Wow! I'm certainly learning a lot here. And who says the quality of posts here ain't up to standard.
Didn't know that organising such events would be a potential logistical nightmare! :what:
Thanks Richard for showing me some light. Humbled. :embrass:
Perhaps till that day we're stuck with:
a) Fashion shows
b) Sneaking behind couples taking their wedding shots
c) Friends and relatives
But surely we could down-scale the event. Keep it small.
a) A fully furnished studio - indoors. In Geylang or whatever.
b) BYOM or pay some part-timers for a max of 4 hours each (to keep them fresh). Or rotate them. Say maximum of 4 models at only one time (or BYO), and have 2-3 sessions of 4 hours each.
c) Fixed costs (studio and equipment rental) spilt equally depending on the number of sessions.
d) Recurring costs (models) spilt by usage.
e) Have a maxmium number of photographers per session. We don't wanna overwhelm the models or scare them.
f) Maybe engage a student/part-time make-up artise to help out.
g) Have a theme for each session. First session say sporting wear, second session say casual wear, third say formal wear or whatever. We can vote or decide.
Suggest, gauge members response and react accordingly. It's afterall a 'suggestion' forum. Lets be flexible.
And hopefully it'll be a good learning experience.
For all of us.
