What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
We will be visiting various locations, ranging from within the Dallas metroplex to about a 3-hour driving range from Rowlett, to share our enjoyment of photography. The location will vary from month to month and each photo walk could last 2-3 hours up to an all-day excursion.
We typically meet at the Rowlett DART station and carpool or caravan to the destination; however, due to current COVID restrictions, we will normally meet at the destination until it is safe to carpool again. If meeting in Rowlett is not convenient, you can meet up anywhere along the way or the destination itself. Most members are willing to pick others up, if necessary, and convenient to their location so please let everyone know if you will need a ride to any event and every effort will be made to accommodate you.
The 9:00 am - 5:00 pm is a guestimate as to time involved and this time will be changed as necessary, depending on our destination. The destination information will be detailed in the comments of each monthly meetup once known.
Please be sure to bring whatever photo equipment you will need based on our targeted shoots. Some locations require an admittance fee, and this information will be posted ahead of time. Since we will typically be out for several hours, please be sure to plan for lunch while away and make sure you have cash and/or a card to pay your way.
***Please Remember details are subject to change***

This is an in person event, not online.
Bring your cameras and cell phones and try your skills at photographing gems and minerals at the Jim and Gail Spann home in Rockwall. There are also pastures with wide trails to photo wildflowers if you want an outdoor shoot. An array of gemstones and crystalline minerals will be available to photo, so consider lighting for the minerals and even practice the art of stacking, or just enjoy natural light photography. This is a private residence. There is plenty of parking. The Spann home is located in the far north part of Rockwall, off of FM 552. Please rsvp and directions will be shared.
