Ok let’s address “the elephant in the room”…
We know our trips are not cheap compared to some of the pricing of other events. Of course we do try and offer a variety of options to suit a range of budgets. But there is a very good reason that our trips cost a bit more, we are looking for something more than a chain hotel resorts mobbed by tourists and restrictions or some generic house or even a suburban back yard with a pool. We are known for creating UNIQUE concepts such as “living, eating, changing shooting locations daily by travel on the cruise boats” and many more exclusive, unconventional/exclusive concepts (for example: “Learn Runway/Backstage photography during NY-Milan-Paris fashion weeks”).
These are trips you will remember forever!
Then there are THE MODELS…
The models that attend are serious, professional models who come to shoot and produce great images with the photographers. You will have the opportunity to shoot all SPONSORED models that you want to shoot with. You do not have to buy model releases from models – we’ll provide you copies. They will not disappear to go party or show up (if at all) the next morning hungover.
On this trip @SailWindjammer we’ll have TWO groups of models:
1) Models who PAYS BY THEMSELVES for airfare and/or accommodations and basically consider the trip as a vacation time/ shooting opportunity with photographers THEY WANT to choose/participate. These models do not, and should not, feel obligated to shoot with ALL photographers and they also feel they should get to choose who they shoot with since they paid for the trip by themselves.
2) Models who get SPONSORED by participating photographers/fashion brands/ WON our online casting before the trip.
Sponsored models obligated to shoot minimum one hour per day with/for their sponsors. Models are also required to do 2-4 hours per day in event designated shoots (workshop or an assigned shoot with a photographers) all other times are free for the models to relax & enjoy your time at exotic locations.
We are looking to create a fun environment with the central focus being on shooting for every trip we plan. As far as the photographs you take there is no expectation or pressure that you will deliver images, if you have experienced this in the past you know what we mean. Of course the models are thrilled when you do provide them but unlike other events that require photographers to edit a certain amount of images by a certain time we do not. SailWindjammer crew also provide 5 time a day meals/drinks ( Bloody Mary in the morning, Rom Punch @ 5pm, glass of Vine for the dinner) and you’ll get chance to dining out locally or purchase additional drinks/cocktails from boat bar or local places.
The bottom line is that we bring together amazing models and great Photo/Video crew at amazing locations and do not cut corners, fall short on expectations or under-deliver and we price our events accordingly.
We want to create The ultimate ADVENTURE TRAVEL shoot/networking/get published experience for our group.
Our trips are designed with one simple concept “to offer photographers UNIQUE CONCEPT of Adventure Travel with amazing models at amazing locations”. These trips are all about the photography (and video), we do not have contests or challenges or large parties to distract from the main objective of getting terrific pictures. Of course we do have fun, wonderful meals, a few drinks together, and generally hang out when we are not shooting but the main objective is to take advantage of the opportunity to shoot at the locations and models we have. Just to be clear we think events that offer contests and challenges are great, they just are not what we do.
Our DAILY planned events are designed to maximize shoot time. The typical day of shooting starts 6:30 am with a OPEN group shoot at a top deck boat location either at the beach/island we are landing at or out on one of our Island excursions. These shoots comprise of quick 5-15 minute one-on-one shoots with the models, by the end of the trip you should have shot every model at least once during the GROUP/Workshop type shoots. These one-on-one shoots serve two objectives, the first is you get to shoot with every (sponsored) model and the second is that you get to see what kind of photographer/model chemistry you have.
BUILDING YOUR PORTFOLIO
Working with professional models and the “up & coming” is important for photographers for several reasons the first is the quality of your images, working with an experienced, beautiful model instantly will take your work up a level just by virtue of the number of usable images you will get verses using an inexperienced model. Another important reason is that you can leverage their social media networks. By including these models in your online social media the public and prospective models will see you that you work with models they recognize and associate you with them. This is particularly helpful if you are trying to develop business in your home area.
Your networking vacation getaway is waiting.
