Places I would like to go with the group to take photographs...

I am open to any where with water, hills, birds and wildlife. It would be great if places were handicap accessible since I use a walker and scooter to get around outside.

My photographic style could be described as...

I see the whole picture.

I consider myself to be a beginner, intermediate, serious amateur, pro...

I would say I am a very serious amateur for the past 9 years but have had a camera in my hand since I was a young girl. I have been a photographer for church, family and sporting events. Now retired due to a medical disability and love to be outdoors taking photos.


I discovered photography was a great hobby for me after medically retiring 10 yrs ago. I started taking photos indoors but soon discovered I preferred outdoor subjects. I enjoy meeting new people who share the same passion for photography as myself.

What Cathy is saying about this Meetup Group

Great active group. Everyone is very nice and helpful to share their knowledge on how to take better photos.
