The Birmingham Media Networking Group is planning our second meet and greet. Our date is Sunday August 30, 2009 and the time is 4:30pm. We will be meeting at UAB again. The venue worked extremely well last time. ****We are in the Auditorium at the Hill University Center*****
At this networking event we will have a protable studio setup with some photographers doing some onsite photos of models, other photogs, etc. We will have a laptop with blank CD’s to burn the images for you. Mainly this will be for basic headshots, but depending on the photographer actually shooting and time, you could definitely do more.
Here is a general format, it is slightly altered from the last event.
4:15-4:45 arrival and socializing. Past attendees make sure to introduce yourself to new attendees.
4:45 – 5:15 quick introductions by new attendees.
5:15-6:15 casting announcements (if not casting but only looking for work [please realize most/all are looking for paid work but utilize this for both oppurtunities] a quick blurb about that). Go around the room and each person has opportunity to announce castings.
6:15 Time to talk with those you want to work and to fulfil casting. Also for the photographers to shoot models at the mini setups and other photogs, mua’s, etc (not only models may want some photos of themselves).
Finish about 7:00 (if approx time schedule works out). Feel free to stay and hang out after, I will schedule to have the room for the rest of the time the building is open, 9pm, so if don’t feel the need to rush out at 7pm.
