Guideline now replaced by : G09 ~§~ Creating A Casting Call ~§~
Updated 30th March 2012 - please read this revised Guideline :-
~§~ Model Days/Evenings section - Please Read Before Posting ~§~
 


I'm sure many of you read the Relaxation of the Casting Call Rules thread.

As a result of listening to our valued members, we have now made provision for relaxation of other parts of the site. The idea is to make things less complex, less confusing and create more flexible provision. In the past, many members have found the systems in place too restricting because they didn't fit in the right pigeon hole.

It would be impossible to legislate for everything without making things very restrictive. For that reason, please bear in mind that Purestorm reserve the right to remove any casting call or forum thread it feels is inappropriate or used in a way not intended by Purestorm.

Please also bear in mind that there might be teething problems during this transition and that some amendments maybe made.

We are sure that the vast majority of our members will welcome these changes. If however you have any questions, concerns or feedback, please don't hesitate to add to this thread or use the Contact us link.



Casting Calls System

Many members have expressed confusion and frustration at the casting call system with many finding it too restricting.

As of now, all members can use the casting call system to seek work with all other individual members. For example, models can now seek another model or MUA. Any TF collaborations between non-photographers will of course need to seek the photographers* agreement with the offering of images. I'm sure the vast majority of members have the maturity to use the system responsibly and repay the trust we are showing in relaxing these rules.

The only main restriction is as before where you must be an upgraded member to seek paid work. However, please bear in mind the following:

  1. Please don't post post casting calls on behalf of others.
  2. Please only post castings where you will be working (i.e. shooting) with the person you are seeking.
  3. The casting call system should only be used for modelling photo shoots.
  4. The casting call system should not be seen as a 'free-for-all' platform for advertising anything other than model shoots.
  5. The casting call system should not be used for group shoots or model days.***
  6. Casings for Camera Club shoots may only be posted from Camera Club Custodian profiles and must offer paid work.
  7. Admin reserves the right to remove any casting calls that it feels is inappropriate use of the system.
  8. Please bear in mind that during this transition to a more relaxed system, some tweaks to these guidelines may need to be made.
  9. A new formalised casting calls system guideline will be produced in due course.

Commercial Group Shoots/Model Days:

(Please note that this is still being set up)

Under the previous system, only studio account holders could post such threads. In reality, many models and photographers wish to organise their own model days but had to get the studio owner to post the thread. This was an extra workload for the studio owner and also made it harder for the organiser to co-ordinate things.

Provision has now being made for upgraded models and photographers to post threads in the Studio Model Days/Evenings forum. The forum section to be used is to be confirmed.
Please bear in mind the following:

Please don't post forum threads on behalf of others.
Please only post threads where you will be organising the model day event.
This forum section should only be used for model day photo shoots.
This forum section should not be seen as a 'free-for-all' platform for advertising anything other than model days.
Admin reserves the right to remove any thread that it feels is inappropriate use of the forum.
Please bear in mind that during this transition to a more relaxed system, some tweaks to these guidelines may need to be made.
A new formalised  guideline will be produced in due course.
Photography Tutorials and Workshops

Provision has now been made for upgraded photographers to post in the
Tutorial Sessions forum section.
Please bear in mind the following:

Please don't post forum threads on behalf of others.
Please only post threads where you will be organising and running the event.This forum section should not be seen as a 'free-for-all' platform for advertising anything other than photography tutorial sessions and workshops.Admin reserves the right to remove any thread that it feels is inappropriate use of the forum.Please bear in mind that during this transition to a more relaxed system, some tweaks to these guidelines may need to be made.A new formalised guideline will be produced in due course.
Camera Clubs Photo Shoots

Only Camera Club Custodian profiles may post casting calls for models for camera club shoots and must be offering paid work to the model.

Ok although the rules on casting calls may have been relaxed a bit
That does NOT mean that we now allow G/B or Gonzo
we NEVER will   http://www.purestorm.com/forum/readThread.aspx?id=29225

We have, in the last few days had to suspend a few models that thought they could now do this
Also a couple of photographers that thought they could now seek models for this level

please dont advertise for these levels
your account will be closed
Thanks for reading this

[now you can get back to reading something a tad more exiting}

Cheers guys n girls

Will members please read the "do's and dont's'" that Mike has put here

The rules may well have been "relaxed"
But... we are getting many members [particularly models] thinking they can post for just about anything
from "parties" to group shoots, to car shows etc etc
This is not permitted ...

Many thanks
