Have you ever wondered how photographers create those stunning photographs of beautiful women in magazines like Playboy, FHM, etc? Turns out there's more to it than just finding a pretty girl and taking photos of her.

There are logistics involved like FINDING the model, securing a location, finding a make-up artist, gear choices, model releases, wardrobe, etc etc.

In this 2-hour lecture style meetup, veteran photographer Mark Daughn will give you a crash course on how to successfully shoot this type of photography. He will walk you through his process of gear selection, location scouting, and more.

You'll learn how he approaches posing, communication, and collaboration with his models to put them at ease in front of the camera while still realizing the vision for the shoot.

Mark will also be accompanied by professional model +Luana Lani . She will be on hand to answer questions about which variables can make or break a model shoot, as well as how best to interact with your model.

This is a MUST attend FREE meetup!

*Note this meetup will be "lecture style".

But wait, there's more! 🙂

On the following day (Saturday), Mark has agreed to stick around and do an in-depth crash-course seminar for those really interested in taking their photography to the next level.

He'll be going into MUCH more detail on how to photograph women, and he will be demonstrating lighting setups using Luana Lani as his model.


*note* This is a demonstration, and due to time constraints the attendees will not be shooting the model.
