What is this photo shoot about?
The monthly theme for this shoot is Pinup!
These shoots are about introducing you and giving you a change to practice modeling photography. We provide everything for you and and even a give you a little bit of education before you shoot!
Featured Instruction: We will have the introduction to Pinup Posing by the lovely Tara from Tara O. Photos. She will give a small talk on some Pinup posing pointers!
Featured Model: This month’s featured model will be Violet Black. She is an aspiring model who has a focus on retro, pin up, and alternative modeling. She loves to work with creatives to create unique and beautiful work! Be sure to send and post the photos you take of her! She can be found through facebook or Model Mayhem.
This event is created to help you gain new experiences with both networking and model sessions. So, just bring yourself, and your charged camera. The date for the event is June 18, 2013.

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. If you are new to PAC, please come to this part of the event and meet everyone! This is a great time to hang out with friends/photogs and to simply get a feel for this event. This is also a great time to ask questions about photography and about PAC. There is usually a review or mini seminar, going over the themed topic, tp get your creative juices flowing! ** REMEMBER this event is your event! Invite new people! Photographers, Models, and MUA’s (of all levels). Share this event and get the word out! **
Part 2 is the Paid Model Shoot. Everything is provided for only 24 photographers to spend approximately 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 8p-10p, 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! PREMIUM Members will be given first choice times! When it is your time to shoot, make sure you have your license with you, you will be given a Pocket Wizard (PW) for your camera in exchange for your license (that’s how you check the PW out). After you are set up with your PW, you will be given the best possible camera settings to start off with and you and your group will take turns during the shoot. Please be considerate of those in your group and take turns accordingly so that everyone has equal amounts of shooting time. There will be a PAC helper with each group, who will help with rotating shot turns, to answer questions and even to provide helpful suggestions to both photographers and model!
This is a no hassle shoot! Backdrops, Pocket Wizards (for Canon/Nikon/Pentax) and Lighting will be provided! Just bring your basic working knowledge of your camera, but most importantly, bring a fun attitude!
Where is the Event? The Duce in Downtown Phoenix, AZ!
IMPORTANT – Bring money for the Valet and/or be sure to look up the location so that you know where it is, parking can be fun downtown! We start this event an hour later than normal, as The Duce is an industrial place with a lot of personality, but it might still be a little warm. So, DRESS LIGHT and bring money for cool beverages! Also, note that The Duce is holding their “South Central Swing Nite!” This adds even more fun to our event! Find more out about The Duce, by visiting their site!
Model Etiquette – Bring your tip money & give your best photos!
Providing a premium opportunity like this is a very good value for everyone attending! To include the model, lighting, VERY cool vibe, etc could easily approach over $300. Please show your appreciation and tell others about these events, and please bring CASH to tip out the models. 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!
