AUGUST 12 MEETING - Mario Corvetto, Guest Speaker

A native of Peru, Mario is co-founder of "Andean & Rainforest Expeditions", "Mondo Verde Expeditions", and the "Evergreen Photo Alliance" stock agency. A multi-ligual, award-winning photographer, he has donated his time to NGOs including the American Refugee Committee, Catholic Relief Services, and World Vision International to create image banks to raise support for people traumatized and displaced by war. He has also worked on assignment with UNICEF to promote issues of children's rights, nutrition and health care.


Theme for August coincides with the "Annual Mt Evans Hospice Calendar" competition.
Last year, several member photos were selected. Official deadline for calendar submissions is Monday, 8/25.
Guidelines and entry form can be viewed and downloaded from

Our 8/12 Meeting is an excellent opportunity to receive a critique of 'up to three' of your calendar entries.
This theme also nicely coincides with topic of our last guest speaker, Weldon Lee, whose 7/8/08 presentation included discussion on "winning photos".


More experienced members "interested in mentoring".. as well as members "interested in being mentored" are asked to email Co-President Annie ( for a pairing-up process of one-on-one mentoring. Our monthly general meetings, and regular mentoring sessions, are wonderful opportunities to listen, learn, and contribute. But from time to time, we all experience the need to have specific questions answered.. technical settings explained in detail.

JULY 22ND MENTORING SESSION - Pat Gautier, "Basic Camera Settings"

Metering Mode, Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority... just some of the many camera settings we need decide. Pat will discuss the settings he uses, and the "why" behind those settings. He will then open the topics for discussion. Whether new to photography and wondering how the more experienced arrive at the settings they tend to use, or... another Pro interested in comparing and sharing, it should prove to be an evening of lively discussion. All skill levels welcome!

Join us at 7 PM (6:30 - social time) at Evergreen Fire Station #2 in Bergen Park.
