Sonora Photo Club
Welcome to Sonora Photo Club
The Sonora Photo Club was founded in 2005 in the California Gold Country town of Sonora to promote the art of photography. Photographers of all experience levels from beginner to professional are welcome to meet in a supportive and friendly environment where they can share their expertise and develop skills in all aspects of photography.  The Sonora Photo Club meetings are held once a month on the second Sunday of the month in the afternoon. 

Be sure to check out club member photographs by visiting the Member Photographs page.  Agendas and club minutes can be found on the Meetings/General Business page, and under About the Club you'll find more information on club activities on the News and Information page.

As a child I was influenced by two photos.  The first was a picture of my Uncle Rex in his aviator uniform standing on an airfield with a plume of smoke coming up behind him.  I have no idea what was going on around him at that time but he was eventually shot down over Korea.  I never had the opportunity to meet him (more).  (Click on any photographer of the month photo to see it larger.)
