Sip and Share networking

Casual, small group discussions for members only

Meet virtually and casually with a small group of nature photographers who share your interest on a particular subject. A NANPA member who is passionate about the topic will start the conversation and serve as host, but your questions, answers, observations, tips, experience, and camaraderie will guide the rest.

Free to all NANPA members and limited in size. Sip and Shares are a great way to meet other photographers.

Host a Sip and Share

Sip and Shares are hosted by NANPA members who volunteer to facilitate conversation. NANPA provides the videoconference platform and recruits and manages participants so hosts can focus on encouraging discussion. Propose a topic and dates/times you’re available to facilitate.

We’ll do the research so you can focus on photography

NANPA Regional Field Events are led by professional photographers with extensive knowledge of the region and its potential subjects. Leaders are capable of shifting on a dime if weather or other unexpected challenges arise. Small groups allow photographers to get to know each other. One-on-one instruction is available.


Learn online about photography, professional practices, or gear

The convenience of a virtual format combined with the intentional instruction of a workshop, NANPA’s webinars cover a wide range of topics in nature photography. Members can register for each month’s live event(s), or access a full library of on-demand recordings from the Members Area.
