I am Robert Pear. Call me Bob. I'd like shots of subjects including backgrounds where subject "stands out" from good camera angles that succeed in emphasizing facial features, clothing, and overall appeal. I am open to most anything.
borderline pro - just need models to complete the package.
The July studio shoot and the beach shoot were great projects to learn how to take shots of models. We are all on the threshold of becoming pros - some of you are already there. I hope the photographers continue giving each other advice and the models do the same (they can advise the photographers as well as each other too) . If we work close together then each of us, as well as the group as a whole, will sharpen our skills by centering our efforts on what works and avoid spending time on what does not seem to work.
It's nice to have you with us. Here are some resources and inspiration until we meet-up in person!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about our meetup group.
Thanks for joining our group. I really like the images you have posted to your profile. I hope you can come to our MeetUps as they come along. I also HIGHLY recommend Salt Lake Fashion Photographers Meetup group. Tawni does an EXCELLENT job of organizing and goes to a lot of work to ensure a good time for all. At My Blink Studio we are focused on learning, experimenting, and having fun in a low-pressure, no judgment setting and we're happy to have you aboard! :)
For the December shoot there were actual sets, not just backdrops. It goes without saying there are model releases for each event, regardless of which group. For the Salt Lake Fashion Photography group, there is usually a charge to the photographers due to the expense of providing costumes, makeup, etc.
This is a continuation from the first message as there is a character limit. The last shoot with this group, which I missed as it was scheduled when I had to work, was with set scenes in a studio and I liked some of the images I've seen better, there was more focus, or seemed to be, rather than too many scenes to select from as can happen in an outdoor shoot in an interesting area.
I've been to two of the Salt Lake Fashion Photoshoots, and find there are a lot of models, a lot of photographers, and it's shoots are fairly loosely organized. Each photographer is given a sheet with the model's photo and contact details so we can provide photos to them. Same with hair stylists and makeup artists. Then at the shoot, each photographer asks a model to let them shoot, sometimes the photogs pair up or group together and same with the models. Kind of a free format shoot.
