Hello my Photographer Friends!
Trisha Shelley and I have partnered up with some amazing vendors in Southern New Mexico to put together a romantic modern styled shoot, and we’d like to invite you to be a part of it!
Drawing the inspiration from the shoot from Silver City’s Kneeling Nun, this styled shoot will be full of copper details, gorgeous florals, modern geometric terrariums, intricate calligraphy, a gorgeous cake we’ll have to restrain ourselves from eating all day…eek!, and the chance to connect with local vendors and photographers.
We are opening up a very limited number of “seats” to photographers interested in attending the styled shoot. Photographer participants will have the chance to photograph the details, the setup, and the bride and groom models, and then use their photos on their websites and social media. Photographs from every photographer will be gathered into a gallery to send to each of the contributing vendors for them to use in their marketing as well. This is a great chance to build relationships, add to your portfolio, and jump start wedding season!
Who: Any Photographer is invited to join from beginning to professional!
What: A Styled Shoot is a session arranged for wedding industry vendors to come together in collaboration. Vendors donate time and services to put together the shoot in return for the photos and exposure. Photographers come together and take photos for their use and to donate to the vendors as reimbursement.
Where: Silver City, NM (address will be given out to attendees)
When: September 24, 2016 from 5pm-6pm.
Why: Because who doesn’t love the chance to photograph a gorgeous wedding setting, make new friends, and build their business all at the same time?!
- Will there be teaching? These shoots are for shooting only. There will be no formal teaching involved and this is not a workshop.
- Permissions: All photographers are allowed to use the images in their personal portfolios, websites, social media and to submit to online NON EXCLUSIVE publications. Please allow 2 months prior to submitting images for online publications as Trisha Shelley will be submitting images to specific exclusive editors. You must credit each and every vendor that is involved. A list will be given with all the vendors information in an email a day or two prior to the event and will also have a few on hand at the event. NO submissions to printed magazines or exclusive blogs are permitted.
- What is expected of me: Arrive on time, be kind and gracious to the other photographers (no elbowing each other to get that shot) and send your images to Trisha at firstname.lastname@example.org within one month of the photo shoot in web resolution non watermarked images so Trisha can deliver them to the vendors. This can be done through your online gallery or through a host that allows large files to be emailed. The online gallery we present to the vendors will have a password for them to download the images. DO NOT send your galleries to the vendors yourself as we will take care of this.
- Why is there a cost for photographers? There are many costs to putting together a styled shoot from buying an assortment of props, paying for dress rental or dress cleaning and helping contribute to vendors costs to make it possible for them to come. It also takes a lot of time to coordinate these shoots so that photographers can just come and enjoy and get to shoot without the stress of putting it all together.
