Street Meet DC
If you want to take photos with a bunch of cool people in the Washington DC area, then you need to check out Street Meet DC. The group meets once a month in a random location in the DMV(DC, Maryland, Virginia) and anyone is welcomed. You can network, learn from other photographers, and photograph the several models that show up just so you can flex your photography skills. I went to my first Street Meet last month, and I got some killer(imho) shots, met some talented photographers, and I learned a few things about shooting models. Check for Street Meet DC on Instagram.
