About Our Meet-Up Group
“There is no place in the world like New York City!”
I cannot think of any other place in the world that offers such a plethora of diversity. The city allows me to capture images of people from all walks of life. New York City absolutely embodies street and urban photography.
On the fourth Saturday of each month, a group of photographers, amateur and professional, gather together at a new location to make this city the backdrop of their photography.
I invite you to join us, as we make this creative platform an environment for meeting other photographers. It's a wonderful way to create a community for professional photographers and beginners alike. All are welcomed to participate.
The photographer's urban meet-up is also a great way to exchange tips and experiences with other creatives. We, all have something to learn or tips to share. So, whether you are a cell/smartphone photographer or a full frame camera user come out and join us for some street and urban photography.
