CALLING ALL AMATEUR MODELS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS - Group shoot - TFP for models, only £10 per photographer!
Studio38Birkenhead is looking for members to attend their group shoot. It's based around Price Street Business Centre, 44 Price St, Birkenhead CH41 4JQ, UK Added 1555343579.
This event is on Monday, April 29th.
WELCOME TO THE STUDIO38 PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP (FORMERLY THE HAWKEYE PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP)!
Hawk Studio in Neston sadly closed at the end of 2018 but myself and fellow photographer Gwil Roberts have started up a new studio in Birkenhead so we are re-starting the old Hawkeye Group in our new studio - STUDIO38, Unit 38, Price Street Business Centre, Price Street, Birkenhead, Merseyside, CH41 4JQ!
This regular group meeting is aimed at providing an opportunity for amateur models and photographers to gain studio experience and collaborate on a mainly TFP basis (and also just talk photography to the only people who will listen to us all!). So that any nervous new models and photographers alike can be assured of a safe and comfortable way to ease in to the world of studio photography, there will be no nudity, lingerie, etc.
We will concentrate on teaching each other and practising lighting, camera technique, posing, etc. Between us we can explore themes that will help you gain professional clients such as fashion shoots (the studio has a modest but growing rack of clothes and props we can use), head-shots, beauty portraiture, family portraiture, etc. or more creative "fine art" themes. There are also a few good spots close by for "on location" shots. For our previous meet ups the models brought some fantastic clothes and we have used props like a guitar, replica guns, angel wings, etc. and effects like coloured gels and a smoke machine.
It will cost only £10 per photographer to help subsidise the studio costs, if enough people attend on a regular basis, there will hopefully be a small surplus to pay some expenses or fees to the models or buy fun things like smoke machine fluid and more props.
For now, models are asked to attend on a TFP basis but please don't think of it as "working for free" as you are a part of the group too - we want models to relax, have fun, learn a few things and get some good photos for your portfolio.
Our first few meetings were a huge success with models and photographers alike all having a great time and accomplishing everything they hoped for and much more, there is a great atmosphere and everyone has a lot of fun!
The next shoot is set for Monday 29/04/2018 start 6:30pm, finish 9:30pm. If attendance proves unexpectedly high then we can split into smaller groups and rotate on-location around the complex or in a hired room with shooting in the studio.
We have a facebook page and group so attendees can continue to share photos and ideas before and after the shoots - https://www.facebook.com/studio38group/
