What we're about
Hey Fellow Photographers! Do you often think of a great photoshoot location but either don't want to go solo for various reasons, and/or want a second set of eyes to discuss vantage point, technique, etc? Have you made plans to go shoot but later abandoned plans because you got too comfortable? Well charge your batteries and break out your list as this is your group!
This group is for anyone that wants to get out and shoot but would like company - whether you schedule an event months in advance, or last minute since you are going anyways. It is not run by the organizer, but by the members.
This group is for the Photographer that is:
> Beginner to advanced, with any kind of camera
> Will keep a commitment when you post for a (or several) PhotoBud(s) to join
> Wants to enhance their skills, and maximize available time for photography
> Break out of your comfort zones
> Safety in numbers
> Motivation and inspiration to just go shoot and not stay on the couch
> A resource to share and expand skills
> Exposure to a broad range of styles
Cost: $6.00 annually. (That's it!, Just about the cost of one fancy coffee drink!) All organizers pay a fee to organize their Meetup groups. As a member, your fee offsets Meetup's subscription fee. Annual membership fee is non refundable if you leave the group at any time. There is a two week trial period where you can join any event scheduled, but can not organize an event.
