Jeff Smat, President email@example.com
Meeting Location: Topsham Medical Building, 4 Horton Place, Topsham, Maine
Meeting Times: 2nd , 3rd & 4th Thursday, of the month. 6:30PM – 8:30PM
The mission of First Light Camera Club is to foster enthusiasm for the photographic arts, and education to make our members the best possible photographers they can be. Our meetings are fun and interactive, and we feature well-known speakers in the local and regional photographic community. Each month we have a digital or print critique night, a speakers night and a hands-on tech night. This year we’ve learned a lot about Lightroom and NIK software, flash photography, flower photography, nature and wildlife photography, and astrophotograhy. Every year we survey our members to find out what programs they would especially like to have us offer, and our meetings reflect what the members have indicated they would be interested in learning.
We also plan 2 field trips each month held on Saturdays or Sundays, taking advantage of what our beautiful region has to offer. In the past, we have taken field trips to the Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine, the Butterfly Place in Massachusetts, shot many beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and visited many other historic and scenic sites around New England. We have a passion for lighthouses!
Our club was formed in 1990 by a few passionate photographers. We currently have 75 members. Some of us have been photographing for a lifetime; others have just taken up the hobby. Some of us are professionals; others are hobbyists. We all have two things in common: an appreciation of art, and a love of the photographic medium.
