My vision for this group is to bring everyone together from photographers to models, and makeup artists to fashion designers- working together and helping one another build portfolios, expand your network, help those with less experience, and schmooze with others in the industry. I want to welcome everyone from professionals to those who are just trying to get their foot in the door by organizing themed photography events and workshops in the Chicago Metro area. If you are a photographer, model, stylist, makeup and body-paint artist, fashion designers, and anyone else with a love for art, you are welcome to join and be a part of something fun a great for everyone!

The photographers, models, hair stylists, makeup artists and wardrobe designers are all being provided by others in the group, and in exchange for their work, we ask photographers to give prints or digital files of photos to those involved in making these events possible. We all want to help each other succeed and get ahead, and in order to keep these events cheap or free, I would like us all to work in harmony.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: Network and meet others in the industry. Build your portfolio, share tricks and learn new ones. Everyone is helping everyone in this group.

MODELS: Meet and work with photographers, makeup artists and fashion designers on a professional photography shoot each month! Build your modeling portfolio without hiring expensive photographers. Learn about the industry and see if this is the career for you. We are all here to help each other.

MAKEUP AND HAIR: Get a chance to use your talent and build your portfolio. Experiment with new techniques, learn new tricks from others, meet and work with models and photographers in the industry. We will all work together to help us improve our skills and have fun doing it.

FASHION DESIGNERS: Here you have your models, hair and makeup, and photographers to help your garments become fashion. Have a chance to build your book and market your work.

This is a fun group of people. No equipment will be provided for anyone, so please come prepared. I also welcome any professionals who are interested in hosting workshops at the events. Please contact me with your ideas and information. I have been a photographer for 6 years and I want to be a part of a support network that is there to help those in this industry for professionals and amateurs. I love fashion photography, and I really look forward to meeting everyone!
