We are a completely free, not-for-profit landscape photography meetup group!
We host meetups, workshops and other events such as group treks to national parks like Yosemite and Death Valley National Park.
Come network, shoot with and learn from your fellow SF-based landscape photographers and accelerate your understanding of the medium fast. We believe that the best photographer is the one having the most fun! : )
Because I've had many members inquire about this, I thought to just put it out to the entire group. What is this, you ask? It's a chance to travel and experience China where not many get to go. Is it the Great Wall? Panda's? Terra Cotta Warriors? Not exactly. It's even better ...
Did you know that China is home to over 50 ethnicities? These ancient cultures are quickly disappearing as the allure of modern city life promises a better, easier life (yeah, right). Immerse yourself in little known ancient Chinese cultures, witness awe-inspiring landscapes, engage in "conversation" sharing story, sample old world recipes from generations past; Keep these memories alive in your hearts and minds upon your return by capturing and documenting your adventure through your lens. Learn the art of capturing landscapes, natural light environmental portraiture and even trying your hand at street photography to boot!
For a look-see of what I'm talking about, I encourage you to see for yourself. Even if you think travel and photography aren't for you, I want to inspire you to consider combining the two ... how about traveling with a friend to share the experience with? I'd appreciate spreading the good vibes either way!
Upon my years living and visiting many regions throughout these endearing parts of China, I've always said this story needs to be told! For my fondness in teaching, I will help you tell this story, through your own heart and lens.
While you're there (on the website below), drop me a quick message letting me know what you think!
Here it is:
Thank you for this indulgence.
It's ON! Another photo junket to endearing parts of China to capture idyllic landscapes you've seen on the pages of NatGeo. We'll spend much of our time near bodies of water from the South China sea to auspicious rivers and centuries old rice terraces. We'll make use of natural light in the wee hours of the morning, position ourselves for awesome sunsets and while lighting is harsh, explore ancient village life of long forgotten ethnic chinese minority groups going about their daily routines.
This trip is open to anyone who has a curiosity for travel adventure to not-so well known corners of the world; in this case, mysterious China. I have lived and travelled throughout China for the past 8+ years scouting and capturing images that stir the creative intrepid sojourner in all of us!
For the best experience for everyone, I am limiting this to 10 adventurers.
Share it! Pack your bags ... Check it out for yourself!
