Who We Are

President's Message

Thank you everyone for a great April meeting!

I especially want to thank David Green for his awesome presentation on 'How to win at print comps'! I was actually dragging my heels on entering anything in the upcoming spring print competition but David's presentation really inspired me to get going! So watch out!

I also had a couple first time visitors talk to me about joining our club! How wonderful! It's always nice to get new members coming in sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with us.

Don't forget to review the proposed changes to the bylaws. If you're not going to be at the May meeting, or you would rather just vote now and get it over with, click on 'Bylaws Vote' on the top of this page. It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with all the bylaws so take a couple minutes to go over them.

And elections are coming up next month! If you're interested in running for any position on the board please let me know. Elections will be held at the May meeting.

Spring Print Comp!

It's show off time!

Get those awesome images printed! The deadline will be here before you know it! The deadline this year is 5:00PM on April 28th. Images can be dropped off anytime at Santa Clarita Camera. Make sure to read ALL the rules!

Print competitions are such a valuable learning experience! Please enter those prints then come to the judging on May 3rd from 9:00AM to around 12:00PM; listen to what the judges say about your print and learn from it. Make sure you don't miss the reception at Hart Hall later that day. There will be beer, wine, sodas, and finger foods from 5:00-8:00PM.

Please invite your friends and family. There will be a lot of great images to share with them, and a lot of great photography 'talk'!
