We NEVER take a percentage of your 1-on-1 or Model Release money.
NOTE: A hard working model should be able to leave our shoot with an average of $300.00 for the day

(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.

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

(7)Pictures of the Location will be posted on my profile page soon (MM 21405).

(8)
Alcoholic Beverages / Drugs are not permitted at this event.

If you have questions about the shoot, please feel free to call me at (951)214-8023 Cell or MM# 21405

[b]MODEL INSTRUCTIONS:


(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 - For those events, your only pay is for 1-on-1's. -- But you are not required to pose Nude /Implied during the group shoot. 

(2) Even though we require you to pose nude / topless for our group shoot, 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.
PLEASE BRING A TOWEL AND A PLASTIC BAG FOR YOUR WET CLOTHING WITH YOU. THERE IS A POOL AT THIS LOCATION.

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

(7)
Photographers are NOT allowed to touch or Manhandle you in any manner without your permission.

(8) As per the invitation letter which you all will receive - if you are 1 hour late, your base pay will be reduced by 25%.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME.

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.

(2) Photographers limited to 30. This will be supported by at least 9 Models. 

(3)
Photographers are NOT allowed to touch or manhandle the models in any way without their permission.

(4) Registration $80.00 in advance.

(5) If you are a member of the New Faces Camera Club, Your Registration will be $70.00 -- You may join the NFCC for $35.00 per year at this event or any other NFCC event.

(6) If you bring a new Photographer who has not been to our event, You will get in for 1/2 price as long as he pays full price. If you bring 2 newbies, your entry is FREE.

(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. Our Insurance Company says we must keep powered Flash Units a minimum of 15 feet from any swimming pool.

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

(9) For Private 1-on-1 shoots between 3:00 and 5:45 pm, you may book your favorite model(s) in 30 minute increments at a rate of approximately $40.00 including release. You may not book the same model for more than 2 periods./b]

(10)

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

(11)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 Maidens in Paradise 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.

(12)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

(13)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.

[b]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.

ATTENTION MODELS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS:

I discovered something about MM today.  In posting the thread, I inadvertently made the "id" part of the address into "ID".  The address works but not to my site.  It goes to a webcam advertisement.  The address has to be "id" in order to work properly.  Thank You.

We'll try and make the best of your leaving. Hopefully Chrissy Marie will console us photographers by allowing herself to be booked for cash paying photo sessions. It will help us photographers deal with you riding off into the sunset. Oh ya and a early am bump for Mike.

I haven't been to one of Mike's shoots in like 10 years but I'm planning on coming Sat. and looking for a model that shoots Hustler style. If you want to do a Hustler style one on one session message me back so we can discuss rates and figure out what time slot you have open.
