Group photo sessions, in the past I’ve only done one and it went fine if not without a couple of bumps but it did put me off hosting one or even being a part of one, until now.
I’d seen a few calls for photographers for Rogue model managements studio days but they were either on days I couldn’t do or were in places I couldn’t get to easily on public transport. I’m not saying Candiland was easy to get to but it was easier than some of the others.
So what did I get for my money?
three outfits each
2 lighting set-ups
Over 5 hours
All of this was hosted by Candiland studio which was amazing. Outfits galore, multiple backdrops and an amazing set-up all easily controlled by a remote, which is now on my wishlist.
So the set-up was ready to go when we got there, so lights and triggers weren’t needed, but what did I have to take and what if anything would I take next time?
Really apart from a few more business cards there wasn’t anything else I would have taken. My trusty 24-70mm was just right and changing lenses seemed UN-necessary and wasted precious time shooting.

Honestly I had so much fun at this studio day, everyone was so nice, the set-up was fantastic, the models talented and the price was just right. I’ll definately be doing another studio day when I can maybe even see some of you at one in the future.
The only things I would have done differently is take some behind the scenes shots and set-up a go-pro in the corner but there’s always next time.
