First time shoot at this amazing new Mt. Baldy location, featuring 2 deep ponds and dark pine tree forest. This is a majorly dark shooting area with only sparatic locations of sunshine, and both ponds are over 10 feet deep. We have rented a cabin at this location for model changing and free refreshment station (munchies and drinks provided during the shoot), and it's a 1 minute walk away from all the shoot locations pictured.
This is a much easier to walk location with far easier parking access (but somewhat limited) than any of our previous Mt. Baldy shoot locations. There will be a 10 model/20 photographer shoot restriction at this shoot, maintaining a 2-1 photographer to model ratio.
Shoot meeting time for models is 10:30am (for free outfit selection), and 11am for photographers. Meeting place is the SM studios in Upland (message me for address), with a 15 minute drive to the shoot location. There will be carpooling to the shoot location from the SM studios.
The groupshoot session will start at approximately 12 noon, and continue until 4pm, with a 2 hour 'one on one photo session' starting at 4pm, finishing at 6pm. Everyone must be completely finished shooting and off the facility by 6:30pm. Dinner party to be held at nearby restaurant, 10 minutes away from shoot location.
Total photographer cost to attend is $60. Models receive free admission and some token gas money for attending. All models attending will also receive 3 free posing outfits from the SM studios wardrobe rack, and will get to keep those outfits at the end of the shoot. Model photos will be posted here as they are confirmed, with all models confirmed by Friday evening.
