What we're about

We created this club for local (Alexandria/Arlington) portrait photographers and photo enthusiasts. This is a warm and welcoming space for us to be able to connect, support each other and learn and grow creatively.

We host at least one QUALITY event each month - from arranging photoshoots, educational demos and of course, photowalks in various local neighborhoods - including The District. There is also a social/community component to this club.

Whether you are a passionate hobbyist or a seasoned pro, this club is a great way to:

• Connect with people who have similar interests but perhaps use varying gear, methods and styles.

• Explore creative arenas

• (Re)Ignite your passions within a specific genre

These QUALITY events will either be in Alexandria, Arlington or DC. Each meeting will have a specific topic, which could range from themed portrait shoots, lighting, off-camera flash, posing, social media marketing tips and indeed, the business of photography.

At least once a quarter, we'll organize a photoshoot around a theme, at an interesting spot in the Northern Virginia or DC area.

To participate, you should ideally have a basic understanding of photography and your digital camera and a passion for learning and exploring both artistically and technically.
