This is a paid membership, mostly invitation only group.
There is a small group of us who have been working/shooting together for years, and this group is going to *try* to be the expansion of that into a more coordinate, "fetish" and "erotic art" workshop group. WORKSHOPS. That means learning, doing, and creating. Not sitting around.
Fetish photography is expensive, and this is an intense group for working with the artistic concepts of fetish/art photography, and erotic/art photography. If you are looking for or thinking this group will be about about spreads, insertions, or "adult" images, you are wrong. Dead wrong.
Workshops will have fees to attend, to help pay for props and model expenses. You are expected to attend a reasonable number of events which helps fund the group. Just paying the membership fee is not enough to keep a group like this running. If you don't understand and accept that, this is not the group for you.
Many people have tried to start and maintain photography/fetish/erotic/art groups. The largest single point of failure is MONEY. This is EXPENSIVE. Photography is EXPENSIVE (even with the digital cameras making it _cheaper_ than it ever was, it is still EXPENSIVE!). Fetish photography is even more so. Good fetish gear for a basic shoot can cost in excess of $2000 PER MODEL! Large, stationary props that can cost in excess of $10,000. We have run groups for almost 3 decades, and understand what it takes to start, run, and keep them running.
This is a membership group for people who understand that, and who realize that working in a group is the best way to afford this sort of hobby/art.
Membership and continued involvement in the group is dependent on several things.
1) Artistic vision consistent with the concepts of this group art/erotic/fetish not explicit/adult.
2) A friendly, cordial, and cooperative attitude with others and a professional respect for the models especially.
3) Activity by attending/participating on a regular basis in the workshops, events, and shoots.
4) A portfolio review.
5) Payment of membership and workshop fees.
6) You must be an active member of the http://meetup.com/models group and have attended several of the Fetish, art/figure and similar workshops. This is our screening process.
Annual fee is $375 per year, and may be paid in 3 installments of $125 each, over 3 consecutive months.
Your first payment is due upon acceptance into the group.
If you understand these ideas, and agree, you may apply, or you can ask questions and be a part of the more ordinary group at http://meetup.com/models
MODELS: If you are a fetish model (FEMALE), and want to be a part of this group, please apply. You pay for your membership here by working/modeling, and will even be able to make some money once your dues are paid. The more involved you are, the more you will be able to earn, and the more props you'll have access to. There are perks being a part of the group.
New members must be approved by the Organizer
