What we're about

Welcome to the Brisbane Photographic. We are a community of photography enthusiasts and professionals based in and around Brisbane.

The heart of Brisbane Photographic is our Instagram page and our Facebook Group where you can share your images that showcase Brisbane city and lifestyle. If you've not joined our Facebook group yet, head over to the link below and see what it's all about! In addition to our online presence, we run events organised via this Meetup page. These range from large photo-walks where we give you fresh perspectives of known and unknown photographic locations in Brisbane, to small in-person group workshops where commercial photographers share insights on professional photography techniques and styles.

Above all, these meetups are a chance to bring the Brisbane photographic community together, to meet friends, old and new, and of course to get out shooting in a fun, creative, and supportive environment.

SO, WHO SHOULD JOIN?

Photographers no matter how experienced can join. If you got a new camera or phone recently or you are a seasoned pro with years behind the lens, this group is for you. The vision is to bring the Brisbane Photographers community together. You don't have to know the camera world jargon, you don't have to know what an F-Stop is, but you might learn about that when we get together. If you are passionate about clicking photographs, we would love to have you in our group!

WHAT DOES IT COST?

There is no cost to join our group, its FREE. However to cover meetup.com subscription charges, administration, marketing and advertising costs we may charge a fee to attend some of our events/workshops.
