Orlando Meet & Greet (OMG) Winter 2017
One other lousy thing about 2016 was that there never was an OMG meetup. We are going to start 2017 off right though and have a event to makeup for an entire year.
This time we are going back to the last wonderful location, a friend of mine's ranch in Davenport. It's a 500 acre ranch that is purely dedicated to hang gliding. In that regard they have a 100 acre open flat grass field that is going to be our primary shooting area. It's beautiful.
Our theme for the event will be inside out. We are going to bring furniture and props that are usually indoors and set them out in the field. From full dining room table, to couches to beds. It will make for great photos
The dress code though will be dress to impress. Go formal, Go Steampunk, Go Gothic Lolita, Go historical costume. It doesn't really matter what it is so long as it is impressive. That's a pretty open theme I know but I'll put an album together for suggestions.
The ranch is private property but there will the occasional hang glider coming to a ride. We will keep the event PG-13 in that regards please. Common sense applies and don't just wander off alone without letting people know where you are.
Unless you have the money to buy the ranch a new one, DO NOT POSE WITH THE PLANES OR GLIDERS
If you would like to book a tandem hangglider flight on Sunday morning before the event there will be a discount available. Malcolm has done over 30,000 incident free tandem flights. You'll never see things the same way again after

We are one of the longer running meet and greets to connect Orlando models with Orlando photographers... and to introduce both to the rest of the industry as well with Stylists, MUA's and others.
We are into our 9th year of Orlando Meet & Greets and as usual and to keep you all on your toes we change up the format a little bit every time we can... In the past we have done that by hosting it a mechanic shop, marina, and a place of bohemian nirvana. We hope to always provide a place that is wonderful to shoot in.
Why go for another local meet and greet? Because while these are networking events we always want to make sure to host them in locations that are conducive to shooting for people who connect as well as a place to relax and people watch while talking with your industry peers.
Props are welcome if you have them. If you do want to bring one please contact Jesse@wallker1812.com to plan it so we make sure we have enough space and it will fit in the buildings. Remember the theme...so we want the props to be on theme as well and that don't inconvenience the use of the park by others.
-------- VIP Details ----------
The VIP early bird portion of the event is FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS only. Basically it's a time with less people, professional models and lots of shooting. The professional and seasoned models are there specifically to work with you and help you get some great themed images. These featured models are selected for this portion of the event by the OMG Staff and pulled from agencies as well as models the OMG Staff has worked with before.
VIP tickets sell fast. They sold out in less than 24 hours last time So, if you want one, make sure to get in fast. I can't add more tickets without diminishing what makes the VIP special, to be fair I'm announcing when the tickets go on sale well in advance so you can be there as soon as they go on sale and first come first serve basis.
VIP EARLY BIRD INFO: 12-2PM
tickets go on sale at noon on Thurssday, December 01, 2015
purchase tickets at:
Tickets are $60 + (ticket service fee)
You are permitted to bring any lighting sources you like provided you can power them yourself. We cannot promise there will be an available outlet near where you want to shoot... it's the beach. Reflectors are your friends and your friends hold them.
---------- VIP Tickets ----------
All tickets sold will be 100% refundable until exactly one (1) week before the event. 50% refundable from one week before until exactly 48 hours before the event. After which tickets are not refundable. Refund does not include service fee.
This is a non-profit enterprise and I try to charge only as much as it takes to run the event.
