What we’re about
Welcome to the Denver See Like a Photographer group!
<br>This group, which was originally started by Erik Holladay, has been transferred to Bryan Lopez and Dale Ralph effective October 2021.<br>
This group is all about photographers helping photographers. Everyone is welcome to join. There are many other groups, clubs and resources available that cover the basics. Therefore, the content of this group will be tailored more toward intermediate to advanced photographers. Events and subjects to be covered within this group will be determined by the members as this group belongs to the membership, and we want an open flow of information and ideas.
We are all artists and creators and see the world differently. Come with an open mind and the desire to learn. We welcome all types of photography. Activities include, but are not limited to monthly critique sessions, in-person meetup activities, classes and mentoring.</br>
<br>There are associated costs with running this Meetup group. One of our goals is to keep member costs to the minimum needed to cover hard costs. We are going to initially charge annual dues in the amount of $10 per year. We are also asking members, where possible, to contribute their expertise in one or more photo-related subjects once a year by:
Running an event
Leading a class
Providing tips, etc.
<br>Other than recovering Meetup costs, we expect all activities to be free for all members. We may occasionally hold an event at a location that charges admission. In this case, each member will be responsible for their own cost of admission.
This is a friendly and open place to improve your photography and post-processing skills while helping and encouraging others to improve their craft.

See you soon!

Upcoming events (4+)See all
- Monthly Interactive Photo CritiqueLink visible for attendees
Join us for our monthly critique session with Bryan Lopez and fellow photographers. These reviews are positive in nature and include friendly and helpful suggestions and comments as well as live application of suggested changes. The purpose of these sessions is to help us all improve our photography, and gives the photographer the opportunity to see what suggested changes would look like on their photo. The style and depth of the review are totally up to the submitting photographer. Although any photo, regardless of when it was taken is welcome, it is helpful to the learning process if at least one of your submitted photos has been taken within the last 2-3 months.
Members wishing to have one or two of their photos included in the review may submit their photos to email@example.com.
- National Western Stock Show Parade1701 Wynkoop St, Denver, CO
Come join us to photograph the 2024 National Stock Show parade. The parade starts at noon. However, for those who wish to come early for a cup of coffee and social time, we will meet in front of Pigtrain coffee inside Union Station at 11 a.m.
FYI - I am guessing at the date based on prior years (Thursday before show opens) since I cannot locate the exact date on the internet. If you have better information, please let me know. I will update this announcement if the date changes.
- Let's Photograph the Denver ZooDenver Zoo, Denver, CO
Let's photograph the wonderful creatures at the Denver Zoo this January. The zoo is always a fun place to take photos, and doing so in the winter has many advantages including fewer people and a cheaper admission price.
If you have a membership to the zoo and wish to share any available free admissions with members of this group, please let us know. Otherwise each person attending is responsible for their own admission price.
The zoo opens at 10 a.m. We will meet outside the main gate five minutes before 10. Looking forward to seeing you there.
- Macro Photography and Photo StackingNeeds location
Let’s shoot macro and closeup photos of small things and details followed by a photo stacking demonstration by Cynthia of photos taken during this event. Cynthia hosted a similar macro event several months ago, which received many positive comments and a requests to repeat it.
Please bring your camera, a tripod and a lens capable of photographing macro if you have one. Also bring one or two or more small objects to photograph and share with other participants.
If you have a laptop and an application for photo stacking you are welcome to bring it and try your hand at stacking on you laptop during the event.
The event will be indoors, which is perfect for a cold winter day. The exact location will sent to folks who RSVP'd for the event as we get closer.
Cynthia's building has a kitchen and she suggested those who wish to stay afterwards for social time and food let her know. We can pitch in for pizza or whatever participants want and enjoy each other's company.
