Family & Friends Portraits.

Change of plan.

Tonight if you attend you can bring along your friends and family as well.

A maximum of 6 people per member ie 7 including yourself.

• All I ask is you pay for one extra person ie £10 in total.

You're welcome to come regardless which is why I have set the meetup fee to £5.

I will then supply my full studio equipment for you and yours to take professional photos with my help and guidance if needed.

You can either use my camera or your own or of course use my camera with your memory card in. Another option is for you to use my camera and card and bring a USB stick and transfer the files to that.

My camera takes compact flash cards and Cfast cards.

My other camera takes Compact flash and SD (SDHC) cards.

I will bring my laptop and dye sublimation printer which gives and instant dry borderless photo.

I will provide five 300 dpi 9"x6" full colour high gloss photos printed on the night for you to take away.

So come along take loads of photos and print five of your best ones plus learn how to set up a studio light rig with back drop.

• Be quick because I am going to limit this meetup to 10 members max assuming everyone will bring 6 others then that makes 70 people, ie 10 members and 6 each attending.

If each member brings fewer family and friends then I will allow more to attend to the maximum of 70 people max.

Although the number of others you can bring shows only one extra this is to stop confusion. Please tick the one extra and pay for the one extra and then let me know how many up to the max of 6 you are inviting, cheers.

Put on your best togs and bring a big Xmas smile.

Important!

• Please message me with how many you are bringing ASAP thanks.

Text me on my mobile[masked] as well please if possible to give approx number of people you are bringing.
