What we're about

This meetup group is for people who love the outdoors, photography and want to meet new people, looking for an easy hike, a moderate challenge, and everything in between including kayaking, camping, over night trips . We have a well diverse group of people here that are willing to share their knowledge when it comes to photography, hiking or just about anything we end up talking about. :) This group is friendly to beginners, slow hikers, advanced hikers, in between hikers, professional photographers, beginning photographers, or the photography hobbyist.

If you hike with us please wear appropriate hiking footwear. No sneakers. Feel free to ask us about how to dress and prepare for the hike you would like to attend. When you first join you will get a 30 day free trial. We then request a $4.00 yearly membership fee to cover the costs that meetup charges. Due to the cost that meetup requires please pay your membership fee online. It is in your the profile section.

Liability: You are responsible for you and are solely liable for injury that may be incurred while participating in this activity. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the necessary gear/equipment that is needed to participate in your selected hike and that you are selecting a hike that is within your ability level.

Hikes are rated using the ADK Guidelines:


Our policy is no hiker left behind. What does this mean? It means that no one leaves the parking lot at the end of the hike until all of our group is safely back in the parking lot. Group leaders want to make sure that everyone is safe.

Hikes designated as photo hikes travel at a slower pace to allow for photo opportunities. This may be frustrating to faster hikers so please consider your hiking goals prior to signing up for designated photo hikes.

If you RSVP for an event and you decide you can't make it please change your RSVP so others are not waiting!! Those who continuously sign up for hikes and are no shows may be removed from the next hike at the discretion of the group leaders. If you are no show for 3 hikes you will be removed from the group.

If you have any hiking suggestions please feel free to contact me or any of the other leaders / organizers.

Evening Photo Walk to Photograph Lupines

Needs a location

Saturday’s weather is looking iffy with rain in the evening. If it rains we will shoot on Sunday at the same time. I know this is a holiday weekend but the Lupines are out at the Albany Pine Bush. We will take the trail near the Visitor Center/Discovery Center.

If we are lucky we may get a sunset as well.

Bring photo gear and tripod for long exposure.

Date Changed to June 4-Keystone Arch Bridges Trail Photography Hike-

Perfect for a photography hike. Slower paced with stops for photos. Located near Chester Ma. (1hour and 19 minutes from Latham) this 5 mile round trip total is an out and back. Around 500 feet vertical ascent and it is more rolling. Starts on a gravel type road.The Keystone Arch Bridges can be found by heading down, unsurprisingly, the Keystone Arch Bridges Trail in Chester (also marked as the "KAB Trail). Visitors can see the bridges via a 2.5-mile gravel trail that starts just outside of Chester (it’s technically in Middlefield, Mass.) The trail is a moderate walk that features multiple bridges along the way. There is also a waterfall.

This is a beautiful and historic area. I think the Spring will be perfect!
Limited to 8. Raindate will be May 15.

Bring camera, tripod, snacks, insect repellant.

Dover Stone Church Photography Hike-slow pace

Needs a location

A fantastic place to photograph. It is not a church ---

This is a small-town preserve, which began in 2004 by offering a single short hike (about 1.2 miles round-trip from parking area). The scenic brook and cavern at the end of the trail make the Dover Stone Church — an extraordinary cave-like natural formation — a worthwhile destination. Inside the cavern is a 30-foot waterfall cascading into a pool of water that flows through and then out of the cavern entrance.

By 2015, additional parkland was acquired; three new trails were blazed and opened to the public.

We will photograph this beautiful area so bring a tripod, ND filter and your photography gear. Pack a lunch, water and snacks and bug repellent.
