This is a group for anyone interested in Photography in general but especially for those with an interest in Shooting subjects (models) both in a Studio environment and On-location. Every meeting will be a practical one, meaning you WILL NEED YOUR CAMERA :)
My nights always offer a relaxed and informal atmosphere and The Loft Studio in Colchester offers the perfect setting for photographers of all ages and levels of experience to come along, chat, share ideas but most importantly get creative.
Taking Photos should be fun!! Come along to one of our meets and I guarantee you will enjoy meeting new people and old in a great atmosphere, learn something new every time and walk away with some awesome images!
What will I need to bring?
Whatever camera you want. people have come with point and shoot cameras, DSLR's, 1970's Large Format box camera's and even their iPhone's!! We will provide all the lighting and certain props. We are more than happy for you to bring props along as well as and equipment you'd like to use / try.
What we do!
Club Nights -JUST £15!!!
Once a month we will host a club night at the studio which will feature at least 2 models. We will generally have a theme and leave it up to you and the models to interpret that theme as you will! Levels will never go above Lingerie but could be anything up to this depending on the theme. You will work in groups with your models and I will be on hand to set up lighting etc and offer advice where needed. On-going offer - book onto the club night and at least 3 other nights in the same month and I will refund the cost of the club night from your 3rd shoot :-)
Evening Shoots / Workshops - £30 - £45
Our most popular events. After a day at the office come to one of our Evening events and enjoy the friendly, chilled-out atmosphere. You’ll be working with like-minded people and will pick up lots of tips. There's always new concepts and new models at these sessions which will help to expand your portfolio and inspire you to get your creative juices flowing. These can be based both in studio and also (weather permitting) on-location.
Full / Part Day Shoots / Workshops - £40 - £80
Our Full / Part Day shoots are generally held at weekend and bank holidays and are again very popular. Similar to the evening sessions except that there are generally less numbers and of course more sets meaning more 1-1 time with your model (and even more awesome images!)
Model Studio Days £35 - £50 per hour
A unique experience in that you get to work with your model on a strictly 1 - 1 basis (with me assisting!) Book by the hour or, for a slightly cheaper rate, 2 hours and make sure that your creativity is your own only.
