What we're about

If you are passionate about photography, enjoy meeting new folks, and prefer learning new techniques in the field ... then we are the Meetup for you!

Road Runner Photography Tours and Studio 151 Photography are joining forces to provide our Meetup members with awesome photography opportunities! 
Samantha and Jason, from Studio 151 Photography, will keep you busy in the tradition you have come to love and trust! These two love all things photography and are gifted portrait photographers, so you will see more options to explore portraiture, technical classes, and events with models and cosplay if learning new things interests you!

Our Meetups are for photographers of all skill levels and are looking to experience new places, build friendships, find photo-companions, and develop technique.

The Mid-Atlantic region is rich with photo opportunities and we would like to share our love of photography with people who want to get out and shoot. We will be scheduling a number of half and full day events in the Virginia, DC and Maryland area. Join RRPT/S151 Meetup to receive information on our upcoming Meetups!

Road Runner Photography Tours also offers guided photography adventures for intermediate to advanced level photographers who wish to spend time in the field learning rather than in a classroom. Although our tours are geared to individuals who are comfortable using their camera gear, we by no means are excluding beginners!

We are happy to assist you and help you learn new techniques for capturing amazing images… let’s just focus on being in the field when doing it!! We created Road Runner Photography Tours to provide an alternative for photographers that prefer to focus on fieldwork. We believe that learning through practice, with camera in hand is the best way to develop skills.
