What we're about

Want to learn/improve your photography skills and see new places? Let us teach you new photography skills and help you explore new locations! Join the Get Out Collective on one of our workshops.

We established the Get Out Collective in an effort to share our passion, knowledge, and love of photography with those looking to meet like-minded people and expand their creative skills.

We - Marco, Ricardo, and Steven - met at a photography workshop in Joshua Tree, California. We attended because it was marketed as a learning expedition. What materialized that day was nothing less than a disappointment.

Over the last few years, we've traveled to countless remote locations across California together. We began to look back on what brought us together, and realized that we could do for others, what that first workshop failed to do for us. That is: provide friendly, organized, and educational workshops at a reasonable price.

We hope you'll join us on our next adventure.

By requesting membership in this group you, people you might bring or your family assume full responsibility for yourself and your actions and agree not to file any civil actions against the group, the organizers or its members.
