Elementor #2526





The registration fee to attend is $250 per day, or $450 for both days. Come one day or both. I accept both PayPal and Zelle. The registration fee is just to get in the door, to have the entire property at your disposal for shooting, and to have access to these awesome models! Model fees and the boat signup fees are separate from registration fees. There will be no walk ups allowed each day of the event, the registration to attend this event closes at the end of the day on Friday, March 11.



Models will set their own shooting limits and rates, and photographers will book directly with models after they pay the registration fee. The model’s typical rates range from $100-$250/hr and $50-$125/30 min depending on the genre and the model. Sending a model a deposit to schedule at this event is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, although not all models will require a deposit to pre book.



We are doing 30-minute minimum pre booked time slots and 2 hour maximum pre booked time slots each day so that you may work with a variety of our talent who can all add a little something different to your portfolio! You may book more time with a model on the day of the event, only if she has availability in her schedule. Feel free to fill in your schedule on the day of the event after you meet these lovely girls in person, but keep in mind that a portion of their schedules will be pre booked in advance. The model’s remaining availability (if any) will be posted each day of the event so you may fill in your name to take a spot. There will be NO DOWNTIME for a model to take breaks once your time starts. This means you understand that your time slot includes the time it takes for modes to change wardrobe, the time it takes to change locations, set up your lights, etc. It’s suggested that you communicate your plan with the model ahead of time if you’d like to, arrive at the location early to make a game plan, and schedule the models accordingly if you need to take a break in between your shoots.



You may sign up for this event in one of two ways:

1. Though email

 Send me an email, including a link to your social media page, online portfolio, and the city you are based in, to be approved for admission. My contact email is: melissajeanbookings@gmail.com

Once approved, you will be given instructions on how to pay the registration fee. *NOTE – my contact email is not the same as the payment email*


2. Through our Meetup page

We have a private group on Meetup that I recommend everyone join, but am no longer making it mandatory to attend the events.  The benefits of joining our Meetup group include keeping up to date on information about our event, future events, and checking model’s updated availability on the specific event page. If you’re requesting approval to our Meetup group, please answer all 5 questions and include a link to your online portfolio or there will be a delay in your approval and I will probably try sending you a message through Meetup for more information.


No refunds for registration fees or model deposits after February 1, 2022. Failure to show up to the event or compensate models as promised will result in the removal of your membership of our Meetup group and denial of participation in any future events. Please confirm your attendance before registering.



It is suggested that you fly in on Friday, March 11 to ensure you’ll be able to arrive at the event on Saturday morning. You will be able to check into the event at any time on either day, but it’s suggested that you arrive early to scope the location out and get an idea of where you will want to shoot. You are welcome to arrive to the location 30 minutes before the event officially begins each day.




The closest airport in proximity to each location is the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, as it’s located 20 miles south of residence. It is suggested to reserve your hotel anywhere from Fort Lauderdale to Deerfield Beach, east of I-95. There is parking at the residence for 20 cars and there is a park at the end of the street for any additional cars. Using Uber/Lyft to and from the airport and the location would be an easy and smart way to travel from out of town.


Lunch will be provided to all attendees on both days and non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will also be available for the duration of the event.

Let’s have a fun and safe event while networking and building our portfolios in paradise this spring!
