Hello fellow photographers! I'll get right to the point. It's going to be a busy May. We have the usual mix of free events, classes, and social activities. As always, I prefer to send out one email each week or so instead of you getting an announcement each and every time I post something new on the calendar. And remember you can always see whats on the calendar by simply clicking on the calendar iconlocated on our clubs meetup website.
