What we're about

Adventures in Photography (New England) is a Meetup Group for the adventurous and travel minded photographer. It provides photographic opportunities beyond the local geographic area with a broad range of interests ranging from grand landscapes to wildlife to exotic cities. Our objective is to take extraordinary images in extraordinary places in the world.

Adventures In Photography Meetup Group would like to share its passion for photography with other like-minded photo enthusiasts. Our Meetup Group will be hosting photography related events such as travel photography and other activities intended to help photographers of all levels come together and enjoy the many rewards that photography has to offer. Photographers of all skill levels who are looking to improve their skills, find new creative outlets for shooting, or just to connect with a friendly group of people to socialize and talk shop are all welcome to join.

While we do intend to offer field trips to the usual destinations that offer a rich variety of photo ops, we have no intention of stopping there. We will seek out unusual and extraordinary destinations that will offer a wide variety of photographic adventures. We intend to offer same day field trips, weekend field trips and longer photo adventures designed to accommodate wide and varied interests.

We are limited only by our imagination and your willingness to support our efforts. Everything connected with this Meetup Group will be conceived, planned and managed by photographers for photographers.

Online event

Infrared Artistry: Re-visualizing your World
Infrared is quickly gaining in popularity. The inherent surreal properties of B&W infrared are always surprising and take us into an invisible world. While mostly dealing with B&W infrared, we will also touch on the world of Faux color Infrared.
There will be ample image illustrations and processing demos.
Also illustrated through image examples are the effects of angle and quality of light, times of day, and weather conditions. Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation.

Yosemite in Winter With Its Infamous Firefall Natural Phenomenon

Yosemite National Park

Winter in Yosemite is a photographer’s playground with incredible sunrises and sunsets that typically complement the snow-covered valley. Our February schedule puts us in Yosemite during the one week a year where the sun hits Horsetail Falls at just the right angle to create a phenomenon called Firefall, where the fall glows orange and red, appearing to be on fire.

While Firefall is a main attraction, we'll be exploring many of the park’s iconic locations made famous by Ansel Adams. These include El Capitan, Half Dome and the many waterfalls with drops over 1,400 feet.

Your guide and host, Malcolm Kahn, knows Yosemite well and will put you at just the right place at just the right time. He is also an expert landscape photographer and patient teacher that will help you take and later develop memorable pictures. This is a small group outing with only 4 people, so you can be assured of personal treatment.

We will split our time between the two National Parks, visiting all of the iconic locations on our 9-day extravaganza.

During our drive, we'll stop at multiple spots along the way to shoot wildlife. A sunset shoot at one of the thermal areas followed by dinner will finish out the day.

September 19-22: We will generally shoot sunrises and sunsets at the iconic locations and spend the middle of the day shooting wildlife. This schedule will be flexible to account for changing weather and the interests of participants.

September 22-25: The group will drive back to the Grand Tetons after breakfast on the 22nd, shooting wildlife along the way. Our remaining time in the Tetons will focus on the beautiful mountains and surrounding landscapes. For those interested, we will also plan one- or two-night shoots.
