Field Trip Policy Reminder

With the new season upon us, we want to encourage members to take advantage of the field trips that are researched and made available during the course of the season. These provide excellent opportunities to interact with your fellow photographers and to make some top caliber images. We hope that the "old hands" will take an active part in mentoring newer workers in the photographic process. We also need to remind all members that while our Field Trip Leaders and other volunteers identify locations for photography and attempt to help with logistics, neither they nor the Greater Lynn Photographic Association has any control over travel to or from a location or the conditions encountered at it. All participation in field trip activities is voluntary on the part of the member and any minor member they may bring. Neither GLPA nor the Field Trip Leaders or volunteers assume any
liability for any accidents or other situations which may occur as a result of a member's participation in a field trip.

Upcoming Field Trips

Field Trip News and General Information
September 01, 2019 00:00

The Field Trip Chairmanship is still open, but in the meantime, we have a few club members who have volunteered to lead trips for the upcoming camera club year.

We are still looking for more members of the club to lead a trip or two during the year. It doesn’t have to be anyplace fancy – just someplace you enjoyed shooting or an event you know is happening. If you are interested in leading a trip, e-mail Susan and discuss your ideas.

For the 2019–2020 club season, five members have already volunteered to lead trips. I will list them chronologically on the page and will add the info to the listing as the time gets nearer. Please see below for specific information on any of the trips as it is posted. Other trip information will be posted as we have volunteers to lead them.

Field trips are a way for you to meet your fellow member photo enthusiasts in the club. Trips range from day time all day trips to one to two hour sunset trips. They are usually followed by a late breakfast, lunch or dinner stop with the group depending on the time of the trip. Members meet at the camera club to car pool, as it’s more fun to ride with a few other club members while giving you an opportunity to visit. Of course you are always welcome to drive to the destination on your own and meet the group there.

For all trips you should have good walking shoes, light jacket and cash to cover your meal and your share of gas, tolls and or park entry fees with your car pool driver. Equipment needs will be listed on the website or in the emails for the trip. Normally it a short to medium telephoto lens and a tripod.

You should sign up for all field trips on the field trip page of the website using the online sign up in the left side column. Then we have your name and contact info should the trip be canceled.

Hope you will be able to attend some of the scheduled trips once they are planned and posted.

NEW-Church Architecture & Interiors –Revere & South End Boston-Trip Leaders Ellie & Walt Losee
January 18, 2020 7:15 AM-NOTE time change

PLEASE NOTE-Bring quarters with you to put in parking meters for the second church in Boston as there is only street parking.

This field trip will help settle those winter blues while giving you a warm place to photograph and have a fun day with friends. We will meet at the club at 7:30am to car pool then travel to the first church in Revere-St. Anthony’s of Padula. This will be a quick one hour shoot as there is a service there and we need to be out by 9am. Then the group will head to the South End of Boston to the Chapel of the Holy Cross which is a very beautiful and large church with several small chapels for a 10am shoot. Elle and Walt hope to also be able to offer one more church to visit and photograph. More information will follow as it is set up.

Equipment needed would be a short wide angle lens, tripod and cable release would be helpful. If you want to do close ups of the details in the stained glass windows you would need macro equipment. After the shoot lunch is planned either in the South End or on Route 1 at a restaurant closer to home. You will also need money to cover your lunch and gas costs if car pooling.

We thank Elle and Walt for making these arrangements and joining the field trip leaders group. This is a venue we have not done before. Be sure to sign up using the link in the left side column of this page. If any questions please email Elle at
