Welcome to HoustonPhotowalks!

At least once a month, we visit a place to socialize and practice our photo techniques. We even meetup up for meals. We're a fun bunch, no pressure, no stress. Any camera owner welcome, mirrorless, DSLR, or camera phone. Come ready to practice, learn and share what you know among other friendly photographers!
