Our goal is to provide members with opportunities to network with other photographers, improve their skills, gain real studio shooting experience and build their portfolio.
This group is for photographers of all skill levels. We will share shooting opportunities in a studio setting with glamour, fashion and fine art nude models. Many will be accomplished models with extensive experience, and from time to time, we may provide a new model with the unique experience of modelling for us to help them build their portfolio. You will learn from the organizers and from each other. We believe that even a novice photographer has a contribution to make.
You will have a variety of themes and models to choose from as we strive to keep our meet ups fresh. One event will focus on glamour, another on cosplay, boudoir, fashion, figure studies or fine are nudes. One meet up, we will be working with one model, another we may have 2 or 3 models. And we invite your input on themes and looks that you want to try.
The studio that we have arranged to use offers a unique look so that we don't always have to resort to a plain paper or muslin backdrop. This repurposed factory building is home to a small arts community and offers brick as well as plaster walls, original factory windows, hardwood floors, 12 foot ceilings, vintage freight elevator, wrought iron chandeliers and also provides a unique outdoor, urban setting with an old steel fire escape, wooden garage doors with 3 colours of paint peeling off, rail road tracks 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.
