    usually the most you see is maxed out at 6 shooters to one model.

    And post in the correct subforum.

    Well its to ensure that all photographers have enough time with the models. Each person might have to set up their own lighting and get the model to pose differently and if there is too many people to a model, the photographers might not be able to get the shots they want. And if you run a modelling company, dissatisfied customers is the last thing you want.
    There are no bad photographers, only photos that could've been done better

    that depends on what the photographers intent to achieve,

    if everyone would like to fill up their memory card fast and don't care everyone shots are all looking the same, more than the merrier, then photographers can just line up one line shoot like execution firing squad.

    but if the photographers want to have more individual idea input, each have more unique photos, the lesser photographers will be better.

    I never said it is the ideal number. I just said that that is what most paid photoshoots are offering. Ideal ratio is 1:1.

    you can try more... and seems like you want to organize paid shoots. Try 7 to 10 and see how many shooters will join your shoots. And if you do not tell them upfront, see how they complain during the shoot....

    thanks for all the advise.

    ya trying to org a group shoot if i can. that why need to know and understand thing which are needed. so i won't be making anyone who join unhappy if i ever create one.

    anyway the best ratio is 2:1 ba because 1:1 is not group shoot. haha

    Sometimes taking a few shots is to have higher chance of keeping the shots u want because there may have a accident of slight OOF at the area u are focusing,model may blink their eyes or half open/close,camera shake...some if these are not obvious from the camera screen until u go home and check on a bigger monitor and realized it is too late.
