What we're about

Meet fellow photo enthusiasts near you! Come to a Photography Meetup to talk about the latest gear, swap tips and techniques, share your images and stories -- and have fun doing it!

This group is open to all;from beginner, amateur and of course to the more professional digital and film photographers. Only a handful of members are semi-pro, most are keen hobbyists and amateurs who just enjoy learning and practicing.

Be sure to set your e-mail notifications settings to not miss and events, announcements or discussions.

This is an active group with lots of opportunities for picture taking and fun exchanges with fellow photographers at all levels.

We ask members to contribute $5/year to cover the costs of site costing and administering the group. The individual events are generally free or have a cost recovery fee to share the event overheads (such a room rentals, speakers, special talent...). You can find the membership dues page at:

Our focus is general - landscapes, public events, nature, architecture, animals ...
Just about anything but people.

If your interests encompass people, then also check out the Ottawa Model Photography Special Interest Group. This "People" interest is handled with professional models who pose for portraits, boudoir, pin- up, glamour, fashion, art nudes, creative themes, cosplay...

Once you are a paid up member, of the Ottawa Photography Meetup, there is no added cost to join: https://www.meetup.com/Ottawa-Photographer-Model-Meetup/

Apprentice for a day

Needs a location


There was a lot of interest for my last "Photo Assistant Opportunity " http://www.meetup.com... (http://www.meetup.com/The-Ottawa-Photography-Meetup-Group/events/30095321/) I'll offer them again, but in the meantime allow me to leave this as an open invitation. What I'm suggesting is I work with you one-on-one and offer anyone interested personalized education in the form of "photo apprentice for a day". For a fixed fee of $100 I'll guide you through a photo shoot from start to finish. This is not me doing and you just looking, this is you doing and me coaching. What I'd work with you on is tailored to your needs. Here is a sample "day": 1-- Creating a shoot concept (approx 2 hours) 2-- Finding a model/client (1 Hour) 3-- Locating the props (variable) 4-- Scouting a location (variable) 5-- Planning and scheduling the shoot (variable) 6-- Doing the shoot together (approx 2-3 hours) 7-- Editing the final images (approx 2 hours) 8-- Presentation/deliver to the client/model (variable) The fee just covers my time and coaching presumed to be about a typical day. It is not a physical "day" but a typical work day (7-8 hours) spread out over several weeks as our mutual schedules permit. this can be adjusted if you need a bit more or less. You can bring your own talent, or I can usually help find make-up artists, models etc that you can help select. Also available for reasonable fees are access to my studio, props, paid model pool. I encourage you to use your own euipment, so you learn to better use your own gear, but I can also loan you whatever is needed to achieve your apprentice learning goals. I get various requests from models for photo shoots but I am very selective in which I can take on, and generally charge models for their portfolio work. If they are unable to pay the rates and agree to shoot with my apprentices, I add them to a waiting list. Then under this Apprentice program, you have access to some of the models I have on the waiting list. Since I have my own studio, I can make that available too, for a discounted rate of $15/hour under this program. If this is of interest just drop me a note at Mailto:[masked] and we can discuss a "virtual" day aimed at your personal needs.
