What we're about

This meetup group is for the photography enthusiast; young and old, Beginner, intermediate and emerging professional, film or digital. Our group is not a photography club in the traditional sense, but more of a group for people here in the Miami-Dade area who are interested in getting together to meet, learn, have fun, bring their photography to the next level and share their enjoyment of photography.

a. Meetups for anyone that wants to be in the studio or outdoors on location and also shooting nature and wildlife.
b. Photo-walks - practice shooting on location while enjoying the local sites and scenery.
