Hi Folks, hope you're
having a great Holiday Weekend so far. Lots of folks get busy with
shopping this week, including their Amazon orders (I've already started
my list!). The Holiday Season is the single biggest month for
HoustonPhotowalks budget coverage. We pay our yearly web site fees and it
helps us kick off the new year with funds.
So before you do your holiday shopping, CLICK the Amazon.com link
on this email or on our home page! I am forever grateful. Sometimes
its only a few cents, sometimes a few bucks. But in the end, every dime
helps! :) Clicking the Amazon.com and ThinkTankPhoto.com links are a free and easy way to contribute to the group's budget!
It takes funds to run a group like HoustonPhotowalks.com. But asking members to donate cash or pay dues for every-day expenses like web site fees, bottles of water, etc, makes me feel kinda creepy. So we provide a FREE and EASY way for members to donate money -- simply clicking a link before doing their regular shopping! So a HUGE thanks goes out to our members who click the Amazon.com and ThinkTankPhoto.com links on our home page before making purchases.
At least once a month at HoustonPhotowalks.com, we drum up some crazy idea for a place to photograph and practice our techniques. We're a fun bunch, no pressure, no stress. Come ready to learn from other photographers AND share what you know with others.
As often as possible, our meetings are in "Interesting and Unusual" locations that other photography groups might not to go (or prefere to avoid :).
Our group has 3 main principles that guide our way:
Fun and Safe (we want you to have a great time, and not die).
Honor the amateur photography clubs that came before us. Their enthusiastic interest in photography paved the way for the technology evolution that allows us to capture light today.
Education, of ourselves, each other and the community. We learn our best techniques from each other, and we teach the community that photographers aren't jerks, criminals or terrorists.
