It is that time again. After a long winter I am looking forward to getting back outside and seeing the sun.

Hocking Hills Group Shoot
May 10, 2014   9 a.m.- 6 p.m.

This is an 18+ event.  You are not required to shoot 18+ but some people do, so it is not a good idea to have people bring someone that isn't 18.
I have 45 acres of private forest with many different backdrops sitting in the middle of the Hocking hills and thousands of acres of beautiful natural beauty. The flowers and dogwoods should be in bloom then.
There is a $20 fee for photographers, models and MUA's are free. Lunch and drinks will be provided.
If you have flaked in the past you must put up a $40, non refundable deposit if you want to attend. If you have flaked twice, don't bother to sign up. WHEN YOU COMMIT AND DON'T SHOW UP, IT SCREWS EVERYTHING UP FOR EVERYONE. WE REALLY DON'T NEED THAT.

If you have never been here before, we have lots of very talented people show up. About half of the attendees are regulars and half are new. Meeting new people and networking is what it is all about.
It is a good chance for new models and photographers to build on their portfolios and meet new people to work with. The last 2 events we had photographers from Mich., Pa., Ky, and all 4 corners of Ohio.
Sharon and Jane will be making lunch again. There will be a cookout on Fri. night.
There are 3 cabins available for the weekend at $100 each. That is $50 less than normal. I prefer to rent them to people involved with the event. There are plenty of spaces available for tents and campers and electric hookups. There is no charge for camping. The cabins sleep 4. If you really want to come, we will find a place for you to sleep.
Cabins are first come, first served and require a $50 deposit to reserve them.

The event hours are from 9-6 but many people get together before and after and for those staying the whole weekend, there is shooting on Fri. and Sun.
We hope you will come, have a productive time, meet great people, relax, and have a good time.

If you want to attend please state your intention by making a comment on the thread and I will add you to the list on this page.

After you sign up, put a schedule on here but preferably on your port page.  Example::

9-10 Cascading Falls
10-11 Open
11-12 Open
12-1  Lunch
etc. This way you can see when others have open slots and they can do the same with you. Don't hesitate to ask someone for a slot if you want to work with them and then edit your post by putting in their name when you fill a slot. If no one flakes , most people usually have a full schedule.

If you want to see pics taken at past events, look on my port page in my Lists for Hocking Hills group shoot. There are hundreds of pics there.

Count me in cabin included.  Always a great time.  For models that might attend, I prefer to fill up my schedule from either end towards the middle of the day.

We have 3 months. I put it up a little early because I had people asking about it.

Those of you that are maybes, I will put you on the list as soon as you are for sure.

Ken D and Werner, we look forward to seeing you again.

Get the word out and lets have a good turnout.

Just a note to any models considering attending, don't read too much into the "18+ event".  I would estimate that, on average, slightly less than half of the models attending are open to posing nude.  You will be under no pressure to go beyond your personal limits.  I can vouch for the regular photographers and if any of the new photographers try to push you, just tell Jim & he'll give them a size 12 leather enema (a big boot up their butt).   smile  seriously though, that won't be tolerated at this event.  We want the models to go home happy & ready to come back for the next one.

Feel free to pull up the thread from last year's shoot to find some models to contact for references.  Here are the links.  Please be sure not to post on the old threads.

The event is listed as "18+" because there is enough nude photography going on that we can't have minors on the location.

Well said All Yours. We want this event to be fun and comfortable for everyone.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. There is no such thing as a dumb question.


WOW, 2 days and all 3 cabins are rented.This is a new record.

I drove her home last fall.  She isn't too far off of I-71.  If your schedules match, it should work out.

Being the "Mom" model, And a veteran to Jim's shoots, I can vouch for the "Fun and completely comfortable"!

I'm a non-nude, THANK GOODNESS, and so is Alii Nicole, my daughter, and we LOVE these shoots.

It's like one huge family: the models, hostesses (Jane and Sharon--the AMAZING CHEFS), the photographers, and the host (Jim).

Right now, it looks like I still need a 2-3 and 3-4 time slot.  After that, I'm taking it easy the rest of the day.  If any photographers need someone to hold a reflector or anything between 4-6, let me know.  I'll be happy to assist anyone.
