Photography feeds our soul.
This is a Women's Photographers Community Only.
Women of any photographic experience.
This community aims to empower women photographers, no matter what stage they are in their craft, from the novice to the professional.
As a members-only community, we seek a safe and supportive environment to help empower each of us to achieve our photographic goals through inspiration, motivation, and encouragement.
This is your GO-TO site for your creative needs. Here you will find a variety of resources, forums, and valuable feedback from the community.
This is a place to connect.
This is a place to share.
This is a place to learn.
This is a place to grow.
Each of us has a unique vision with a vital voice. Your ideas, opinions, and thoughts are important, and my desire is to provide this place for you.
Leave our egos behind
This is a place where we will not judge, we will not bully, and let us leave the politics behind. We are women here to support each other.
I wanted to start this community as I believe there needs to be more support for women photographers. I've never been fortunate enough to have a female mentor. I am forever grateful for the male photographers who have taught me and shared their knowledge. I treasure all my photographer relationships, but I think it is important that women have other women to learn and share from.
Too often, women are taught to follow the rules than to take risks. Over the years, I've seen many talented women photographers not recognized for their work. I want more for all of us. I want women to have more empowerment, confidence, and to genuinely know how talented they are!
