President's Message: Kelvin Ringold Good day ladies and gentlemen, Thank you for visiting our web site and checking us out. We are a group of fun, passionate photographers, assembled for the purpose of improving our art and our businesses, and we enjoy working and learning together. I joined our group in September 2000. I came in as a stranger and was quickly assimilated into the family, and we've been a family ever since. I have enjoyed the fun, the education, the friendships, the assistance and the range of talent and vision in this group. We educate and inspire through our monthly meetings, annual conference, summer workshop, and often major national speakers while maintaining our fun and relaxed atmosphere. There's lots to tell you about, but the best way to find out is to come visit one of our meetings -- the first one is free -- and talk to our members, ask your questions and see for yourself what we're all about. We meet on the third Wednesday of every month at Sharkey's in Liverpool. If you are interested in checking us out, contact me or any of our officers Check out our public FB page for updates, or our Instagram for new news and announcements. You came to this site looking for something. Come visit one of our meetings and let us help you find it.

Have an awesome day.
