Calling all makeup artists and photographers!!! This group is for makeup artists looking to get great photos of their work and for photographers to get great makeup shots for their portfolios. As a makeup artist the hardest part of getting your work out there is getting great photos with great lighting. As a photographer taking shots of makeup and all of its dimensions can be some of the toughest shots to master. Taking photos of makeup requires expert knowledge of lighting, closeups, and angles. Conquering makeup art photography is unlocking expert skills as an artist. Together I bring about the opportunity for collaborations, learning, and growth. Join us to bring your work to the highest of possibilities! It all starts with networking.
Our goal as MUA's is to get recognized and employed. For this we need excellent models and great captures of our work. We can attain this by collaborating with professional-oriented models and photographers. Our chances for success depend on everyone doing their part - and to the best of their abilities. Therefore, we have a code of conduct that will be followed:
Collaborations require participation and reliability. If you RSVP for a portfolio event you are agreeing to honor your commitment and participate as required to successfully accomplish the stated objective. As these events are typically TFP (trade for print) this is not an invitation to let your collaborators down by not respecting their investment of time and effort. We take the goal of becoming professional seriously and respect our collaborations as we would a paid-for commission. As you are not being charged for participation please appreciate this opportunity and bring your A-game.
We also have 'non portfolio' events. Some may be cross-posts from private events or listings of job and educational opportunities. Also, ANY member can create an Event Suggestion and, if enough members are interested, it'll create an actual event with you as the host.
PLEASE NOTE: PREFERENCE WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE MEMBERS WHO DEMONSTRATE RELIABILITY, QUALITY AND A WILLINGNESS TO PROGRESS AND MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.
It should not have to be said, but anyone violating these terms or the rights of others will be banned. Some people just don't 'get it' nor have had peers address them appropriately - WE WILL. Do not DM members without prior invite; please keep communications and participation in events professional and goal-oriented; and, above all, let's get published!
