(Nude in Nature Photo Art Haven)
Camp Ramblewood, Darlington, MD
Friday, Saturday & Sunday — August 12th, 13th & 14th
All model participation is subject to the approval of the organizers.
MODELS PLEASE NOTE: NiNPAH is a NUDE event, our photographers are interested in shooting material that may occasionally include clothing or lingerie, but will expect nude models. If you are uncomfortable posing nude in front of one to dozens of photographers, fellow models and staff, NUDE in Nature, and NiNPAH in particular, are not for you.
Models have a choice of THREE types of ticket:
A) Pay only $18.02 (+tix fee, total $20) and do a total of two hours of modeling, as assigned, in exchange for entry. You will NOT get paid for those sessions, but you may receive tips, which you keep. The two hours of exchange modeling will be assigned when you sign up. Other than those two hours, your time is your own. You can work with any photographer and keep all that you earn. (no charge if not chosen). Non-transferable & non-refundable. Models initially turned down may be chosen later on. We do have some general guidelines that all models must follow. Please see below.
B) Pay $120. (+tix fee) and your time is your own. Charge as much or as little as you like and keep all that you collect. (no charge if not chosen). Non-transferable & non-refundable. Models initially turned down may be chosen later on. We do have some general guidelines that all models must follow. Please see below.
C) Pay $108. (+tix fee). for a SATURDAY ONLY ticket, and your time is your own. Charge as much or as little as you like and keep all that you collect. (no charge if not chosen).

When you buy these early bird tickets, in addition to having faith, you are saving money. More importantly, you are letting models & other photographers know that you believe in our style of outdoor nude photography, and that you plan to be there. That will help convince models to attend, and having more models (particularly new faces) will prompt additional photogs to attend. We need you to be the first, we need you to lead the way!
although many of the models will be different, the shooting areas will be the same.
❦ ❦ ❦
Our target is 80 models and 240 photographers. There is no assurance that we will meet our rather ambitious goal & there is a possibility that we will exceed it; however, we will try to maintain the 1 to 3, model to photographer ratio. As envisioned, most of the modeling will be "one-on-one;" and around 10% of model time will be spent doing "group sessions." Models are hired directly by the photographers, for one-on-one sessions.
❦ ❦ ❦

Ramblewood is ideally located minutes from historic Havre de Grace, Maryland, and is convenient to Baltimore, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.
The entrance to our 200 scenic acres of private property is located a half mile from the nearest road, providing a safe haven in which to get away from it all. It goes all the way to the Susquehanna River .
Olympic-sized Swimming Pool,
Meals (available as an option) are served in our comfortable dining hall overlooking the pool. Food is served cafeteria style. (You are welcome to bring your own food & join us in the dining hall.)
Ramblewood features a number of newly renovated cabins that can comfortably accommodate five hundred people. Cabins are completely self-contained buildings with sinks, showers, toilets and brand new mattresses and box springs. Cabins are cleaned before the arrival of each group. You supply your own sheets, blankets, pillows, pillow cases, & towels.
Photographer tickets provide access to Ramblewood for two days of photography. They do NOT include modeling time with any of the models. Models for one-on-one, and group sessions may be hired directly by the photographers, either in advance, or on the spot. Tickets also provide an individual, single bed in a cabin.

Condensed Rules: Play nice, respect one another (see details below).
This is an 18+ event. You MUST be at least 18 years old and able to prove it. You MUST have government issued photo I.D. (usually a driver’s license or passport) to enter the grounds. If you are younger than 18 years old, you may NOT enter the grounds, but we look forward to your joining us when you reach 18.
Nearly everyone hates rules. We would like to have fewer rules, Camp Ramblewood is fully aware of the nature of NiNPAH and has always given groups like ours complete freedom. This freedom is what makes Ramblewood a great place for NiNPAH. We plan on protecting that freedom while keeping things safe. We want to leave Ramblewood knowing that we will be welcomed back for future events. The event rules are posted here to outline our expectations for attendees.
We want to keep things open and transparent, so we’re all on the same page when we arrive at the event. We figure, once you’re there, the less time you have to spend reading the rules, the more time there is for you to be both in front and behind the lens having fun. If you have any questions after reading the Event Rules, email us at staff@PhotoHeros.com
Alcoholic beverage is NOT welcome. That means NO, beer, hard cider, wine, liquor, whisk(e)y, or distilled spirits.

However, they are not permitted to enter for official, or government business, or another purpose, unless they have presented valid court orders.

To eliminate any possible confusion or misunderstanding:
Do NOT point a camera at any models unless you are paid up & currently scheduled, to photograph them.
If you find it necessary to be in the same area, make sure that your camera is cased or the lens is capped. If that is not possible hang you camera with the lens pointing toward you or straight down.
Do NOT photography other photographers, artists, or staff without their clear and unequivocal permission.
Make sure your background does NOT include photographers or others.
* ”Sniping” includes, but is not limited to, taking pictures from a distance without the knowledge & permission of the subject. It also includes all other kinds of surreptitious and candid image making.
Hidden cameras: The use of hidden cameras is PROHIBITED. Make sure your model knows exactly where the camera(s) are, and from where she or he is being photographed. This includes cameras “hidden in plain sight”.
If there is a problem please report it IMMEDIATELY, do NOT wait, or delay. Any concerns should be raised with a Staff Member.
Please clean up after your shoot or other activity. Leave all equipment and grounds the way you found it, or better. Do not leave behind: candy wrappers, bottles, cans, worn out equipment or anything else.
Fireplay is ONLY permitted in the fire pit by the pond and with prior approval from staff. The usual, and customary, rules for open fires & fire in general, apply, and are incorporated by reference.
Water Safety: The usual, and customary, rules for water safety apply, and are incorporated by reference.
Ramblewood & NiNPAR rules may on occasion conflict If that happens, your activities must be within the bounds of both sets of rules. Needless to say, the broader laws of society must also be observed.
These rules are evolving, they will be updated as required.
