Studio Photography Group

Full time commercial/model studio photographer with a great New York Loft style studio in Pontiac. 

Looking to combine photography and socializing.  Concentrating on studio photography, styling and creating custom backgrounds and sets.

Cameras will be used in Manual mode, hot shoe is required to fire off studio strobes.  A working knowledge of your camera for studio shooting.  Please bring your manual if you're not familiar with most of your settings.  Helping with your camera and settings will be with another attendee with the same brand of camera (if there is one) and your manual.


My blog is which covers all kinds of day to day studio shooting.  My blog has a great series of free training videos worth checking out.  Also available are my dvds available to photographers and models. 

All "artistic" levels invited.

Pingpong, darts, drinks, munchies, music, dancing and oh yeah photography will be on the menu.

Hope you can make it.  This is a no fee meetup, but you are required to read my meetup pdf.  Simply go to the Nav Bar>More>Files.  It will be obvious if you don't... and everyone will yell out "Your Fired!"
