I hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL (and safe) holiday week! Note that this month's budget report does *NOT* include purchases made in December. We had a lot of very thoughtful folks click our Amazon link before shopping this year, and we really appreciate it! Look for the Christmas Shopping numbers next month.
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.
