In consideration of right to participate in activities offered by Seattle Painting Hiking and Photography (SPHP) Meetup Group, I agree to RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY SPHP Meetup Group, its members and organizers from any and all liability.
Any other creative pursuits? (painting, drawing, sculpting, glasswork, etc.)
No answer yet
I love both of these activities and am interested in more opportunities to hike and meet new people!
NEW for 2015: The group is expanding to include painting and drawing to our creative pursuits. Every Sunday evening, please join us to paint or draw at ArtWorks in downtown Edmonds. ArtWorks is a large, lighted space complete with easels, tables, and seating. While the photography aspect of this group is usually focused on landscapes and nature, there is no painting/drawing focus - let your creativity run free.
Come meet other local photographers who also have a love of nature. Hikes may be easy or strenuous, but will be at a photographer's pace to allow time to compose those great shots along the trail. Once we reach our destination we usually stay on location in order to make the most of golden light and sunset, hiking back under cover of dark with headlamps.
Landscape and nature photography is the focus of this group. Hiking is simply the enjoyable means of getting to those great locations. All range of photographers are welcome, whether you join us with a fancy camera and tons of skill or if you are just learning with a point and shoot. We hike to great locations and there are always people on the hike willing to share tips with those wishing to improve their photography.
For everyone's safety and enjoyment, please sign up for a hike only if you are bringing a camera, are physically able to complete the hike and will come prepared with proper hiking equipment. **
