About the Event

Theme: Geek Chic

Geek chic style is all about embracing your inner geek, but with a fashionable twist. The style celebrates clothing and accessories that are classically nerdy, like thick rimmed glasses, knee high socks, bow ties, statement T-shirts, cardigans, Birkinstocks, ankle-length trousers, ect.  For further inspiration, search "Geek Chic" on Pintrest and share stories on Instagram (mention us and we'll share). Portrait slams celebrate diversity, 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.

We appreciate it when photographers 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 3:30pm.  Explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, take a few test shots, and meet your fellow creatives. We'll be giving away a prize at the end to the photographer who gets most creative and collaborative. Introductions start at 4pm. We begin each slam by pairing everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different models in sessions limited to 10 minutes. Videography, off camera flash, and film photography are welcome but please check in with us before flying a drone. Photography assistants are required to purchase a general ticket.
