This meetup group is dedicated to portrait photography and those who are chasing the perfect image… Its all about the light!
This group is for photographer of all levels who want to improve their skills. The PPoD will have workshops, club shoots, and other events related to all aspects of photography. Our primary focus is on portrait photography with an emphasis on learning how to light subjects with both natural light and off camera flash.
As your group leader I have personally taught over 4500 people in the Cincinnati, Dayton and Southern Ohio with over 7500+ hours of training experience. I have worked with major fortune 500 companies and with models from the agencies of Elite and Ford. What does that mean for you? A real experience and a solid foundation of learning and training from someone who knows how to communicate these complex subjects. Photography is not easy and everyone is not a photographer. However let me explain it in a way that does make it easy. Let me guide you thought this amazing and exciting world of photography.
I am always present on all meetup's so no matter what the topic you will learn even if its just a portfolio build. I have been featured in Photography Master Class Magazine with cover, see here.

My goal is to create a group free from the traditional limits of most photography clubs. If your reading this far you know exactly what I mean, so everything you hate about the other clubs you won't find here. If you want to hang with some of Dayton's best photographers, highly skilled teachers, in a relaxed atmosphere. If you want to be around people who are pushing image creation to the limits than this is the group for you. Besides the learning aspects we are all about having an amazing time and making new friends.
We will be having exciting free/paid workshops, meet and greets and other exciting photography related events. This will include software lessons at my 18,000 sq. foot building in Monroe Ohio (right across the street Treasure Island flee Market right off 75) displayed on a 100 inch screen in full HD. This space is heated and cooled space with individual restrooms for men & women. We can accommodate a seamless for studio lessons as well. A great space to learn more about photography. We will also have on location meetup's with amazing agency models. I specialize in lighting both natural and flash. Please look at my gallery here under photo's to see examples.
Take your photography to the next level by joining this group. Its going to be an amzing ride!
