COVID-19 – For 2021 and until we reach full confidence to safely gather in large numbers in community settings we will be scheduling all our meetings online and they will remain free. We use the technology of Zoom video conferencing for our image display and our gathering discussions. We will collect your images through our website member area with the same procedures and deadlines as our in person meetings. Our online meeting access information is available on this website and meeting reminder dates and times will be published using Facebook Events and distributed to our Email Notification List.

Please stay safe, healthy, and entertained with all you do. Warm hugs to you and your family.

Welcome to the destination for photographers. We are a group of photographers that gathers together to network, share knowledge, and support one another. Our conversations emerge through the presentation of our work. Our commonality is that we seek the answer to the question “what makes an effective image”. We discuss all aspects of photography, including but not limited to: locations and access rights, tools and techniques, ethics and responsibility, copyright and ownership, and social media/publishing.

What we are about: Having fun, creating relationships, and lively discussion assisted by sharing our photographic captures with each other.

Where do we meet?: Currently all our meetings are online. Details to successfully participate are available here.

When do we meet?: We meet the 4th Sunday of each month from 2-4 p.m. with a few adjustments for holidays. Please refer to our schedule for all the latest information.

Who can join?: All people regardless of photographic experience who want to have fun exploring captured moments of light and their impact on others along with learning how that effect was achieved. We explore imagery captured with cameras (film and digital), produced digitally (3D graphics, post processed) and analog (contact printing). Having photographs to share is optional. The specific topics covered for any session are independent of prior gatherings and take on the interests of the gathered group.

Cost: Our online communities on Facebook, Instagram, and our membership area of our website are free resources to participate in. While we are meeting online due to pandemic restrictions our online meetings are also free to attend.

Sharing Images: Upload your digital images prior to the meeting using our member area.

Deadlines: Online digital submissions are accepted until Sunday morning at 8 a.m. the day of our meeting.

Between meetings we stay in touch using our online communities; Facebook BPG Discussion Group, Instagram, Email Notification List, and our member area.
