Shooting like a pro

At each event we will issue you with a schedule stating your shoot times, please ensure you are available as your spot will not be held for you! If you’re not the designated shooter please put your camera down and socialise! Nobody likes an over the shoulder shooter, it’s distracting for the models and generally not cool.

Arrival Times

Please arrive 5 minutes early for events, you can arrive earlier but please wait outside of the building as we won’t be ready to receive you. We are usually perfecting things right up until the last moment! 🙂
