The Arlington Convention and Visitors Service will be conducting photo/video shoots across Arlington neighborhoods next Tuesday through Thursday, October 17 – 19, and YOU’RE INVITED! Please join us as “talent” in showcasing favorite Arlington travel experiences in a professional photo/video shoot. There’s no better way to show the best of Arlington than with real people having real fun around the County!
How do I sign up?
Click on this link and add your name for one or more shooting times/locations. Time slots will range from 2-3 hours.
What if I can’t stay the entire time? Any time commitments you can make of at least one hour will be helpful.
Can I bring my family or significant other? Some of the locations are ideally situated for families so that would be acceptable. Please reach out to Scott Baker to confirm if you'd like to invite others.
Will I be paid to participate? There is no separate payment for joining the shoot. You will need to confirm with your supervisor that you are approved to use Regular Hours to participate. Additionally, neither OT nor Volunteer Hours can be used for this purpose. Alternatively, you are also welcome to join on your personal time.
Where will the photos and video B-roll be used? The Arlington Convention and Visitors Service will use the photo/video assets in an array of print and digital advertising channels to attract leisure, business and meeting visitors to Arlington. Here is :30 sec video that was created from our last shoot. The assets will also be shared with Arlington County departments for them to use for internal and external purposes.
What will I do during the shoot? A professional photographer, videographer and creative director will guide participants at each location. A wide variety of scenes will be captured of people enjoying activities like dining, listening to music, experiencing a park or playground, shopping, etc. Depending on the scene and your preference, you may be in the foreground or the background of shots.
Additional details for shoot? If you sign up for one or more time slots, you’ll soon receive an email with specific details on where to be, what to wear, and other relevant information for the shoot.
