What we're about

Frederick Funtographers is for anyone who enjoys photography.

This group is:
• For anyone with an interest, enthusiasm, or passion for photography
• A place to get together in a fun, friendly, and non-intimidating environment
• For learning, sharing, socializing, growing and having fun as photographers
• For everyone regardless of equipment, experience, skill or knowledge level

The group is not:
• A club, organization or business with financial interests or motivations
• About charging “fees” to attend and participate in activities
• About promoting paid workshops, classes or model shoots
• Exclusive or elite
• Specific to certain types of photography, ideas or equipment
• A place for others to promote, solicit or pursue financial interests or business opportunities

Meetups:

Our meetups are in-person events intended to support and encourage participation among members. Although the meetup themes/topics/locations may vary, each meetup is a chance to shoot, learn, share, socialize and have fun.

All funtographers are encouraged to suggest meetup events for the group. If you''re going out somewhere to shoot and want some company, let us know and we can post it as a meetup. The more involvement and activity, the more fun for everyone! If you have a topic, activity, event or location you're interested in or want to learn more about, don't be shy, let us know.

Membership:

Our group is open to anyone with an interest, enthusiasm or passion for photography. To maintain membership, members simply need to abide by our simple rules and stay active on our meetup site. Members who are inactive on our meetup site for over a year are automatically removed.

The rules for the group are simple...

DO: be friendly, have fun, learn, share, teach, socialize, and become a better photographer

DON'T: be unfriendly, discriminating, intimidating or belittling to others
(this will not be tolerated and will result in immediate removal from the group)
