The Bend Photography Group began in 2008 as a focal point for local, aspiring photographers to come together to share, learn, network and explore their passion for photography. We are a group primarily for amateur photographers and/or serious hobbyists, but no one is excluded. One goal is to have a monthly critique of our photos, so that we can learn both the technical and artistic aspects of photography. The interesting photo shoots will still continue. We hope to foster learning through the shooting, sharing and discussion of our photos with each other.
