It's a Betta Lypse because we couldn't use "Vetta" Lypse... but thats what were going for... VETTA. This event will only be open to those with 50 or more accepted Vetta files in their portfolios (Agency does not count). *Our goal is to target professional photographers who are already passionate about shooting artsy stock with style. ***We can not guarentee that your images from the lypse will be Vetta files.
Todd (redhumv) and I will be working together to create the most creative, artsy, conceptual sets we can within our budget. Tickets will cost $500 each... this will help cover set building, locations, professional models and makeup, etc. We plan to rent all of our lighting, so you won't need to bring yours, but can if you would like.
Date: July 30th-31st 2010
Price: &500 per ticket. *Paid in full by June 1st.
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah Saratoga Springs, Utah
# of Attendees: 6-10
We plan to give each photographer an hour or so to shoot each set. Number of sets have not been decided yet (definitely 5 or more), and depends on number of attendees.
Photographers will not end up shooting the same model with the same wardrobe. So even though background sets may be shared, we plan to switch out models and/or wardrobe for each photographer.
Several models will be paid, some might be TFCD... and we also plan to trade up to 5 HIRES photos per model/per shoot. We will set up an FTP site where you can upload your shots for the models, or you can let us know if you will be personally sending them a CD. Since you will be the only one shooting that model with that wardrobe, this is highly expected.
01-26-2011 We are currently working on networking with local professional artists to help design sets for our lypse... and we recently had the privledge to meet Rachael Domingo. She is a fashion designer, and artist http://www.rachaeldomingo.com/ (mostly uder construction) ... She is going to be working on one of our sets/stations! Trust me, whatever she does will be WICKED cool
We also have a meeting scheduled with Dave Borba (http://www.daveborba.com) who is super excited to work on something larger scale with his artwork. He may be building a set using foam... and oh, we just happen to have a good friend that works at a foam recycle plant, hehe.
Not sure I will continue planning the event with only 6-7 photographers + Todd and I ... I think we had too many people cancel over the last week. To do what I wanted to do with it, we would need at least 12-15 photographers. With a smaller amount of people, I might be able to set up a smaller (but still awesome) event for less money per ticket ($500). We could actually have a few sets built at our house in Saratoga Springs (45 min south of Salt Lake City)... I would make it worth your time and money to come out. We have some pretty great artists that would like to be invovled. So one day would be artsy/creative, and the other day could just be stocky stock images around our house. To pull this off, I would need at least 6 people commited to come (10 max). I can lower the Vetta limit to 50+ files.
It's official, the lypse is on... and we are going to have amazing, awesome shoot opportunities to all who attend. Unfortunately Dave Borba got too busy this summer and is unable to work on a set... so Todd and I will be taking over that. Everything is in line, and going well... once the artists start bringing their sets and props out to our house, we will put up those teaser images
Friday July 29th: Social dinner BBQ, bring your own meat and drinks! Location: Our house...all attenedees, social tickets, models, and artists are invited. *We ilve 45 min from Salt Lake (where most of our models & artists live) so we are not really expecting to see them until the day of the shoots, but everyone is invited to this!!
Saturday July 30th: Family Photo Shoots. Each photographer will have one hour to shoot one family in and around our house. We have an amazing front yard, kitchen, living room, and trampoline in the back yard. Atendees can hang out while others shoot, or plan some site seeing around Utah Valley during their off time. Social tickets are welcome to hang out, watch, help, etc.
Sunday July 31st: Creative Artsy Conceptual Stock Shoot... this is what it's all about! We have amazing artists invovled creating several sets! Get ready for a spaceship in our backyard, a steampunk style set, a high fashion with Salt Lake's artist/wardrobe designer Rachael Domingo, and one more set still being decied. We have eight photographers, so the day will start around 10 am and go all night. Each photographer attendee will get one hour on each set. Social tickets are welcome to hang out, watch, help, etc.
**Social tickets are free but also welcome to send a donation of $25-$50. Thanks!

Oh wait, I can't make it in July 2011. I forgot I'm having a baby in June (I know, it's not the kind of thing you're supposed to forget). I think that means I'll be too busy to go to Utah.
