We had three people show for our rescheduled shoot at City Garden on Monday the 17th.  Although it was a little misty, the showers pretty much ended and moved off allowing us to shoot in calm weather until after 9pm.  The sunset was beautiful, the parking was no problem and City Garden was mostly empty.  It was a great time to shoot and feature all aspects of City Garden itself.  Some images will be posted shortly.

Please review the updated schedule in the blog as there are changes.  In addition, we will be sending out an email with all the details for the August meeting challenge.  Michael Daft will be moderating this meeting.

For July - I am checking to ensure that Aaron Fuhrman is still available to present to us.

As always - if you have any questions about our schedule, activities or the Guild in general, please feel free to email me (Randy Allen) at:

April Artists' Guild Photography Section Meeting

The April 15th St. Louis Artists’ Guild Photo Section meeting will be a model shoot at Studio 314 in midtown St. Louis. Find them at or (directions are available on their site). The meeting will start at 6:00 but please be there a bit early so we can take money and fill out appropriate model release forms. We will have a short meeting, explain the rotations, and tour the studio. Shooting will begin at 6:30 and end at 9:30.

Studio 314 is graciously providing 6-8 models, makeup artist (MUA), hair stylist, and their facility. You will have at least three hours to learn about shooting models and lighting. Professional lighting setups are provided and it should be a really great time and a good opportunity to get to know the folks at Studio 314! Thanks so much to Steve Grappe for his support of the Photography Section.

Please RSVP to Randy Allen - (636) 675-1258 only if you are definitely attending. We will be collecting $20.00 per photographer for Guild Members and $30.00 each for non-members. If you are a non-member the additional $10.00 can be applied to a Guild membership.

Some of this will go to pay the MUA, stylist, and models. The rest goes to the Guild. We are inviting anyone and everyone who is interested to this event and it will be posted in many different areas. We have four studio setups spread over 5080 square feet. Folks will rotate from one to another and have an opportunity to shoot all the models if you so desire. There will be 6-8 models with one model per location. Extra models will be changing outfits or makeup.

You should bring your money (cash preferred) to the event and ensure you RSVP to reserve your spot. We will limit the number attending so that each photographer will have dedicated one-on-one time with each model - no "Hey, look over here...", trying to attract the model’s attention...

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Dave Groen and Randy Allen
