What we're about

Founded by Eric Leuthardt in June 2014, the New York chapter of the Eric Leuthardt Photography Club was started with the primary focus on providing a forum for like-minded photographers to gather and learn from each other. The club includes a wide range of events such as location shoots, photography workshops, instructional classes (such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Strobism, as well as basic camera operations), and even social gatherings.

The main goal of all our events is for you to learn and improve your skills, network with other photographers and models, and leave with images that you will be proud to add to your portfolio.

Weekly Photo Project - Landscape: Get High

Link visible for attendees

Every week we will have a different prompt for our weekly photo project. This week’s theme is Landscape: Get High.

Each week beginning early Monday morning, you can begin uploading your photos to our meetup album for the week’s theme. The group won’t actually meet for this event, it’s an individual online challenge for each of you to get your creative juices flowing, share photos in the group, comment and critique each other’s shots, and above all have fun.

Albums will remain open, so you can upload photos any time after that Monday morning start time but you’ll get the most feedback during the initial week the theme is posted. You also don’t have to restrict yourself to photos taken during that week for the theme, they can be from past shoots you have done or the weekly prompt can be used to motivate you to shoot something new.

We also have a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ericleuthardtphotography.club/) that you are encouraged to share your photos in.
