Hello everyone! First off, allow me to apologize for the lack of communication and updates in the past few weeks. A little vacation for everyone from my emails and meetups was well deserved and well, since summer always brings numerous plans for everyone, I thought it would be best to pick up on the meetups in August.
I have many ideas for us to explore and plenty of new faces have joined which will make for some great outings. I will be sure to plan events using your own ideas and hopefully, I will try to make the group incorporate more 'optional' plans for each meetup like drinks, food and non-photography events. Some of the later outings had a lot of this and it was great fun.
Welcome to all our newest members, hello again to everyone and make sure to check your inbox in the following days since I be posting the outing ideas for August.
all the best, have a great weekend everyone and hope to see you all soon! Gus
NYC Photo Outings is a great way to explore the five boroughs of New York City - and beyond - through your viewfinder among other photographers who share your passion. We can all take an image of the very same place or thing, but let's make it a challenge to put our own perspective or spin on what we are shooting instead of stepping into the same shoes of the person before us and pressing the shutter button!
An average outing will consist of a 2-2.5 hour photo walk with a fun challenge/contest (and one prize to one lucky participant per walk), directly followed by an optional meeting in a cafe or pub to share images over a few appetizers (at my expense) and optional drinks (at yours).
As I take on the role of your new Photo Outing Guide in April 2016, I'm gearing up with some ideas and challenges to lead us off and on our way to great images before Summer arrives.
If you're looking for a fun photography group to shoot with, learn from and share among, join us!
** PLEASE NOTE: Due to the time and cost of maintaining the group, post-walk meeting costs and a REAL prize awarded after each walk; please expect to pay approximately $10 per outing to contribute to time and costs involved. Thank you.**
