Our May meeting will be Wednesday, May 11th at 7pm in the Ocotillo Room at the Kino Center.
This month we will have a guest speaker, photographer Richard Olsenius.
Richard will present “Journeys and Stories through a Photographic Life” covering his career as a photographer for the Minneapolis Tribune & National Geographic.
This should be a fascinating presentation so we hope to see you all there.
There will be no Education meetings in June, July , or August.
The next Education meeting will be Sept 21 in the Kino Center.
The topic will be announced in early Sept.
Thom Sharples has arranged a field trip for us on Friday, Aug 26.
We will leave the Madera Clubhouse/CATC Parking Lot at 9:30 and drive to Tubac.
We will shoot the business district until ~11:00. Then we will move to Elviras. https://www.elvirasrestaurant.com/
We have received approval to shoot the inside of Elvira’s (both restaurant & retail shop) from 11:00 to 12:15 PM. We will then take advantage of the Summer Lite Lunch specials that Elvira's is offering.
Join us for a fun outing. There is always plenty to shoot in Tubac - and the August contest topic is Historical and November is Food.
We will be sending out more info in August, and we will be looking for RSVPs for lunch then.
Photos from field trips can be seen on our Flickr site.
Photos from the March field trip to the Tubac Presidio can be seen here.
