Southwest Florida Meet & Greet

We are setting up a Meet-n-Greet for the members of Model Mayhem who are located from Bradenton/Sarasota south to Ft. Myers/Naples for Saturday, September 20th, 5pm till ?? @ the Brancifort Studio in Sarasota

www.sasdns.com/kewo/SwfSrq-M-n-G.pdf

This event is open to all Models, MUA’s, Stylist's and Photographers who would like to attend this fun event. There is no official "membership" or organization nor are there any dues or fees to attend a meet.
The locations will vary from meet to meet. We will try and center the meet around each area as a new meet date is set.  The First meet will be around the Sarasota area, then the next meet will be around Port Charlotte and so on..  We are trying to set up a meet possibly 3 times a year about every 4 months. Please try to make them all if possible.

      September - Sarasota Area
      January      - Port Charlotte
      May             - Ft. Myers


Southwest Florida MEET & GREET Information
Each gathering will be around an area suitable for setting up quick shoots for Models and Photographers who would like to see how each interact with the other but remember - shooting is completely optional and not "Required" to attend. We will try and select a location for the meet that will allow for shooting if you so desire. Meets may be an indoor location with backdrops, etc or an outdoor setting like a local park, beach, etc.

Photographers - Chance to mingle, meet, network, as well as get your questions answered in person by any one of your peers, check out the local models for future assignments before you book them, meet new models that you never knew before and would definitely like to work with them in the future.

Models - Chance to mingle, meet, network, network, network and start booking shoots. There will be photographers from your surrounding area in attendance. If you would like to book a shoot or just don't know the best way to go about it, come on down.  It is a great chance to meet other Models and bounce ideas and questions off of them.

MUA's & Stylist's - Again...mingle.. mingle.. mingle. Talk to Photographers & Models about your past work and upcoming projects you would like to work on.

All Attendee's - Please remember to bring Business Cards or something with your information so both Model, MUA's and Photographers can get back with each other. It would be a very good idea to bring portfolios with you, particularly if you are a photographer or MUA so that people can familiarize themselves with your work.

Thanks Joey..
I always have a blast at the Tampa ones but so many of the southern MM'ers just
can't make the distance so we thought we would try and relay some of the great info from the Tampa M&G's down to the southwest.
