  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     Anyone who has more than a casual interest in photography, wants to improve, and wants to learn about upcoming local photo events would enjoy these sessions. Photography is like most other hobbies and sports. You improve with practice. FCCP is a great place to improve. There is some type of group sponsored activity at least four days a week. It forces me to get off my duff and out taking pictures.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     When I look at my photos from when I joined FCCP in early 2012 and today, I am thrilled and amazed at the improvement and I can thank FCCP, Jeff and other unselfish members for sharing their knowledge and experience with the members. I've learned not only the technical side of using my camera, but also the creative side of seeing an interesting image. Beyond that, through classes, webinars and study groups, I'm learning the joys of post processing to make the image the best it can be. Thank you to FCCP and all involved for challenging me and enriching my life. The friendships I've made are the icing on a fantastic cake.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     The group was very friendly and easy to find. It was great to get out and take pictures, especially with the water. I was disappointed I couldn't use my professional camera but instead was using my little digital and iPhone, which wasn't a problem to anyone. The group leader even offered to help me find a way to get my professional one up and running! I really appreciated that Jeff was willing to answer any questions, and is knowledgeable about various photography shots and cameras.

    Amber U. on Oct 30, 2013.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     If FCCP is general is anything like the 1st MeetUp I attended, I wouldn't have any problem giving this a huge thumb's-up for anyone interested in taking their photography to the next level. Jeff did an excellent job working with the entire group. He was masterful at breaking down complex topics, so his Meetup members can all grasp the concepts. As a fellow Meetup organizer, I think it was really cool to experience another example of an excellent meetup experience.

Get off your sofa and start shooting. There are classes and hundreds of Meetups available to meet your personal photography goals.

     Jeff is a remarkable instructor and has tireless energy. He has amassed a great group of active photographers, pro, intermediate, and beginners who are active in the many photo walks offered. Definitely the most active Photography Meetup Group in the Tampa Bay area.

    Troy W. on Sep 24, 2012.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     Wow! I thought I had a pretty good grasp of LR. I didn't know nuthin'! Jeff made this so interesting and easy to learn. I had a few "aha" moments as well as getting many tips and tricks on how to use this powerful program. I went home and immediately opened LR and began applying what I learned and saw an immediate difference in my photos that I'd already processed! Lots of improvement in color, tone, and sharpness. I finally know how to get rid of chromatic aberration. (Those purple fringes around things in your photos.) Such a simple fix and I didn't even know it existed. Many thanks to Jeff, the Menaul Gallery, Scott (for the tour), Joe's Deli (for a great lunch next door), and the other attendees for making this a fun, educational and instructive day. Money well spent! 

    Dave C. on Sep 23, 2012.

     if you enjoy photography you can express your personal vision by creating the picture or pictures that you enjoy learn not to accept the ordinary, but strive for self satisfaction

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     Just wish I had more free time to participate and learn. Seeing the images of others made me realize that my point and shoot camera has made me LAZY and less creative. "If you don't use it, you lose it."

    Christine on Jul 26, 2012.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     From what I experienced in my first class / meeting, I went to the Bootcamp with a open mind to further my goals in photography. I came away with a positive experience and a opinion that I would really enjoy some of the other meet ups. For me this was important as I drove all the way from Sarasota to attend this meeting / class and would most likely attend other classes or meetings when they fit my schedule. The other members or students that attended this class were fun and offered different questions and thoughts that Jeff was able to answer and explain, and at the same time use those conversations to help teach the others attending ways to help further there knowledge. If many of the other meet-ups or classes are like this one then I will most likely look forward to meeting some of the other members in other meet-ups. It seems that one could learn a little from many of the other members and use those meetings to learn and teach themselves allot.

     I am so glad that I didn't give up! I went to two other photography classes in town with other groups and I completely resonated with this class and instructor! Rather than walking away more confused...I walked away with understanding/comprehension/hope. I am now convinced I will master my camera and stop using the PHD button! (Press here dummy!) HA HA

     I learned of FCCP only recently. From what I can see it offers such a wide variety of photo and training opportunities, that I can continue to participate and learn at my own convenience.

     Awesome! This is a great forum...I'm a newbie and I felt like I was right at home. Everyone was friendly and the people with more photography experience didn't look down on those of us who didn't. I appreciate everyone's willingness to share experiences and knowledge. I met and talked to Jeff for the first time during this workshop and I have to say he is one of the most charismatic people I've ever met. If you haven't talked to him yet...you should.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     It's always a fun group. There is as deep a knowledge base in the group as there is diversity in skill level and equipment. Great resource for beginners to grow and for old hands to share experiences and what they've learned over the years.

    Sean on May 24, 2010.

  • Florida Center for Creative Photography

     I'd like to see more people take the opportunity to do something for themselves. Our lives are so busy that we forget about us! Photography is a great outlet and can be very relaxing and fun at the same time. And no, you don't need hundreds of dollars worth of equipment to do this. Your family camera is just fine. A simple point-n-shoot is all one needs. Your knowledge of photography will increase, you'll meet new people, and you will have lots of fun doing this. The group is open, therefore, one can come risk free to see how they like it. This group offers many, many opportunities to meet during the month. I see knew faces all of the time because of the availability offered for people to meet. Oh! one more thing, the organizer, Jeff Donald, has 30 years of experience in the field of photography,videography, and computers. He's traveled extensively and has lead many groups through exotic lands. Sounds exciting doesn't it?

     Jeff Donald is an excellent educator. He makes the participants feel at ease. He allows time for questions. Anyone that wants to learn what all the buttons on the camera are - sign-up you won't regret it.

     This is one of the most active meetup groups anywhere. We learn by doing, and for me, this group offers such a diversity and tenacity in 'doing' that one can't help but learn quickly. Young and old, the folks are great and willing to share their knowledge if you ask for tips. Jeff is an excellent instructor and dedicated to helping others. Whether you like landscape, portrait, fashion, architectural, abstract, whatever your photographic interest, this group will fulfill your desires.
