Southwest Florida Meet & Greet #2


Continuing the process of 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, January 17th, 5pm till ?? @ ( T/B/A ) and we would love it if you could make it!

We are currently looking for a location between Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. Our thoughts and comments from the Sarasota meet was to have possibly a Hotel with an outdoor Grill/Bar and a small conference room where we could set up
a few backdrops for Photographers to shoot Models indoors and still have the option for shooting on the waterfront as well.

If anyone from that area knows of a place or wants to recommend I check it out, please let me know.  I will be scounting the area in a couple weeks for possible locations.  I will also work on trying to find a Hotel to offer us Special room rates for anyone traveling
who would prefer to spend the night.

Please keep an eye out on our threat in the events section and as always...

Here's one of Courtney...
No photoshop (besides the logo).
For this shot we used the light ring that Salvatore made.
Color settings/white balancing was done by the great Keith aka Wolfie!
Make up by Barbie looks amazing!

OK, I hope Courtney is now convinced that she should be modeling!  Look how gorgeous!  Nice job to all.

Hey Keith, give this thread a few days to chat it up and show pics, then have it locked and start a new one for the next greet...  Don't want that info to get buried amongst all that chatter about how wonderful this one was.. WHICH IT WAS!!!  big_smile

Thanks for the event. I can't wait from more of this M&G events.

I really learned a lot from talking to (you) photographers that have been in the game for awhile. I really took everything to heart so I can be at your (guys') level.

Really nice to talking with the models and I hope that we can work together later down the road.

It was SO fun for me in many levels.

I'm glad everyone had a good time, glad we had such a great turnout. I really had a great time meeting some old friends and making even more new ones.

Its going to be hard to top the 1st Southwest Florida M&G but I am sure going to give it a shot!

Gee, I'm sorry I missed the "Cherry Tomato" scene. I sure hope with all those Photographers around, someone snapped it  ;-)

Im so looking forward to the Port Charlotte and Fort Myers meet ups. After reading the posts after the Sarasota 1 it seems you all are very supportive and helpful with each other.

Hope those that go to the next 2 are the same way. Especially to a newbie like me.

Look forwarding to meeting you all.

Thats what these meet-n-greets are all about. Making new contacts, whether you are a photographer, Model, MUA, Stylist or Designer, there is always something for everyone. Most are all very open with helping people in the hobby/industry.

We hope you make it to the Port Charlotte/Punta Groda meet and remember to spread the word...  The more the merrier!

Yes please come on down to the next ones that are in the works.  We will make you feel welcome or scare the hell out of you, one or the other. lol........... ok, well maybe not we, but rather I should say me.  They are really a good way to meet people and see who you would like to work with.......... and don't forget your camera, plenty of cool shots come out of these things.
