FREE Photography Meetups – Texas Photo Shoot Workshops

January 13, 2017

Many photography groups started out on Meetup before Facebook was around.  But we still use it.  The app is even easier to use now.  Yes there’s a fee but many right it off as marketing as we do.

For those that missed our monthly FREE Photography meetup at – Mark Your calendar if you ever want to attend… we meet the second Thursday of every Month from 6-8ish and – it’s SW HOUSTON TEXAS area if your ever in the area.

NOW we have our Sponsor Houston Camera Exchange coming to let us sample new toys that we hope you can test and purchase in their store after learning how it works best for your clients.

I can hear you now say, WHAAAAA!!
Add us to your calendar!

We had a small crowd 20 come have a little fun with some cool lights shooting a few models.  

Any models that want to come join the fun are welcome.  
You can RSPV here and get reminders via email…

As a Photographer you should expand your portfolio as wide as you can and go outside the box to see what works for you.

Advertisers already shoot lifestyle photographer and if you want to sell your photos to stock photography sites, you might want to get into lifestyle phoyography more.

Editorial lifestyle is usually an action image or shows the model doing ordinary things such as talking on the phone, playing tennis, having a picnic or walking a dog.

We are being this opportunity to photographers this weekend at Binders Gardens Outdoor Venue.  We set up a Beauty Fashion Lifestyle Photo Shoot Workshop on Feb 6 from 3-6pm close to sunset.

We have new models and some really experienced ones coming to make this an amazing fun shoot.  We will have staged areas as always for your entertainment.  The studio will also be available to shoot models with a white backdrop.

We hope to see lots of models actions with Balloons, skateboard, fishing, boating, badminton, golfing, bike riding, gardening, picnics, running and fruit picking models.  They always surprise us with their talented actions.  And this is the shoot for models to turn into actors.

Once a year we host a Teen Vogue photo shoot Workshop for teens 12-17. They get makeup provided with hair by signing up. Shoot three hours and some amazing photos to share.

We have teen models that come in from Dallas to Galveston to get involved in this shoot as this is popular with many photographers that shoot Seniors or want more Creative Senior photos in their portfolio to attract more Senior Clients.

This year the location is at Binders Gardens Venue in Needville. The shooting locations are endless as we will set up some cool props for models to shoot around.

In the past we have hosted this at Soccer fields, Golf Courses, Local Popular Parks, Downtown Discovery Green Park, one at Mercer and once before at Binders Gardens. We are exciting to do this again this year.

Photographers come to shoot sometimes with just their camera but we have Mentor Photographers setup Studio lighting outside to help many capture those amazing images that make the sky colors pop.

This is a very popular shoot and the best teen models are signing up since they don’t want to miss this one. We have the best makeup artist lined up already with a few more on stand by if we need a few extra.

Join us this year on March 6 to our annual Teen Vogue Shoot.

Photographers special dropped price is $75 – sign up link here:

Models ages 12-17 registration price of $50 – sign up link here:

Also we have one free workshop on the books with only two spots left for it. Come to our monthly meetups on the second Thursday of every month at 7pm at Binders Gardens Venue in Needville.

For years we have rented many venues to do the Texas Photo Shoot Workshops. We have many times wanting one particular location and it was a small window to get it a few years ago, but it was snatched up before we could blink. Looking for a Studio again was one of our goals over the past few years and on our wish list was land that we could shoot on. Well our dreams have been answered and it’s not just any old land, it’s amazing and spectacular and grander and rustic and breath-taking and now it’s our home.  And it smells so good and it’s just very peaceful.

As we plan to move and still do our planned workshops, we have so many things we want to do with our new Venue. It’s been used as Weddings, Workshops, painting groups, tea parties and private company parties. 

 Now we are thinking outside the box. Our imagination is so big but not as big as our pocket books. So we will take baby steps and put all our resources and pennies into making it even more Enchanting without taking the county feel away one step at a time.  

To describe this location is not even going to do it justice and neither the photos that will be posted. The lake that covers the property is amazing as it sits in the middle of the surrounding chapel, big house, small office, gazebo, wishing well, several arches, several separate rose gardens, several sitting areas, water fall, boat prop for photos, wind mill, covered bridge and patio area all on 5 acres. 

This is our little piece of heaven.

 What is amazing is the history of this location on how this one couples dream was to have this for their family as sickness and death stopped them from fulfilling their dream. 

 So my goal is to keep the dream alive and just add a few touches to make it just want it was meant to be; enjoyed by all.  Next door there is a larger church and the other side is the local Restraunt that caters and across the street is Needville High School.

Thank you for all the wishes on our new place. Our friends and family are the best ever. We hope to have an open house soon for family at Thanksgiving and then our Grand opening for the public to come see bluebonnets bloom everywhere. 


We will still continue to rent different venues but we will also own one. We hope to use our resources and network to help offer many the opportunity to come shoot, and make memories at this NEW VENUE OF OURS.
