two (possibly silly) questions
will we be able to shoot all 5 models (together and/or separate)?
are your designs set, or will you consider requests?
Nov 16 12 10:16 am Link
Yes, I am trying to time it out so that a few llamas are done before photographers get there, then can start taking pictures individually and once all the girls are done being painted group shots could be taken. I'm thinking of a sexy santa and elf, so those two might pair up for a bit... I hope that it can be a relaxed shoot, that people are willing to work together... I was at the studio last night and there are 3 separate areas that can be shot at simultaneously.
A request will depend on what you request specifically lol, but definitely will consider! I just have to be very care with time management You know how long these can take!

is it studio light or do you have natural lighted areas also

It is studio lit, there is a front area with windows that is more the front office not really set up to be shot. Possibly could do some shots in there on the couch, but a sheet would have to be put down to make sure no paint gets on the couch.

Awesome Steve, would be great to have you there!!
I thought I would go ahead and copy some more info I had on my website, anybody feel free to ask any question you may have. And if you do have requests for body painting, please let me know soon, my painting always go better when I can plan ahead!
I am thrilled to announce my first body painting group special!
For the price of less than one bodypainting, I will be in the studio painting 4-5 knockout girls for you to photograph. I will be keeping the group somewhat small to make sure each photographer can get quality time getting the shots they want.
Amateur and professional welcome, but all will be expected to act professionally with the models. An uncomfortable model does not get good shots! This will be a long day for the them, so courteous helpful behavior will be appreciated! These models are also working TF for this shoot, so please get their contact information to send a few good shots, and bring your own release forms for them to sign!
You will be asked to leave with no refund if complaints are heard.
Theme for all girls will be winter holiday! Snowflakes, sexy Santa outfit, mistletoe... still thinking up ideas!
Studio located in Groveport, Ohio with several selections for background, including green screen.
Limited space available, $50.00 non-refundable deposit required to save your spot with remainder due at arrival. You can make your deposit in the contact page of this site and I will send you a confirmation # and address, and feel free to send any questions. Time has not been set yet, but should be early-afternoon Sunday December 16th.

it sounds like it would be fun to do but I only use natural light so I would be kind of lost shooting
Nov 20 12 02:10 pm Link
I understand, If I do again I will think about trying to set up natural light space too! Could always come though and learn something new with other photographers that have worked with them before, I know the photographers definitely coming would be happy to talk to you about lighting!

Very Interested. Would like more information on how the shoot will be arranged. Will there be one on one time with the model? Multiple shooting stations? Lighting setup? Start and End time?
Nov 20 12 05:34 pm Link
OK, this will get a little wordy
My thoughts are first, I have decided that I will have to keep this down to 4 girls due to only having 3 stations to work with, it would just leave too much downtime for models and photographers.
There will be 6 photographers, start time will be 2pm, 3 models will be ready or near ready. Photographers will team up in pairs and go to each of the 3 stations. They can share 45 minutes how they wish. At 45 minutes, photographers will move to next station, and share again. Next 45 minutes, both the models and photographers will move to next station, this way making sure everyone gets variety of backgrounds and models. The 4th model will be put into the rotation as soon as I am done with her. The rotations would be over in about 3 hours sticking to that schedule, then do an hour of group/partner shooting with photographers taking turns. At that point time would be officially over, but if model and photographer agree on their own, I will stay up to one hour longer for anyone to get any shots they were not able to...
So for photographers, times will be 2-6pm and can negotiate with models for up to one hour longer shoot time. Models are getting there early or driving long distances, so I will not promise that any of them will be willing! I just want to let it be known I will stay a little longer and clean while shooting is still going on.
This is all I have thought of so far, if anyone sees potential issues with this plan, feel free to say so, I want this to go smoothly for everyone and make sure all photographers feel they got enough and fair time with each model.

I do not have specifics on lighting setup, I will write the owner of the studio and get more info for you!

Had a great time today. Enjoyed working with everyone. Will have most of the pics available on a link for review/choosing in a few hrs.

Thank you Steve, was great having you out, thank you for being so patient with the few little issues we had. Good to know for the future what changes to make!! Im thinking more of a one on one type where a do a model, and one photographer comes in while I am painting for the next photographer. Won't be the group shots but will keep time to a minimum for the models and photographers will get their own shots... but will think on that later LOL. Have a great night!!!
