This group is for young adults interested in improving their photography skills. This group is casual and geared toward beginners (both hobbyists and aspiring professionals) who want to develop and share their photography skills in a non-judgmental, un-intimidating setting. For almost 5 years now, I have had other meetup group (Beginners Tennis for Young Adults) and I've made lasting friendships, given countless lessons, and have made many great memories. Tennis and photography are my two greatest passions and I feel like a group like this is a great fit for Houston.
I am not a professional photographer. I work as an Electrical Engineer but I do shoot Weddings, Engagements, and portrait sessions on the weekends. My goal for this group is to meet new people who share my excitement about the latest camera gear, photography techniques, have some fun suggestions for weekend photowalks, and who are enthusiastic about photography in general.
This group does share a similar name to my tennis group. While it's true that the group is geared toward young adults, there really is no age restriction. Anyone who wants to attend is welcome and encouraged to do so. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You don't need to have any expensive or fancy gear to join this group. While high end gear certainly has it's advantages, composition is what really matters. Even if you just shoot with a smartphone, please don't hesitate to join us. If you're passionate about photography, you can absolutely create stunning images from any camera. I look forward to meeting you.
