UPDATE: We're full up on SMUGs and don't have room for more. But if you still want to start one, give us your info. We'll contact you as soon as we're ready.

SMUGs would never happen without our leaders.

They harness local talent and tirelessly give fellow photographers a chance to reach out, learn and connect.

Sound like you?

If you enjoy bringing people together and are stoked about sharing your know-how, we'd love to have you on our side to charter new and upcoming groups.

What you give:

Your time. SMUG leaders find local venues to hold their meetings and invite guests to feature a new topic each month.

They spread the word through local communities and preside over each meeting.

What you get:

• A Fisheyeconnect.com account to help you organize and advertise.

• A private Facebook page for SMUG leaders like you to brainstorm and chat.

• Sponsorship at your venue up to $150 per month.

• Full customization on your SmugMug site, so you can look your best.

• Stuff to share: cool Smuggy swag and $500 in Bay Photo goods.

• Bragging rights. You make great things happen!

I'm sold! When can I start?



We're full to the brim and aren't currently opening new SMUGs.
