What we're about

www.jasonlanier.com

Meet Ups with Jason Lanier is a group formed to have monthly in-person and online meet ups with award winning photographer Jason Lanier. Regularly scheduled in-person meet ups will occur monthly in Southern California where Jason lives. Jason will also schedule meet ups when he travels across the United States while either shooting or conducting one of his workshops. In addition to the in-person meet ups, Jason will provide monthly online sessions where the group can get together from around the world and conduct a meet up online!

Each session will have separate pricing and location information. The purpose of this group is for us to get together as photographers and for me (Jason) to provide you with help as needed. Having taught workshops across the United States for over the last three years I am very well versed and comfortable with helping photographers of all different skill levels and backgrounds.

Shoots will consist of a variety of different types including using models, night photography, day photography and more. We will work on composition, exposure, lighting, posing, and other topics that the group would like to cover.

This group page will also contain all the information and registration for my workshops across the United States. I'm so grateful for all of you joining this group and hope to make great connections and have an amazing time with all of you!
