Field trips give members a chance to take photographs accompanied by other members and to learn from each other, often in new locations. A field trip may also provide the opportunity to pursue a particular theme with an eye to upcoming image evaluations or competitions.
Most trips will last for a morning – about three hours and will usually not involve extensive walking. They will often finish with a meal to relax and socialize and to give feedback on the event.
Field trips generally require participants to register in advance. This tells the organizer how many will be attending and allows for attendees to be emailed as a group concerning any updates or schedule changes.
If you need a ride to the meeting point, please let the trip coordinator know so they can try to arrange car-pooling.
Each participant is responsible for their own admission fees, meals or other expenses.
Each trip will have a leader. Use the Calendar to sign up for a particular trip and to obtain notifications and other information.
Techniques and Equipment:
Some trips may be preceded, at the meeting point, by a short explanation of techniques and suggestions. If any particular equipment is suggested you will find details in the event description.
Field Trip Galleries:
A gallery will have been set up for each field trip, and all those participating are encouraged to upload their images from the trip to their image library and to assign them to the applicable gallery. Others will benefit by seeing the photo opportunities and the techniques used.
Please contact the Field Trip Coordinator if you have any suggestions for future trip destinations or themes, or if you would be willing to ‘brief’ participants before the shoot, or even lead a trip yourself.
Members and others participating in field trips do so at their own risk. Neither the Club, field trip coordinators nor trip leaders assume any responsibility for members’ safety. By participating you accept full responsibility for your own safety.
