What we're about

This group is for all South Florida digital photographers who want to go out and take photos of interesting public places and do not want to do it alone… in addition an expert photography coach will lead and individually coach participants in the art / science of photography.

There will be a meeting every 2-3 weeks at one of the many interesting South Florida photo-op locations to expand the participants’ digital photography knowledge, and capture great images. These workshops will stress practical (on the spot “photo think”) to get the best digital image exposure as baseline and from there test variations of the mechanical (camera) and artistic (composition) aspects of Photography to create a more interesting and appealing digital image.

The coach for these photography workshops is a graduate from the New York Institute of Photography and has been involved in photography for over 30 years, as a hobby and for business. He retired from Broward County as a high school teacher and taught at Broward Community School Digital Photography / Post Production classes, and field photography workshops for over 10 years.
