The Free Regional Facebook Groups!
I also want to start helping other photographers to connect with each other to share their own photography, and their local knowledge from right across the country! So firstly, I suggest that you click through on the photo above and “like” my facebook page. THEN, I SUGGEST that you join one or more of the other free facebook landscape and wildlife regional photography groups listed below serving all of Canada and some parts of the US. This is an excellent way to get in touch with local photographers. This is also an invaluable networking tool to reach locals helping you to research those regions before to go on your own photography vacation. I should honestly admit though that to make the most out of your photography time in a new regional it is a good idea to hire an experienced professional photography tour operator to give you the inside scoop, like me!

The problem with country wide, or world wide FB groups that regional social FB groups solve:
I belong to a lot of awesome landscape and wildlife photography facebook groups that cover large geographic regions. The scope of these groups are great but there are simply TOO many people in them. One of the biggest problems I found with the really large and popular groups was that individual posts get buried deep in their timelines so fast that it’s really hard to keep up with all the different interesting threads. You just end up missing a lot and feeling lost all the time.
I believe Facebook groups need to evolve to be regionally smaller to serve their members better. This is why I created the Canadian Regional FB Groups that I’ve listed above.
And, they’ve caught on very well!
I hope you join the group in the region where you live in to share your local knowledge and to learn more about your home. Feel free to join all the FB groups dedicated to the different regions of Canada that you’re interested in learning about. Please, also join the regional group where you live and share your local knowledge with others too. This is essential part of my business where I give back to the community for free. I hope you find what I offer here valuable.
