HOW DOES IT WORK?
We believe firmly that group events should allow everyone attending to get an equal opportunity to shoot with each of the models. We arrange attendees into groups of three and then rotate each group around the sets in turn approximately every 27 minutes or so. Our events are run with precise timings so that it works for everyone involved with a short break between each set. On this event each attendee will get to work with each of the seven models in turn.
Some of the sets and photographic possibilities are outdoors, in and around the private gardens. Lighting equipment will be provided on each set indoors where necessary for your use. The use of lighting equipment is included within your admission price. Lights will either be continuous lights or studio/strobe lighting with triggers and modifiers for your use. If you require assistance using the lights provided then we will be on hand to provide expertise.
You are also welcome to bring along your own lighting rigs if you are more comfortable using them but you must keep them with you at all times and observe COVID compliant usage restrictions.
We are a COVID-19 responsible organisation and will be taking and making all necessary arrangements to observe guidelines and to ensure safety wherever possible. Attendees may wear their own masks if they prefer.
Hand sanitisers will be available for your usage and anti-bacterial wipes will be on hand when handing over triggers for lights. You will be required to observe the prevailing social distancing guidelines.
Tea/coffee will be provided on this event.
