+Drink and Click™ is simple: We meet at a venue to have a drink (alcohol consumption not required), talk about Photography, laugh and have fun together. Then we move to another venue, take pictures in between… and repeat until the night is over! We have photography challenges every month with prizes ranging from camera gear to local area business gift cards. Join us!

Is there a Drink and Click™ in your area?
Have questions? Want to lead a Chapter? Host an Event?

I see the things you do, the choices you make.
I can't help you, even though I've tried.
These are your decisions, your life, your own heart to break.
You said you were a friend, 

but you lied.

We're Live! Come Watch :-)
After a month off to stock up on cocktail supplies, we're back! Join hosts +Juan Gonzalez and +Lotus Carroll as they welcome guest +Toby Harriman to talk about his photography and life adventures. I want to hear about the helicopter rides over San Francisco! :) We'll be talking about that and much more. Photographer panelists +Joel Horwath, +Jacob Lucas, and +Cambria McCue will be along for the ride, so we'll get a chance to check in with them and see what they've been up to as well.

We'll be having a few drinks as we hangout and will be happy to answer your questions (time permitting) so please join us! 

We'll also be unveiling the 3 winners of the Drink and Click™ March Challenge "Shallow DoF" live on the show! See all the submissions here: Thanks to our fantastic prize sponsors for March: +Gary Fong Flash Diffusers, +c't Digital Photography, & +Trey Ratcliff's +Stuck In Customs

We'll be seeing some great photos from all of our panelists and I'm sure there will be plenty of laughs, so please RSVP here and then join us on April 16th for the live show!
