I am Marie Appert the Producer and Wardrobe Stylist for all of our photo shoots. As the organizer I want to welcome you to the group. I am very excited to have you on the team and looking forward to meeting you soon at our photoshoots. Please take a look at our group’s calendar as we have some fun and creative shoots scheduled and I would not want you to miss the chance to attend them.
The way this photography group works is that I chose the theme of our events, the location, and venue for 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. And you, the photographer just show up and shoot. The photographers have complete creative freedom. I do not give direction to the photographers. Be as creative as you want when working with the models, but please stick to the theme. 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.
The Photographers in our group range from all experience levels. They range from professionals to advanced and beginners. This gives the photographers the opportunity to try out new gear and techniques. They also have the opportunity to experiment with different types of photography, 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. I also have extremely high standards when choosing the models.
Please pay your membership dues so our group can host great photoshoots. The minimal fee is a one time annual payment. It covers the expense of running the group. Thank you for supporting your group!
This group is self-supporting by member’s contributions. Charging for the group events is how we can afford to purchase wonderful wardrobe, jewelry, pay for photo insurance, film permits, and pay the Meet-Up web hosting charges, in addition to providing the stylists with a kit fee to help cover some of the cost of their products.
