President's Message



Happy New Year!  

"May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night." 
~ from an old Irish blessing




It is hard to believe 2018 is already here!  With the new year comes a new leadership board.  It is an honor to serve as your club president in 2018, along with Susan P. (Past President), Erin Monroe (Vice President), Paula Ritchie (Secretary and Newsletter Editor), and Becki Long (Treasurer).  This club is about YOU and your passion for photography.  It is important that we hear your voice.  Let us know what we are doing right and what you would like to see us do differently 

Many thanks to Susan P. for her leadership as president over the past 2 years.  She has done an outstanding job leading our club and keeping us strong.  Thank you also to Frederic K. for his leadership as past president over the last 2 years and club president previous to that. Their service to our club and community is greatly appreciated.  We have really big shoes to fill!  

This new year brings a lot of photography learning experiences along the way.  Outside of our monthly club meetings, be sure to take advantage of the scheduled field trips (Blue Springs in January!) and volunteer opportunities.  We truly have an amazing group of club members who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences with us.  I personally learn something new every time we meet.  Hope to see you soon!!

Field Trip - January 13 - Blue Springs State Park

             Orange City, Fl 32763

WHEN:  Saturday, January 13, 2018

Blue Springs is the winter refuge for the West Indian Manatee. During manatee season (mid-Nov. to mid-March), you can walk along the boardwalk by the river to the spring and watch and photograph the manatees.  Other photo opportunities include wildlife, the river and the historic Thursby house built in 1872 during the steamboat era.  Remember to bring a polarizer filter for your lens to better photograph the manatees.

Admission is $6.00 per car (2-8 people) or $4.00 single person.

After the shoot we will, of course, have lunch somewhere.

2017 Year in Review in Photos

Casselberry Art House Exhibit

January  



This is a look at some of our volunteer events and field trips from this past year.  As volunteers, we have up-close and behind-the-scenes access in a variety of venues that give our members unique, challenging and rewarding photo opportunities that otherwise would not be possible.  Thanks to all who have enjoyed and participated in event photography as volunteers.  There seems to be no end to the ever increasing requests for our highly appreciated services.  Thank you in advance for all who will again volunteer in the coming year.  Check above in Volunteer Events to volunteer, so you don't miss out on the fun and the experience.
