Instructional Classes and outings:
Learning more about our craft is one of the reasons TMCC exists. The club provides a mixture of instructional topics at the regular meetings and classes held on other days. Subject material is selected by the membership and some members may share their expertise. Classes are a mixture of classroom and in the field activities. The club will organize outings to provide the opportunity to share and socialize. The outings may be just a couple of hours nearby Grand Junction or over night to the Sand Wash Basin or Moab or whereever the club members would like to venture
Club competitions are friendly contests open to all club members. Usually 4 to 6 competitions per year and may include digital images (projected), prints, maybe using different processing or cameras such as cell phones. See the TMCC website for the schedule.
Annual Banquet and Awards:
Held in January, all the projected images and prints that have placed in our local competitions are eligible for a final judging. Awards are given for our Photographer of the Year and other achievements. It’s TMCC’s way of ending one year and starting the next!
