We will be hosting a beach photography shoot in Port Aransas, TX on May 13, 2017. Photographers will begin shooting promptly at 6:00am. Debbie, Mike, Becca (HMUA) and models plan to arrive the night before.

Photographer participation fee is $99+tax. The participation fee includes event permit, 2 paid models participating, HMUA and light set ups. Nothing else is included. Every vehicle requires a beach parking permit which costs $12 and is available at most gas stations in the area.

Transportation is not provided. A few photographers may get together and make arrangements to carpool. Please contact Debbie if you’re interested in carpooling down to the location. If you have a vehicle with an empty seat, please let Debbie know. If someone rides down with you to the location, that person must return with you.

2 paid models are included in the fee. They will be available to shoot beginning 6:00am while photographers will take turns shooting as per the schedule.

Model selections: Model selections are based on a specific criteria and the models have passed the audition requirements.

Additional Models:

Additional models may participate for TFP. TFP models aren’t included in the fee. If any photographer shoots a TFP model, the photographer must provide at least 1 professionally edited, high resolution printable to at least 8″x10″. We expect to have 2 paid models and 2 TFP models.

Skipping models:

If a photographer does not wish to shoot a particular model, whether paid or TFP, the photographer is able to sit his/her turn out but the flow of transitions must be kept to schedule.

Models will begin getting ready at 4:00 am to be ready to shoot by 6:00 am. Setup will begin at 5am on the beach on the morning of the 13th.

You will not be required to provide paid models with any photos. TFP model requires photos to participate. If you do not wish to provide a photo to the TFP model(s), do not photograph her/them. If a paid model wants a photo you have taken, then you must make arrangements with the model to purchase photos directly from you. If a TFP model wants to purchase additional photos you have taken, then you must make arrangements with the model to purchase photos directly from you.

Photographer turns will be based on a lottery draw.
We are allowing 15 photographers to participate. Each photographer will draw a number to determine his/her place in line to begin. There will be 4 groups, 4 photographers per group. Your number will determine which group you’re in. If we receive a huge request, we will add an additional setup to accommodate 4 more photographers.

For photographers who arrive late, he/she will draw a number and be placed in the corresponding group and will begin to shoot when it is his/her turn. Late photographers will not have additional time to shoot. The rotations must continue to flow smoothly.

There will be light setups. 2 setups will be using strobes and 1 set up will be using speed lights.

The shoot will take place rain or shine. Therefore there are NO REFUNDS. Once you have paid for your slot, it is confirmed. Spots are not refundable, transferrable and cannot be used for future events. If there is a hurricane or tropical storm evacuation, we will try to reschedule for another weekend.

Rain– If it rains during our time to shoot, we will shoot when the rain subsides. If we must wait a while, we can all wait at the rental house until the rain or storms pass. Stopping the shoot can only be determined by the host.

High Winds – We can still shoot with high winds (under 35mph) but modifiers cannot be used. Light modifiers can only be used for winds 20mph and lower. If the wind exceeds 35mph, we will need to wait until the high wind subsides. Stopping the shoot can only be determined by the host.

SUNRISE – what to expect:
For the sunrise portion of the shoot –

On a cloudy morning, we may not see the sunrise but will continue to shoot as the daylight starts to begin.

On a mostly cloudy morning, we may have a limited amount of time to catch the sun rising in the background and we will make an assessment at that time how much time each photographer will have to shoot for his/her turn.

On a partly cloudy day or no clouds, sun rising should be a good 45 minutes. After the sunrise, we will continue to shoot with more time allotted per photographer.

We must have a minimum of 7 photographers signed up by April 16th 11:59PM. If we do not get 7 photographers signed up by the cut off time, all photographers who have paid will receive a full refund.

Companions are allowed as long as they are not shooting. Only paid participants are allowed to shoot the models, even the TFP models.

Accommodations are NOT included in the participation fee. There are a few hotels in the area. Search sites like to find rooms. The cheapest I found was Seaside Motel on Port Aransas Beach. And its cheap, good for a place to sleep and shower, no bells and whistles. Rates are ~$92 per night.

Mike, Debbie, and Becca (HMUA) have rented a house on Mustang Island. The house is located about 15 minutes from the shoot location. The shoot location is on Port Aransas Beach.

Special Needs: There will be no assistance available for those with special needs. Please bring someone with you for assistance.


We will set up the lights in the early morning hours before sunrise.

The End-

Once our shoot is done, photographers and models are welcome to make arrangements to shoot on their own time.

Similar to project night, photographers may not use a tripod, light meter or additional lighting. These items prevent a smooth transitions between photographer turns.

Only the photographer shooting may speak to the model while he/she is shooting.

The lights must not be adjusted, especially during the sunrise portion. Use the prep time to adjust your camera for proper exposure.


Research! Before the shoot, learn your camera settings…learn the poses you would like your model to try. It is not recommended to learn your camera settings on a shoot like this. There will probably not be anyone to help teach you on how to work your camera.

This event is not limited to any age. We ask that if you are participating as a model or photographer, please DO NOT bring children as you will be focused on the shoot.

IMPORTANT: Limited to 4 model participants, and 16 photographers.


What we do on Project Shoots: Group of photographers get together to shoot a certain style of photography We’ll have multiple setups to shoot. Come join us! Open to all levels of photographers. For this particular shoot, we ask that have an understand how to change your shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.

For those of you that have joined, thank you for choosing to participate in the photo shoot event! We look forward to seeing you there!
