Mike Bean Presents "HOMEGROWN HOTTIES" - Series 4 # 1 – Jan 5th

DESCRIPTION OF EVENT -- "Fabric Free Entertainment"

DETAILS OF THE EVENT

(1) Shoot Times will be 11am to 3pm with up to 3 hours for 1-on-1's beginning at 3:15. 

(2)We will be using a beautiful 4000 Sq Ft. Home in Riverside.  This event will be in the format of past Homegrown Hotties Events. 

(3)MODELS WILL BE PAID A BASE PAY OF $100.00 FOR THE GROUP SHOOT AND WE NEVER TAKE A PERCENTAGE OF YOUR 1-ON-1 MONEY.

(4)We will hire 10-12 figure / implied models.  We will feature some models who are new to our event and we will bring back a few favorites from past events.

(5)NOTE:  While we will make every effort to accomodate the models personal schedules, We also reserve the right to replace any model who cannot be accomodated, without advance notice. Unfortunately there are models who insist on calling themselves "professional" but are willing to bail out on a scheduled shoot for another one that pays a few dollars more.

(6)We will be providing blank model releases for registered photographers at all of our future events.

(7)Pictures of the Location are now posted on my profile page (MM 21405).

(8)Bruce Lin from the Linco Store will hold a Special Raffle during this event.  Every Registered Photographer will receive a Raffle Ticket and you may purchase up to 20 more for $1.00 each.  Raffle Items will vary at each Event.
Dec 1st, Bruce gave away an $800.00 Umbrella & Stand.
Congratulations to Ghamal Gaines for your win of the $800.00 Umbrella & Stand at this shoot.

(1) You are being paid to participate as a Nude Model or Implied Model for the Group Shoot Portion of the event, In exchange for this, you will be paid $100 ($50.00 for Implied).
Other shoots do not pay for the first 4 hours - Your only pay is for 1-on-1's. -- Not at  Homegrown Hotties !!! But You are required to pose Nude /Implied during the group shoot, (unless special arrangements are made with the Sponsor).

(2) You are NOT required to pose "Hustler" style but if you feel comfortable enough to do that, it is perfectly acceptable.

(3) Please do your own hair / make-up.  NOTE: If You turn out to be a "Dressing Room Camper", You will not be invited back.

(4) You may sell model releases for up to $20.00 each, $30.00 for Hustler Style.

(5) You will book your own 1-on-1 sessions, release included, at your own rate. (We recommend $40.00 per 30 minutes) but this rate is entirely up to you.

(6) You must work the whole group shoot in order to sell 1-on-1 spots. I will not allow you to arrive at 3pm and expect to work the 1-on-1 portion without working the group shoot.

(7) You will be provided a safe & friendly work environment.

(8) Photographers are NOT allowed to touch or Manhandle you in any manner without your permission.

PHOTOGRAPHER INSTRUCTIONS:

(1)If the Ratio becomes greater than 4 photographers to 1 Model, I will offer partial refunds to the photographers.  The amount will be determined solely by me based on the situation.

(7) Models will be selling releases for the group shoot for $20.00 ($30.00 for Hustler Style)

(8) You can bring your own lighting equipment, but I would at least suggest a pocket wizard or similar unit. (*) NOTE:
PLEASE limit it to 1 light & stand per photog during the group portion AND remember that Pocket Wizard only has 4 channels

Why do we suggest a Pocket Wizard?
It is to limit the number of cords that are lying on the ground so there is less of a chance of tripping over a cord

(10) Location Owner is Flexible, Time may be extended as needed.

(11) You must pay for the group shoot even if you do not participate in order to hire a model for 1-on-1's.

(12)We are no longer accepting PayPal services.  This company engages in censorship and I will not support this.
NOTE:  Please Do Not Use PayPal for this Event.  The Email address for Homegrown Hotties is: "laserbean@juno.com". I will allow you to pay at the door if you send me an e-mail first to get a reservation. If you abuse this privilege, it will not be available to you again.

(13)If You give me a Deposit or Full Payment and cannot make the shoot, Call in Advance and your reservation money will be transferred to the next event. - (If you are a no show, there will be no refund.  I have to pay the models whether or not you show up) No Direct Cash Refunds

(14)If you tie up a model with an after shoot 1-on-1 and then are a no show (Without a Phone Call), You are responsible for paying the model her missed 1-on-1 fee.  A simple phone call to the model or sponsor can fix this and the model can replace you on her schedule.

THIS IS A LISTING OF INVITED MODELS - Models will be added as they are hired and we will do everything in our power to insure that they will show-up: Every one of these models is real (not a figment of my imagination) and their Model Mayhem numbers are listed for you to check out their portfolios.  PLEASE DO NOT HARASS THE MODELS WITH SILLY MESSAGES. It is acceptable to contact a model to arrange a 1-on-1 slot in advance.

NOTE: Due to the overwhelming response to this event, there will be several of "Mr.Clean's" models on standby.

Will you be providing lights for photographers to use their "Pocket Wizards" with or are we to bring everything?

I have done two shoots at this location. I see that most guys use an on-board flash of some kind, usually with a diffuser. Flash on a bracket is even better.  If you can live with that you will be very free to move around and be spontaneous. There are, afterall, five different rooms where models will be posing - all at the same time. So if you want to get around easily in the mayhem, use on-board lighting.

But there are just as many photogs who bring their own powered strobes on stands, such as beauty dishes. I'm sure they get the better results, but they are less free to move around. These are usually the photogs who plan on doing 1-on-1 sessions after the group shoot. I have seen speedlights on shoot-through umbrellas too. I have seen battery packs for powered strobes as well as cords to plug into the wall. All flavors. Except perhaps very large rectangular softboxes. They would be unwieldy in this situation, though there is room for one or two of them in the garage studio with the paper backdrop.

So yes, you gotta bring your own lighting. There is one spot however, where you can get some very nice indoor available light photos, and that is the 'alcove', where the model is surrounded on four sides with window light:

http://cthompson.zenfolio.com/img/s2/v72/p1307895392-4.jpg

This last time I concentrated on that technique because I didn't want to be fiddling with light stands and such. (You always have to keep an eye on them lest they get tipped over. It can get crowded.) Here is what I came up with using available light (no flash), a reflector, and wide apertures:
http://cthompson.zenfolio.com/mercedes

This pic, for example, was shot through a 50/1.4 lens set at f/2.0, ISO 250. Yes it is soft, but hey...it's a nice effect.
http://cthompson.zenfolio.com/img/s4/v69/p1307556666-4.jpg

If you watch my movie (link above) you will see some of the lighting solutions used by the participants.

These are just my own observations, not official policy. You can inquire further to Michael Bean.

Thanks Clark for the very detailed explanation of the lighting set-up.  It was very helpful.

Pocket Wizards are available to rent if you call in advance to reserve them.  I only have 2.  $10.00 each to rent for the day.

Dayuum! All's I remember is seeing Torrid's post and thinking that it would be really good to see her at this event. The rest must have been driven by the Cosmos because it's all a haze until I read it this morning. (It's always a risk blogging or posting while I'm on a magic carpet ride, lol) But hey, it sounds like a great idea and I get to shoot two of my favorite models. So let's do this! I'll send you some pics later tonight Mike. You choose n let me know. And thanks!!!!

I've got some really neat plans for Klover's birthday.  We have a ton of beautiful models and lots of cake & ice cream.  Pizza, Soda & Chips.  How many models can say they spent their 21st birthday "nekkid" with their friends?

Who did you send messages to ?

You also must realize that I have no control over what the models do.  One of them dropped out tonight in favor of a higher paying job.  And she calls herself "Professional".

If the model is truly "Professional" they will always stay with what they schedule and book the other shoot on another day. There is one model, that once you schedule, the shoot is yours no matter what the other photographer offer. She now 43 and still modeling. Wow, I must getting old, I start working with her when she was 25. I guess you have to stay what you say and not piss people off, if you want to stay modeling for a long time.
