What we're about
The purpose of this Meetup Group is to provide a studio location and workshops for freelance and fine art photographers to develop their craft at an affordable cost. We are able to keep the cost of the studio use down due to our coop structure.
At the Miami Photography Collective we feature fashion and design, portraiture, the performing arts (dance and theater) and of course, street photography. Each of these thematic areas has made a great contribution to photography throughout the world. We hold events in each of these topic areas. The group will facilitate events, including workshops, networking meetings, and photography exhibits.
We will be offering a series of monthly thematic workshop including: i) Basic Studio Lighting, ii) Fashion Photography, and iii) Portrait Photography as well as other workshops on special topics. Workshops are be small, highly interactive, and feature outstanding models, as well as photographers and models visiting Miami from other parts of the world. We will shoot in both a studio setting, and on location, taking advantage of the many great venues in the Miami area. Fees for the workshops go to cover the costs of these activities, including the rent and utilities at the studio, the lighting equipment, and the fees of instructors and models.
We are fortunate to have access to a photography studio and gallery for the meetup group just minutes from Wynwood, the airport and the beaches, and with public transportation nearby. The studio consists of approximately 500 sq feet of private shooting space and a large 2000 sq foot common area that may be used for special events. The studio is operated as a photography cooperative, although it may be used both by members and non-members.
The studio offers a full professional lighting setup, including: - 3x 500W Hensel monolights w. Pocket Wizards - softboxes, strip box, snoot, beauty dish and umbrellas - seamless paper background (stock white and grey paper) - a variety of props and accessories.
