To our photography friends:

We have news for  you, the club is changing. We are going towards a learning club, having workshops/presentations monthly and would love for you to come to a meeting and see what you think. You are probably asking yourself what about competition? Picture submission? Well, we will still submit pictures. Only the month after a presentation-workshop we will present pictures of what we learned and critique them. Pictures will be in the same format as before using category names as explained in the Member Guide. Don't forget to resize your photos (also found in the member guide). At the year end we will have one competition of the pictures submitted during the club year. We want to be a club that you can come to as a beginner or even experienced and still learn and share. Also as a club we will start having excursions to not only get to take pictures but get to know each other and have fun. If you want to see what its all about, come to our next meeting September 6th, 7 pm at Great Lakes Covenant Village. We look forward to seeing you.


Hope to see everyone on November 1
