What is this photo shoot about?
The monthly theme for this shoot is Class Seniors! There are so many markets to tap into for photography. And since the end of school year is fast approaching, it’s time to consider all those Seniors getting ready to graduate! It’s still not too late to be shooting 2013 Seniors and tuning your skills for 2014 Seniors!
For this Model Shoot, we will be bringing in two fun seniors! Keeli returns and she’s bringing fabulous Rachel. Epiphany Studios has blonde Rachel featured on their walls, she is in a stunning photo on a bridge! Both of these young ladies are in the Class of 2013!
This shoot will actually be creating their Senior Photos, photos that they will use for a life time as memories for their end of their Senior Year. So come be a part of this experience! Make some memories while learning how modern Senior Shoots have expanded from just school headshots!
Just bring yourself, and your charged camera. The date for the event is March 26, 2013.
What is the official sign up link to reserve my spot?

What will this event offer and how does it work?
Part 1 is a FREE networking opportunity with Photographers, Makeup and Hair artists, and Models. Bring your portfolio, project ideas, business cards, and great attitude. Bring your camera so you can take test shots if you want. If you are not sure you want to participate in the shoot, please come to this portion of the evening to find out how these events work. This is a great time to hang out with friends/photogs and to simply get a feel of the studio and events. There is usually a review or mini seminar, going over the themed topic, get your creative juices flowing!
Part 2 is the Paid Model Shoot. Everything is provided for only 24 photographers to spend 20 minutes shooting in groups of three. By limiting the number of photographers shooting, you’ll have additional time to work your angles and vision for this session, or to simply ask questions!
Shooting sessions are from 7p-9p, you will sign up on a list when you arrive and will be given at time slot. So if you reserved your spot, go find the list! When it is your time, you will be given a Pocket Wizard (PW) for your camera in exchange for your license (that’s how you check the PW out), and you will be given the best possible camera settings to start off with. We have a helper with each group to help with rotating shot turns, to answer questions and even to provide helpful suggestions!
Backdrops, Pocket Wizards (for Canon/Nikon/Pentax) and Studio Lighting will be provided. Bring your basic working knowledge of your camera, but most importantly, bring a fun attitude!

Our models are agreeing to model for you at a significantly reduced rate with the hope that they will get more shoots from YOU. So tip them, provide images back to them after the shoot, and contact them to work with them! Remember to introduce yourself, and to thank them for working our event!
