I created this group for photo enthusiasts who want to learn the basics of portrait and glamour photography that takes place in a small home studio or in a small location.

This group is for photographers, models, and make up artist of all levels.

The purpose is to learn how to take portraits and glamour shots in a small studio or small location. As well as to learn the in and out's from other more experienced individuals in this field.

In portraiture photography, beginners learn the basics of posing, the use of light (it is our brush), setting your camera and to create beautiful images.

Another aspect is glamour photography. Learn glamour photography.  How to pose, how to set the lighting in the studio, create themes, and more.

This will be accomplished through a series of workshops and shooting session for both portraiture and glamour photography. We use models (both genders) and make up artists with little or no experience.  This provides on field experience, better network opportunities and eventually to paid sessions.  Since we are a supportive group, images are provided to the models & MUAs by the participating photographers (may be a first time shooter to seasoned professional) from any workshop or shooting session.

Compensation is provided to the experienced models and MUA's I hire for the workshops and sessions.  It may be in the form of promotional products & gifts (from promoter or hiring entity), trade for photos and/or cash.  For some sessions, I provide transportation to and from the shooting site.

I will invite guest photographers and models to show their awesome work and to share their talents.

We will meet up with the purpose to hone your photography skills. To network with other photographers, models, and make up artists. I assure you a fantastic and fun time when we get together.
