Photography Meetup Group

Winn Robbins, formerly from Mike’s Camera and member of Flatirons Photo Club, has started a new photography Meetup group. It’s a free Meetup for photographers of all stripes and experience levels. He’s aiming it at many different contexts of photography, from portraits to wildlife, from landscape to macro. If club members have interest in particular topics, he would be happy to add more meetups to the upcoming list. You can contact Winn at his gmail address winslowrobbins.
