Spring Meet Greet Shoot

April 5th, 2015 · announcement

bmng may 2015 flyer v2

The Spring Meet Greet Shoot is gonna be on Saturday May 16, 2015 from 3 to 6pm.

Gonna meetup at The Depot. Meet, greet and network from like 3 to 4ish. Then people will likely go shoot in the area, some cool locations in walking distance, Old Towne Helena, Buck Creek, the waterfall, etc.

It has become tradition for those still there at the end to go grab a meal together somewhere, with input from those still there, so if you can plan for another hour do so.
Because the light still maybe good until 6:30 or 7pm, the end time is not exact.

Also if new people are still showing up at 3:50pm we may extend the networking longer, before heading out to shoot. We try to wait until most that have rsvp’d have arrived before we go around an do short introductions from all in attendance.

Also since The Depot doesn’t have a large parking lot, if some can park in the Ampitheather / Park parking lot just across 261/Helena Rd that would be appreciated. We don’t need to hog all 20 parking spots at the Depot all afternoon.


I am posting the info here on our website, but to rsvp and comment and ask questions please do so a the event we created on facebook or our group page on facebook.

Birmingham Media Networking Group

presents our

Fall Meet-Greet-Shoot

Sunday October 27th


Avondale Brewery Co

201 41st Street South

Birmingham, AL 35222


Please RSVP at

Well as stated above we are gonna host our third BIG event this year. Even though our group has Birmingham in the name we have a number of members from all over the state (Fort Payne, Anniston, Tuscaloosa, etc) so please don’t think we only want local people.

With this Meet and Greet, shooting is completely optional. We wanted to use a venue in which shooting is possible, but we want everyone to know that they are NOT REQUIRED to shoot. Come out, mingle, talk and get to know the photographers, models, stylists, etc.  in the area. The old adage about “its who you know” still applies, and just by having profiles on model sites, it doesn’t really  mean you know anybody. Making a good impression in person, that is memorable, can sure go a long way. It’s a NO-PRESSURE environment meant to encourage everyone to have fun while getting their work seen by more of the local community.

Since more of the emphasis at this event is the networking, the shoot part isn’t supervised by us, all details regarding with whom you shoot, releases, and terms of the shoot are to be handled BY YOU. Be sure that you discuss the terms with your collaborators, and that all details are understood and all parties have a copy of the release.

A couple things to add.

Please RSVP by either filling out the form linked   here   or by sending the same info to the email address

The RSVP will allow us to plan correctly for the attendance. Members you need to RSVP as well.

Updating some stuff

June 16th, 2013 · announcement

Well I just recently removed some member pages, mainly because the people haven’t attended a event in well over a year. If you suddenly notice your page is gone that is the reason. I still have the member pages it just no longer public.
