What we're about

Meet other local Digital Photographers to talk about ANYTHING related to photography!

We meet monthly and at the meetings we decide on a theme and discuss photo shooting opportunities for the month. We show our themed photos from the last month and have a short class/discussion about some photographic technique or process.

**Would you like your photograph featured? Attend the monthly meeting and share a picture for that month's theme! At the meetings we will be voting for the winning photograph to be featured as the GDP group picture for the following month! **

Members range in experience from amateurs to professionals and cameras range from point and shoot to professional DSLRs. But the one constant is we are a fun, sharing group of people who like photography!

So, come join us!

Please! Do not join this group just to join a group. We want participation. Even if you cannot attend the monthly meetings or the photo shoots. You CAN read what the monthly theme is on the group page and participate and post your photographs based on the theme.

Members who have not attended nor checked out the group's page on Meetup.com for 10 months or longer are automatically removed from the member list. You can and may re-join at anytime.
