The Ukiah Photography Club, founded in 2010 by Chris Pugh and Judy Judd, is a group of Mendocino County digital and film photographers representing a range of styles, experience, and expertise. The Club's monthly meetings and periodic outings include instruction, photo critiques, and lively discussions.
Meetup provides the Club with a platform for organization and communication. Events and activities are posted and members notified by email. Alternately, members can log onto the site to view the calendar of events. (Email settings can be found under "My Profile".)
Most events are free. Individual members are responsible for any food or entrance fee expenses. Occasionally the Club travels for photo shoots or exhibits, usually by car pool with riders offsetting gas costs.
Membership is $25 per year, paid directly to the Club. These fees are used to pay for expenses such as meeting space and website costs. Paid membership is required for participation in the Club's annual show, usually in September.
Members are asked to RSVP for all events. This helps the Organizers to insure that there is adequate meeting space, transportation, etc.
The Meetup site has a discussion section for announcing events, workshops, and contests, and for seeking and providing advice. It is not for spamming or non-photographic announcements.
On Sunday, October 20, at 3:00 pm, Dharma Realm Buddhist University will hold a reception and short talk with Martin Verhoeven for his "Contemplative Photography" exhibit. The public is invited to this free event to view the photographs and hear the photographer’s story. Light refreshments will be served. For more details and to RSVP see https://www.drbu.edu/events/contemplative-photography-exhibit .
Members of the Willits Photography Club came to our show opening - let's return the favor. Jack and Volkhard will be showing, plus some very talented photographers from the Willits area. Maybe we can carpool - jump into the discussion if you need or can provide a ride (I'm willing to drive). This is an opportunity to see some great photography as well as to pick up ideas we might use in our own shows.
We will continue our discussion on whether or not to have a theme for our annual show. We will have another mystery photo critique and time for photography announcements, discussions, and show-and-tell. Our photo share theme is "reflection" - please limit yourself to 5 photos. (Note that November 3 is the end of Daylight Savings.)
