Because photographers like to shoot! Join us for fun filled guided photography trips.

I decided to start this group in 2013 because as a photographer its hard to travel with people who are not photographers.  its also not wise to travel alone...with all that equipment.  So I thought it would be a great idea to form a group where we can share places, events, tips, etc and travel together.

Currently the fees are structured to cover charges and other fees. they do not include transportation, accommodations, food etc.  In most instances the fee cover the addition of the guides and the instructor, plus other applicable fees where stated including the cost to host the meet up (meet up. com charges).
