What we're about
To become a member of this group you must also request membership to our new site too...
That being https://www.meetup.com/Buffalo-Figure-Photo... (https://www.meetup.com/Buffalo-Figure-Photography-Meetup-Group/) too...
This group shoots outdoors or in our studio, depending on the weather. You will gain portrait, anatomy, and lighting experience. You will meet and learn to work with figure models. And you will benefit from all of it.
This group's fine-art, bodyscapes, glamour, pin-up, and other styles figure shoots are held weekly or at least semi-monthly.., thee most often in WNY.., at thee least cost.., and we bring in the greatest variety of top notch models from around the country and the world. We can do this because we operate completely non-profit. Our models are paid well 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 nude models. When not to sign releases, knowing 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... But.., this is not a group for lurkers.. We will cut and block members twice a year, If they do not attend at least one of our sessions in the preceeding six month to support the effort.
