I am the organizer of two Meetup Groups. If you are not familiar with Meetup Groups, they are basically groups of people with similar interests that get together through Meetup.com. Group members meet to enjoy their hobbies and interests. To find Meetups in your area just go the Meetup.com and search for activities that interest you.
Create Photographics Meetup Group is about anything and everything concerning photography. We get together at various locations for photo shoots, workshops and seminars. We meet in the Fredericksburg, Stafford County, Spotsylvania County area.
Night and Low Light Meetup Group is, as the name implies, about Night and Low Light Photography. We Meet as far North as Baltimore MD, as far East as Annapolis, MD, as far West as the Shenandoah Valley and as far South as Richmond, VA.
I hope you will join one of these Meetup Groups or one of the thousands of other Meetup Groups!
