We are here for photographers who are interested in gaining studio experience, networking with other photographers for exchanging information and methods used.., improving their techniques, testing new equipment, getting used to working with nude models, and learning the differences in various types of female photography... Vintage, fine art, bodyscapes, glamour, and more. We shoot outdoors or in our studio, depending on the weather.
We hold fine-art, bodyscape, glamour, pin-up, and other styles figure shoots weekly or at least semi-monthly, thee most often in WNY and at thee least cost. We have top notch local models as well as those from around the country and the world. We can do this because we operate completely non-profit. Our models are paid their agreed upon rate and they are the only ones who see any money from these shoots.
Our goal is to grow awareness of this classic art. We look to create paying jobs for models and to assist them in building their portfolios. We help newbie models learn how to BE models. When not to sign releases, to know their worth, the going pay rates., etc. And of course we also provide much good for our photographer members too.., as described above.
Buffalo Figure Photography is the oldest such group of photographers in WNY. We are like a bowling team that meets on a regular schedule... We just don't care to bowl...
If you're serious about photography join us and benefit from all that we offer... This is not a group for lurkers and be aware that this site is simply a gateway... You must attend one of the listed events before becoming a full fledged member. After that we will continue to require at least one shoot every six months to support the effort.
