What we're about

The NYC Strobist & Photoshop Collective is for people who own a Digital Camera with on or off camera Flash and want to learn to use them in a social setting.


We look for those who have an interest in "Off Camera Flash" photography - commonly known as STROBIST photography. Members joining this group should be comfortable with basic concepts of how to manipulate their camera to take a photo and able to use their camera outside of the Auto mode. We also encourage those who wish to learn or improve their skills with post processing of digital images using Lightroom, Photoshop and various image enhancing plug-ins. If you often look to another photographer and are not afraid to ask for help or offer solutions you may find you are a good fit with this energetic and active group of snappers.


If you are a model or ever thought about giving it a try, you are also welcome to join the group and take advantage of serious photographers of all levels. Great place to network, allow practice for both ends of the camera, build portfolios and practice collaboration and skills that come with being a part of a shoot!

Makeup Artists

We welcome you as well to join the group to practice your skills, try new concepts, network and build your portfolio!

Brooklyn Bridge Park


Let's take it to the Brooklyn Bridge Waterfront Park... This is a great time of year as the weather improves and with the recent time change it will give us an extra hour until the sun goes down. Hopefully we'll have a beautiful sunset with the east river and Brooklyn Bridge. Not to mention the beautiful night skyline of the city. *Models* note if you are waitlisted you will be moved up as attending as soon as I see you there...
