A lot of people have contributed to our budget, and not every one of them can attend any one single event.  Each event should be self-funded so we at the worst scenario, break even.  

If a location is charging us a set amount to visit, we will divide that amount up by the number of people who are attending, add a small amount to cover PayPal fees, and possibly a tip for the event organizer who is doing the work to provide the photography experience.

Please note, required FTC Legal Disclaimer: HoustonPhotowalks uses affiliate marketing and advertising to generate revenue for our budget and the organizers who run the group. This money is used to pay Meetup.com fees, website hosting fees, classroom fees, teaching fees, donations to museums and venues, provide bottles of water when possible, compensate organizers for their time, etc. When you click links, the HoustonPhotowalks organization may receive a fee when you purchase a product or service.
