What we're about


Photogami Paper Trail

This is a group for making new friends who like origami architecture, origami, photography & the outdoors...

Membership within Photogami Paper Trail will enable you to meet and socialize with other artists, origami designers and photographers.

This group's objective is to have fun while exploring and experiencing origami, photography and other types of art & mediums...

If you are thinking about or would like to get into some form of art; that’s all you need to get started…

All skill levels are welcome…

No photo experience is necessary.

If you can fold a piece of paper in half or make a print with your mobile phone or camera; then you are well on your way…

For our origami meetings, we will have gatherings & showings in real time and virtual as well as online forums.

Our photo sessions will be just about anything from ambrotype to tintype prints, so bring your mobile phones to large format view cameras & anything in between…

We will be photographing your origami; portraits, landscapes and almost everything else.

The portraits & landscapes filmed will be done on location and on a variety of actual trail excursions that range from beginner to advanced skill levels while going through a wide selection of landscapes.

The majority of our hikes are located within Southern California, but we also hike in other destinations as well.

The fine print:

It is a MANDATORY requirement for each member of this group to have a current, "recognizable photograph" of themselves uploaded as one of the pictures contained "within" their member profile for identification by organizers.


Events may be cancelled if there are fewer than 5 members signed up.

It is your responsibility to check events you are signed up for, and any of your notifications, for event updates & adjust your status accordingly.

You may be removed from the club if you have too many “not goings” or a “no show” in your attendance.

An RSVP of “maybe” is not acceptable and is considered bad form; as is signing up for an event then jumping onto a different one.

Should an event be limited in size, such as with a permit trail, you may be taking a space away from someone who really wants to go.

Also, it is not necessary to RSVP "Not Going" to an event if you are not going or have no intention of going. If you are already signed up for an event and your plans change, then changing your RSVP is understandable. We hope you will be able to make the next event.

Do not sign up for multiple same day trails or events just to assure yourself a spot until you decide to make a decision, at your leisure, on which event to attend.

If an event has limited openings, the individual concerned may be taking a spot away from someone who would really want to go.

This type of behaviour is considered bad form & is cause for removal from the club.

No Shows:

Event organizers put a lot of time and effort into arranging events.

If you decide not to go to an event, change your status accordingly.

Cancelling just prior to the start of an event or not showing up at all is cause for immediate removal from the club.


You must have a valid email so that an organizer may be able to contact you through the "meetup site".

You must be as least 18 years of age to join the club.


These are "at your own risk" events on lands accessible to the general public.

By joining any "Photogami Paper Trail" events: YOU are responsible for your conduct and safety and agree to free the event organizer, Photogami Paper Trail, any other organizers and agents associated with the club from any and all liability.
