Well, it was the most massive planning that I have ever poured into a workshop and after nearly 2 months of preparing, the Intro to Glamour and Beauty (Round 2) came to life this past weekend and from all accounts was a success. A few glitches, but everyone left on Sunday smiling and happy with the results.
We ended up losing two models on Saturday and one photographer due to the flu that seems to be rapidly spreading around, but those who ventured got two full days of awesomeness. I cannot believe we tried to stuff all this into a single day last fall. I should have my head examined…
We covered topics including Social Media, Safety, Contracts, Releases, Make-Up, Posing, Hair Styling, Model Agencies and even offered one on one portfolio reviews by some of the top talent in Nova Scotia with special guests Brent McCombs (Alter Ego Studios) and Andela Campagnoni (City Models / Lux Girls) joining us for appearances on Sunday.
We had a total of nearly 6 hours in the studio between two separate group photo shoots and from what I’ve seen so far, there are some great images that came from the shoots.
Krystal and I want to thank everyone who participated and already have a long list of things we want to add or improve for next time.
When will next time be? Well, we aren’t sure yet. But it could be as early as the fall of this year. Keep an eye on this blog as well as at Models Of Halifax and HMP-Halifax Models and Photographers groups on Facebook. Any date announcements will be made here and in those groups at the same time.
For those who couldn’t make it, here is a gallery of BTS images taken by my good friend James Vaughan who was visiting from Moncton for the weekend. Thanks Jim! 🙂
And finally, a huge thank you to those who sponsored our giveaways and door prizes…
