What we're about

If your passion is photography, join us to be inspired, learn, explore, and share.

We are a friendly group for beginners, professionals, and everyone else in between who simply love to shoot photographs. We can all learn from one another about taking better photos, seeing different places, meeting new people, and having lots of fun. If you use a Mirrorless, DSLR/SLR, Film, Point & Shoot, iPhones, Disposable Cameras . . . join us!

We try to do one in-person photo walk every month, during which we collect our
regular $3 dues. Then, we meet on Zoom, usually the first Tuesday, to share photos from our walks. Watch for all upcoming events.

Lightroom Session - How to Use the Transform Panel

Photographer Critique: (TOPICS TBD) - The Zoom Call

Needs a location

In this digital age, we share work online but don't always get the help we hope for. Likes are fun, comments are better, but conversation about the work we make is the best. Image reviews or critiques don't have to be scary! Sharing your work in a nurturing, supportive environment can help you make better photos.

* Share work you are really proud of.
* Share work you have struggled with.
* Share work that didn't work out.

For this "Critique" Zoom meeting, share 2 photos of either Metallic or Leading Lines (or one of each). The photos don't have to be from one of our walks, just have to fit the topic.
Links will get posted below.


  • SPECIAL - 6:30 - Social Time
  • 7:00 - Announcements
  • Critique will follow.

Our "critiquer" is Ron Peiffer - Ron is a Maryland photographer based in Severna Park. He is the Vice President for Contests for Arundel Camera Club, the Vice President of the Creative Photography Society of Baltimore, and Member-at-Large for the Maryland Photography Alliance.
His work has appeared in Maryland Photography Alliance gallery shows over the past several years, and he has received the Frederick R. Kelly Photographer of the Year award 4 of the last 5 years from the Arundel Camera Club.

You have until noon on Wednesday, 7/26 to submit your two 5MB photos.
