About the Club

General Information

The club’s goal is to explore the entire photographic experience from equipment to photographic techniques, from shooting to post processing and printing.  Toward that end, we offer an opportunity for members to display and discuss their photos, learn new tips and techniques, and seek advice on issues they may have with experienced photographers who are club members.  Most importantly, we provide a friendly forum where we can share our knowledge and learn from each other.

In addition to meetings, members of the club may meet occasionally to head out for a shoot in the local area.  Located in California’s gold country and close to Yosemite, our club has a wealth of opportunities to explore the old mining towns of the Mother Lode, the many specialized farms, ranches and wineries, and the grandeur of Yosemite National Park and the Sonora Pass area.  

Please check out our Meetings page for more details, and if you plan to attend, please check out our events calendar to confirm the date.
