WELCOME! We are a photography group dedicated to learning the fine points of artistic figure photography and lighting techniques, and perfecting our skill. We do this by taking lots of pictures & practicing at numerous workshops.

This group welcomes: accomplished professionals, first timers, & all those in between. If you are serious about photography, regardless of your skill level, and want to improve your skill at working with nude models, this group is probably for you.

We take photography very seriously. Setting up shoots with top models requires much planning, lots of work & cooperation from all of the participants. We know that other aspects of life sometimes interfere with our photography plans, but if you say you are attending, we'd like you to show up or at least cover your share of the cost.

Our DC area studio events are usually held at:

Studio 400, 7205 Lockport Pl, Lorton, VA.  GPS Coordinates: 38.715776, -77.190365

Lac Viet Gallery and Studio, 5179 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA 22207.  is also on our location list.   See: http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?city=Arlington&s... for the studio location map.

We are a sister group of the Manhattan Figure Study ... group: http://www.meetup.com/figure-photography/
