Birmingham, AL 35205
Please RSVP at
Well as stated above we are gonna host our second BIG event this year in about 3 weeks (from this original posting). Even though our group has Birmingham in the name we have a number of members from all over the state (Fort Payne, Anniston, Tuscaloosa, etc) so please don’t think we only want local people.
With this Meet and Greet, shooting is completely optional. We wanted to use a venue in which shooting is possible, but we want everyone to know that they are NOT REQUIRED to shoot. Come out, mingle, talk and get to know the photographers, models, stylists, etc. in the area. The old adage about “its who you know” still applies, and just by having profiles on model sites, it doesn’t really mean you know anybody. Making a good impression in person, that is memorable, can sure go a long way. It’s a NO-PRESSURE environment meant to encourage everyone to have fun while getting their work seen by more of the local community.
Since more of the emphasis at this event is the networking, the shoot part isn’t supervised by us, all details regarding with whom you shoot, releases, and terms of the shoot are to be handled BY YOU. Be sure that you discuss the terms with your collaborators, and that all details are understood and all parties have a copy of the release.
A couple things to add.
Please RSVP by either filling out the form linked here or by sending the same info to the email address BirminghamMediaNetworkingGroup@hotmail.com
The RSVP will allow us to plan correctly for the attendance. Members you need to RSVP as well.
