Our season continues with an ongoing series of interesting programs related to photography and enhanced skills.  We are excited to be able to share our passion for photography with you. 

We meet both in person and via Zoom most months, to learn from professional and seasoned amateur photographers as they share fantastic images and their knowledge of photography to create them. Also we will be offering opportunities to meet with fellow members and explore new and familiar locations to practice our photography skills and learn from each other.

--- SHOOTOUTS  ---
A Shootout is where we gather at some location of photographic interest.  These members-only events give members the opportunity to join each other at interesting locations and discover the fun of taking photos together.  Alternatively, members are welcome to shoot from a location of their choice. 
Following a Shootout, members are welcome to submit copies of their favorite images for a monthly viewing and constructive comments by fellow members.

     A Bit of History

     Our club traces its roots to the late 1800's, but with the onset of WW I, the group suspended activities.   They later were resumed in 1937, and then incorporated shortly thereafter. A famous early member was Willard Seiberling, son of F. A. Seiberling, founder of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company.  He would host wonderful photo outings at Stan Hywet Hall, his family home.
 

Over time, we have evolved from film to the digital era, and are mostly active in projected media, with an occasional local display of prints at public locations.
