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.
