Have you ever thought about becoming a professional photographer? Do you have a nice D-SLR camera to take photos of your family and friends, but you don’t hardly know how to use it? Are you simply interested in the art of photography and you’ve been looking for a way to learn more about it? You need to check out the Cherokee Photography Club.
Established in September of 2004, the Cherokee Photography Club is a social club created with a goal of providing a forum for photography of all levels. Their meetings are an opportunity to share with others their interests, ideas, experience, and passion for the art of photography. Their mission is to support and promote the art and science of photography in all styles and formats, as individuals, an organization, and as part of the community so that all may enjoy and benefit from the images of their lives.
The club meets twice a month to discuss their latest photography and showcase their images that they are entering in that month’s competition. Each month is a themed competition that allows for members to compete against each other. Points are accumulated and year end winners are announced. This month the club is also taking a 10 day “field trip” to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to capture beautiful photos of the geography and people.
To find out more about the club, contact them or visit one of their upcoming meetings. You can find the Cherokee Photography Club at the Cherokee County Arts Council at 94 North St, Canton, GA on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 pm.
