Photographer's lunch

Yesterday I got together with some local photographers here in San Diego. Masen was kind enough to facilitate the event.
It is always nice to talk to other people in your field and share things with them. I am always so amazed at how giving this photography community really is.
We went to Pizza Nova in Hillcrest, which has some yummy pizza!
Here are a few shots of the lunch.
-I have to preface saying that I grabbed my camera as I was going out of the house and didn't realize the lens I had until I got to lunch. Needless to say, the 85mm wasn't the best choice for such an intimate meeting :)












As I have mentioned before, my hyperlink doesn't work so here are all the great people that were there yesterday

Thank you everyone for being so great yesterday. It was so fun hanging out with you all and I hope to be able to do it again soon. Aiden had a good time too :)
Hugs!

Sounds like fun! I wish I had something like that here in Dallas. I really think having others to bounce ideas off from and work with/learn from would be a huge asset.

photography is about the only business that I have seen where people sharing info with one another. We need something like that here in El Paso.
