What we're about
Welcome to the Front Range Photography Meetup! We are glad you joined!
The Front Range Photography Meetup organizes photo events in and around Metro Denver. Our purpose is to create fun photo activities where members can meet new friends, while learning and sharing as we go.
You will be notified of these events by email, or if you choose not to receive email you can log onto the site to view the calendar of events. (Email settings can be found under "My Profile." Please adjust them to your taste)
Membership in the Front Range Photography Group is $12/annually. Some Meetup Events are free, others will have a charge. Either way it will be plainly noted when you RSVP/ If there is food or admittance fees involved you are responsible for them. Occasionally we travel greater distances to a special location. When that occurs, some folks prefer to organize a car pool and riders should be considerate of the driver and voluntarily contribute towards gas.
Fees are typically paid online, but if you prefer to pay by cash or check that can be arranged. Just email and let us know how you would like us to handle your dues.
Monthly Online Contest Free - Included with Membership Dues
Each month we host a Themed Contest. If you are a member in good standing (i.e. dues paid) the contest is free. At year end we award 1st and 2nd place images a monetary prize. We upload images to the Monthly Contest section under "Photos" then guest judges who are all career photographers, choose the winners and provide constructive criticism. Comments on images are welcome.
In order to grow and get better at our craft, we occasionally offer workshops. Fees will be associated with these workshops and plainly announced, so you will be aware when a fee is involved. Please also be aware of the workshop refund policy before reserving your spot.
A word about RSVP's
All Meetups require members to RSVP. Even though no fees are involved to attend, please be considerate of the Leaders. If you cannot attend, please make your RSVP reflect that.
The Meetup site has a discussion section where you are encouraged to participate. This board is for announcing events, workshops, contests, seeking and providing advice. It is NOT to be used for spamming the group, MLM, personal interest announcements. Those will be promptly deleted with no warning. Repeat offenders will be cheerfully stoned in the town square and/or banned from the network.
Volunteers are Encouraged!
If you have a suggestion or would like to lead a Meetup, please contact us! We welcome members who are interested in leading a Meetup. You can plan it, and we will post it. Our goal is to have as many events as possible and we can't do it all alone! Don't be bashful, speak up!
Other Photography Clubs Welcome!
Since our name is Front Range, we would like to invite other Photography Clubs in the area to join this Meetup. If you are a member of a Club that would like to increased visibility for your events, please contact us. Together we can create an awesome network with activities in all corners of our region.
We look forward to meeting you at a Meetup soon!
