Beach 2024,Donabate
Confirmed : 400 Provisional: 20 Potential: 420

What, Where , When , How

Megashoot is a 100% free shoot that is basically a gathering of models , photographers and like minded individuals that we hold oncve/twice a year and the next event is already planned !

Date : June 8th 2024
Location Donabate Beach, North County Dublin
Start Time Meeting and badges handed out at 09.30

Location Info : There are several sandy locations , there is a brick tower , The Shoreline hotel close by, toilets not too far off , grass areas that can be used , parking is a 5 minute walk (but get there early) and last time it was free.
Donabate train station is a 35 minute walk (2.7 KM) but im sure we can organise some collections from the station or a method to let people know ur going to the beach shoot.

Just because this shoot is located on a beach doesnt mean its all Bikini , swimsuit , so please bare that in mind and try to bring a few unique ideas to the shoot.Last time we were here we had people in costumes , a wedding dress, lots of various dresses and even had someone inside a car waxing cloth. Its all about the unusual concepts.

What is this all about ?

Basically this is a gathering of photographers and models in one location in an attempt to do some organised shoots and have a bit of fun while doing so. Its initially for the members of the facebook group "Ireland Models" (feel free to search and join), but its really open to anyone who wants to sign up to the database here.

How does it work ?

Once signed up as a model , you can search photographers profiles and see what ones you want to work with and book them. When signed up as a photographer you can do the same for the models profiles , both sides have to approve the request before the shoot is confirmed and the booking turns green. You can confirm in the My Profile (login.php section once you sign in.

Each shoot is 1 hour long (45 minutes shooting and 15 minutes to get back to base) and we have scheduled in a break for everyone between 1 and 2 where no bookings can be made so that everyone gets a bit of a rest.

Holiday Photoshoot

We are organizing a holiday shoot to Croatia in September, which is totally separate to the actual Megashoot - details are here for anyone interested.
Photographer spaces are full already , but we have a few model spots still open if anyone would be interested in shooting abroad.

Everyone pays their own way and we stay in a villa together and do shoots between relaxing.

Spaces arent confirmed until villa payments are made.



When shooting there are always a few rules to follow , here are a few we think are acceptable

1. No touching the models in any way without first getting permission
2. No pushing boundaries , models work to their own comfort level so no trying to push past that
3. 1 hour slots start on the hour, shooting is 45 minutes and 15 minutes to get back to base. NO HOGGING MODELS
4. When your timeslot is close , stay near the tent so you can match with model/photographer easily
5. No using other photographers props , if they brought something to shoot with its theirs and not anyone elses
6. Respect people using the location on the day , give them space and dont have them in the background. They are out to enjoy themselves and we shouldnt interfere with that.
7.Respect the location and keep it tidy, everything we bring in , we bring out - try to keep bins for the other users and bring all your own rubbish with you.
8. Photographers or models who dont show on the day with no notice will be blacklisted and removed from Ireland Models
9. If you as a model or a photographer feel uncomfortable about anything then PLEASE contact Grant. Martin.
10. No taking models if they arent rostered to you in that hour - this can delay the next shoot

As a bit of advice , if a model/photographer isnt shooting and you have a shoot , get them to tag along , they may be able to give creative advice or help out in areas you didnt expect and it also gives them something to do while waiting for their next shoot, even time keeping may help
