LADIG – Los Angeles Digital Imaging Group

LADIG (Los Angeles Digital Imaging Group) was a photography user group dedicated to advancing the art and science of digital imaging in all its forms. Visitors to our monthly meetings would both learn from professional imaging educators and be inspired by photographers and visual artists that came to present their work.

Founded by Lee Varis in 2004 and managed by Daniel Sofer, Greg Dyro, and George Simian; LADIG was the official Southern California Adobe Lightroom User Group. We hooked up with Adobe in 2010 because we were heavy users of Lightroom & Photoshop, and wanted to educate & support those tools within the photo community.

LADIG closed down in 2019 after 15 years of operation.

LADIG provided a forum for the discussion of ideas, techniques and best practices in a casual, networking environment; built around regular meetings with presentations from members of the community and special visitors from around the country.

Thanks to the City of West Hollywood for providing a monthly venue, to Adobe for numerous resourses; and to everyone who participated over the years as an attendee, presenter, or sponsor.
