What we're about

The DC Metro Nature & Landscape Photography would like to share its passion for photography with other like-minded photo enthusiasts. Our Meetup Group will be hosting photography related events such as field trips, workshop programs, speaker events, and other activities intended to help photographers of all levels come together and enjoy the many rewards that photography has to offer. Photographers of all skill levels who are looking to improve their skills, find new creative outlets for shooting, or just to connect with a friendly group of people to socialize and talk shop are all welcome to join.

Our intention is to concentrate on three areas of photographic interest. These areas are:

1. Field Trips: While we do intend to offer field trips to the usual destinations that offer a rich variety of photo ops, we have no intention of stopping there. We will seek out unusual and extraordinary destinations that will offer a wide variety of photographic adventures. We intend to offer same day field trips, weekend field trips and somewhat longer photo adventures designed to accommodate wide and varied interests.

2. Workshops: We intend to periodically offer a variety of presentations by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. Generally, these presentations will be scheduled on a weekday night and will run for about two hours.

3. Extended Workshops: We also intend to periodically offer half day and/or full day workshops presented by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. In general, these workshops will present subject matter that cannot be presented easily in an abbreviated two hour session. In many instances these workshop will utilize well known speakers sponsored by well known companies in the photographic community.

We are limited only by our imagination and your willingness to support our efforts.

Everything connected with this Meetup Group will be conceived, planned and managed by photographers for photographers.
