Studio shoot with live models


This meetup was $75.00, but is now only $50.00! Sign up today, there are still a few spots open!

If you already paid, you will get a refund of 25 dollars.

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to photograph live models in a professional studio? Now is your chance. Join us in our first ever live studio shoot.

We will be using the studio of professional photographer Elena Mir Gaeta Ron and she has graciously offered to quickly review basic lighting setups for this event. It should be noted that this is NOT a workshop style event, but more of a learn by doing.I am hoping that the more experienced photographers will offer assistance to the less experienced among us and that everyone shares and learns together.

The cost for this outing is $50.00 per photographer and I am limiting it to only 8-10 photographers to allow everyone ample to time to compose and shoot. The reason I am charging for this event is to help defray the costs of the models and the use of the studio.

The studio is large enough to handle two settings simultaneously, and there will be at least two models present for this shoot. The studio has its own lighting and sets. Each photographer will get a specific amount of time to work with each model independently and there will also be time set aside for a group shoot.

The day will last 4 and a half hours with a 30 minute break for lunch. Lunch will NOT be provided but there are a few places nearby where you can run and grab a quick bite.

Since this is our first attempt, there may be some minor bugs that will need to be worked through. That is why the cost is as low as it is. I am sure everyone will have plenty of questions, so please don't hesitate to ask. If this works, the plan is to make this a permanent monthly outing with various types of models.

Your support is greatly appreciated. More details will be provided as the date draws near.

    FANTASTIC! This meetup exceeded my wildest expectations. Three absolutely gorgeous models, a talented makeup artist and a beautiful studio setting for seven great photographers, who can ask for anything more. I cannot wait to see everyone's photos.
