Dear High Desert Photographers Club Members
The Officers and Board of Directors have been monitoring the news about the corona virus, and discussing what that might mean for the club. We have decided to temporarily suspend all formal club meetings. This means there will be no meeting in April or May. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as circumstances indicate.
March and April critique nights will be online. Further critique nights will be determined.
If any of you are going to put together a little informal photo shoot, feel free to announce and share that on the club’s facebook page. Per CDC recommendations, we encourage you to keep the numbers small, to not attend if you are feeling ill or have been around someone who has been ill, and to try to avoid contact with each other. Wash your hands, take good care of you, your families and loved ones, and your neighbors.
Keep shooting! Some of your inspiring and beautiful images might help people endure this challenge.
Guests are always welcome!
For photographers of all levels.
Meetings are on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

The purpose of the High Desert Photographers Club is to assist its members in improving their photographic skills through fellowship and involvement in club activities. High Desert Photographers is an excellent forum for expanding your vision as a photographer, learning new techniques, and sharing your work. Have fun learning from other highly experienced digital photographers, image editors, and printers. We offer anonymous critiques as well as photography workshops and field trips.
Join us as our guest to see for yourself how this process can inspire and assist you. The Club is serious about photography and open to new talent.
We chose a wide variety of programs to cover throughout the year and include special guest speakers, technique nights, and field trips. We have enjoyed lectures on composition, exposure, etc., after which members are encouraged to ask any questions which they may have concerning the subject matter of the night.
The 2nd meeting of the month is dedicated to photo critique. The Photo Critique night provides the opportunity to receive an informal critique of your photographs. Feedback from varying perspectives enriches the discussion - we won't always agree! The group is open to members of all levels - whether you're just starting out and want guidance on basic structure of your photos - strength and weaknesses or figuring out how to proceed - or you want input on choosing the strongest images, their sequencing, etc. for a show or portfolio.
Members may submit two photos. Photos should be emailed by 10:00 p.m. the night before to: email@example.com. Please size them no larger than 1920 px and 200 dpi.
Browse our website and learn more about membership and our competitions. Our Membership Information page provides details on our club. We suggest you come and visit us at one of our meetings on the second or fourth Thursday of each month, except in November and December. We would be happy to show you what we do.
