We encourage our members to be actively involved in this group. Whether you can offer tips and techniques, or you are just learning how to use your brand new camera, we want to welcome you to this group. We encourage you to share your ideas, suggest possible future shoots, and express your creativity.  Members of this group should be thirsty for photographic knowledge and have a desire to practice and apply the tips and techniques you have learned.

Let's have some fun! This group is for active photographers! Learning and sharing is a key part to this group as well as just gathering to enjoy photography.

This group is for people who love photography. We welcome all experience levels, digital or film, point and shoot or SLR. While most members have SLR cameras, our P&S users will love to pick up some tips, enjoy photographic trips, and photo excursions as well.

We offer a variety of meetups, photo expeditions, exhibits, demonstrations, and educational & training workshops for a variety of experience levels and areas of photography and photo editing.  There is no annual meetup fee however, meetups generally range from $1 to $5 pp to cover meetup dues and any materials needed for such meetups.  We hold one monthly meetup each month to discuss our group, upcoming meetups, show & tell, photo critiquing, suggestions for future meetups, photo themes, Q&A session, and try to offer a mini demonstration or training session when possible.  Workshops are offered in all areas of photography such as camera functions, flash and speedlights, studio work & studio lights, photo editing.....and more! Workshop prices vary, however we offer highly discounted and very affordable rates.

Come in, have fun, share your photos.....and enjoy!
