Group shoots are great fun and a good way to network. When I joined NM group shoots were a regular thing and a good way for photographers to meet umpteen models from far away in one day and same for models to meet the faces behind the cameras.

Group shoots and meetup's used to be the glue that made this site really good, sadly now it has all vanished.
I understand you go to Chichester on occasion, perhaps we could do something next time your there?

The Brighton group shoot used to be awesome. We once had 100 models, togs and Mua's. We had an American car theme amongst many. I looked to re-do one last year but the interest just wasn't there anymore. It was a brilliant way to network. Us togs - it's easy to see what the model looks like. For a model looking at a tog - you only see what the lens is looking at and don't get an idea of who is behind the camera.

Yeh its a bummer since the UK had to sell East Sussex to Bulgaria to pay for brexit ... I got turned back at the Wadhurst checkpoint back in December because I didnt have the correct documentation ... The problem has been compounded by Kent being annexed by Nepal and the two counties now being in a state of war.

Just not enough people on here regularly now unfortunately. Been a long time since I arranged a shoot through here.

Yes, Brighton was so awesome it was almost as good as the Cardiff Big Shoots (2006; 2007 & 2009) (in joke there was a great rivalry between them)

Sadly the venue was demolished late last year so I can put hand on heart and say there will never be another.

All a bit sad really beach use they really did make this place a community.

I think this is a dead thread now.
Seems like someone threw an idea up in the air and it fell flat?
I stand to be corrected!

Part of the problem is a shift in emphasis on who is prepared to pay and for what. The spirit of giving for the fun of it has reduced. Probably due to the credit squeeze.
That has led to people organising things they have called group shoots but with the expectation that they will make some money out of it. That was always anathema to the classic group shoot.
The Cardiff Big Shoots were run to make money for the local children's hospice and everyone paid the same to attend. HUNDREDS of people turned up.

The basic concept was everyone turned up and paid their £10
No one made any money. Except the hospice.
No commercial work was undertaken.
Everyone worked TF/P.
No one hogged a model, a photographer, a setting etc.
Everyone supported everyone else.

I can see no reason why some good group shoots should be arranged in the summer. I will give it some thought.

Yes that is true he charges photographers I think 60 andthe models go free but I think pay for shots. Let's see what you come up with...

I've seen a couple on PP though they are more a case of 2 or 3 models and togs book hour slots with them.

So they are more a way for a tog to test with a model for an hour without having to do the 3 hour minimum booking that a lot of models have.
