What we're about

The group is in 'sleep mode' through covid. If you have ideas for online events, please contact the organizers and let's make it happen!

Welcome to The Light Chasers photography meetup. If you love all things photography, then join us and expand your photographic horizons as we embark on many adventures photographing the urban environment and natural landscape in and around Los Angeles and the Long Beach area. We will also hit the road from time to time to explore the desert areas and the Sierras!

Whether you are just starting out in photography and looking to learn as much as you can or are an experienced pro, come hang out with us and share your passion of photography as we explore new places both near and far.

In addition to our events, we will hold workshops on: Lighting, night photography, light painting, how to use filters, Photoshop techniques, Infrared Photography, and learning what all those settings on your camera are for, portraits and much more.
