WHAT: The Society of Models and Photographers (SMP) is a unique network of models, photographers and makeup artists dedicated solely to the creation of fine art photography in all formats, genres and styles. This includes, but is not limited to, fashion, pinup, experimental, art nudes, lingerie and fetish. The format of the events is of the trade (TF) variety usually in one hour intervals pre-scheduled by the models and photographers prior to the event.  This event is 18+.

WHEN: There is one day available for shooting…Saturday September 8th from noon to 8pm.  You can shoot as little or as much as you desire on that day, however you must sign up prior to the event in order to attend or schedule with others.  (Note: The sign up period ends at 12 noon EST on the Sunday before the event)  

WHERE: The location will be in the Leland Hotel in downtown Detroit, MI.  There are numerous rooms, levels, stairs and areas (mostly dilapidated) to shoot in.  Aside from the lobby, the shooting areas will be closed to the general public. The private shooting areas also include the City Club nightclub and the spacious marbled grand ballroom.  Click here to view photographs and layouts of these areas.

FEES: The prepay fees are $20 for models, $35 for returning SMP photographers and $50 for new photographers who have never attended a past SMP event as a model or photographer.  Any fees not prepaid will be an additional $5 at the door.  The prepay link will be listed in your signup confirmation email, which is sent after you sign up.  (Note: The prepay period ends at 12 noon EST on the Wednesday before the event)

MUAS:  There are no fees for makeup artists who agree not to charge kit fees for this event.  However, you will still need to sign up in order to schedule and participate.

ASSISTANTS: One working assistant is allowed to accompany and assist you for $5, which must be paid at the door.  Please note that assistants are only allowed to attend the event if they are actually assisting your shoots.  They are not allowed to photograph, model, do makeup or wander around the event.  Any assistant caught doing so will be removed immediately.

SECURITY: Floor monitors will be patrolling the various areas of the event venue to ensure the overall security and peace while keeping the public away from your creativity. They will also be strict in upholding the SMP Rules for your safety and the greater good of all participants so please be courteous and listen to what they may say. If you have any questions or concerns whatsoever, always bring it to their attention so they may help.

FORUMS: Once you are signed up, you may use the discussion board at the bottom of this page to announce your attendance to other participants and state what you are looking for.  You may also use this group to find ride/room sharers and generally communicate with others before and after the event.  You may also join the SMP Facebook Group to do the same.  For SMP specific questions, please contact us instead.
