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...)

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/

Banner Update

Needs a location

It is time to update the Meetup banner photo. I see so many great images being taken at the many events. I'd like everyone to submit one of your favorite images. It can be any image you like as long as it is social media friendly and was taken at any of this group's Meetups (Model Meetup SIG, or the Ottawa Shutterbug also quality). Just upload your image by May 20th. The earlier you upload, the more comments it will get. Everyone gets a say. Just add a comment, telling the author why you like it. Even typing: "A+" is great - any comment counts. After May 20, we'll consider the submissions done and use the period from May 20 to May 31 to gather additional comments. The images with the most/best comments will be used to form an updated page banner, and their owners will of course have bragging rights. Just click ADD PHOTO and let's see what inspires you.

Spring Fling - 2019

Andrew Haydon Park

• What we'll do I've had many requests for another fun event like our very popular Fall Fashion events. So collected a list of many models who have expressed interest and scheduled this fun for all event. The goal is to work collaboratively; models and photographers, all part of this Ottawa Photography Meetup group to have a super networking day while creating great images for our mutual portfolios. The models are free to bring any outfits or styles they want to wear. The suggestion is any fashionable outdoor chic, which can get wet and/or stylish beach wear. This link has a selection of images representing some of the ladies who have expressed interest in attending. As others apply, I'll do my best to keep the folder updated. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/l6cbwefkb7f14dr/AABFWOh-XC-z_UlJ6ArAiSXga?dl=0 • What to bring Along with your camera, do bring any lighting and reflectors you may want to use.

Kaitlin Chapple - Lingerie & Swimwear

Mike Giovinazzo

CA$85.00

We are most fortunate to have the incredibly beautiful Kaitlin Chapple visiting our fair city once again. Kaitlin is a full time professional model and dancer based in BC, and traveling worldwide. She has extensive experience in many facets of modeling and dance as well as film and television. This is very special opportunity to work with Kaitlin in a low-ratio setting. For each session, I will be inviting only 2 photographers. Sessions are approximately 2 hours each so you get lots of time to explore many poses and lighting scenarios. You will work together with Kaitlin to create soft and sensual images. Our theme is Lingerie and Swimwear. Thus using a range of wardrobe and fabrics we will explore a variety of lighting constructs, settings and poses both in the studio and by the outdoor pool (weather permitting). No special experience is required for these sessions. You just need a camera with a standard hot-shoe adapter. All guidance, lighting equipment and props are provided. Our Model: Kaitlin Chapple (http://www.kaitlinchapple.com/) Photographers assigned: 2:00 - 3:50 PM 4:00 - 5:50 PM --- We are committed to providing a environment in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity. Harassment will not be tolerated from any person and will result in immediate expulsion without refund. All Participants are encouraged to report any incidents to any of the event coordinators. No Participant will be penalized or disciplined for reporting an incident. All Participants are expected to adhere to this policy, and will be held responsible for not following it.
