What we're about

I created this group for photo enthusiasts who want to learn the basics of portraiture, live shooting, fashion, glamour and other genres of photography. Sessions are conducted in a small home studio or in a small venue. We also conduct sessions in other parts of the city, depending on theme.

This group is for photographers, models, and make up artist of all levels.

Another purpose is to learn the in and out's of the business side.

I offer beginners sessions. Where participants learn the basics of posing, the type of lights to use (they are considered our brushes), setting their camera and to create beautiful images.

There are different sessions like glamour, fashion, couples, on location and more. We cover posing, how to set lights in the studio or outside or with ambient light as we create the theme and more.

This will be accomplished through a series of workshops and shooting session of the genre chosen. We use models (both genders) and make up artists with little or no experience when required and available. This provides on hands experience, more network opportunities and eventually paid sessions. Since we are a supportive group, images are provided to the models & MUAs by the participating photographers (who may be a first time shooter or a seasoned professional) from any of the workshops or shooting sessions.

Compensation may be provided to the more experienced models and MUA's I hire for a session. Compensation may be in the form of promotional products & gifts (from promoter or hiring entity), trade for photos and/or cash. For some sessions, I provide transportation to and from the shooting site.

I will invite guest photographers and models from time to time, to show their awesome work and to share their experiences with us.

We will meet up with the purpose to hone your photography skills. Network with other photographers, models, and make up artists. I assure you a fun time when we get together.
