If you love to take photographs, this group is for you. We organize group shoots, exhibit our work here and discuss photography, post-processing, printing. Our members share and learn from each other, critique photographs and exchange ideas about gear and techniques. Above all, we make new friends, enjoy this beautiful area, and capture unique moments with the camera. This is a photo club that is entirely supported by member contributions.
"Captured moments dragged into the future; moments that should have been allowed to evaporate into the past and should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after -- look for them only in pictures, for it is no more than a dream remembered."
This is a congenial group of laid back folks, we have a lot of fun and camaraderie, and we endeavor to keep it that way. Membership is at will, requires an application and organizer's approval, and either the organizers or the member may terminate the membership at any time without cause. When we look at an application we try to assess, among other things, the enthusiasm that you bring to the group and if you will be able to participate actively. Please do not bother to submit applications with one word responses. We have a diverse group of people of different age groups and ethnicities and life styles. Our members also have varied skill levels from beginners to accomplished photographers.
Membership is $10 for 2015 and is non refundable. There is a 60 day free trial period. Dues must be paid before you can attend meet ups after the trial period. We usually do not charge fees for individual events and you will not be dipping into your wallets every time we have a learning session with some of our experienced members willing to share what they know with you. However, there may be fees such as entrance fees, parking fees etc charged by other parties or costs that we may share for an event. Some meet ups may be in more intimate settings such as member homes and attendance for them may be by invitation.
We do require you to include a recent head shot photograph of yourself in the application. Attendance at any of the meetups is at your own risk and you agree to release the Organizers from any liability related to a Meetup Group or event.
