The Photo Club at the Mt. Airy Art Garage continues to build up steam as more people join and contribute to this growing community. At the core, we are a group of people that enjoy photography. Some members have many years of experience, others are just discovering this art form. Several in our group have recently had their work on display; you may still be able to see work by Van Williams at Mt. Airy Read & Eat and Nathalie Borozny at the Philadelphia Sketch Club

Our monthly meetings (3rd Saturday, noon-2 pm) are an opportunity to get to know each other, discuss photography, and share our images. As long as the weather holds out, we’ll be doing something different on June 20. Meet us at Harper’s Meadow in the Wissahickon (near Northwestern Ave & Forbidden Drive, across Germantown Avenue from Chestnut Hill College) for a picnic and group photo walk. Bring your lunch, camera, and a tripod or monopod, if you have one. We’ll eat first and then explore the area with our cameras. Experienced photographers will be happy to help novices so don’t be afraid to ask questions!  If it’s raining, we’ll meet at the Garage. You can double-check our plans at 10 am that same morning by contacting nicki.maag@gmail.com. If we’re indoors, bring a recent photo or two to share with the group and be prepared to answer this question: What were you thinking about when you took the picture?
