What we're about
***Welcome to the Creative Photography: Food, Rooms & People Meetup!!!***
The Creative Photography: Food, Rooms and People meetupis designed to allow photographers to collaborate together to:
a) get nicely setup food photos,
b) find great locations for room photography, and
c) attend model/people shoots with creative lighting.
We mostly do model photo shoots with creative lighting right now and tackling a whole range of genre's, from glamour fashion to nude boudoir and everything in between!
If you are interested in helping to organize an event (i.e. find locations, wrangle models) please let me know!
Costs for events range from $5 to $170 depending on the cost of the event/meetup group.
*Please note, the Creative Photography Meetup is a not for profit group. All revenue from shoots (we price per shoot based on estimated costs) go back to the group for venues (mostly) and marketing.
All levels are welcome, HOWEVER a) this is a more professionally oriented group as a number of people in the group would like to generate revenue with their camera and b) this is a peer led group. If you are wanting to learn more about photography, you are welcome to join as there are people in the group who are able to help if you ask.
This group is for photographers, fashion designers, foodies, food stylists (if you're a stylist please let me know, we really want you in the group) and more photographers. Did I mention photographers?
*PS: we recently decided to keep this group more focused for those above, no offense to models, but we're not accepting models for the sole reason that it dilutes the group because we approach the industry in different ways.
Equipment. All you need is a camera that has a manual mode, preferably a DSLR. A tripod is recommended - the more gear you have the better.
Group policy: please read the group's Terms and Conditions (http://www.meetup.com/Create-Photography/pages/Terms_and_Conditions_for_the_Meetup_Group) which you are bound to if you are a member. We have a miss two events and you're out policy so please be sure to show up when you RSVP. We also would like you to upload your best/favorite photos to the meetup event page for the photo shoots you attend.
