Thank you to Mac Rodgers for creating this slideshow of the December  Mini-Contest.  

TWPC Members,

Happy New Year and welcome to 2022!

Thank you all for being part of so many of our photography activities last year! And thank you for sharing your ideas at our December meeting of what you would like to learn, do, and go see with your fellow photographers in 2022!

Our January zoom meeting will cover the activities that we hope to put in place for 2022! We still need members to step up and lead some of our programs during next year. You will have plenty of help from your leadership team to assist you in planning our Workshops, and Photo deconstructions in particular! Please consider how you can share a little bit of your time and talent with your fellow club members!

Don’t forget to renew your membership for 2022!!

Stay safe during these challenging times with Covid still around!

Joan, Tom and Your Leadership team

"Traveling During Covid" 

Most of us have had to cancel one, two, or more trips due to Covid since 2020. As more of us get vaccinated around the world travel is opening up. Join Kathy Adams Clark for this program about traveling in the time of Covid. Kathy has lead workshops and international photo tours since 1995. She’s postponed eight international trips since Covid became a news item and a common word in our vocabulary. Learn about the business impact of the pandemic. Gain tips into how we can travel during this time, what precautions are needed, and day-to-day life on tour today. Kathy will talk about testing in-country, producing necessary documents, and other fun components in travel as we move into 2022.
