The Viewpoint Photo Club is comprised of residents of the Viewpoint Golf and RV Resort in Mesa, Arizona, who are interested in photography. Photographers with all levels of experience are welcome to join. It doesn't matter whether you use a 'point & shoot' camera or a high end DSLR. If you enjoy photography, you are welcome.
Club meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of the month from November through March. Meetings are held in the Kokopelli Room beginning at 3:00 pm. Meetings typically consist of a program on some aspect of photography, but may also consist of sharing, critiquing, or judging photos.
In addition to regular meetings, outings (photo shoots) to places or events with photographic interest are scheduled throughout the year.
The club's major event of the season is the annual Photography Exhibition, in which members submit photos in several different categories for the public to view. Photos are graded by an independent panel of judges and are separately judged by a vote of the public. Winners are announced at the Annual Awards Banquet.
Additionally, members may take part in various workshops and classes on subjects relating to photography.
We hope you find the rest of the site informative and stimulating, and we extend to all photographers a warm invitation to join us for our meetings. So, why not come along and see for yourself what we’re all about. For further information on membership contact any members of our Board. Click on the "About Us" link above for more information about our club.
Membership is open to any residents who are interested in digital photography. For more information, go to our Membership page.
