I love to take photos of the usual and really want to develop some creativity. I'm retired and enjoy hiking, travel, and exploring San Francisco. Currently using point and shoots, don't even have a tripod.

Are you willing to be part of a group where we watch out for each other? Some people are tempted to go off on their own during a meetup. This is not acceptable because in the past we've wasted time searching for people. Photo of yourself required.

Yes. And please don't forget to notify group members, whose attention may be occupied to the east, when the group moves west!

Can you remain calm in a dark abandoned building? Are you fit enough to run with the group and walk along uneven surfaces if the terrain requires it? If not, you shouldn't join this group.


Are you willing to sign a liability release waiver? Not that we do risky meetups but because the areas require alertness and caution. Yes or No.


We basically field shoot and share photos. To join you must upload 2-5 of your recent photos to current Members' Photo Album. A visual introduction. You have 8 days to do it or your membership is cancelled. See Discussions tab in menu for directions.


A meetup consist of a field shoot and Show & Tell where we relax at an eatery to show a few of our recent photos. It is a chance to learn from each others efforts - hits and near misses - and get in the practice of talking "photography". Comment?

Yes, I welcome the feedback.

What Mary B. is saying about this Meetup Group

So far (one meetup), so good! I'm a novice, but did not feel (too) inferior to the greatly superior photographers in the group.
