FOCUS GROUP: Portraiture

PORTRAITURE Focus Group(s)

This focus group is being revised and will consist of two types of focus groups; and will take place primarily in two locations.  Chris Williams will be leading these groups, assisted by Tim Biddle.  Both are excellent photographers.  They will trade off the lead position depending on their personal calendars.  Several of you have indicated a desire to help in a variety of ways; please be sure Chris and Tim have your name and contact information.

The groups will switch back/forth, depending on the agenda, between two main locations:  The North United Methodist Church ("NUMC") at 38th & Meridian and the Athenaeum at the corner of Mass Ave and New Jersey.   It is hoped that we can set up a more permanent traditional style studio at the NUMC location and utilize stage and event resources at the Athenaeum.  Other locations will be used on occasion.

Those locations, times, etc. will be posted within the next few weeks.

If you are interested in attending any of these meetings be aware that these are for both beginner and advanced members.  This club does not/will not differentiate between those who have/do not have equipment.  Basic equipment will be available at the studio location.

The mission of this club is that thru a sharing, supportive, and cultural platform, the proficiency level of its members will automatically be raised. To what extent, will depend on the amount of time each individual member wishes to invest and exert themselves.

Keep an eye on the calendar, as dates, times, and locations will be posted within the next 2 weeks.

    Mike...This was not our choice. The Athenaeum has a "paid" event going on and offered our space to them since there was no guarantee we'd be there. We get the space for "FREE". Since we have had spotty attendance the last few months...we've been taken out of the promised "every" week status. If we get our attendance back up...and quit cancelling out...that more than likely won't happen. However, with them not knowing if we're going to be there/not be there, the Athenaeum has to take "paying" requests. This is one of the many reasons why it is very important for us to RSVP for events...then to honor that and go. As a club member...attendance is very important and expected so we can keep these wonderful "free" space.

    Same goes with Gallery space. We have a Gallery show at the Landmarks in October. That space is very much sought after. We've been extremely fortunate to get it 3 out of 4 years. Yet...if our members don't respond...we may lose that offer.
