2014-2015 Photography season kick-off

Welcome to another glorious season of photography. The Sun Lakes Camera Club kicks off the 2014-2015 year with their first meeting to be held on Thursday, October 2 in the Sun Lakes Country Clubs Navajo Room from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The club is growing and we will begin the season on how to get ready for competition. We will also be offering tips on your choice of editing tools, such as Elements, Lightroom and Photoshop throughout the year. Come learn a new trick to add to your toolkit.

Once members are educated, they can gear-up for our field trip to the Out-of-Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. Join Janet Ballard and Karen Melching’s lead on a three-day wildlife photography escapade this coming November 7, 8 and 9. This overnight trip offers an evening workshop followed by a morning guided walk with a wildlife photography instructor. Space is limited. December’s fall trip to White Sands, New Mexico is open for sign-up. For more information and availability on either event, please contact Janet Ballard at [email protected]
