What we're about
Virginia Beach Photo Fanatics and Friends is an amazing way to connect to your love of photography no matter what side of the camera you are on. It doesn't matter what you are shooting with. It is about connecting to the community, learning, growing, socializing. The goal is to have a good time enjoying your hobby and/ or career, meet new people who share the love of photography, go to places near and far, further ignite and explore the creative spark within ourselves and learn some new tips and techniques along the way.
There will be scheduled photo trips to shoot nature, landscape, people, places, and more using our local areas, cities, and everything in between. Some events may have fees to cover the cost of that particular event. Event details will always be in the descriptions as to where a fee may be payable if it applies.
After 3 years there will be a 10.00 annual fee per person. (children in the family are free).
Why? Meet up costs money (20.00 per month) spaces and venues cost money (25-300.00 each) instructors cost money, and more. YES there will be a budget spreadsheet for accounting purposes and a leadership team so they can have oversight. The more I have the more I can do.
The All access pass grants you free entry to the Facebook Group, and all social media points. You will get access to all the events and you can pick and choose what to go to. You get a full networking unit to reach out and do shoots with other photographers and more. You will get access to all social events, many classes, and our 3 huge events per year: the annual BBQ in the summer, the Ugly Sweater Christmas party, and our annual anniversary party.
You can join and fees are due within 30 days. Once you join you can see the events and look at our past events to see what our group is about. Use the links and pay pal is free if you have it. Use friends and family. If not the link will allow you to use a credit card for a small fee.
