This section is intended primarily for the promotion of ¤ Model & Photographer Events Of Interest To Our Community ¤ Studio Open Days - Where Studio members Are Offering A Chance To View ¤ #ff0000;">Non-Profit* Group Shoots Open For All Members To Participate
The section is NOT intended for promotion of commercial 'Model Days' or 'Model Nights' or for General Studio Hire Business
If a Premium Model is participating in a Studio Model Day / Evening they should advertise in the Casting Calls. ***
#ff0000;">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 #ff0000;">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 #ff0000;">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 #ff0000;">non-commercial networking event open to #ff0000;">all members may do so in this section just so long as the above rules are followed. #0070c0;">Hire Studio account holders may promote #7030a0;">Model Days / Evenings in the relevant section. #0070c0;">Premium Model members may publicise #0070c0;">Model Days/Evenings they are running here. Events #0070c0;">supporting named #0070c0;">charities, subject to meeting certain criteria, may be promoted #7030a0;">here. Members seeking #0070c0;">charity sponsorship, subject to meeting certain criteria, may do so #7030a0;">here.
#ff0000;">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.Updated 21 Jan 2012 - If organising commercial events please note this associated topic:- ~§~ Events Facilitators ~§~
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.
