Member since:

October 3, 2008



I am passionate about photography. I have been one of the many organizers now for 5 years and continue to learn and grow through sharing with others.

Are you a Professional, Semi-Pro, Amateur, or Beginning photographer?


What are you looking to contribute and or learn from the group?

I am looking to share my style and technical skills both behind the lens and in the digital darkroom. I am looking to help lead the group in the right direction and I believe we are headed there.

How many years shooting (All mediums - film, and digital)?

Eight years in film and digital, only the last three seriously on the technical side.

What is your favorite type of shooting (Landscapes, Macro, People, Events, Family...etc)?

If it is presented to me, I will shoot it from seventeen different angles.

What Steven S is saying about this Meetup Group

This is an enthusiastic group of photographers ranging in skill from Pro-Level to Beginner. Everyone has something to learn about photography and everyone in this group has something to share.

    I tried to RSVP to 2 events & post a photo but was unable to do so. I realized my photo had a question mark & my response to a previous comment said I was a "former member". I don't seem to be a member anymore & I'm not sure why, my account says I have not made any payments but I paid my dues at the swap meet to a guy on the SW corner of the room. I will be at the SRC on Sat Sept 7th to go to Talking Waters. If I'm not added back in the group by then, I'll discuss it with you on the 7th.

    I want to go to your slide show class on Nov. 16th I think it is. I am unable for some reason to use paypay. Can I pay you tonight when I see you at the critique class?

    Thank you so much for the great evening Steve. I really enjoyed myself and everyone was great. You helped me a lot and I look forward to Wednesday night. It was so relaxing for me tonight and I haven't even looked at the pictures I took but will and then I will try to post some if I can figure that out.

    Hi Steven, I'm only going to be able to make it for a short time at the wetlands outing tomorrow since I have another meeting to go to.
    I would like to invite you to meet me for breakfast (my treat) at Dennys restaurant (close to Mission & Hawthorne) at 6:45 prior to the outing. It is close to the wetlands and I have a new photographic opportunity I would like to present to you.
    If you can make it please respond to [masked].

    Steve, I finally was able to play with some HDR. I posted 3 photos on the class page. Let me know what you think.

    Hi Steven, I know the door is closed on suggestions but I have one I think most everybody would like: Photoshop plug-ins. Our members could demonstrate
    on the projector things like Nik suite, alien skin, Topaz, etc. This could save members a great deal of money by seeing them before buying them or improving their skills if they already have them.

    Hi Steven, I had to change my rsvp to no for the monthly meeting. I'd signed up for mayo and a side dish, so wanted to let you know I wasn't going to be bringing those.
