A Penny for Your Picture
2010 Northern Colorado Professional Photographers Model Shootout
Edit: It was just pointed out to me that I don’t have the date of the event on here. That’s because I am brain dead. This is why I take pictures. :) The event is happening on 11 September, Saturday. Also – please read the comments below this post for all information. Updates will be posted there. If you have an online portfolio and I haven’t linked to it from this page either send me the link or post it yourself as a comment.
Northern Colorado Professional Photographers (NoCoProPhoto) is putting on their second model shootout this year. This one will be going down at Penny Flats located at 204 Maple Street in Fort Collins. We will have access to two vacant units and are working on getting access to the currently unused business spaces downstairs. It’s going to be a fantastic blank pallet for us to paint upon.
Figuratively that is. Please do not bring any paint.
Also allow me to specify that you will not be getting a penny for any pictures. This gig is trade all the way around. Edit: To be totally clear – no one is being paid for this gig. That includes models. This is a trade gig only. Just had to make that a bit more clear.
Here is the timeline as it stands. More details will be posted as they are ironed out.
0930: Skippy and a few other key players arrive to begin organizing
1030: photographers, designers, make-up and hair start to arrive and set up
1100-1200: models arrive
1300-????: shooting, shooting and more shooting
1630ish: drinks and eats on site

If you are a model or if you want to be a model or if you don’t know if you want to be a model but you got the urge to stand in front of a camera and look hot then you need to be here.
You will have to sign a model release form so the photographers, designers, make-up artists and hair stylist can use your pictures for their ports. You will also have the rights to use the images in your port.
Important note: Models, if you are 17 or younger we will need the signature of a parent or guardian on the model release form. Either bring your approved parental/guarding unit with you or have them sign the release and bring it with you. I’ll have the model release posted here for download soon.
The intention is to have hair stylist, make-up artists and wardrobe/fashion people on hand with their bags of tricks. We don’t really know for sure who is gonna show and how many are gonna show and how many tricks each person will have in their bag. Thus it’s not a bad idea for you to bring some stunning outfits, make-up and a hair brush.
Edit: the model release for is available for you to download and view. Copies will be available on site.
