Toledo, Ohio, US

The next Toledo Ohio Collingwood Arts Center (CAC) Group Shoot will be held on SATURDAY September 8, 2012 from 10am -to- 7pm. This event is 18+ and open to any and all Models, Photographers, MUA's, Stylists, Videographers and Vendors in and around the area.

When? The event will be held during 10am -to- 7pm on Saturday and 10am-to-5pm on Sunday. (Note: for the purpose of setting up, check in and ...such, the doors will be open at 9:30am)

Where? The event will be held at the Collingwood Arts Center (CAC) located at 2413 Collingwood, Toledo, Oh 43620

Who? The event will be hosted by Ohio photographer Visions of Excess.

Cost? The cost of the event is $20. MUA'S and stylists will be allowed to attend for $5. (Note: If you are attending as an MUA or stylist, you MUST do what you are there to do. So, MUA's and Stylists will not be allowed to shoot {as either model or photographer} if you are found to have done so, you will be asked to pay the $20 entry fee).

Vendors? Any and all vendors are welcome, however the Collingwood Arts Center (CAC) does ask for 20% of the net total sales you make during the event or for you to pay the $20 cost (you can choose either option). And if you are attending as a Vendor you MUST contact us before you commit to attending the event, as there are different forms that you must sign.

Food? This will be a potluck style event, so anyone that would like to bring a dish is welcome to do so and please express so in your post so that we can make a list.

Rules? The rules for the event are as follows:

1. No tentative list. We understand that sometimes you're unsure if you'll be able to attend or not. But please, if you're unsure, do not ask to be listed as "tentative", simply express your interest in attending once you know for sure.

2. No call-no shows. If you choose to no show to this event, you will not be allowed to attend future CAC events. Of all the things that are reputation killers, flaking has got to be in the top 5. (Note: Exceptions will be made for those with good reasons)

3) Last minute cancellations. I.E. "No money, no ride etc". This is something that has been announced well in advance for you to make proper adjustments to attend. One is excusable, but if it happens twice, you'll be asked not attend future events.

4) Communication is key! Photographers and models, please communicate with each other to coordinate and confirm your schedules, concepts, and meeting place.

5) Personal and professional conduct. Conduct yourself in a manner befitting an industry professional. Should a problem with this arise, it will be addressed and quelled. Should this issue persist, you'll be asked to leave and not attend future events.

6) New rule. All participants will be sent a confirmation email at least a week prior to the group shoot. If you do not respond, your name will be removed from the attendance list. If you have a FB page that doesn't allow me to contact you, you will not be added to the attendance list until you do.

   2. Please DO NOT lean over or hang over/on rails of stairs, DO NOT climb on ledges, etc. All staircases are off limits to shooting except the Grand staircases in the main Theatre lobby. You may only shoot on the Grand staircases freehand or with a monopod to limit obstruction. DO NOT attempt to place any person within the wall niches on the Grand staircases.
   3. If an area has been blocked, roped or taped off, it is for a reason, DO NOT enter the area.
   4. The elevator is a mode of conveyance, not an area to shoot in. No shooting in the elevator.
   5. DO NOT at any time exit the building through any door or window on to any portion of the roof of the structure. Any person(s) found on the roof will be escorted from the building immediately.
   6. ‘Bulldogs’ have been employed to watch over the building during your stay. NO ONE is allowed to “explore” the building. The second and third floor of the Gerber House is off limits.

The Theatre Balcony seating area is off limits. Residential spaces such as the kitchen basement and laundry room as well as all bathrooms are off limits. If you are asked to leave an area, you are to comply. One warning will be given, if you are found in an off limits area a second time, you will be escorted from the building.
   7. Please treat our residents in a kindly manner. They will respect you if you respect them. REMEMBER, you are a visitor, they live here. If you are treated negatively by a resident, please let Boyd  know immediately and it will be dealt with.
   8. DO NOT include any artwork currently on display or anywhere in this facility within your photographs unless you have express written consent from the artist.
   9. DO NOT move a piece of art to shoot in the space it occupied.
  10. NO BARE FEET WHILE TRAVELING THROUGH THE BUILDING!  This is a public health issue. Also there is debris on the floor of the basement and some other areas that could potentially injure your feet. Bare feet where you are shooting only.
  11. Nude layouts may only be done in the small rooms on the 4th and 5th floors of A-wing, in the C basement or behind specified closed doors. Ask Boyd if you do not know where these are. You may also rent a private space in which to shoot nudes if there is one currently available.
  12. DO NOT attempt to move or adjust the red drapes in the arches and doorways of the balcony.
  13. No smoking inside the building. No smoking within 16” of any entrance. The designated smoking areas are at the ashtray outside the main entrance and on the patio. Dispose of your butts in an appropriate manner please (this does not mean on the ground).
  14. No alcohol is to be consumed on the grounds unless purchased from the CAC. Alcohol must be consumed within designated areas.
  15. No elicit drugs are to be carried onto the premises or used on the premises. The community’s laws extend within this building. If it’s illegal out there…it’s illegal in here.
  16. We are not responsible for items left in the building.  Please take all valuables with you, have someone watch over them or lock them in your car.
  17. No guns of any kind are allowed on the premises, whether real or replica.  No exceptions! Prop blades such as swords to be used in layouts are acceptable as long as the blade is dulled.
  18. Please DO NOT turn off or unplug ANYTHING without asking first.

I just saw this notice and I'm interested in coming back to CAC - its been years and I've been away from shooting for a spell. I am seeking transportation from Detroit in getting to the shoot.

I'll be pursuing the urbanLUSTer section of my portfolio at the event.

This will be my first CAC shoot and I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone in person.  As of now, I don't have any slots filled, so feel free to message me here or in the Facebook group (Aaron Prunkard on FB).  In addition to photography, I do a lot of digital painting incorporating my photography.  I'm open to just about anything, so if you've got ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Even thought I am not on the list here I am attending, all the excitement must be on FB, quiet here, too quiet.

Long time no see..... Looking for a ride from exotic zone?

Im was also thinking of saying hi and doing some shooting but I can't get models anymore because facebook will not let you send a message unless your a facebook member.  And for me its like asking me to join the natzi party.  They are such bad citizens of the internet I can't wait till their gone.  FB users, Did ya get everything back to normal after facebook changed your primary e-mail contact to their e-mail system with out asking?  Have you been targeted in the mall or elsewhere because facebook sold your image along with your personal information so stores could use their security camera's to know who to target and with what advertisements?  Oh and by the way the facebook stalking app ( where facebook  "Checks you in" to a place your physically visiting ) will be kind enough to let others know exactly when to break into your house or where to go to find you to do ... whatever .... unless you turned it off and facebook didn't turn it back on so they can show advertisers more users and charge them more for fantasy characters....

but I digress...

Exotic Zone has been mothballed for over a year. I did arrange a ride with someone, and it turned into a time crunch mess (relying on someone new to group shoots to be on time). I know I'm not the best on being early anyway, so it became doubly difficult. Missed shooting my 1st appointment entirely and barely made it there by noon for the 2nd appointment.

When I go next time I'll have to prepare better.
