Our attendees will have the choice between two exquisite adjacent lodging options.  Under Canvas for a modern glamping experience under the stars or just a stones throw away, Bar N Ranch for traditional private cabins or rooms within a rustic lodge for those who prefer a more traditional experience with added amenities.

This location is our home base because it offers everything we need for this destination!  It is nestled at the foothills of the mountains on the West entrance of Yellowstone and is surrounded by the foothills of mountains with a rushing stream and horses.  A perfect location!

There are a variety of lodging options starting at just $50 per person, per night, for those photographers traveling solo and interested in sharing lodging with 3 others. Or you can bring the whole fam and make a summer vacation out of the experience before and after the event!

How to register…

Monday at 11 am I will be posting a link in a blog post here, on the Senior Style Guide Facebook page and in the Senior Style Guide private Facebook group.  All three places will have the same link so you can click on it from any of them!

We have very limited space available and have a 2:1 photographer to model ratio! Our model team will consist of both teen models and couples for both senior photographer, wedding photographers and those who are wanting to expand their portfolio to offer elopement and engagement destination sessions for adventurous couples!

In the past, events have sold out as quickly as one hour! As a previous Alumni said, “SSG + BDP Destination Adventure was the absolute best family vacation, boost for my business and tax write off I’ve ever experienced!”

Once registered,  you will be added to a private FB group for all the planning and can choose to share a room/rental car with another photographer(s).

We look forward to seeing who will be joining us Out West!  If you missed our announcement of this destination on Wednesday you can find it HERE! 

Restrictions and Etiquette:

1. All attendees must be located outside a 70 mile radius of zip code 22554
2. Attendees will need to sign a contract that they will not teach or host a destination shoot workshop within 2 years of attending.
3. Images taken at the event may only be used for personal website and portfolio building. Images from the event shared on all social media must include @BrookeDanielsPhotography, @Seniorstyleguide, #ssgbdpoutwest and #ssgdestinations in the caption of every image posted.  Images may NOT be submitted to any publications, contests, weekly favorites, blogs, or any other social media sites.
4. Attendees are not able to tag the models in any of the images they take.
Photographers are not allowed to give, share or sell their images to the models

5.  If you own or work for a senior blog or magazine you may not attend.
6. Shooting Etiquette: During the shootout, each attendee will have ample time to shoot each model on their own as we will take turns in a organized and respectful manner.  We want to be sure that each photographer walks away with images of models in different poses with different locations so that everyone’s images look different and reflect the individual photographer’s style.  Shooting over each others shoulders will not be permitted. You will work as a team in the group assigned.

Our next big adventure together awaits!

See you there.
