Photography Club of Cape May

Events for 2024

Updated January 2nd, 2024

Here is what we have planned for the year so far. Small group meetings and shoots may be added as they evolve. PCCM has a new meeting place for small group activities. We are meeting the second Thursday of each month, 1-3:00pm at the Cape May Lutheran Church, 509 Pittsburg Ave., Cape May.

We have scheduled ***ONLINE MEETINGS*** via Zoom every month so please keep an eye on your email inbox and bookmark this page to keep up with the latest. We have some great speakers as well as photo shares and discussions about locations and photo techniques planned. The virtual meetings have been a lot of fun so get your Zoom software up to date and join in.

The general plan is to have a Speaker or Workshop each month with a followup/related workshop in person at the club or outside on a shoot, Sharing ZOOMs often, small group workshops on various topics like "How to…”, some Lightroom small group evenings, and some social events like going to the winery and shooting the ripe lovely purple and green grapes on the vine and having something to eat, etc.

Speakers and club activities are lined up thru December, 2024. Check back often for recent updates. Check our Facebook Group too. Check the Club Blog page for more details and changes.

If you have ideas or suggestions for activities, speakers or photo shoots for next year, get them to Dottie Rogers. It's never to early to book speakers and events for 2025!

In the past we had pot luck dinner and showed 8 min (max) slideshows members

created, most often a scavenger hunt or themed slideshow. Not sure we can do

that at our new venue. We’ll see how that works out, now that we have a new very

nice, well equipped meeting space.
