What we're about

SNAP: Social Network of Artists & Photographers is : Portrait oriented photography and life figure drawing group. We host high quality photo shoots and drawing events in studio, outside, and more. Professional level lighting, great models, make up artist, and more with a laid back low key style.

Photography meetups in a professional studio environment. Bringing together amazing Atlanta photographers, artists, models, make up artists, wardrobe specialists and more. Come to one of our shoots and leave with portfolio worthy photographs.

Our life drawing figure art events feature experienced models in various dynamic poses, lighting and setups. Whether a seasoned artist, or just looking to start drawing, this is a great way to work on your art. We typically hold 1 or 2 events per month, on a Tue or Thurs for 2-3 hrs each and range between $10-15 to attend. These are typically 18+.

Why should you come to SNAP Events?:

We provide a very well thought out setup for lighting, as this is the most important thing in any photograph. We use our equipment and facilities to deliver lighting that will be difficult to replicate at home in both setup and numbers. We provide a great value by splitting the costs of models, facilities and equipment up to give you an amazing experience at a fraction of the cost.

Our drawing events feature experienced models, comfortable setups for your supplies, varying lighting, dynamic poses and a great opportunity to learn from others around you. We try to make each session a unique opportunity to hone your skills in a relaxed atmosphere.

We have a very reasonable photographer to model ratio. It's important that you are able to work with the talent we bring in, so we match talented models together and make sure you have a chance to work with the talent.

If you are new, or do not wish to be surrounded by too many others, we provide what's called Spotlight Sessions which are small scale shoots capped out to 5~6 photographers and a very talented model. This allows you more time with the model, but also attention from SNAP instructors.

Workshops/Classes

SNAP has been hosting Classes and Workshops for many years now, before we even took this name. We have hosted over 40+ classes itself. We have the experience to back up the education, and the ability to give you the maximum value for your money.

If needs be we also provide one on one education ranging from learning how to use your camera all the way to studio shooting. All levels are covered.

We've done over 150 photography events already, and plan on doing so much more.

SNAP currently meets at three locations in Georgia.

We currently have our main studio in Alpharetta, but also use other facilities around town for photo events.

Kickin the Blues to Kick Colon Cancer

Sound Lab Music Studios

$60.00

SNAP is putting together a fundraiser event to help one of our photographers/models dad with his colon cancer battle. March is colon cancer awareness month, and the color is blue, so we are going to do a blue themed fun fashion/style event. We'll pull out the fancy makeup, props and wardrobe to deliver a unique shooting experience. You'll get some amazing headshots, fashion portraits and high end glam looks as well as feeling good about helping out our friend and colleague and raising awareness for an often overlooked, but far too rampant cancer. Heather, @photosanity, is going to be helping me organize the event as well as getting in front of the camera and I'm sure she'll be behind the lens some too. You can learn more about her father's fight here https://www.gofundme.com/z6rdcu-help-dad-fight-cancer?fbclid=IwAR3g1NjDkLrrejPAousCJxZAZ4stXuB1Kx6reOMW4eHBJT8XROcaoI6b2EY This is also going to be the debut photo event for SNAP Studio. We have an awesome new facility inside the Sound Lab Recording Studios in Alpharetta. It's 900sq ft of 24/7 access in an existing 15,000 sq ft facility. We are excited to get to show it off and have you out. Additional models will be added. I'll also post some of the the theme shots that Heather has picked out as inspiration, and some similar shots from an event we hosted with the same makeup and fashion styles. Model releases will be available for all with an additional $20 donation. Please use only the orange side door, you can't access the studio from the front door. There is plenty of parking in the back, side and front of the building.

Bodypainted Artscapes

Sound Lab Music Studios

$120.00

For this spotlight session photo shoot event, we are getting creative with a painted backdrop and a corresponding paint job on our model. See the other photos below for further inspiration. We will likely get 2 paint jobs in, one being more fashion headshot oriented and one being full body with a matching backdrop. Very limited spaces available. $40 optional model releases. Model: Adrianna Jade

Polka Dot Immersion - Figure

Sound Lab Music Studios

$120.00

Inspired by Yayoi Kusama's styling of Clooney for W Magazine, we are going to be turning SNAP Studio into a bi-colored polka dot fantasy set. There will be two full sets, with the room split down the middle. Half black with white dots, the other white with black dots. All the furniture and accessories will be painted and covered to match. I have well over 500 dots to install on the walls and floors. I anticipate it being pretty mind blowing and a real sensory trip. This is an 18+ figure art nude shoot. The only thing in the scene not polka dot related, will be the form of our model, Kim. This spotlight session has very few spaces available, and this set will only be up for a limited time with a few event offerings. Optional model releases will be $40ea

Polka Dot Immersion - Fashion

Sound Lab Music Studios

$80.00

Inspired by Yayoi Kusama's styling of Clooney for W Magazine, we are going to be turning SNAP Studio into a bi-colored polka dot fantasy set. There will be two full sets, with the room split down the middle. Half black with white dots, the other white with black dots. All the furniture and accessories will be painted and covered to match. I have well over 500 dots to install on the walls and floors. I anticipate it being pretty mind blowing and a real sensory trip. Our models will be wearing appropriately styled outfits and accessories, fitting into their scenes perfectly. SNAP model Sarah Hermann will be anchoring this shoot and helping me with the styling. Another model will be added later. Optional model releases will be available for $20ea. I think you'll get some gallery worthy shots here.
