Portfolios & Portraits Photography Event - Apply Now!

The photographers for this event have been selected. Thanks to all of you who applied. It was exciting to see the quality and character of work that you have been doing.

The next Model Moment event is in July. If you are interested, please apply.

Note that

1. Applying early gives you an advantage

2. Attending Photo Explorers meetups gives you an advantage.

3. No Shows to our events will disqualify you for six months


Photos Explorers has been invited to provide photographers for a model portfolio and portrait event. It is an opportunity for aspiring portrait photographers to shoot in a professional setting.

Date: May 5th, 2013

Time: 10AM - 7PM

Location: Pike Place Market (Exact location to be given to participants)

To Participate:

The event needs a limited number of photographers. If you would like to be considered, RSVP on the event and include a link to your portfolio, Flickr account Facebook page or whatever. The event organizer will review them and select photographers.

What You Need: Photographers will set up stations at the venue. Bring your own lights, backdrops and props. You can also shoot in natural light.

Make sure you are available for this before you sign up! You must be professional and reliable. A No Show at a professional event will result in a six month restriction from any invitational event..


This is an opportunity for new photographers to work a formal event for the experience.

Note to Pros: We will publish all legitimate events. Some will pay. Some will not. We understand your perspective on payment for services, but not everyone is ready for paid gigs. If you are not interested in working an event for no pay, please just ignore it. Flames and rants will be deleted.

      Thanks Ankit! I thought so too. I like your idea of getting together to share the photos. I'll set up the meetup.

    If needed ..I can help setup product photography table . It will help if some can help with 3 more strobes with stands. I have 3 strobes but we really need 5-6 to have a good setup . I have black and white background and diffusion materials needed . Will need couple of stands too besides a bit of space (15 feet length and 10 -12 feet wide. A good height will be helpful)

      Agata, the answer to your question was yes. I didn't get an answer until after the slots were filled. I hope you will apply to the one in July if you are interested.
