What we're about

The Southwest Photo Club was founded in 2006 as an educational community photo club located in Littleton, Colorado. We have monthly meetings and/or events that feature highly-regarded local photographers who present on specific topics of interest based upon our member’s requests.

We encourage our members to share their photos, not for competition, but to help each other learn and grow as photographers. Each month there is a photo assignment intended to challenge our members to take images of a specific subject, or topic, to stretch their photographic talents. These are then presented at our monthly meetings.

Our club is cool! Guests are welcome to attend two club events or meetings at no charge. Like us? Then join us! Dues are only $20 for singles and $35 for a couple (due annually in January). For those who join after September 30th, dues are $10 for the remainder of the year. Additional member benefits include the availability of a monitor calibrator, a sensor cleaning kit, and a mat cutter available for members to check out for short time loan.

MARCH PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
“If it was easy, everyone would do it.”

Join retired combat aerial photojournalist, Master Sergeant John Nimmo, Sr. USAF and the SW Photo Club on Thursday, March 11th, to learn about Aerial photography on the ground and from the air.

As a photographer and aviation nut, its pretty hard to top Air to Air photography on the “fun and technically challenging” chart. There is nothing as awesome as planning and executing a great shot in the air or from the ground.

Keep in mind, there is much more to Air to Air or Ground to Air than pushing the shutter and getting the pictures. It requires lots of planning, coordination, and communication to pull off a successful aerial photo assignment.

BIOGRAPHY
33 year veteran, Master Sergeant John Nimmo, Sr USAF, Ret served as a combat aerial photojournalist with the 4th Combat Camera Squadron, Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina and Master Instructor of Photography, Director of Photojournalism and Digital Imaging at the former Lowry Air Force Base, Colorado.

A native of New York, NY, John has uniquely served his entire military career while living in Colorado since 1986 other than being gone for his combat deployments, and humanitarian & training missions.

John has been named Military Photographer of the Year for Portraits and Pictorials and his images have been distributed and published worldwide by Lockheed Martin, Airman Magazine, Air Force Times, Military Times, Aviation Magazine, L.A. Times, Aviation News, DefenseBriefing.net, and Colorado's own Channel 2, 4, 7 & 9 news.
