Secret Garden Shoot w/ Models

  • Apr 13, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for another fun event in the gardens of UNCC.

This is an amazing location on the north side of Charlotte. There are many different backgrounds to chose from, tons of flowers and man made structures, water, and of course models.

We will have an Engagement couple, a couple of children (boys and girls) and an adult female or two as models.

Here are a few images from attendees at the shoots we did there last year:

With proper use of lighting, props & poses I will help you capture these kind of images for your portfolio!

This event will be open to all photographers from beginners to advanced.

RSVP is limited - So don't miss out on your chance to sign-up!

Although, all you will NEED to bring with you is your DLSR camera & lens, we will be using Aputure Transceivers in this session for any external lighting. I do have extras that I am always willing to share, however, my transceivers only work with Nikon & Cannon cameras.

These transceivers are ONLY $70 for a set of 2 if you wish to purchase them and here are the links to the ones we use:

Cannon Transceivers link to purchase - Click here
Nikon Transceivers link to purchase - Click here
Sony Transceivers link to purchase - Click here

I'm looking forward to a great "spring time" photography month ahead!

I hope to see you soon....

P.S. Due to weather and sometimes other circumstances out of my control, always be sure to check the Meetup site for any updates or changes to the event before leaving to come to us. I post any changes or important information in the comments thread or through the email attached to the event Also, be sure your email notifications is turned on to receive them as they come in and not just daily, which I think is the default.

  • Chandranshu S.

    I'm at 9201 University City Blvd, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
    It is easy to locate. Can we all meet here only. There is a parking available too.

    April 13, 2014

  • Chandranshu S.

    I'm already here near student union. Is anyone still there? What's the exact address?

    April 13, 2014

  • Lori J.

    Please Google search the UNCC gardens for better driving directions. The Map and address here doesn't exactly take you to the entrance. Although it is not hard, I recommend going on researching a bit to find it. http://gardens.uncc.edu/visiting-the-gardens/directions-and-parking/

      Lori do you want us to use the greenhouses as the meeting point?

      April 12, 2014

    • Lori J.

      Joy the entrance is right across the street from the greenhouse. I believe the greenhouse itself will be closed at this hour. We will meet by the entrance and the sign that leads down the path ok. :-) See ya later. I'm leaving Charleston here shortly to head that way

    • Lori J.

      There will plenty to photograph. Hope you have fun! Looking forward to meeting some new folks and seeing some old friends!

    1 last thing, for those of you who have never joined my group before... we do not "usually" ever work with professional models but rather people more like our regular portrait clients. I do this on purpose for the sake of learning and growing as a portrait photography. There are a lot of groups working with high fashion models, it's just not what I do. :-)

    April 12, 2014

  • Lori J.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. I will be outside the entrance about 20 minutes early for introductions and gathering. If you are running late you may have to walk down into the gardens to find us. We will be the large group with cameras so probably not hard to find.

    April 12, 2014

    • Lori J.

      But please try to arrive on time. I have a ton of models and many are children so I will need all the cameras ready to shoot early. Kids don't last long waiting on us. LOL
      Without going into detail the children models have all switched up from the original models. We still have our engagement couple, and three adult lady models and LOTS of kids! Little girls and little boys. All ranging from 3 to 9 years of age. It will be a big portfolio building day for sure.

      April 12, 2014

  • Tiffany G.

    This is my first meet up. Reading the comments I am super excited and can't wait to meet everyone.

    2 · April 10, 2014

  • David Y.

    My granddaughter from Chicago will be visiting for this shoot. She is developing an interest in photography so it should be a lot of fun.

    1 · April 4, 2014

    • Lori J.

      Glad you are joining us and bringing your granddaughter David. I have 3 kids lined up a 15 year old boy model and 2 female models. See you then
