This thread has been created to give members an opportunity to publicise modelling-related charity fundraising events they are organising or are closely involved with. However to prevent misuse it is a Locked thread and only Moderators can create or edit posts.

#ff0000;"> Be aware that before starting a post in here Moderators may require that the member organising the event provides proof that the named charity has actually approved the fundraiser and/or the use of their name in association with it.

Note conventional Group Shoots where ALL members of the community are invited to attend and where only DONATIONS to charity are called for may (subject to approval)  still be promoted in the Community Events section but events where ¤ set fees are being charged or ¤ where non-member photographers are being invited to shoot Purestorm models or ¤ where the event is NOT open to all members should not be advertised in there ..... even if the proceeds are intended for charity.

Note that ALL monies raised through Charity Events must be donated to the named charity
and that events where the organiser pockets the fees and passes over a 'donation' are unacceptable.

Charity day on the 11th August

organised by and held at
Derbyshire ~ Barlow between Sheffield & Chesterfield
in aid of The Disabled Photographers Society

a registered national charity founded in 1968.

Tthis will be held the same as all the other ones I have done please invite anyone you know.

It starts at 10am untill early eavening quite a few people will be here on the day. parking will be in the field as the carpark is used. Each studio will be set up for you to shoot in . Also this year we will have a 20x6 metre Marquee in the carpark this will also have 2 sets in and lighting. My car will be valeted for you to shoot models on that also.
the day is divided up into 30 min s...lots for each studio. All you have to do is put your name down for a studio of your choice and pick your model. You then get that slot and model for £10 for the 30 mins. this is how the money is raised. Models do not pay anything. It is a good event to do some networking so bring your portfoilo if you have one.

there will be free drinks and some food. but feel free to bring some along it all helps
We will also be holding a raffel for prizes like free studio time and vouchers for shops.
Last year we collected over £700 which goes to help people with disabilitys to enjoy there photography.

Thankyou and I hope to see you all here on the day

Charity Open Day at Ekegance Photography Studio.
(Date To be Announced)

202 Manchester Road,
Lancs BL3 2QS

Photographers and Models wanted.
I am holding a open studio day for my local hospice. The day is free but if you can afford a donation it would be gratefully received. I dont care if you put 10p or £10 in the honesty box, it all helps towards my £1000 target to buy a special recliner.

Whats in it for you!
... You can pose up to any level you want to shoot. Photographers will send you the images via email or publish on your sites when edited. You can swop details and network also leading to bookings with togs.
You get to shoot all the models who turn up for shoots on the day. The only rule is you have to let me download your images from your card on the day to give to the models for their time.
There will be 3 sets and if the weather is fine an area to shoot outside.

Whats in it for me.
Every penny raised goes to buy a recliner for Bealy Hospice. The only thing I get out of this day is for me to showcase my studio

We are organising a charity event for comic relief on Friday March 15th 2013 - 6pm to 10pm at
TipTop Photography Ltd (Studios)
#000000" face="Tahoma, Arial, Verdana" size="2">199 Warstone Lane
Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, B18 6JR

Photographers and Models wanted.

Whats in it for you!  
There will be 4 different sets, all shooting at the same time to allow maximum photography to take place throughout the evening.  Models will swap between sets.

You can pose up to any level you want to shoot (upto implied nude) and any outfits of your choice.   You do not have to make a financial donation (although this would be nice), your donation comes from you giving your time free of charge.  In return, you will get a selection of images from each photographer who photographs you on the night.

You will have the opportunity to photograph as many of the models you llike throughout the evening; in return, there will be a cost of £20 and the only committment you have to make is to send each model you photograph at least 1 or two edited images from the evening.

#000000" face="Tahoma, Arial, Verdana" size="2">All money raised will go to Comic Relief.

If you would like to attend the evening, please message me to confirm your place (both models and photographers).

Charity Shoot Day plans


So I am planning a non-profit shoot day for charity and I'd like you to help me out in the research process so I don't completely flop!

What I would like is a normal shoot day format, where photographers pay for my own and possibly other models time but instead of us pocketing the cash we donate it to charity

I have created a survey
I'd be grateful if you could answer the questions, its mainly aimed at photographers but models are usually savvy about these things too

Comments below are welcomed!
