Print Critique meeting (2:00 PM EDT)
Join a small group of club members who gather in an informal setting to show a few of their printed photographs and receive constructive feedback from fellow photographers. The meeting takes place once a month at a member's house where participants enjoy some light snacks while sharing their images and discussing their vision. This is a gentle and fun atmosphere that promotes friendship and learning. Let Jim Samanen know if you would like to attend and he will let you know the location and directions. You can email Jim at

Club Meeting-Guest Speaker Sara Ascalon: "Creativity: A Conversation with Yourself" (7:30 PM EDT)
Humans are innately creative creatures. For many, that creativity is freely expressed. For others, that expression is shackled by repression. Sara's presentation provides insight on how to tap into the creative energy within you and experience the joy of letting go and sharing your vision with others. BIOGRAPHY: “What is it like being inside that head of yours?”  I’ve always had a slightly off-beat way of looking at the world and have been asked that question many times over. But how do you respond to something like that? After decades of searching, I found my answer in photography. Photography allows me to reproduce my vision in a shareable, accessible form. Whether it’s the things I see with my eyes or my mind, I can capture a moment, a view, or a flight of fancy and relive it with those who honor me by coming along for the ride. From the things you see everyday and tend to overlook, to the absolutely extraordinary, it’s a strange and wonderful world. I seek to share that wonder – real and imagined – in my images and inspire and embolden my students to unleash their own creativity and do the same.

Workshop - Just Me and My Camera (9:30 AM EDT)
"Just  Me And My Camera”   A Photographer Workshop                                    “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” – Ansel Adams The concept for this workshop is that we all see things differently even if we are looking at the same exact thing. This workshop will be an interactive collaboration that hopefully will inspire your photographic creativity. We will meet at the Oakbourne Mansion, 1014 South Concord Rd. West Chester, PA 19382 at 9:30 am. to 10:45                 Each attendee will be able to photograph anything they want on the grounds.  We leave the park at 10:45.  We will proceed to the Choir room at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 10 W. Pleasant Grove Rd.West Chester, PA 19382 at 11am to 12:30pm   Each attendee will share one unedited image directly from your camera with the group. The photographer will explain what inspired them to take that photo and why they selected that image to display. What did they see before they clicked the shutter? How did your mind’s eye see lines, textures, patterns or colors? Is there something you saw that triggered an emotion?                   The group will discuss the image, the photographer's artistic vision and impacted use. The idea is to explore and reveal the photographer's and the viewer's perspective.  The emphasis is on what a photographer sees and captures and not on post processing issues. Each attendee should bring a camera, a thumb drive and a bucket full of creativity. Please, contact Wayne at to let him know that you will be attending.                                     "Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field. "- Peter Adams

Monarch Migration - Cape May, NJ (9:00 AM EDT)
Monarchs and photographers make good partners. Join us at Cape May Lighthouse as large numbers of Monarchs make a brief stop before continuing the migration across the Delaware Bay on their journey south. Also - with a little luck - we will also witness the annual migration of hawks. For more information visit Driving to Cape May Lighthouse takes about 2.5 hours from Exton. We will have carpooling from Exton Panera (Panera Bread, 151 East Swedesford Rd, Exton, PA 19341) leaving at 6.30am. While that certainly is earlier than most outings it should allow us to get to Cape May while it is still cool, not too windy and with early-day lighting. - And if chasing monarchs isn't enough then there are a few other events: There may be a hawk banding beginning at 10 am.  It is not on the schedule yet, but it has been done over the past several years. There will be a Monarch Tagging demonstration from 2-2:45 pm.  This is a fascinating thing to see being done! Cape May Bird Observatory/Northwood Center (CMBO) will have a live monarch butterfly chrysalis display set up within their shop.  This is a fascinating way to see the monarchs emerge from the chrysalis (if we’re lucky to be there at the right time).  The address of the CMBO is 701 Eastlake Drive, CM, NJ (not far from the CM lighthouse).  Hours - 9:30-4:30.  Carpool will leave Cape May for Exton after lunch at Exit Zero Filling Station at 110 Sunset Blvd, Cape May, NJ 08204 (very close to the Cape May Lighthouse.) Bring your favorite equipment for butterfly and bird photography and footwear for walking on the wetland-trails and / or the beach.   Please confirm to Svenne Juul in advance whether you are interested in car-pooling, and if you would be willing to drive if additional vehicles are required.  The timing of this event is subject to change if either whether or monarchs aren't cooperating. The final confirmation of the timing will be
