I'm often asked if these meetings are for pros or advanced amateurs and they are not! Everyone is welcome, beginner, pro and all of us in between. Bring your questions and get real answers from certified teachers, working professionals and retired pros. Every Tuesday we show on a HUGE screen, tutorials on software, explain how to get discounts on gear from B & H Photos and discounted software as well.

This meetup has been going strong for over 7 years and averages 15 plus members at each meeting. Many of the regulars don't RSVP, so if you're joining us for the first time, please don't worry about the low RSVP count. We have a great time at this weekly meetup and I hope you'll join us for some fun, learning and great coffee and snacks

Bring prints, DVD's, or Thumb Drives and we'll review pictures and enjoy our favorite hot/cold beverage. Come early or come late for the many exciting images shown by members and guest. All are welcome.

Questions are welcome and if you have specific questions on your camera or lens, please bring them with you (and your owners manual). This is a free meeting that is offered on a weekly basis to all our members and their guests.

My Recommended Retailers

Where you buy your gear matters. You expect to get what you ordered and you want to pay a low price for it. The retailers I recommend below are the ones I trust for my own purchases.

B & H Photo and Video ( )

Adorama - The Photography People ( ) — Rent the Best Cameras & Lenses Available ( )

Bringing you the activities and this site is now a full time job (typically 60-80 hours per week). Thus, I depend on membership fees and on the commissions received from you using the links on this site to make any purchases. My family and I are grateful for your support! - Jeff
