      • Here are the Rules for the Park. The big rule that MUST BE FOLLOWED is to keep off of ALL Dunes. This is a near $500 fine if you are caught. It is not worth it.

  1. MODELS: Models are provided by Tout modeling agency. They will be treated with respect at all times. 
  2. USE OF IMAGES. There will be a Model Release in place for images captured at the event. Images may be used for direct studio promotions, marketing, and for print samples for clients, only. Third party assignment will not be provided. Photographers will have release to use in tasteful web promotion to include social media.
  3. IMAGES. There will be no image requirement from VIP models. Photographers may reach out and provide an image(s) as a courtesy, but not as a requirement. There will also be an album in the facebook group for images to be posted to.  

I am really looking forward this event and I hope you are too!
