“We can learn so much from each other when we share about our experiences and the latest technological advancements with each other. There are thousands of weddings every year, even more families, seniors and babies, and there are plenty to go around for us photographers. The benefits of forming relationships with other photographers far outweigh the possible negatives.” ~ Valerie Duvick
In a great article about collaboration on her blog, Valerie Duvick offers this inspiring video featuring the photo girls.

Goal. The goal of this and future meetings will be to meet other photographers and share ideas about new technology, photography techniques, and how to successfully promote and run a photography business.
Virtual Attendees. Some of the content from this and future meetings will be made available online. So, even if you live far away and can’t physically attend, register anyway.
Upcoming Meetings. Future meetings will be at different venues on a variety of dates and times to ensure that over time everyone interested can attend.
Collective Public Showing. One of the long-term goals of the group will be to plan and organize a public showing of photos from photographers from Iowa City.
