Theme: Red Carpet Gala 

The "Red Carpet" at award shows receives as much attention as the awards themselves. Iconic moments in award show fashion include Billy Porter's Christian Siriano tuxedo gown, Audrey Hepburn's simplistic Givenchy, Janelle Monae's shimmering Ralph Lauren, & Zendaya's lemon yellow Valentino. Men’s fashion has seen its own evolution on the Red Carpet. Traditional men’s suiting has always reigned as the popular fashion trend at award shows, but in recent years, styles have shifted where men have increasingly looked to bold colors, patterns, textures and modernized takes on the traditional suit. In other words, don't be afraid to get weird. For Red Carpet Gala fashion inspiration, visit Pinterest galleries HERE or HERE. Please remember, our fashion theme is not a costume. We celebrate diversity, body positivity, self-expression, style, and creativity. Let us know if you have any questions!

Models:

Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot.  Additional wardrobe will be provided on location for models to incorporate into their look by Radbird.  Models are welcome to visit Radbird's locations in Oakland or Berkeley during open hours to browse their curated collection of Red Carpet Gala inspired fashion (optional). They'll be giving away a prize to the model who gets most creative & engaging with their fashion (just for fun, slams are not competitions). Arrivals begin at 5pm.  Please try to arrive by 5:30pm, in time for a lighting demo by Nanlite USA. We'll have a space designated for models inside the Oakland Aviation Museum for changing and model's belongings. Check in, explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, practice shooting with Nanlite lighting, and meet other creatives. If you're feeling a little anxious or stressed when you arrive, The Massage Clinic will be offering compimentary massages. Introductions begin at 5pm. We begin each slam by pairing everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers in quick 10 minute sessions.

Photographers:

We appreciate it when photographers & videographers dress in sync with the vibe and rock the theme, but they aren't required to. Photographers should wear comfortable shoes and arrive with their camera ready to shoot.  Please try to arrive by 5pm, in time for lighting & gear demos. After checking in, browse Tamron's lenses, Nanlite's lighting, & Fujifilm cameras, all available to borrow on location. Looking Glass Photo will be available to assist. Prizes will be given away at the end to the participants who get most creative and engaging with Fujifilm, Nanlite USA and Tamron Americas gear (just for fun, slams are not competitions).  Explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, take a few test shots and chat with fellow creatives. Introductions start at 6pm. We begin each slam by pairing everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different models in quick 10 minute sessions.  If you're feeling a little anxious or stressed when you arrive, The Massage Clinic will be offering compimentary massages. Personal lighting and film photography are welcome but please tread lightly and check in with us before flying a drone. Photography assistants are required to purchase a general ticket.
