Join us for some terrific Bay Area Photography. Have a great time shooting in and around the Bay Area and beyond. If you are just starting out in photography or have been in it for a while you will fit in just fine shooting with us in the North Bay, South Bay, East Bay, SF Bay and exploring interesting places beyond the bay area as well.

Our group has members of all levels, all experience, and all photographic mediums. So shoot digital or film, color or black and white; it’s all good here. Seasoned professionals to beginners will have fun in this nice friendly group socializing and discussing techniques and what works for them. Our goal is to have a good time enjoying our hobby, meeting new photography people, going to places near and far and learning some new tips and techniques along the way.

We will schedule photo trips to shoot nature, landscape, fine art, families, themes, and other genres using our local areas, cities, beaches, open spaces, industrial sites, some field trips and more. Many events will be free; just show up and shoot, while others will have small fees like parking and entrance fees. Other events will have event fees to cover the costs of renting a venue, hiring a guide, getting permits etc. Event details will be in the descriptions. If you want to suggest an event there is a link on the main page that you may make a suggestion. We will try to accommodate your ideas!

Come join us and get out there and enjoy your passion for photography. We are open to all forms of still photography, models may join if interested in modeling time for images, makeup artists looking to gain experience, costumers looking to participate and show their talent, anyone who wants to be involved and gain some experience working with others in the field of photography.
