Melissa Jean's Elite Glamour Meetup Presents:
ELITE GLAMOUR WEEKEND
South Florida, July 30-31
Hi, I'm Melissa Jean, welcome to our first two-day weekend event! I'm a 3x Playboy cover model and have been traveling the world modeling for photo shoots and participating in these photography events for over 15 years! I started the Elite Glamour Meetup group in March of 2020 and run single-day events out of my home studio in Fort Lauderdale. This is the first two-day event and we are upgrading to larger venues. We have two unique locations at our disposal for a wide variety of photography options!
We have 10 top glamour/art nude cover models attending, some of whom are making a special exception to be involved with this special event. You don't want to miss the opportunity to work with some of the best models in the industry. You might not have the chance again!
All of these models are available for the entire length of the event, both days. We welcome photographers from out of state to join us this summer for an epic weekend of shooting in beautiful South Florida! Travel information is included below.

Melissa Jean is the founder of Elite Glamour Meetup and a 3x Playboy cover girl. Originally from Chicago, Melissa has also lived in Arizona where she started modeling, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and South Florida. She's been in the industry for over 15 years, traveling around the world full time as a model for many of those years. She has been published in dozens of magazines and has graced many covers. Her prolific career is still going strong as she is now organizing meetup events in addition to shooting locally out of her home studio, and is now starting to travel again. You definitely need this highly accomplished model in your portfolio! She will be booking only 5 hours each day at this event due to her participation in the organization. She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, and glamour nude at this event.
Mika Lovely is a South Florida native who has had an awesome modeling career over the last 12 years. I love her because she is always both edgy and glamorous at the same time! She has been published all over the place and is recognized worldwide in the fetish scene as she is also a performer.. but don't let the latex, ropes, whips, and chains fool you, she is also an incredible glamour and fine art nude model who is advanced with posing. Don't pass up the opportunity to work with a truly diverse, creative artist who will bring an edge to our event! She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, glamour nude, and fetish styled imagery at this event.
What can I say? Alice is one of the most in-demand models at the moment and her career has picked up much speed recently, despite the pandemic. In the last few months, she has modeled in Costa Rica, Dubai, Tulum, and Jamaica to name a few places. She's multi-published including Playboy and Met-Art, both of which set her career soaring. She's been modeling full-time for 4 years now and is heavily involved with brands such as the Black Tape Project and Paradise Challenge to name a few. She's so busy traveling lately that it's rare to catch her for a shoot, so definitely don't miss your chance to work with her here! She's available for lingerie, swimwear, art nude, glamour nude, and erotic at this event.
Originally from Washington State and now residing in Orlando, Shaylene Pase is not only a fabulous model with a fun-loving personality but also doubles as a professional hair and makeup artist. She's been modeling for the last 3 years and has traveled all over the US, Jamaica, and Cancun Mexico as a hair and runway model. Health and fitness are extremely important to her and she exercises nearly every day, keeping her body toned year-round. She's the only model we are featuring with an entire arm sleeve tattoo, and it suits her perfectly! Her goal in this industry is to create and educate, and modeling is the just start of it. She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, and glamour nude at this event.
The stunning Scarlet Begonias is one of the hardest working and busiest traveling models around these days, and it's easy to see why! As a New York native now living in Orlando, she now has 4 years of modeling experience under her belt and has graced the cover of a handful of magazines including the very popular, FUSE Magazine. She has a fit natural figure, practices yoga regularly, and stays in great shape year-round! We are so proud of our Florida girl as she is about to walk in the runway event that kicks off Miami Swim Week 2021 as Miss Florida Bikini! Don't miss your chance to work with this super talented, natural beauty! She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, and glamour nude at this event.
This sultry beauty is coming all the way to shoot with us from Pittsburgh, PA. Alysha has been modeling for the past 5 years but has only started traveling to other parts of the country in the last 6 months. She's been a very popular workshop model in Baltimore, Las Vegas, and now South Florida. She's landed a handful of covers already and it's easy to see why... modeling comes so easy for her and the camera just loves all of those luscious curves! She's a mother and a nurse who loves cooking, working out, and can't wait to travel to more places. She's available for lingerie, swimwear, art nude, glamour nude, and erotic at this event.
We are extremely fortunate to be graced with this divine beauty's presence at our event! Melissa Lori has had an insanely successful career over the last 10 years, having been featured on over 30 covers and featured in Playboy early on. She doesn't model full time anymore as her days are now dedicated to being a spiritual advisor and coach, a reiki master and teacher, a singer/songwriter, working for an essential oil company, and doing retreats. She's extremely selective about whom she works with and she does not shoot nudes anymore, but...... she's making an exception only for our event! You don't want to miss the chance to work with a total goddess! She's available for lingerie, swimwear, art nude, and glamour nude at this event.
We are excited to have this 6-foot tall ray of sunshine coming all the way from Washington DC to join us for our event! Adlee is an extremely versatile model who got her start at New York Fashion Week doing 4 seasons of runway modeling. Now she is traveling full time, shooting almost every genre, and loves working with photographers of all skill levels. She’s a very visual and creative model that loves the creative process and is always full of ideas! Aside from modeling, she loves sports, the outdoors, and music. She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, glamour nude, and erotic at this event.
Makayla is a Florida Native and currently resides in Miami, but her second home is Turks and Caicos, where she runs her own destination meetup group. She's been busy traveling across the globe and has been a very in-demand model for the last 4 years! Go look at her impressive body of work on her website or Model Mayhem portfolio and you'll understand why. She has an incredibly fit figure from biking, pilates, and yoga, which makes her perfect for artistic nudes, glamour, and portrait-style shots. She's advanced with posing so you can focus on getting great shots! Oh, and her bright red hair will definitely make your photos stand out! She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, and glamour nude at this event.
Originally from Atlanta but now living in Miami, Kylie B. is one of the most talented up-and-coming models in the scene! She's only been shooting for two years, but her stunning natural beauty, soft southern charm, and effortless nature in front of the camera immediately got her noticed by Playboy. The beautiful sets she shot for them with photographer Cassandra Keys set her career off with a bang! Kylie has an extremely versatile look, which gives her much appeal. She pulls off a perfect high-fashion + editorial look which not all models can do easily and then can transform into a playful, sweet, and glamorous Southern belle that she is. She's available for fashion, lingerie, swimwear, art nude, glamour nude, and erotic at this event.
FEES, REGISTRATION, AND SCHEDULING
The registration fee to attend is $150 per day. Come one day or both. Model fees are separate from registration fees. Models will set their own rates and limits and photographers will pre-book directly with models. Sending a model a deposit to schedule at this event is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. We are doing 30-minute minimum pre-booked time slots and 2 hour maximum pre-booked time slots each day so that you may work with a variety of our talent who can all add a little something different to your portfolio! You may book more time with a model on the day of the event if she has availability in her schedule. Feel free to fill in your schedule on the day of the event after you meet these lovely girls in person, but keep in mind most of their schedules will be pre-booked. There will be NO DOWNTIME for a model to take breaks once your time starts. This means you understand that your time slot includes the time it takes for modes to change wardrobe, the time it takes to change locations, set up your lights, etc. It's suggested that you communicate your plan with the model ahead of time, arrive at the location early to make a game plan, and schedule the models accordingly if you need to take a break in between shoots. Failure to show up to the event or compensate models as promised will result in the removal of your membership of our Meetup group and denial of participation in any future events.
Only members who have paid the registration fees are allowed to contact the models to schedule with them for this event. Once paid, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Paid for XX day”and then will receive a reply email confirming your registration which includes all model's direct email addresses. The models will then also receive an email confirming your registration and including your contact information, to let them know you may be contacting them by direct email at that time. We have a private group on Meetup and you'll need to be approved individually, so please give us 24-48 hours to consider your request. No refunds for registration fees or model deposits after July 1, 2021. Please confirm your attendance before registering.

The closest airport in proximity to each location is the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, as it's located 7 miles south of The Venue in Fort Lauderdale and 21 miles north of the private residence in North Miami. Renting a car from the airport is easy. Make sure your rental car company is ON-SITE at the airport, and you'll be able to take a quick bus ride from any terminal.
