Meetings, Tips & Techniques and Events

We meet twice monthly at the Bergen Park Fire and Rescue Auditorium, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen, CO 80439. After the presentation, we hold a member photo contest and anonymous critique by the speaker.

We also offer a Tips and Techniques (T & T) session the fourth Wednesday of most months. T & T is typically more hands-on and covers topics of interest to members, such as cleaning your camera sensor, using LightRoom, and how to prepare your photos for display.
