This is a SOCIAL gathering to celebrate our Groups 600th MeetUp! We ROCK! So come buy your favorite Event Host a glass of beer or wine. We'll mix and mingle, tell meetup stories... Like Paul having me wear a frizzy blonde wig for a self portrait and more.
The Blue Star has great food and drink. I will buy the first bottle of wine, but everybody would be responsible for their individual tabs.
We are a fun and welcoming photography group that is social, educational, and we welcome members of all skill levels.
We are the oldest and most active MeetUp photography group in Colorado Springs. We have the most volunteer Event Leaders and Co-Organizers-- so we offer a very diverse selection of MeetUps. We met more than 230 times in 2013 and offered instruction, tutorials, info sharing, and social photography outings.
The 'mutual respect' that we ask for is that you should change your RSVP status 48 hrs in advance of an event. (You can be excused for 'no showing' but you must contact the Event Host before or within 48 hrs of the event.) But, IF you no show for an event you will be put out of the group. We need you to respect the time of the Host and your Fellow members- who might have attended if you hadn't wasted the spot.
We offer student scholarships to local Middle and High School students and have a yearly photo contest to showcase the remarkable talent we have here in the Springs.
