The best pictures in the world are the ones that tell a story. They capture a moment, a movement, a feeling that makes the audience want to know what is coming next….. The focus of this group is to create wonderful stories in a digital framework.
Shoot locations will encompass all parts of Southern California from San Diego County, the Inland Empire, Orange County, Antelope Valley and the High Desert.
Photographers: Experienced professionals and newcomers come and create, share and grow together. Bored of just shooting the same sweet young things in next to nothing and yearn to seduce people’s imaginations with ideas and themes you have never tried before? Please join us! This is not to say I will stay away from sexy themes entirely, but it is not the primary focus and certainly only part of any story. These photos are for promotion only and not to be used for commercial use. They may be used for submission to magazines and self promotion. Both models and photographers will have rights to share the photos to promote their collaborative work. I ask that you post your very best images to the site so it is easy for models to access the images within 2 weeks of a shoot.
Models: I am looking for all varieties to participate in our shoots and will be actively recruiting depending on the theme. If a theme for a shoot lends itself to a story you feel you can tell please sign up! Some of the most beautiful images I have ever seen have been told through a subject’s eyes; from a small child to a wizened faced woman of 90…..
Hairstylists and Makeup Artists: if you have a vision you would like to share, please contact me! If you are new to the industry and would like to work with an experienced stylist, I would enjoy working with you. You will be provided with wonderful models to create with and set you free, or help you with ideas to help expand your portfolio with more editorial looks! I look forward to your input.
Fees: Many of the shoots will include props, costuming, location costs and donations. Every shoot involves hours of my time in preparation. Every shoot will have drinks provided and longer shoots will include snacks and lunch. In addition to these costs, there are several charities that will be the benefit of our work. These shoots will be labeled as fundraisers for certified non profit organizations where a portion of the shoot fees will be donated to the charity (this will be denoted in the shoot description). Wolf Mountain Sanctuary and No Drama Therapeutic Ranch are the first two that will benefit from our group.
Membership Fee: $20 yearly membership fee for both photographers and models.
