Welcome to the London Photographic Adobe User Group!
London Photographic (Meetup Group) is a fully established meeting place for likeminded Photographers; we have been around for over 6 years and have increased our membership to more than 3800 with new members joining daily. The focus of the group is to be everything around Photography, including the use of cameras, lighting, the Adobe Photoshop family (Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom); professional photographer talks and inspirational/creative activities such as our monthly photo walks, posing workshops, themed shoots, and studio and off camera flash workshops.
We have a progressive calendar with an active support community and try to hold a minimum of six meetings a month for our members to participate in. We also have strong links to the active professionals within the UK photography market, who are always keen to come and speak at our events.
We are applying to be a certified Adobe User group for multiple reasons; 1) We are passionate about the craft of photography and are striving to stay as the largest Photography Community group in the UK. 2) We would like to have a closer relationship with the Adobe brand in the UK and become almost independent ambassadors. 3) We would like to grow our group in different directions; being closer to Adobe in this way will potentially help us to achieve this and move into other sectors, i.e. film and video where we can help members to further explore their creativity in moving images and the editing processes.
