2008 Horror Theme Gettogether
The 2008 Horror Theme Gettogether will be held from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, on December 7th, 2008, in Chatsworth, California.
The facility is a large haunted house venue in the San Fernando Valley, just north of Los Angeles. The building measures 13,000 square feet as contains a wealth of sets within, including, but not limited to:
# Dining Room
# Upside-down room
# Boiler Room
# Various cages
# and a Hearse
This locale is primarily used as a haunted maze during October, and has many, many rooms throughout. Some sets are small and may only permit a few people at a time, but the sheer variety more than makes up for this and there are plenty of places to shoot.
Models will be signing a limited release allowing participating photographers to use the photographs for personal and portfolio use. You are welcome to bring your own release, if you so choose, and that arrangement will be between the photographer and the model.
Admission to the event for photographers is $100. Payment can be made through PayPal to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org , and needs to be made by 11:59 pm Wednesday night (December 3, 2008).
You MUST reserve your space ahead of time. For photographers who do not pay/reserve by the deadline, the price at the door is $120. So, please, let us know AHEAD of time.
Admission for models is free of charge. But please let us know if you are attending, even if with a photographer.
For all guests, please make sure you let us know ahead of time, so that we can coordinate the proper arrangements.
In the event that our Photography Gettogether is canceled by the hosts (in other words, us) then all funds will be refunded.
The deadline for reserving a place is 11:59 pm , December 3, 2008 (Wednesday night), so don't wait too long.
All guests need to check in upon arrival.
Photographers need to provide images to models, whether by email, website, CDROM, or print. These individuals are putting in time and talent into the event and deserve to see the fruits of their efforts.
Models MUST bring photo identification. No exceptions. Models will be sign a LIMITED release form, allowing for personal and portfolio use. If different arrangements are made between participating parties, this is fine.
Lighting equipment is not required for participants to bring, but is STRONGLY recommended. Please let us know if you are bringing studio equipment (stands, backdrops, etc), for safety's sake and so nothing "disappears".
Please do not rearrange the sets and props provided. These are not ours and they need to be left how we found them when we leave.
Food needs to be eaten OUTSIDE ONLY, please.
Please do not leave a mess (clean up after yourself).
A few suggestions:
Bring a portfolio. Professionals and amateurs alike would love to see your work and it is a great opportunity to network.
BRING LIGHTS! The natural lighting of the facilities may not be conductive to one's personal vision of the final images. Strobes, hot lights, TTL flashes, or even a lamp with a lightbulb can work.
If a photographer and model are engaged in a session, please ask permission before joining in.
Q & A:
Q: May I bring my own model?
A: Of course. Just please let us know ahead.
Q: Can this model work with only me?
Q: May I bring my husband / wife / bff / etc?
A: We would prefer professionals and amateurs only. Exceptions MAY be made, but events are intended to be limited to this crowd. Please ask.

Q: Is clothing / costuming available?
A: The attire is whatever the models and photographers bring along. The sky's the limit.

A: Nothing is set in stone and peoples' schedules are varied. Nonetheless, we will try to recruit as many as humanly possible.

A: It is fixed at $100.

A: Yes. If guests choose to make additional arrangements beyond the limited release, then that is fine.
