Meetup Groups

I have learned sooo much from participating in these Meetup groups – and made great friends too! So wonderful to shoot with other people who will join me spending 20 minutes shooting the graffiti on a dumpster…

These are my local photography Meetup groups – to find yours, go to and search for photography groups in your area.

Portland Vancouver Photography Meetup Group

A great place to meet other photographers, shoot together, get feedback, monthly meetings. I am a (retired) organizer – would be happy to tell you all about it – introduce you around.

Women Learning Photography Together Meetup Group

A dynamic group of women passionate about photography and learning. We go on shoots, have exhibits, have meetings – very supportive and educational. I’m an organizer for this group, please let me know if you have any questions.
