Combined San Diego Photography Collective Meetup at RIGHT LIGHT STUDIOS

NOTE: Our combined groups monthly meetup is now at The Right Light Studios in Mission Valley, just behind the Grantville Trolley Station.

There's lots of free parking and free WiFi!

You can bring your own food and there are kitchen facilities on location.


We continue our series of photo exchanges for those that are interested in participating. This is entirely up to you, but if you bring an image, you go home with someone else's image.

Details are below.


If you have items of a photography nature to SELL (such as cameras, lenses, tripods, etc.) you can bring them to the meeting also.

Please limit items to five (5) or fewer.


Rules for those bringing PRINTS to exchange:

• Bring a photographic print of your work to trade with your fellow members. The print should be something that could be displayed on a wall but does not have to be matted (but can be). Color or black and white, ANY subject matter and it can be an old image or new.

• Prints should be brought to this event in an appropriate sized envelope or wrapped up, so that the imagery cannot be seen beforehand. Each one will be numbered and then numbers will be picked from a hat by members until all prints have been distributed. When all the prints have been handed out, we will open them and view them one by one in their numbered order.

You can trade prints afterwards if you'd like.

PRINT SIZES SHOULD BE 8x10 or larger. Please ADD YOUR NAME to the back of the print.

NOTE: Obviously, if you do NOT bring a print, you will NOT receive one.

REMEMBER: You are encouraged to bring a print to this event but it is certainly NOT mandatory.


Arrive early to socialize with your fellow photographers and friends.


We will also be answering your photography questions and discussing technique and other photography related issues. Please bring your questions for us to discuss and hopefully answer.

We will be hosting guest speakers at future meetings too, so please check the calendar for upcoming events.


Bring your imagery to share, whether it be prints, snapshots, online or on digital devices! Got a new camera you're not sure how to use? Need advice on where to photograph or someone to partner up with for some outdoor photography? Just want to talk photography? This is the place!

Join us and meet with your fellow photography group members in a new, friendly and relaxed setting. Talk photography and share your photo work or view other member's imagery. This is also a good place to network for upcoming photo outings and events. Members are encouraged to share their expertise with other members. The more we all learn, the better pictures we take. If you'd like, you can bring something to the meeting that members can photograph to work on better photographic creativity. This event is FREE and friends are welcome to attend.

Member's photos are on the "photos" page for viewing. Browse our newly remodeled galleries! There are also more images located on the Northern Photo Group's website. Click the link to get there and go to "photos". Further links to individual member's website galleries are located in the message boards. You're also encouraged to make use of the message boards to buy/sell equipment, post notices for upcoming events you think might interest members, talk photography or related subject matter, etc. For more information, see [url=][/url] [img][/img] .

    Remember: You can bring outside food and there is a kitchen where you can heat things up. You're encouraged to bring desserts to share if you feel so inclined (cookies, etc). Please remember to bring your own drinks. At some point we hope to integrate a potluck into future ones.

    Twenty-five people waiting for one is just not right.

  • Dan C.

    We got off to a slow start waiting for others to arrive, but as usual, the photo exchange got things going. Loved the cake pops!

    For the next meeting here is your task if you choose to participate. Shoot something in motion. Suggestions would be to go to a place where people or vehicles are moving. That might be a skateboard park, a sporting event, traffic, trains, surfers, runners, dancers. You can capture the movement in midair or show the blur. No limitation on color or b/w. Let's just show each other what we see. Try to do something you have not done before but if you want to use an old image that's okay. One .jpg per person. We'll have a slide show without formal critiques but comments will be appreciated. I'm sure that my vision of these tasks will evolve over time but let's try to stretch ourselves. Email to Erin Hyde at [masked]

    Bring your prints to exchange as usual. We'll see how the time factor impacts all of this but let's try to start at 6:30 pm.

    Warm regards,

    I'm new to this kind of meetup and don't fully understand, is this like a group of people that meet up and actually take photos of the spot were we meet up and exchange tips? Like a photography club?

    October 3, 2013

    • Dan C.

      Not a photo shoot per se, this is a monthly event for the two combined photo groups where we introduce ourselves, have an optional photo exchange and sometimes, a presentation with a speaker or theme. We also offer the chance to sell or buy equipment and a few other things. Come see for yourself! - By the way, this is our first event at this new venue.

    I am new to meetup. What photo equipment do we bring? Is it just social?

    September 17, 2013

    • Dan C.

      Since this will be our first meetup at Right Light Studios, I would suggest bringing along your camera and if you'd like, some food and drink. At some point I hope to integrate a pot-luck into the evening at one of the upcoming ones. And remember the photo exchange. It's always a high point of the evening. Any photo 8x10 or larger will do. Instructions are on the event page.
