To all aspiring photographers looking for an easier way to shoot with other shutterbugs, meetup.com is a website perfectly suited for your needs. Meetup.com provides a service that revitalizes the Internet for local communities. This means as a photographer you can easily connect with others who share your interest. Registration is easy, all it takes is a name, e-mail, and zip code and you’re set. From there, search for a group most accessible to you. If one isn’t available consider starting your own meetup group with other photo enthusiasts.
