PAC is all about Photography, friends, & fun. Our goal is to enjoy ourselves while promoting the art of Photography & Photoshop, and to give members the opportunity to meet other members with similar interests. As such, we try to schedule both Free Photo shoots & Social Events (movies, rafting, dinners, happy hours, museum visits, etc.)
At our Shoots It's all about serious photography.
While most of the destinations are landscapes, we will also focus on resident wildlife found on location. Serious pre-planning and thought is put into selecting prime photography destinations. It is recommended that those who want to participate have an Digital SLR, but it is not a requirement.
Club Meetings & Mini Seminar
Meetings are held monthly, or when necessary, and will be combined with an educational element or seminar Plus Dinner!
Each meeting invites members to present photographs and ideas for future trips and ask technical questions about their camera, techniques, composition, etc,
Some of the events that are planned are weekend trips, & most are day trips. Some shoots will be multi-location shoots, planned in order of sunlight direction for optimal timing. Most will have a break for lunch somewhere in between. Ride-sharing & splitting fuel expenses is expected and encouraged for economy & flexibility.Location shoots can be suggested by anyone using the NEW Ideas Tab, posting to the message board, discussing ideas in a meeting, or contacting the organizer.
Each location shoot description will have links to important information on the location, links to the hotel or campground, and other details you should know before signing up for the trip. It's up to you to view this and plan accordingly. Some trips when we can guarantee group rates then payment will be due through the meetup page & no other plans will be required on your part!
