Models

PTO is most grateful to the sponsorship contributions. To hire a PTO model for wedding or portrait practice sessions the rate is £20 per model, per hour;  If you require models for longer sessions price by negotiation with the model. PTO Model Release forms must be signed and payment made to the model/s.

Group colour coding

The groups Red Green, Blue and Yellow are colour coded simply to divide delegates into equal numbers, each group will receive the same level of tuition so please stay with your allocated group unless you want to join a friend in which case please find another delegate to change with and exchange your colour coded badge holder.

Charity tombola prizes

If you have any please let us have them ASAP. We will again be donating proceeds to worthwhile charities.
