We meet on the first and third Wednesday of the month, 7:30pm-9:30pm, from September to June.

Throughout the year our meetings include special guest speakers and interesting presentations from our own members. We participate in monthly photo challenges & review our work collectively in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Our meetings also provide opportunities to share camera knowledge,  discuss a wide range of photographic topics, and socialize. 

We also seek opportunities for local photo shoots, exhibitions, field trips, and connect with other camera clubs. 

Finally, we look for ways to use our photographic talent to support various community causes. 

All levels of skill are  represented ... from beginner to expert.
