The structure for this event has evolved our the years and is now an AMA — Ask Me Anything. We literally mean it too! Come with a list of questions about your camera, computer, software, or just general photography questions and you’ll leave with answers.
The Sessions are lead by several of the photo experts at FCCP, including Jeff Donald with over 20 years experience teaching photography including 4 years at Montana State University. Jeff's older brother Lew also instructs and was General Manager for Dodd's Camera in Cleveland for almost 10 years. During that time, Lew helped ten's of thousands of customers learn photography.
Please bring your camera if you have specific camera or lens questions. There is internet access, but computers are not required.
The meetings are hosted by O'Keefe's Family Restaurant and we are not charged for meetings at this establishment. No purchase is required to attend. However, O’Keefe’s has a great food and drink menu.
There is FREE parking in the parking lot. It is also well lightened at night.

Bringing you the activities and this site is now a full time job (typically 60-80 hours per week). Thus, I depend on membership fees and on the commissions received from you using the links on this site to make any purchase. My family and I are grateful for your support! - Jeff
