Great news! We have been waiting for this to have a studio and a place for our group indoor-studio photography art works, workshops and meetings... I'm very happy to tell you all that "Waveform" is also our first sponsor in Austin courtesy of Sean Mackie.
This event is also set up to bring along a model(s) wether they are beginners, amateur, experienced, semipro-professional all are welcome. Please let me know who are bringing models because we'll have a limit of maximum 20 participants so, we can have a quality studio photo shoots that everyone will enjoy!
Before the shoots we'll have a short meeting-introduction-discussion and an overview of our upcoming events, photo shoots, workshops and opportunities for all members wether you want to become a serious hobbyists-enthusiasts or become professionals (For others who are just looking for fun this group is not all about that). Our group is focus on continous learning, mastering the craft and supporting the members to become succesful by working and helping each other!
Suggestions, positive criticism and participations are very important to make the group meaningful, productive and beneficial. ***Kio who was based in Austin and was originally the one to lead the Austin group moved to California for family reasons and hope she come back soon...*** So, we are searching for passionate leaders to make this group awesome!
Since, this is primarily a modeling photography group range from fashion, commercial, glamour, portraitures for all ages, we'll also be doing all kinds of photography in lifestyle, wedding-bridal, landscape, sports, events, community and others... In short our photography group is design for us to be either a complete photographer or styles that you would like to focus on based on your preferences and talents. We don't want to miss any income opportunities or big budgeted projects when someone offered it to you, right?!
Briefly, we'll share some informations about professional modeling (All types) & photography tips & techniques before we shoot. If one has the experiences and knowledge please don't hesitate to share it and we highly appreciate your kindness...
To be clear of our objectives for this event aside from lightings it will be based on:
- What the models's Modeling Types they fit in (Fashion-Commercial-Glamour-Beauty-Teens-Kids-Plus Size...)
- What's in a Modeling Portfolio (Headshots, medium or 3/4 length-full length shots).
- Portraitures (Freestyle).
Upcoming workshops: Classic Lighting Techniques, How to Make A Modeling Portfolio (For Agencies), Basic Lightings (1-4 Set Up), Basic & Top Model Poses, How To Direct A Model and many more...
IMPORTANT: Please RSVP only if you are very sure of coming. We discourage "Habitual No Shows" to our meet ups as it is disruptive & distracting and not fair to everyone who are devoted to the craft.
