Greeting friends. Shutterjunkie Photography is proud to present Photo Fest 2013.
In case you are unaware what Photo Fest is, it is a gathering of photographers, models, make-up artists and hair stylists. It is a chance to network with folks in the model/portrait photography community, exchanging ideas, honing skills and meeting new people. This is the second year, with close to 200 people attending over the four days. The Cedar Beach Resort on North End rd. is booked, as well as many planned location shoots across Salt Spring Island. The event is put on by Shutterjunkie Photography Studio, inviting members of the Vancouver Island Models and Photographers ( VIMP ) group. Search on Facebook for the group page. VIMP membership is from across Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. This is an ever growing group, with close to 1500 members.
Photo Fest is for members of VIMP and anyone else interested in model/portrait photography, modelling, make-up and hair styling. It kicks off Friday afternoon at3 p.m. at Shutterjunkie Studios , located at 251 Fulford-Ganges rd. The general meeting takes place Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. at the studio. Those interested in participating should attend the general meeting to register.
Over the course of the weekend, there will be studio shoots, Sunrise and Sunset location shoots, costume/theme events and spontaneous photo shoots all over the island !
Don't be intimidated, this event is for everyone, from entry level amateurs to widely recognized professional photographers. If you are interested in the art of model/portrait photography, modelling, make-up, styling, costuming, lighting or anything else, this is your chance to meet like minded people in the community.
If you wish to join, please come to the general meeting on Saturday. Bring your camera, contact cards to exchange with those you wish to work with so that images can be distributed, your cool attitude and your willingness to try something new and have some fun !
