I started this group up since I'm a photography enthusiast and wanted to promote photography and photographers. I've been taking shots for over 25 years now.
This group is for those people who do not necessarily want to spend huge amounts of cash on going onto photography courses learning about photography but are keen to develop their passion on photography in a creative and fun way whilst being in a group. Also hoping that you'll make new friends along the way whom also enjoy photography and maybe share tips, tricks and ideas between us.
The idea is simple ... You simply bring yourself (and friends if you want to), your camera and have some fun! Your camera can be a mobile phone camera, a compact or a full blown DSLR. You can be a complete amateur or a pro. Overall, there are no restrictions to the group.
Just to let everybody know right now, to keep costs down for everybody, there wont be any hiring of any studios, models, props or any other fancy equipment which will cost money!
Locations - likely to be around London. Themed event each meet up. After the event you have to choose one or two photos which you have taken, show it to the group and explain why you like it or don't like it, or maybe what you would of done different? You don't necessarily have to show the best photo! It's about learning from what you have done and improving your skills. Depending on numbers please try and keep this brief as possible i.e. if 50 people turn up to an event and we all take 1 min talking it's going to have 50 mins to get through everybody! The emphasis is on fun with photography!
We'll quite possibly end up with a few drinks after an event!
