This is a PAID MEMBERSHIP group with an annual fee of $75.
You have 30 days to join, and you must join before you can attend any event.
This is a splinter group from the Pittsburgh Model & Photographer Meetup Group (http://meetup.com/models) and is a "light weight" alternative for the more intensive Pittsburgh Figure, Fetish and Erotic art group (http://meetup.com/eroticart). For more information check out the main group at http://meetup.com/models More information will be posted here soon.
The purpose of founding this group was several fold. The main reason was to give the more interested photographers and models a venue to work together making images that were harder to do on their own due to costs, props, whatever. By pulling the "fetish" and "Erotic" into it's own group, it provided a better atmosphere for creativity as well.
The second reason was we moved most of the the nude/figure/fetish/erotic out of the Pittsburgh Model and Photographer Meetup group, leaving that a basic people photography group, with a few "nude" events.
The Original group is a more basic, intro to model photography and use of studio equipment.
We hope this helps people find more of what they want, without the stuff they don't.
We have been having 2-3 Figure/Art/Fetish events a month on a regular basis, and it's time to give this the attention it needs. We have been doing some pretty advanced work, and there is a "core" of photographers who have gotten very involved.
We also feel there is a need for basic "people photography" and studio techniques, so we will break this group off the original one.
If you are in the Pittsburgh area, AND are serious about Nude/Figure photography, or want to learn, this is the group. We don't just have "one" meetup. We have a lot of different things going on, and we have special events, impromptu shoots, and more.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
