Our Events

These are photo shoot gatherings.  The goal is to help models and photographers improve themselves by practice and self-promotion.  No Models Fee.  Photographers may pay a fee/donation to help cover expenses.  Types of events are "Fashion Only" and "Fashion & Swimwear" (No Nudity.)  Events are for female models ages 15yrs &up; unless otherwise noted.  Models under 18yrs must bring parent.

Parents and Models are Limited to camera phone usage. Over recent years, this has become a form of interference and delays. Rules vary per event. Please Respect the Event and Rules.

-NEWLY ADDED for the Camera Phone Generation.  Photographers are usually experimenting with new equipment, Especially with Digital Technology.  They can make adjustments to get better pictures.  So, things like lenses, flashes, and stands.
  Even how to use Photo Software.

Outfits

Fashion includes casual or dressy.  (It's Not a fashion show.)  Swimwear includes 1 piece or 2 piece.  Models should bring 3-4 outfits. It's recommended that you bring bright colored tops (red, blu, green, yellow,...etc) for Outdoor Photography.  Typically black or white tops are harder to photograph.  Bottoms can be any color.  In general, solid colors are best for tops and bottoms.

Event Types

Most events are for Pictures Only, also abreviated as TFP or TFCD.  Remember to exchange information.
