About Me

FNS Group Shoots are currently on hiatus.
Please check back in the new year for future shooting events.
Send a message with your email address to be added to our mailing list.

If you have questions about the Group Shoots, studio rental, booking shoots, please send us a message that we can reply to instead of leaving a tag.
We also have a Photographer FAQ and a Model FAQ about the Group Shoots - Please have a look!

FNS Studios is located in Springfield MA in the Indian Orchard Mills, owned by photographer Lesley Arak (LesleyArakPhoto MM#4948)
(Former co-owner Matthew is no longer affiliated in any way, and has not been for several years. This page and the studio are maintained only by Lesley.)

-If you are a model and would like to book a one-on-one shoot with Lesley, please write to her at her personal MM page, #4948. This profile is for Group Shoots and studio rentals only-

The images in this profile were shot by Lesley, and they were all shot either in FNS Studios or the surrounding mill complex.

(Hello Hallmarkers! smile Lesley is class of '06)

Group Shoots

FNS Studios hosts Group Shoot events (aka portfolio development days or PDDs) every month.
They are usually held on the second or third weekend (Saturday/Sunday varies) of the month.

FNS Group Shoots are currently on hiatus.

Group Shoots: A group of awesome, experienced models are made available for photographers to shoot with one-on-one in a relaxed setting.
Shoot in-studio, outdoors and throughout the studio complex located in the historic Indian Orchard Mills.
Hair/Makeup Artist(s), costumes, tons of props, etc.

Frustrated by dealing with no-shows? We always book more models than photographers, so even if someone gets sick or has car trouble, there's still a whole room full of models for you to work with! All shoots are one-on-one!

Photographers - If you're interested in being notified about future Group Shoot dates, send us a message with your email address and we'll put you on the notification list. (This is the *only* thing that we'll do with your email address. No spam for you!)

You can see pictures taken by many different visiting photographers at past Group Shoots by clicking on our three "-Photos taken at an FNS Group Shoot" Lists.

Hallmarkers - We occasionally put together Group Shoots that are Hallmark only, to help you in finding models to shoot for your assignments. You are also welcome to attend our monthly Group Shoots, as many of your classmates from previous years have already done.

Models - Is one of your photos on our "Models we'd like to have come to a Group Shoot" list? (That's how we keep track.) If so, and you'd be interested in coming to one, drop me a line for more details!

Hair & Makeup Artists! - We are always looking for new Hair & Makeup artists for our Group Shoots. A great opportunity to collaborate and network! Work with new photographers & models. Add fab images to your portfolio. A space to play, and to try out new ideas and concepts! If you are interested in coming out for one of our Group Shoots, please send us a message!

**Please don't leave tags if you have questions or want to shoot - It's much easier and more organized if you send a message with your questions directly. Not going to respond to tags. Send a message. Hey, really! I see you starting to leave a tag with a question anyway! Cut it out! **

All friend requests accepted. - We're not "collecting friends", we're networking. Isn't that what this site is for, after all?
