• Film Noir Themed Group Shoot

    Needs a location

    $120.00

    Woohoo! It’s time for our next group shoot and it should be a lot of fun. The theme is going to be Film Noir…detectives, gangsters and beautiful femme fatales. I’ve put together a Pinterest Board with lots of ideas and inspiration for this shoot. https://www.pinterest.com/fbrown0000/noir/ The Pinterest board is just to give a feel for the theme for the shoot, but we'll be in a cool location with dramatic lighting and some fun props (guns, piles of cash, martinis, whiskey bottles). The plan is to have 2-3 models with 10-15 photographers. Laine and Danial are our first two models. The way the past couple of meetups have been run seems to work well, so we'll keep that format…we’ll have one area where photographers take turns shooting one-on-one using strobes and one area where multiple photographer can be shooting the other model while they wait for their turn to shoot one-on-one. For the one-on-ones, each photographer shoots for 5 minutes. Once everyone has shot, we’ll start over with a different look. Lights, strobes and triggers will be provided, all you need to bring is your camera. If you're interested in attending this meetup, the cost is $120. I'm requiring a small $20 deposit via PayPal to hold your spot. You can pay the remainder in cash at the meetup or you may pay the full amount when you pay your deposit, whichever is easier for you. I'll message you my Paypal info when you RSVP. The studio is in the south side of downtown Los Angeles. The exact location will be sent to people who RSVP and pay the deposit.

  • Group Shoot With Two Models

    Needs a location

    It’s time for our next group shoot. This is going to be next Sunday, August 5th. Since this is pretty short notice for the shoot, it’s also going to be a smaller, more casual shoot at a house in the Silver Lake-Echo Park area. There's going to be an area with a black backdrop and strobes and several other areas around the house to shoot natural light. The plan is to have two models and 8 photographers. The way the past couple of meetups have been run seems popular, we'll keep that format...We’ll have one area where the photographers take turns shooting one-on-one with one of the models using strobes and one area where multiple photographer can be shooting the other model while they wait for their turn to shoot one-on-one. For the one-on-ones, each photographer shoots for 5 minutes. Once everyone has shot, we’ll start over with a different look. Here’s a Pinterest board with some inspiration for this shoot: https://www.pinterest.com/fbrown0000/shoot/ If there’s a lot of photographers interested in this shoot, there’s a possibility that I’ll move it to a large studio and hire an extra model. Here's our two models Amber https://www.meetup.com/LA-Group-Photo-Shoots/photos/28840185/#[masked] Meagan https://www.meetup.com/LA-Group-Photo-Shoots/photos/28840185/472188723/#[masked] If you're interested in attending this meetup, the cost is $100.

  • Two Models In Studio With Light Wall

    Needs a location

    I’m putting together another model shoot for June 24th. This time it’s in a really cool studio with a built-in light wall. The plan is to have 2 female models with 10 photographers. The models will take turns in front of the light wall, there will be a second location set up for shooting the model that is not in front of the light wall. Photographers will take turns shooting for about 5 minutes at a time. Strobes and triggers will be provided, all you need to bring is your camera. I’ve put together a Pinterest Board with some ideas and inspiration for this shoot. Right now there's a few photos that I found that were taken in the studio we'll be in and some other photo that I thought would be cool inspiration. https://www.pinterest.com/fbrown0000/lightwall/ Also, I found this cool video shot in the studio we'll be shooting in. https://www.instagram.com/p/BjNeCQ8nCdT/ The studio is in the south side of downtown Los Angeles. The exact location will be sent to people who RSVP. There's going to be two female models for this group shoot. She was so awesome in the rain room shoot that I'm bringing back Ginger for the light wall shoot and we have Savanna as our second model. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zdlnqzaxbjqxu2c/AADzRFzYV4gqAbh5K2JtXp4Ba?dl=0 If you're interested in attending this meetup, the cost is $140.
