Model Shoot / Photographer & Model Social
Downtown DC on April 28th 6pm-9pm
Join us at The Alta Condo's "Skylounge" in downtown Washington for this fun social, shooting, and networking event for both photographers and models (open to male, female, and drag performers).
Please register by March 30th if possible so we can get a good idea of how many photographers plan to attend (so I can decide how many models to scout for). If you register after March 30th, the cost may increase.
There will not be any nude modeling at this event. Swimwear and men shirtless is acceptable.
Beyond some optional shooting, the primary purpose is to socialize -- meet and networking with others interested in male portrait photography. We may also present a slide show featuring our member's portraiture work.
We will begin at 6 pm with open shooting and live demonstration of fill light. Photographers can shoot in small groups or if there are enough models, work one on one. This gives those that want to shoot some time to get settled and shoot into the golden hour (sunset will occur around 8 pm). If weather permits, there is indoor and outdoor shooting areas. It is not a large scale photo shoot, so it is a more casual shooting environment - capture some cool images without a lot of stress.
All models in attendance will have an opportunity to be in front of the camera. Photographers can choose to bring a camera, but it is not required or expected of all. All photographers will assume liability for their equipment.
We will provide beverage (no alcohol please) and food (most likely pizza/salad). The fee to join is $30 and this fee covers the room rental, food & beverage. If you're an experienced model and wish to attend at a discount, please contact me to discuss options.
If you cancel and give at least 48 hours notice, you will receive a refund of 50% of what you paid and a credit toward a future workshop or event within one year for the other 50%.
Taylor may bring a videographer to capture some of the fun at this event!
FREE to attend for "Featured Models". Please email for any model inquiries. As a featured model, your entrance to the event is taken care of (enjoy dinner with us) and you'll receive images after the event and have a chance to meet many photographers who may consider hiring you for future shoots. Any requests for payment at the event need to be mentioned prior to confirming your attendance.
Activities will include a lighting and posing demonstration, model shooting, networking and social fun for photographers and models, and dinner.
All photographers and models may register to attend for a fee of $30 at this link. You must be a member of the Male Photography Meetup group (free to join) to register.
Reduced cost option may also be offered for additional models.
Current models planning to attend are show in the gallery below (will update this gallery as I confirm model attendance or cancellation).
Specific model attendance is not guaranteed and may vary from models shown below. You must register at the Meetup site (link above) OR be confirmed personally by David E as a featured or guest model.
