This MeetUp event is for photographers and pet-lovers looking to explore the art of animal and wildlife photography! Join us at the corner of Joy St. and Beacon St. in the Boston Commons once-a-month at 12:30 pm for a two-hour photography lesson with a professional instructor! Bring along your DSLR camera and of course, bring your pet if you can!! Your instructor will teach you how to capture those oh-so-adorable moments with your pet at home and also how to catch a perfect fleeting moment of a bird in flight. You will visit the Boston Common's Frog Pond to practice your new techniques on the mama ducks and their flocks of baby chicks and also the dogs (and yes, sometimes cats on leashes too!) that your fellow Meetup members bring along. Spend a beautiful afternoon in the park with your favorite furry friend and your camera learning how to master the manual settings on your DSLR and capturing amazing photos of your pet in action and at rest! The Boston Common is a great place to find dogs of all shapes and sizes as well as a variety of wildlife...you'd be surprised how many ducks, birds, squirrels and little city dwellers can be found there!! We know that your pet might never sit still and that finding a beautiful blue jay in your yard is a rare moment, so your instructor will teach you how to snap a quick photo with perfection to ensure that these amazing animal photo opportunities are never missed. You can expect to learn a lot, walk away with great photos, have a ton of fun and meet some fellow Bostonians who love photography and animals!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Help! I can't find my instructor/don't know where we're meeting?
After you sign up for one of our Meetups, you should shortly receive an email from Remember Forever Photography with directions to your meeting spot and contact information for your instructor for the day. If you don't receive an email from us, give our business office a call at 646.736.3231 and we'll be happy to put you in touch with your instructor or send you another copy of your confirmation email. Most of our instructors also have the Meetup.com app, so you can send them a direct message as well if you need to.
2. Can I just pay you in cash when I get to class?
Unfortunately, we can't accept cash for tax purposes. Sorry! Most of our instructors can process credit cards on site, but we really appreciate it if you sign up through Meetup first so we get an accurate headcount on who's coming to class.
3. What do I do if it's raining/snowing/hurricaning on the day of my Meetup?
We'll notify everyone by email as soon as possible if we feel we need to cancel a Meetup due to the weather. If we do need to cancel, we'll automatically reschedule you to the next available Meetup or any Meetup of your choice with equal or lower value. Check out each individual Meetup for for more info on our refund policy.
4. Why do you need at least three students enrolled to run a Meetup? And what happens if we don't get enough students signed up.
Having at least three students per Meetup ensures that we cover the cost of liability insurance for our workshops and also ensures we can pay our awesome staff photographers a fair wage.
If we don't have enough students to run a Meetup, we'll notify you as soon as possible and get you signed up for the next available Meetup, or any other Meetup of your choice with equal or lower value.
5. I don't see any other students signed up. Does this mean my Meetup is canceled?
Maybe not! We get students signing up for our courses from several sources in addition to our Meetup group. Unless we notify you otherwise, we more than likely have enough students enrolled to run as scheduled.
