Started by professional headshot, portrait and real estate photographer John Glover in 2016, this group began by offering free beginning level instruction on basic camera operation and has evolved to offer deeper and broader meetups and training. Educational meetups and workshops covering topics like how to start or run a photography business, studio and portrait lighting techniques, and headshots are regularly offered along with some of the original basic courses intended to get you started if you're brand new to photography. There are still a number of free or inexpensive opportunities in this meetup group to learn photography and network with others while more advanced courses are also being developed and will be offered over time for a nominal fee.
One of the primary goals that John established at the onset of this group was to quickly connect with and assist the local photography community through well thought out instruction that should be useful to serious hobbyists and professionals alike.
Although it shouldn't be overwhelming to anyone, this group offers deeper technical advice and instruction than most other casual meetups. If you're looking for something more in depth and technical than a photo walk, then check us out!
Guest speakers and instructors with plenty of diverse real-world experience in photography will be included at times as well.
