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 share pictures of their own choosing. 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 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 2020-21 academic year we will start by meeting by Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month at 12:30 p.m. Like others we hope to be able to meet in person in the not too distant future.
