Pro-Am  has been  running successfully  since 2009 and is THE PREMIER  Photography and Models  group  added to MeetUp - we offer coaching for models and photographers and cater to professionals also .

An educational resource, we WELCOME Amateur and Pro Photographers, all kinds of Models, Actors, Hair Stylists, Make Up Artists & Body Painters.  All levels of experience welcome.

We also have  a FB page  https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProAmPhotography/


PHOTOGRAPHERS & MODELS:  Classes & Workshops!  Select small group shoots in studios, homes, and on location workshops and shoot adventures.  Come.  Create. Learn. Improve.  We share your DEDICATION TO FINAL RESULTS. Expert teaching  - can help with all elements of shooting, pre and post production, as needed. We share props, equipment and studios, wardrobe, as well as organized advice, and open networking, or critique also coaching for models and photographers 1-1 and at events.


Pro-Am MODELS are granted and retain the RIGHT to approve or veto any of the images we shoot. Models can ALWAYS dress in ANY style (provided they are not in This Seasons Designer wear). 

MINORS: Minors should pay the shoot fee first time out, as well as membership  and always bring a custodial parent.

MUAS: Request a shoot to suit your book. Models can be as extraordinary and fantastic as your make up and hair stylist vision! 

Some members may be brand new to working with lighting or models, but can work closely with instructor  (often Britt) so you WILL get results! Professional photographers also come for the ease, fun and pleasure of a shoot with Britt and Pro-Am.

It is requested everyone shooting aims to post your best images here within 2 weeks and we can assist with this goal at every step. They can be posted up to 10 mg. Please no behind the scenes images of models or anyone without arrangement, and No Touching The Models!

INSTRUCTION FROM A UNIQUELY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL TEACHER & PHOTOGRAPHER & FEMALE. x MODEL:  The group leader / primary instructor is a very capable qualified professional teacher with many years of useful experience on both sides of the lens. As a woman, along with her expertise, she is able to support and create the scenarios needed for better model and photographer participation and images.

MOST 'MEET-UPS' DO NOT PROVIDE… A fusion of both portfolio-building and photography techniques along with assistance and education in all elements involved, at almost every event.

REPUTATION: The most active and educational, most caring, longstanding with more graduates AND results than any other ... Weekly for more than FIVE years now, Pro-Am has proved itself the number one for safety and professional model support and response to photographers needs.  

Check out all of our albums too. All kinds of artists have enjoyed and benefited by Pro-Am

PORTFOLIO BUILDING, PERSONABLE TEACHING: It's just as important to us as it is to you that we get a stellar final product - and that you walk away with informed accessible education and images / Art as well.

ACCESS TO UNLIMITED SUPPORT: You'll be able to improve on expertise with lighting, model interaction, direction and posing, camera settings, composition, and  technical support, using LightRoom or PhotoShop for post-production, and more. For models stylists and photographers, at and before or after the shoot you can ALL have help with etiquette and communication, and more

PRICING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: $23 annual subscription price, due within 4 days. Shoots fees apply. 50% discount on shoot fee if you bring a new member - sign up at least 4 days before the shoot.

PRICING FOR MODELS: Free two week trial. Shoots are FREE. Coaching is included FREE. Web images, some prints and most  edits FREE. $23 annually requested donation after 14 days.

SAFETY: My main concern is that all events will be safe short term and long term. and effective as well as fun

DISCOUNTS: Prior to 24 hours of the shoot there is a price reduction always in effect. Members only with cameras please.

CANCELLATIONS: Our group is dedicated, busy, and professional. It can take immeasurable hours of work to get an event to go ahead and it will always be in response to for members who say they want it ... Once you confirm a shoot, we cannot provide a refund without 24 hours notice.
