The purpose of this meetup is to have a Blast! To that end, we're creating art, making photographs and telling stories -- hopefully the kind that won't get you in trouble, but leaves a lasting impression. The Meetup will offer many opportunities to not learn about improving upon your art. Technics and the basics of photography will also be visited in workshops as well as excursions. Art, and I believe art is photography, should be limitless. BUT, I do not promote art that supports violence or discrimination. Everyone is welcome to join, but know that it is really about a safe, respectful, creative space. If you are a member of this meetup and disturb the creative intention of the group, you will be invited to leave.
