Based in Chicago, the Chicagoland Digital Photography (CDP) Meetup Group is the world's largest private photography group. CDP's focus is on digital photography and helping members find ways to develop and share their passion for photography. Our goal is to help one another fine tune our photographic technique and discover new avenues in photography, while growing a global community of digital photographers of all skill levels.
