The Manitoba Foto Friends are photographers of all ages, skill levels and walks of life. Regardless what category your photographic obsession falls under they’ve got you covered. Founded in October of 2011, they were a small group of friends who loved to “Celebrate the Joy of Photography” and that has since become their motto. They created an online meeting place where they share images, organize events and learn from each other along the way. Their current membership is around 250 photographers and they are a registered not-for-profit group. They accept donations to fund activities and pay for the small costs they have to keep the group running, but all funds collected go back into the group. In addition to their online community, the Friends meet once a month socially, gather at least as often for workshops and group shoots, and are a wonderful group of supportive and friendly people. If you are just starting out in photography and want to learn or are a seasoned pro and can help others grow in the field, www.manitobafotofriends.ca is the place for you!
