Dance Photography Shoot-out - At Charlotte's Ballroom Dance Studio

  • Jun 27, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for an evening of photography with dancers! 

They will pose, twirl, throw, and just have some dancing fun for us. This is a private event for PPG Members only.  We have reserved the studio and the dancers just for our creative fun. 

Here is an inspirational Pinterest board if you'd like to see what we have in mind for the night. We will have couples, doing Tango, Salsa, or Ballroom poses, and a ballerina or jazz dancer (or two).

The studio space is quiet large but we are keeping the number of RSVPs limited to allow enough capturing/ creative time for everyone. So....  don't wait and save your spot now before they are all gone.  

We will bring some studio strobe lighting and flashes. You are welcome and encouraged to bring anything that you may like to use as well. We should have some theatrical lighting set-ups and smoke machines also.  As always.... we will share our equipment and remote triggers and help anyone needing it. 

Our goal at PPG is to be sure you capture amazing images to add to your portfolio! You will never see us post images from an event after you have gone, making you wonder what "secrets" we have kept. 

We use the Aputure transceivers in our events. I DO have many extras for sharing (my transceivers work with Nikon and Canon cameras only) but you may purchase one of your own by following one of the links below. A set of these will also fire your flash off camera and work as a remote shutter release and they cost around $70 for a set of 2. Sharing though does not mean you are NOT able to keep the trigger on your camera the whole evening. If you elect to not purchase one of your own or work with your own lighting equipment, that is absolutely fine, however, please understand there are others doing the same and the equipment will need to be equally shared.

*Please also note: You are REQUIRED to upload your images to the  Meetup website within 2 to 3 weeks of an event.  The model are promised 2 full resolution images from each photographer that photographs at this class, but you may share as many images as you like through social media or email.  This is the exchange for the models time and for the model release that allows you the rights to use them within your websites and portfolios. 

If you have any question please send me an email.

Hope to see you there, 

Lori Jill 


Better direction in case Map quest doesn't work: 

*From 51, turn onto Independence Pointe Pkwy (at 5/3 Bank), then Left onto Four Lakes Drive where the Baseball Training Center is, and continue through the neighborhood until the road ends facing Independence Blvd. Studio entrance is on the right. 

 *From Independence Blvd, take exit for Hwy51/Pineville Matthews Rd. Turn left at top of ramp and follow directions above. The studio CANNOT be accessed directly from Independence Blvd.

    Lori, looking forward to shooting with you once again, I've got the aperature trigger, so that shouldn't be a problem for me. One question I do have, what is the dress requirements, hopefully casual dress, such as shorts and short sleeved shirt will be ok, let me know if it's a bit formal for us.

    June 26, 2014

    • Lori J.

      ok, sounds good then mine will cover you for website use etc... I know the IPC with PPA requires a release because if you win they put it into a book that they sell so just didn't want you to be surprised. See you tomorrow Don
