The goal of the Photography Committee is to stimulate interest and encourage experimentation in photography with our membership. It should be a fun, learning experience. This is done in a very low key manner, through meetings and occasional rambles in different areas of the city, for example, squares or the waterfront. We are lucky enough to have very talented affiliates who offer expertise and guidance. Our aim is to help everyone find and share their creative flair. Pictured are members' and affiliates' submissions to various shows around the country.
