Photo Club

Photo Club

The UMRA Photo Club is open to all UMRA members who have an interest in photography. We welcome photographers of all abilities. Most of us are struggling amateurs who like to take pictures and want to get better. We benefit from the kind help we get from each other.

We meet monthly to share photos and talk about different aspects of photography. Recent meetings have started with “theme pictures”—club members contribute pictures related to a specific theme.  Members also bring pictures on a flash drive of their own choosing to share, talk about or seek help with. Attend a meeting to find out more and share in our fun and laughter.
 
From time to time we meet for a photography shoot somewhere in the Twin Cities. Recent shoots have been at the Como Zoo and Conservatory, along the Green Line in St. Paul, the Minneapolis Farmers Market and at the newly refurbished State Capitol.  In May 2018 University photographer Patrick O’Leary led a photoshoot on the east Bank campus of the University.
 
There is active sharing of web resources on photography by members of the Photo Club.
 
For the 2019-20 academic year we will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the St. Anthony branch of the Hennepin County Library in the small shopping center at the corner of St. Anthony and New Brighton boulevards. A number of attendees gather for lunch before the meeting at the Great Dragon, across the parking lot from the library.
