A model told me last year that a photographer had cancelled a paid shoot with her because he could 'shoot her for nothing at a group shoot'

With that sort of thinking / comment its not surprising models arent responding in the way they might once have done

From my point of view we have had some excellent group shoots over the last few years around here. All models got the requested images, everyone met some new contacts and socially they have been a good laugh. Probably everyone attending learnt something.

As for the point about paid shoots being cancelled, not many paid models do group shoots for that very reason, along with the fact that they have experience now so don't need to do these. These are aimed more at the newcomers and for the social aspect. Shame it's not happening now but i'm sure we could arrange another with some better planning!

I agree a lot with what has been said about group shoots. Myself and two other photogs used to have regular 'not-group' shoots at Mayfield Studio in Newcastle. Where we book the studio for the day and either cast or specifically invite models to come along. There is non of the mess of group shoots as each photog shoots the models he or she booked. Again used for new models but plenty of experienced models came along too. We would have MUAs on board and it was just a great social event more than anything.
The next one is next Saturday (with two different photographers) and I couldn't be more happy with the 3 models I have booked

Hey ...just browsing this thread and if you have. I models interested why don't you book one or two for the shoot?

I can't see it costing much if there are loads of photographers ...?

Just a suggestion:

Like most such events, few models appear to be willing to attend just for images.
We think it is safe to say it has died through lack of interest (see above) so are Locking
If any of our registered studio owners in the area is watching, maybe this might be an opportunity to lay a formal event.
