July General Meeting, July 14th, 9:00AM
Guest Speaker: Mary Latham

Photographer - Writer - Traveler

Mary Latham is a photographer and writer.  She studied photography to become a commercial photographer, but found herself at a time and place that demanded "finding good."  She made one of those decisions that turns out to change one's life in profound ways, taking her camera gear and writing tools on a journey with an unknown destination.  She had a goal, but the plan had to unfold as she set out to gather the photographs and the stories that she needed to find.  Fifty states, 43,000 miles, and appearances on the Today Show, MSNBC, The Kelly Clarkson Show, articles in the Washington Post, The Saturday Evening Post, the Suffolk Times, The Upside, and a TEDx talk later, she comes to us to share her story and her photographs.  At a time with so much turmoil and tragedy in the news, this is a presentation that you won't want to miss.

SCLH Photography Club Facebook Page

This is a place for SCLH Photography Members to have a conversation about photography, cameras, and places to shoot photography in the area. You can ask a specific "how to" or "where can I find..." or "how can I improve this shot?" or "thinking of going to.....does anyone want to come too?" You can post great photography-related websites that others might like. Use your creativity.  The SCLH Photography Club Facebook page is accessible to all residents of Sun City Lincoln Hills.

 

There are a few rules.

  1. No politics, none, nada.

  2. The only things you can sell on this page are photography equipment that is usually sold within the club like reselling cameras, printers, etc. Nothing else. Nothing.

  3. Constructive criticism only when critiquing. (Don't tell us that it was a stupid, boring shot, We'll figure it out anyway.)

  4. If you are selling your photography, protect your copyright. You may not want that one up on the Internet on Facebook. Post a link to your photography website instead.
