Let's create great Art!

I am Marie Appert the Producer of all our photo shoots.

The way this photography group works is that I chose the theme of our events, the location, and venue of the photo shoots. I acquire the permits, chose the models, MUAs, hair stylists, wardrobe, jewelry, accessories, and the props that fit the theme of the shoot. 

The photographers have complete creative freedom. I do not give direction to the photographers. But please stick to the theme. I am not your director. My shoots are not workshops. I expect you to have at least a beginner knowledge of the basic principles of photography and a decent DSLR camera. Please know what all the buttons dials do.

and ask you to introduce yourself the the models that you will be working with and ask them to sign release forms,

This group is self-supporting by member’s contributions and fundraising from group events. I create the budget for the photo shoots, by charging the photographers a small amount to attend the shoots. The models and stylists are compensated with digital images from the photographers who attend the events, that way we can afford to purchase wonderful wardrobe, jewelry, accessories, etc. I put a lot of thought and planning into every aspect of these shoots. These details separate us from other groups and you can tell by the quality of our images. Our models have the opportunity to build their portfolios, network, and gain valuable life experiences and exposure to other industry professionals. In addition to having a lot of fun. Many of the models in our group have gone on to have very successful careers as Actors and Models, because they are hard workings, chose exceptional people to work with, and take these high quality TF gigs when they have downtime from their paying jobs. The Photographers in our group range from all experience levels. They range from professionals to advance beginners. We have such a great group, the less experienced beginners are invited and feel welcome to buddy up with the season pros in order to watch and learn. I really think that speaks highly of our group, that people are will to share their knowledge. Very impressive. The professional photographers appeal to our group because they have a passion for photography. This also gives them and opportunity to trying out new gear and techniques; they also have the opportunity to experiment with different photo genres, network with models and other industry professionals. Our group is very unique because of the time, planning and expense that I put into creating these events.

Warm Regards,

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
