Club Ideas

As you must have heard (since you are at this site), the new photography club is opening up in your area. Even if you can’t make it to the first meeting or just am thinking about it but don’t want to jump in from the ground floor, we would still like your ideas. At this first meeting on April 16th we will try to establish the mission and the goals of this club so all ideas are welcome. Even the name of the club is up for vote! Some ideas thought up so far:
Sharing sources on the best places to look to increase your knowledge of photography (i.e. websites, podcasts, books, equipment stores)
Sharing a little knowledge you learned every meeting with the rest of the group so we can all get caught up on not just technical terms but the small aspects and opinions from people all over the world
Workshops and field trips because sometimes its just fun taking pictures with other people
Selling photos for charity at local events or business to do some good for the community while getting the photographers name and the club’s name some publicity
Documenting and creating an archive dedicated to creating a visual record of Southern Maine, the towns, the times, and the people that surround our lives.
Let us know if you are interested in joining a photography club and what you would like to see that club do for you!
I talked to Mark over at Champions where we will hold our first meeting and he may have been drinking, but I did get him to say anyone that shows up for the meeting and brings their camera will get happy hour prices!
Come down, bring your friends and bring your ideas and just because you might live up in Portland doesn’t mean we won’t have the next meeting closer to you.
First Meeting:
Saturday, April 16th 3:30pm
Champions
15 Thornton St
Biddeford, Maine 04005

About F R Martin

I like to relatively free in my writing and often try to write from a perspective of a character that fascinates me. I am starting this page as a place to create, share, and workshop but mostly as a ventilation for my writing that often gets shadowed in the drudging reality of the everyday world.

  1. Can’t make it the 16th, but I dig the concept of a localized camera community. Thoughts & ideas posted here?

    • Yep, put your thoughts and ideas here Ian. I want to use this site as the networking board for those that do get involved, kinda like this site will be the meeting place for the official discussion and then when we do get together it will be all the fun stuff. Its ok you cant make it the 16th because we will be having more get togethers, just give us your ideas and we will throw them in the discussion.

  2. Hi Jessica,
    Yes, I’m very into this.But I’m a little jammed on Saturday, however… having a Clifford Park day of caring (trash clean-up) thing in the morning and afternoon and then a Saco Coffee House volunteering thing to set up in the later afternoon and evening. Hope to find out when the next meeting is. Thanks for thinking of me. All the best, Nhoj
