Formerly known as the "NYC Basic Photographers Meetup Group".
Our original founder, David S., started a new job along with two writing courses in January 2011 - which left him unable to continue running this meetup group. On behalf of all the organizers and members, thank you David, for creating this group. If it wasn’t for you, we probably all would have not made many new friends, as well as taken wonderful pictures.
As mentioned in our description, this group is for individuals at any level (beginner, intermediate, professional) with any kind of camera (film, point & shoot, DSLR). We try to select events that are free or low cost that everyone would enjoy. Occasionally we may have volunteers who are kind enough to take time out of their busy schedule and teach a photography lesson for free or low cost.
Meetup requires a semi-annual fee to organize and maintain the group's event page. If you would like to send a contribution to help keep NYC Photographers up and running, you can send $2.00 or more via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is NOT a requirement, but any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
We encourage everyone to post their photographs and show off their creativity. Do not feel intimidated or embarrassed. Again, we are all here to learn from one another. If you have any questions about photography, ask away.
Please feel free to post ideas, questions and comments on our message boards. Also, we would like everyone to keep their individual profiles updated.
We hope you all will enjoy being an active member of our group.
