Updated Events Page:
Check out all the images from our many shoot-outs on our Events Page! Some great images from 2021 and 2022 outings are presented.  We are expecting more this year!

--- SHOOT OUTS  ---
One of our featured events during milder weather periods is a Shoot-Out, where we gather at some location of potential photographic interest.  These are usually members-only events, giving members the opportunity to join together out of doors.  Alternatively, members are welcome to shoot from a location of their choice.  Following a Shoot-Out, 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.
