Theme: New Space Age
As mankind plans to colonize Mars, Voyager One leaves our solar system, and reusable rockets return to Earth, a New Space Age is upon us! Come celebrate with futuristic space travel vibes. Look towards metallic tones with bold pops of color and slick unnatural textures. For wardrobe inspiration, search "Outer Space Fashion" or "New Space Age Fashion" on Pintrest or #SpaceFashion on Instagram, watch recent pop culture like Mars, Intersteller, Moon, & Space Sweepers or share stories on Instagram. Portrait slams celebrate diversity, body positivity, self-expression, style, individuality and creativity. Let us know if you have questions about our theme and, as always, don't be afraid to get weird.
Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot. The Clothes Horse will be giving away a prize at the end to the model who rocks the theme with the most creativity. We'll have a space designated for wardrobe. If you'd like to bring an additonal item(s) to change into, please bring your own hangers for our clothing rack. Please try to arrive by 4:30pm. Check in, explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, practice with lighting from Focal Point Photography, meet other creatives, and browse wardrobe before introductions begin at 5pm. We begin each slam by paring everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers in quick 10 minute sessions.
