Meet other local photographers to learn from each other and take beautiful pictures together! Our goal is to organize monthly low-cost meetings with various topics. We can do photoshoots in various locations, or have demonstrations of shooting and computer techniques.

Amateurs and professionals are welcome to join! A willingness to share is more important than your level of expertise. Digital gear is pretty much a given, and a camera with manual controls is required for most of the planned shoots. We're not catering to beginning photographers - if you have never moved your camera away from the green square, you really should to do a short course in camera basics first. Any more experience than that - welcome!

The organizers definitely want to create a hands-on, learn-from-each-other setting. Future locations, subjects and timing are up for grabs. Please fill in the polls to have your say on this.

We will need models on a regular basis for our photoshoots. If you or someone you know are presentable as a model and would like some good quality pictures of yourself, let us know!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
