Established in 2005, PhotoCollective is meant a global initiative by and for amateur and professional photographers to meet.
Each participant proposes a number of themes for an upcoming session, a limited number is then randomly selected from the pool at the date of the event. Then you have 3 days to take and upload your pictures for us to share and discuss.

a little guidance

There are infinite ways to participate.
Some like to work on their own, others like to meet before and after the theme draw, so choose what's best for you and organize what you like.

Local meetups often take place in a public space (cafe, library, ...), start with a half hour word-collecting reunion, words are then sent to us for the draw (contact us for the email), we send back the three randomly chosen ones from the complete pool of participants everywhere, and then the group usually goes out photo hunting for 1h30 to 2h before meeting up again to share their experience and shots.

The participants' photos can then be sent back to the site in order to share them with the community (you keep all rights to your photos!).

If you want to participate or organize a meetup, dont hesitate to send an email to .

Photocollective reunions were already held all over the world.
You can also check the Flickr group for older photos from the group (while waiting for full transition to this site).
