Portrait Group

June 6 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:00 PM on day First of the month, repeating until December 5, 2022


This is the monthly meeting of the Portrait Group – first Monday of each month. An excellent chance to practice portrait photography skills and grow your portfolio.

The meeting is a practical photography session. We use flash lighting in a studio setting. We will have 2 sets operating and 2-3 models, so there will be ample opportunity to shoot.

Open to all MCC members (and visitors may attend up to 2 sessions).

If you want to shoot, please bring:

  • your camera (with a standard hot shoe on top for the flash trigger)
  • $10 for a shooters licence.

Please come along at 7pm to help set up. We start shooting at 8pm, and stop when the models say they’ve had enough (typically 2-3 hours).

Please remember that after the shoot you are required to send some photos back for the models. (See https://melbournecameraclub.org.au/interest-groups/portrait-group/portrait-image-returns/)
