The Southern California Photographers Association is a Meetup group focused on building up the skills and portfolios of Models, Photographers, Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists.

The group is hosted by award winning Los Angeles Portrait photographer, Dave Doeppel. Dave specializes in Artistic Portraiture, Pinup and Boudoir and tours around the country teaching photographers. He is also an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Our goal is to make you a better photographer by learning about lighting, posing, composition and everything else that goes into making award winning artwork.

Our shoots are fun and relaxed and we are hear to help.

We will be focusing on helping you increase your skills and in the process provide help and guidelines for creating images for publication.

How we run our shoots

Note: This is an adult only group. No one under 18 is admitted.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
