Welcome to this meetup group - under new management!

I have taken over as organizer so we will be moving forward in a bit of a different direction.  Mike previously focused on studio photography but I shoot outdoors more often than not so we will include a lot of natural and outdoor-off camera lighting as well.

A bit about me - I started in January 2012 shooting bodybuilding/figure and bikini competitions and have shot several of these across the country in 2012.  I attended several seminar style classes offered by McKay Photography Academy, attended a private workshop with Barry Druxman in LA and learned a lot from Keith Selle at a shootout up near Sacramento.  Another great meetup is BAMPS run by eRwin - great opportunity there as well.

I still have a LOT to learn but I hope to bring what I have learned to these shoots and get some great ideas from the groups memebers as well. 

I will very often have a professional hair and makeup artist attend these session so we can get the best from our models!




~If you are a model and you are interested in being in a future workshop , please join our group as well and send a note to the Organizer~
