October 23 – General Meeting – This months’ General Meeting Speaker is a Pacific Northwest photographer from Federal Way. Joe has been shooting seriously since 2006, but has dabbled in photography for many years. I have been admiring his photographs on PNW Photographers and NW Photographers Facebook pages for many months. I am especially drawn to his landscape work because of his eye for composition, color, line, texture and detail. His photographs are mostly from the Pacific Northwest, and you will see images from Mt. Rainier, the John Day Fossil Beds and several other Northwest Locations. If you love landscape photography, then you don’t want to miss this presentation.

UPCOMING FIELD TRIPS
October 6 – Bellingham and Mt. Baker Region to be led by Susan Bradley. Because of the distance from Olympia we suggest make arrangments to spend Friday night at one of the many hotels in Bellingham. Early Saturday morning we’ll follow Highway 542 along the Nooksack River to Picture Lake and Artist’s Point with Views of Mt. Shuksan.
The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.
Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests. You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests. You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.
We have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels. Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events. Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.
