Claremore Main Street is seeking volunteer models and extras for a downtown photoshoot scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 11 at 3 p.m.
All are welcome to come be a part of the shoot, either as a “model,” meaning they’d like to be featured, or as an “extra,” those who want to participate but would rather be in the background. Children and pets also are welcome.
The photos will be taken by DroneWorks and will include people downtown, architecture shots and drone photography.
“We schedule this photoshoot as a way to get new and fresh photos of our ever changing downtown,” said Jessica Jackson, director of Claremore Main Street. “We are happy to be working with a local photographer on this project.”
The photos will be used for marketing materials, including the organization’s website, advertisements, social media and brochures among others.
Volunteers should meet at the Claremore Main Street, 419 W. Will Rogers Blvd., at 3 p.m. for instructions and assignments. The entire shoot will be over by 6 p.m. Volunteers are encouraged to stay as long as they can but are welcome to come-and-go as necessary to fit their schedules.
Additionally, volunteers are asked to dress in winter/fall attire without logos — with the exception of RSU or Claremore Zebra attire — trademarks or offensive language.
“All clothing should be deemed not offensive by the average person,” Jackson explained. “Basically, anything that is revealing or potentially controversial should be left at home.”
Volunteers are not required to RSVP but when possible should let the Main Street Director know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if they intend to be there. In case of extreme cold or inclement weather, Jackson will notify everyone those she’s heard from and update their Facebook page if the shoot is postponed.
A second photoshoot is tentatively scheduled for June.
Claremore Main Street is dedicated to the ongoing revitalization of historic downtown Claremore. With a focus on economic vitality, historic preservation and placemaking, the organization strives to secure downtown as the social and economic core of the community.
