If you're looking to build your portfolio, I have another opportunity for you. Ven Sherrod Studios is hosting its 3rd Monthly In-Studio Photo shoot at an amazingly low discounted rate. Details are included below for your convenience:
Description: The temperatures in Chicago aren't exactly reflecting the official start of spring, but on April 27th, 2013 that is what we want to do! It's time to trade in your winter darks and warm woollies for bright colors and cool fabrics for this shoot. Let's replace the long sleeves with short sleeves and the pants for a hint of skin!

Location: Ven Sherrod Studios - 1906 S Halsted | Chicago, IL
Cost - $35 Photographers & Models | No Charge for MUA/ Hair Stylists/ Designers

All lighting is included complementary in cost. For the photographers with less experience, tutorials on using professional studio lighting and adjusting your camera settings will be provided.
