Want to just get out and take photos? Want to learn more about your camera? Want to hang out with folks who actually understand your obsession with photography?

Did you come to the right place! We are an informal bunch of shutter-happy, fun-loving camera buffs.

What do we do?

We go places and take pictures of stuff. Any stuff. Lots of stuff. We also hang out and talk. We have been known to do both at the same time. Afterward, some people might drink Margaritas. It's been known to happen.

How far will I  go to have fun?

Mostly around Southern California: Orange County, Los Angeles, the Inland Empire and San Diego, but we might also range farther when the mood strikes us.

How often?

As often as possible. We try for at least once a week

I'm kind of new to the game. Is this the group for me?

We were there once and we love to share what we know (or think we know) with eager minds.

So what will all this cost me?

Very little. The group has a nominal annual dues of ten dollars. This goes to defray the costs of running the Meetup group, including the fees for Meetup itself. Leftover money will be spent on things like meeting space, if needed.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
