Summertime brings so many things that we love: popsicles, fireworks, shorts and flip flops, and lots of outdoor shooting opportunities. Eric and I are really passionate about hosting events for photographers (both free and paid), so we are excited to announce a few fun summer photography events and hope that you are able to make it out to one (or all) of these get togethers!

Summer Photography Events

Coffee Meetups

Let’s all get together and talk about photography over a cup of coffee!
Our discussion topics will vary each month, we’ll talk about gear, shooting tips, and ideas to get your trigger finger going!

We’re announcing three different dates for this free social event, I tried to spread them out over different dates, times and locations so it would give everyone a chance to participate:

July 12th @ 10am –  Starbucks near Mt Trashmore (465 Investors Place, Virginia Beach, VA 23452)

August 8th @10amJava Surf Macarthur (223 E City Hall Ave, Norfolk, VA 23510)

Feel free to join us for one or all of these events. There is no limit on the number of photographers who are able to participate in these events, the more the merrier!

Wine and Beer Meetup

K.I.S.S. – Posing for Photographers

Date – Friday, August 11th at 6:30pm

Cost – $10 per person

Location – Sent in confirmation email

Back by popular demand Eric and I will help photographers get more comfortable posing people. Different subjects will be available to strut their stuff, and also help photographers find more flattering ways to photograph people. There will be hands on instruction from both of us throughout the event as well as one on one time to photograph models. There will also be a portion of the workshop dedicated to being “unposed” and getting a more natural look/feel to your images.
This is a great way to gain experience with people, get more comfortable with posing or just socialize with local peers.

Open to photographers of all skill levels

A $10 non-refundable retainer is required to hold your spot at this event and help ensure no-shows.
