Programs are scheduled throughout the season.  Topics of interest for the program meetings range from technical discussions of photography to post processing techniques to subjects about specialized photography. These are great opportunities to learn and improve.

Another fun activity is the photo excursion; we go as a group to local photogenic sites each month of the year. You will be amazed to find out how different the end-results are even when the shooters are only a few feet away from each other. If you have a question, the group has an answer.

As well, at the end of each year, we have a Year End Party and Competition where we enjoy building our social relationships to the next level. No matter if you treat photography as a hobby or as a business, you will get friendly encouragement and support from the group. Friendships will grow with others who also enjoy photography.

The club offers to its members a monthly or qualterly newsletter. In each newsletter you can expect to find a snapshot of what our club is like; what we do, the fun we have, the things we learn; the places we shoot. You will also see the individual successes of our members in inter-club and CACCA competitions and in photography as a whole.

We meet at the University Center, 1200 University Drive, Grayslake, IL
