Here’s the tentative schedule for our 2019-2020 season. Stay tuned for more information on the season’s presentations, lectures, workshops, competitions shortly. We hope to see all of you back for our 66th season which runs from September 2019 to June 2020! After each meeting, many club members head on over for some shooting at the Botanical Gardens (it’s just across the street!) or the Zoo, or to a local restaurant so consider joining us for that too! Each month we have a monthly photo competition where members compete in their group (open to all subject matter) and can also compete in our monthly theme competition, black-and-white competition and our Altered Reality (manipulated image) competition.
