I've gotten many requests from membets who want to have a general membership meeting so they can meet one another and learn from one another. Our meetup has photogrphers, models, MUA's, designers, etc. So there's lots of variety right here in our own group that we can tap into.
We're a small and specialized photography group with a focused interest area. I feel this is a big advantage in planning and organizing productive meetings. Right now my time and focus are directed at putting together workshops. I am asking that one or two Meetup members accept the role of assistant organizer.
The assistant organizer's principal task would be to organize general membership meetings. The assistant organizer will work with the group and with me to establish meeting agendas, identify topics to be explored, and possibly bring in guest guest speakers or organize field activities.
This Meetup presents workshops and classes that provide experience and instruction in fashion/glamour photography. The purpose is to give members hands on experience working with models in a photo studio and also provide classroom instruction. Discussion topics include camera settings, studio lighting, interacting with the model, use of wardrobe and makeup, the photographer's role in managing a photo shoot, and using Photoshop and other software to create high quality images.
Workshop attendees will enhance their understanding of studio lighting, be able to practice with a model in a live setting, and will learn about pre and post production processes.
The Meetup is open to all levels of photographers who want to enhance their knowledge and experience in fashion/glamour photography.
Each hands on workshop can accommodate up to six (6) photographers. Classes can accommodate up to ten (10) individuals.
Workshop coordinator Phil Kogan is a skilled studio fashion/glamour photographer. He wants to share his knowledge and understanding of fashion/glamour photography and help others enjoy this exciting field.
