Participation and the benefits of participating with our photography shootouts

If you are considering participating with one of our upcoming photography shootout events, first check out our Shootouts Events section for upcoming shootout events, which have their specifics. If you see something that you like, by all means, contact us at tampashootouts@yahoo.com for consideration!
As professionals who work careers, we are all aware of the value of things, and that few things that are offered for free are worth it, if they are even really free at all. This is different. Although our industry workshops, which are marketed through the Tampa Shootouts web site and our shootout events (they are sponsors, and participants are NOT obligated to buy anything, so don’t even think that our events are being used for something unethical such as a bait and switch. We would not do that to anyone! After all, we are what we do.), are NOT free, they are not shootout events, either. They are workshops, which is different. Our shootout events are indeed free of charge, especially since we do use them as working auditions to evaluate the professionals who participate for subcontracted jobs in our industry workshops and other subcontracted paying job opportunities. This, of course, is one huge benefit of participating with our shootout events. There are others, too.
Shootout events being offered for free, in this case, is the ultimate value, since the shootouts are being run by qualified professionals with experience in the industry making it in the business, and whom are still currently industry players. The entire point of these shootout events is for professionals to meet other professionals for the possibility of collaborations, as well as to have fun doing what we love to do: Photography, modeling, and whatever career that we work in. Participants with the shootouts are also considered, if a professional photographer, for membership in our professional photography association, the Tampa Photography Society. Professional models are considered for membership in our professional modeling association, the Model Dominion (we know that it sounds aggressive, but it fits well since the emphasis is on independent modeling, which means going out there and booking work without going through an agency, although smart independent models also use agency representation as a backup).
Although we cannot promise jobs or membership in any of these associations, participants are considered. If you’re really good at what you do, and you are professional, you may just obtain leads that will enhance your career! At any rate, we would like to meet, and work with, other professionals. By working together, we can bring professionalism and integrity to the Tampa Bay market!
We CAN promise some tangible benefits, such as free promotion as a participant on the Tampa Shootouts web site. The more shootout events that you participate in, the better promotion that you receive!
Other benefits include meeting other professionals who may be in the position to help your career. Participants are all encouraged to bring business cards, comp cards, and other promotional material to give to other participants. Photographers can find models to work with, and models can find photographers. Make-up artists and stylists, too, can find photographers who are in need of their services.
Of course, the networking and meeting is done solely at the risk of the participants. Tampa Shootouts and our affiliates will not assume any liability, in whole or part, for any interactions between participants. We do not endorse anyone, and, as a participant, you assume total risks and potential liability. One of the things that makes free shootout and networking events possible is the liability waiver, and all participants are bound by such waivers, as they are signed before the shootout events begin.
