This section is NOT for advertising Model Days / Model Nights
it is intended primarily for publicising
Community Events or Studio Open Days or Group Shoots.

Group shoots are where groups of models AND photographers band together on a non-profit basis
to shoot and network at locations that they would not otherwise use.

Commercial Model Days / Nights are not Group Shoots
and where applicable will be moved to the relevant Studio Account sections if posted in here.

Reminder: This Section Is Intended For Non-Commercial Events ONLY.

If charges are being incurred to cover venue/location fees they must be shared equally
and the organiser should NOT pocket any profit or additional revenue gathered.
An explanation of where fees are going MUST be clearly intimated.

Events which are evidently COMMERCIAL in nature (i.e. where any member is earning) will be removed.

Model Day/Nights where models earn fees are NOT non-commercial and should currently be advertised
  by Premium Models in the Casting Calls section
or by Studio Account holders ONLY in
Studio Model Days/Evenings

Photographers looking to earn commission through promoting Model Days/Evenings
are NOT allowed to advertise this through their Purestorm Photographer account.

We have recently had a rash of attempts at posting commercial shoot advertisements
many described as being 'Group Shoots' when they were clearly anything but.

This section is intended for NON-COMMERCIAL events only.
The Castings facility exists for those seeking paid work

Posts in this section which are clearly COMMERCIAL advertisements will be removed without notice.

UPDATE - January 2010
We appreciate that many photographers selling portfolios are feeling the pinch at the moment
and so are trying to generate cash by organising / managing Model Days or Glamour Workshops.
At present ONLY registered Studio Account holders or Models may advertise such events but Matt
 is currently working on a seperate 'Service Providers' section to cater for commercial advertisers.

Recently we have had several members trying to find ways of getting around the rules
on promoting 'group shoots' or 'multi-photographer' shoots through Purestorm.
There are very sound reasons which we will not go into in public why we do not allow
the likes of 'events organisers' and 'charity promoters' to advertise through Purestorm.

Members wishing to propose a non-commercial networking event open to all members
may do so in this section just so long as the above rules are followed.
Hire Studio account holders may promote Model Days / Evenings in the relevant section.
Premium Model members may publicise Model Days/Evenings they are running here.
Events supporting named charities, subject to meeting certain criteria, may be promoted here.
Members seeking charity sponsorship, subject to meeting certain criteria, may do so here.

Any 'bending' of the rules to promote events which do not fall within site guidelines is unacceptable
If an option is not available, there is almost certainly a good reason why it is not being made available.

Would members please not add links to external Groups in this section.
Certain safety issues - including stalking and non-members passing off as members - have given cause for concern.
Please also remember that this section is intended for Purestorm Community events.
