I’ve been attending Science Fiction and other genre conventions for about 20 years. For half of that time, I’ve been engulfed in photography as a hobby.

The Long Island Portrait Photography Workshop is held by a group of photographers who meet to develop and improve our portraiture photography knowledge and skills. Each meeting is an opportunity to work collaboratively on posing, lighting, composition, setup, exposure, as well as post processing techniques.
We’re always looking for individuals who would like great portraits of themselves in exchange for their modelling time. While we love working with professional models, we also want to work with people without the experience. You don’t need any modelling experience to come down to our events.
For more information, or to RSVP I can be contacted through the group email at email@example.com
The “Long Island Portrait Photography Workshop” will be holding a FREE portrait photo shoot at the Bethpage Community Center (In the Ice Skating Rink building). This is your chance to get great quality photos for your website, social media, or personal use, completely FREE. Our open sessions are done on a TFP (Trade For Photos) basis.
Subjects are responsible for their own clothing, hair and makeup. Costumes are welcomed, but all clothing must be “family” appropriate. All of our photography is “G rated” as per the rules of our facility.
Please RSVP with me if you plan to attend.
