    May 31, 2014

    • Dan

      Wow...how did you organize the whole teacher/course thing in only a few days or so? What's the topic and maybe I will sign up?

    Hello Friends
    I am looking in to the details of the hotel and models! I originally had planed to do this in a lovely two level suite at the Delta South however the hotel is undergoing renovations and they cannot guarantee the suite will be available at this time. I will be checking out 2 other locations on Friday and will hopefully have a cost, details on location and models chosen by Monday. Cheers !

      We should finalize the details soon.

      I have never tried to shoot in a hotel, not sure how that would work, with space restraints and stuff..Not sure what we would need for lighting etc.
      One of the other folks that have rsvped who have done a hotel room shoot need to step up and offer some advice on this one..

    I have removed the discussions below, now that the details are sorted. So we can keep this for the meetup discussion now.

    Elle has stepped up to be the event host for this meetup..She has a theme, she has models. She will be posting more detail up shortly.

    Mo is going to be out of town for this one.
    Harry has stepped up to volunteer as coach/timekeeper etc.

    Once the details have been finalized we will need people to let us know what equipment they can supply. There is an expectation that if you have been coming to model shoots for a while now, you should have some lighting, backdrops,triggers to bring and share. It is not right that the same people always supply equipment and have wear and tear, and the occasional breakage.
    We will need two backdrops, two sets of lights and triggers.
