Welcome to Pacific Northwest Photo Artists (PNPA), operated under Roman's Photography, a subsidiary of Roman Ansari Companies.
The goal of this group is to provide collaborative joint venues as frequently as possible, which in turn provide opportunities to models, photographers, videographers, MUAs, HMUAs, digital artists, life/figure painters, body painters, and mixed media artists to come together to benefit from the events we host.
This is an opportunity to further build your portfolio efficiently and effectively while keeping cost down and also gain experience to help progress in each of our respective careers.
This group is for you if you are:
1. A photographer/videographer who cannot afford the high cost of hiring models, MUAs, HMUAs, Designers, Wardrobe, Studio, Lights but would still like to build and expand your portfolio. Join one of our upcoming events where you simply come and everything is ready and set up for you. We are more than happy to help photographers who are starting out and/or need guidance. If you have an idea or theme in mindshare it and we will be happy to accommodate by creating and bringing together others that may be interested in the same. Power in numbers! This keeps the cost down for everyone involved.
2. A model that is interested in building your portfolio by joining a group to gain exposure and/or future paid gigs. By attending just one event, you will be able to walk away with a handful of looks done up by our staff photographers and other attending photographers to add to your port. Models with little to no experience are welcome as we have the structure to provide you with the support and tools you need to get started. Depending on the theme, we may be able to accommodate wardrobe, makeup, and hair for the models. We do not charge models anything upfront to join group shoots.
3. An MUA, HMUA, Designer, Stylist who is struggling to build a portfolio either because you do not have the financial means or lack of resources. We are open to working with you as we understand artists need help too.
4. A talented individual who is interested in hosting events via meet-up but you do not have a network to market yourself, the know-how to get started and/or the financial means to. If you’re interested in hosting your own meet-up in association with us, please contact the Organizer and our staff will touch base with you to set up a time to discuss logistics.
As we grow we will also be looking for Models that are interested in joining our group shoots and getting paid. To be considered for paid events you must either have shot for the group once and/or have worked with the Organizer on a project.
We also enjoy posting free events taking place around town which we believe are good for individuals to attend to gain experience. If you have an event you think can be beneficial to others, kindly message us the event details and we’ll be happy to share! Please share your event 2-3 weeks in advance to allow us enough time to get it on the calendar.
We welcome you all to collaborate and create wonderful amazing works of art for everyone to see, critique and/or share. If you have an idea, we are happy to listen and see what we can accomplish together. Feel free to message us on the meet-up site or contact us via any of the methods posted below.

Complaints against members causing drama, harassing other members and/or hitting on other members will result in removal from the group.
Please use discretion when joining this group. You should only be joining this group if you are looking to network with like-minded people.
