If you are looking to be a part of a group of photographers in the Boone, West Jefferson and Wilkesboro area that go on monthly shoots, have beginner classes and critique images together come check us out! We are a “Family Friendly” group with teens. No nudity, overt provocative, or violent images allowed. Ask yourself if it’s acceptable for the general public. ie. viewed by children.
Organizer: Hi, my name is Margaret Bullock and I am about to move to the area. I was on the board and Vice President of a large photography group in the Northern Virginia area so have some experience with photography clubs. I’ve also been shooting for close to 30 years. I'm using ViewBug - Check out my profile: HeartandHomePhotography http://www.viewbug.com/member/HeartandHomePhotography?m=my_profile
Co-Organizer: Hi my name is Jim Hunsberher. I did business head shots for a small production studio in Port Richey Fl, I was manager of the video production studio at that studio. I am self taught photographer, and videographer and do it mostly as a hobby but am looking to make it my full time career
To be in this group you will need a camera. DSLR is recommended for classes but iphoneographers are welcome on shoots and critiques. We may even do some classes just for iPhone. Editing software like Lightroom and Photoshop is also recommended (but not required) as we will be doing basic editing classes in the winter months.
Note: (Margaret here) I wanted to ask for your patience over the next couple of months. We go to closing on our home in Boone on the September 21st. At that time a construction crew will be remodeling our home for the next three weeks. While they are doing this we will be working on the studio that is in a separate building from the house. So we will be moving into our home sometime the end of October.
The studio has a large wall with windows for natural light. In the evening we can use the studio lights to have some fun! We will be able to use it also as a meeting hall to host photography workshops, socials, and critiques. It’s difficult to find a place for these right now. It’s great to do these sorts of things more into the winter months anyway so thinking it will work out. Until then looking to play outside as much as possible.
Jim is willing to host Meetups out and about until I can become more active.
Looking forward to meeting you all at some point. We will be doing Meet-ups all around The Wilkesboro and Highland areas. Please let us know of good places that you would like to shoot.
There will be no membership fees until we are better established with a board. If you are interested in being a part or serving on a board please join!
