Introduce yourself to the group

Hi - I'm Melissa...I live in Oakland, was born in Vallejo, and raised in Sonoma County. I recently left the corporate world and have dedicated myself to full -time photo exploration and learning. I'm married, we have two lazy cats, and we love to take road trips in our convertible.

What activities are you interested in? For example, photo hikes, critiques, learning photography techniques, meeting like-minded people etc.

Pretty much all of the above. Photo hike? Yes please. Learn photography techniques? Count me in. Meet like-minded people? okay, not so much...ha! just joking. Like-minded people are great, but I'd be just as happy to meet non-like-minded people as sometimes they provide the best inspiration. Also count me in for festivals, street parades, civic unrest, walks in the park, trips to the beach, etc.

Which city in the Bay Area do you live in?


What type of camera do you have (For example, Canon T4i, Pentax K-5...)

Canon 7D, Canon 6D

Are you willing to pay a one-time fee of $5 within the first month of your membership?



Passionate student, looking to develop vision and mastery of landscape photography.
