Welcome to Red Couch Studio.

Hi everyone,

We are a group of some of the area's finest photographers, models, MUA’s and artists. Our members are primarily located in Northern California, and range from full time professional photographers and models MUA’s to serious amateurs and beginners, but we all share a passion and commitment to what we are doing, creating art. Most of us use state of the art digital equipment, some use film, and we have a few with medium or large format cameras. Our styles vary and techniques are different, but we share a love of photography and are willing to share it with others. The models we feature are widely varied, most well established full time professional models in fashion, print, glamour or art; sometimes part time or beginners striving to get into the industry. It is our hope that this Meet Up Group will benefit all who are members.


Most of our meetups are actual photo shoots and/or workshops. I say most, because about twice a year I do hold an eat and greet meetup. Also most of our meetups do have a cost associated with them. Cost does vary depending on the meetup depending on the model. and how many models we have for the shoot, etc. Also if the model needs to travel will add to the cost. We will also have shoots like the Las Vegas Shoot and White Sands that will cost more due to travel and hotel expenses. But believe me, these shoots are a lot of fun. Please also make sure you read the refund policy for each shoot, we do adhere to that policy 100% with no exceptions.

I am looking for members to be active in this group, not spectators. Most people join the group to learn lighting, working with great models, model posing techniques, updating portfolio with top models, share ideas and experiences, etc, and you can’t do that unless you attend the meetups. I am not looking to have the biggest group, just the best, which we are.

So, here are the requirements for the Photographers to become and stay a member of this group:

1. After joining the group, try and attend a meetup to make sure this is for you.

2. If you decide to stay as part of the group, please stay involved. Attend meetups, or at least check our group often.

3. I will from time to time delete members that have not been active in our group. Being active means attending meetups, or at least checking our group on a regular basis.

As I have said many times, my purpose in this group is to have an active group, not to try and accumulate as many members as possible. 

So, If this is what you are looking for, make this your home, interact, communicate, and attend the events as often as you can. Share your ideas, questions, and even concerns with us. You are among friends and we all strive to excel in our craft and help others along the way. Thanks for your interest in our Group!

Hope to have a chance to meet you soon.
