How about a competition ?

As there's lots of negativity on the forums and some people have some more spare time during the summer along with longer daylight hours how about a competition along the following lines:

Models & photographers who wish to enter put their names forward and are split into regions so less travelling.

Each photographer gets paired with a model from their region randomly (draw can be done by mods)

A random 'theme' for the shoots is also chosen from a list of submissions with everyone working to the same theme.

Each team of model/photographer then has until end of August to get together and submit 1 image of their interpretation of that theme. Nobody charges for their time.

Winner chosen by team of moderators (If Purestorm or anyone else wishes to donate a very small reward that would be good but not essential as just a bit of fun which would get people together).

It would mean you will get to work with someone you may not normally work with and people can be creative.

There could be a minimum 3 checkable reference criteria for photographers to ensure model safety as best we can and models work to their own levels but no adult.

Wouldnt take much organising.

Thoughts?

Good idea, but models and photographers might not want to work with who they are paired with, then it becomes awkward.
My name is "Lynn" or you can call me "Lynnie". Do NOT spell my name "Lynne" or I will smack you.

I can appreciate that and if you've a genuine grievance against who youre paired with we can sort out a replacement but if you've fallen out with nearly everyone in your region then its probably not worth entering.

I think it's a great idea.

I agree that it could become awkward if a model and photographer are paired together but don't want to work with each other for what ever reason, but then if that's the case then maybe they shouldn't enter because that is a possibility? Just my 2 pence worth though!

Without thinking too hard about it I can envisage a whole host of potential problems with that idea, and I bet it would be a nightmare for the moderators too. This is Purestorm after all, not Utopia.

I love the idea, however i am sure the facilities available to each photographer will vary greatly and would severly limit the range of photographers realisticaly able to enter.

Re who works with who.If  you cannot except the pairing given, do not enter.
You can't be late until you show up

Sounds like a really good idea could also bring in more potential work for models as you could piggy back your competition shoot with another shoot .
