Field Trips

During most months, we have photography field trips. Some are local and others are out of town. From a few hours to a few days, they are a great opportunity to challenge yourself and each other and gain insights and knowledge that will improve your photography skillsets.

In addition to hanging out with a group of passionate photographers, you’ll have the opportunity to review and receive positive critique and relax with food, drinks and fun.
