The Arizona ShootOut - Phoenix, AZ - November 15th-18th, 2013

Beautiful nude models... awesome locations... great weather...

Although we have called our event the 'Arizona ShootOut' for over 10 years,
our event is based on one-on-one shooting.


We always have an amazing lineup of nude models, you won't want to miss this.

Spend a weekend shooting beautiful models in warm sunny Arizona. The locations are a photographer's
dream come true. an 'old west' town set, old buildings, desert vegetation, great scenery... it's all going
to be there waiting for you.

For pros and beginners alike, the Arizona ShootOut is a great chance to add some killer shots to
your book. It's the perfect opportunity to meet and photograph some of the models you've seen
and heard so much about here on MM... with incredible photographic possibilities.

This is a great event to get some unique images! All the images in my portfolio were taken at
past ShootOuts and there are literally hundreds of awesome unique images here on MM that
were taken at past Arizona ShootOuts!

We are expecting a 3 to 2 photographer-to-model ratio.
Our fall ShootOut promises to be an experience to remember.

8am to dusk Saturday and Sunday. And a Friday evening meet-and-greet!

There will be 2 or 3 photo workshops/seminars over the weekend and there will always be someone to answer
your photographic questions. And you and the models will have plenty of time to book private shoots.

And it's just a short leisurely drive out I-10 from California! smile

Just got your invite (thank you, by the way.)

Trying to figure out how I could make this work.  I could make a work trip of it, if I could find people (at least 2 talks/day to justify the travel cost, probably) willing to sit down and discuss their life/health/disability/ltc insurance/retirement plans/whatever with me.  Is this a situation in which that type of thing might work out or do I need to pull out my schedule book and see whether I could make it a non-work-trip?

Also, holycrap, Shaun's going to be there?  Might be worth the trip just for that.

I see your event mentions that photos can only be used for self promotion by the photographer. You do realize that as soon as a photo is created, the photographer owns the copyright which allows them to be used in any manner. That includes selling them. There is no need for any document to make it legal. Photographers would not have to work out anything with models in regard to that. It is an inherent part of copyright. I find this is common for events like this and find it to be totally ignorant of the law and quite insulting, as well. If I'm paying the models, as well as a fee to attend an event, I expect to be able to use the images any way I can, including selling them. Granted not every photographer is a pro, but I would want to make my money back from the event and hopefully, ultimately, a profit. That's how I make a living.

You're not paying the models unless you're paying for their time after the regular group shoot, then you can get a model release signed. That's when the models make their profit. You get to see how the models work during the group shoots.

I find it surprising that, as a pro, you do not have a basic understanding between the difference between copyright and usage of a model's likeness for commercial publication. The latter is what a model release is for. Model releases vary in language from limited to all-emcompassing. The language used in the group shoot model release which is signed by each model and provided to each photographer allows for self-promotion, not commercial sales. This has NOTHING to do with copyright. They are separate issues.

Frankly, you are just flat-out wrong in stating that by simply creating a photo that you are entitled to publish "in any manner". Civil liability and privacy laws both limit usage. Your statement is both off-topic and irresponsibly inaccurate.

Why, or more importantly how, is this news to you as a professional?

FYA/E (for your amusement and education) Google: model sues unauthorized usage
Look at how many multi-million dollar lawsuits have arisen from the practice that you espouse.

wow. just wow.

copyright is covered by federal law. and most states have right to privacy (or publicity) laws that cover what people's images can be used for. if what you stated was even close to being true there would be no reason for releases at all, would there?

go post that here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=905997
and see what kind of response you get. lol

if somebody wants to sue you for using their images and you have a release, they are probably going to move on. if you don't have a release you are probably going to have to get a lawyer. tell the lawyer you have the right to use the images any way you want. maybe he won't charge you anything. haha

in NY for example (which is where I'm from), it's also a misdemeanor to use a person's likeness for purposes of trade without a release:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?threa … st16634795

were you around when the plaintiffs won this money from compuserve? do you even know about it? photos sold from a group shoot.
http://www.a-w.org/compuserve.html

no release = settle for a million dollars.


where's a forum guide when you need one? smile
