Group shoots

Photographer: Mark Anderson, STUN
MUA: Green Bay Fear crew
As I mentioned yesterday, I pretty much got my start with a local photographer who coordinates a model/photographer group in town (Mark Anderson, STUN Photography / Group is called FUSE fotogroup). He had been doing themed monthly group shoots. While the group no longer meets that often, there are a couple group shoots still held every year. One of the first larger group shoots I participated in is called Models, Monsters and Motors. There is a pinup/classic cars portion, and later in the day we transform into zombies and other creepy creatures and head into the haunted house for a darker twist. The event is actually coming up at the end of September...If you are in WI, I highly suggest you check it out!

These group shoots have provided me with an opportunity to practice, to learn, and to network with other photographers, models, and hair/makeup artists. It was events like this that allowed me to make connections and set up one-on-one shoots. They provide a stepping stone, in a sense. The events are public and open to all levels. That being said, when setting up future one-on-one shoots, people are always encouraged to do a little research on each other, to be smart and safe about this next step. Follow some common sense and tips from other people who have been there, and you can end up making some great, long lasting connections and create some beautiful pieces of art.
