Sam’s Meetup Group – The Craft And Practice Of Photography

Why I Started A Meetup

To provide:

  • Abbreviated, topical versions of my photography classes that are useful to photographers regardless of  level of skill or equipment used. I think of these classes as snippets of topical instruction from my classes that are intended to help photographers increase their understanding of camera operation and photographic composition.
  • A monthly Meetup that is an open forum. The open forum format is intended to help participating photographers clarify and strengthen their own specific photography practice in a way that will firm up understanding of camera operation and photographic composition.
