Calendar of Events

In light of the various considerations regarding the COVID-19 development, we are no longer scheduling Photowalks & Field Trips or holding bi-monthly meetings on-site in Sierra Madre. However, we are continuing to plan meetings and activities for our members using online tools. As soon as we are able to resume our regular in-person activities, we will. But, until then, keep checking this website and your email for more information.

Apr 27: Larry Meyer presents “Africa” and our members present their Abstracts or other fun photos

This is a two-part meeting which begins with our own Larry Meyer and his presentation of Africa.

The second half of the meeting will be our members photos being shared directly from their own screens at home. You may share any photos but we’ve got a fun incentive for you to look at a series of videos and try your hand at Abstracts. The series is presented by pro photographer Joe Edelman. Take a look at this link for more information:
