Their Wednesday night meetings offer an assortment of programs. Four program areas - print, projected image, photo essay, and mentoring - help members expand their photographic vision and creativity through competitions, peer critiques, and roundtable discussions. Guest speakers regularly share their work and offer insight into their creative image making process. Occasional field trips, photo shoots, and workshops offer fun hands-on instruction and image making opportunities. For more information, including the meeting schedule, visit them online at
