Dallas TFP Group Bohemian Collaboration

One of the first things I learned about TFP photography (Trade For Prints) was it is all about community and collaborations. The best way to learn a new craft is to find a community of like-minded individuals and ask questions. Learning how to communicate is just as important as learning how to use the dials on your camera.

Location and Theme

In March 2017, I hosted and organized a TFP photography group collaboration shoot. The TFP shoot utilized a bohemian concept and was an open meetup in the Dallas area. I shoot was hosted at White Rock Lake, a little east of downtown Dallas.

With the summer heat right on the horizon, I knew this would be a great time to organize a group meetup before it got too hot outside. We had around 40-50 creatives come out including models, photographers, stylists, and makeup artists. I really had a great time meeting so many new people on site, and getting to know the Dallas photography community. This was the first major event I hosted, even though I had done smaller more intimate events in the past.

Facebook Organization

I used Facebook to organize most of the shoot and to keep people updated on changes that occurred. I am a part of the DFW TFP group in Dallas, and they allowed me to make this an official event for the group.

What I learned from this TFP Group Collaboration

Next time, I feel like there should be multiple hosts for larger events. Meeting people and answering all questions on site turned out to be hectic for just one person. Also, I think I would make the event a few hours shorter and not so long. Many people came and went as they pleased, but I stayed the entire day. Multiple hosts will also help with time and scheduling. Overall, I am glad I did it and look forward to putting on more events in the future.
