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.

Field Trips and Evening Exposure

Upcoming Field Trips

Various field trips are scheduled throughout the year to places in New England. Sign-ups are necessary to get an idea of how many are attending. Carpooling is generally available which is a great way to get to know other members of the club and to discuss photographic ideas and techniques while travelling to the venue. Sign ups are easy: at the club or thru the online form listed in the left column.



Field Trip News and General Information
September 01, 2020 NA


The Field Trip Chairmanship is still open, but in the meantime, volunteers from our membership have been leading our trips in the past couple of years. We would however love for someone to actually be the trip coordinator and lead a few trips throughout the year.

We are now looking for a few 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 s.jmosser@comcast.net and discuss your ideas.

Normally trips would be listed chronologically on the page and we would add the info to the listing as the time got nearer to the trip. You would then look below for specific information on any of the trips as it is posted. Other trip information would be posted as we had 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.

Fire Pit Lights & Glow- Trip Leader Patrick Brosnan, MNEC
October 01, 2021 6:30PM-Shoot starts at 7PM


We tried to do this trip right before Covid hit us and shut us down. We have now set a new date for it. This is a new and exciting different field trip - one we have never done before. Come spend a few evening hours in the backyard and try your hand at long exposures with colored lights.

Patrick our trip leader states - Together we can create complex layers of lights or we can stick to pendulums and interesting arcs and sways. I highly recommend a tripod and a telephoto lens will compress the layers but wide angle lens will allow you to catch more of a scene.

We will light up the fire pit and share the glow with various options spread about the yard. We have a studio, if you need some extra warmth or cover from rain but there are quite a few stairs to get up to it. Adirondack chairs abound in the yard but feel free to bring a chair of your own along with a small cooler and drinks if you want to.

Please arrive at 6:30pm and we will shoot until about 9pm. At this time there is no plan to meet at the club to car pool but if someone needs to do this for transportation please notify Susan Mosser at s.jmosser@comcast.net and she will see what she can set up.

The address is 110 Maureen Drive, Tewksbury, MA.

Please sign up for the trip using the online sign up in the left side column, then we have your name and contact info should the trip be canceled.

If you have any questions please use the email link in the left side column or email Patrick directly at Patrick@pbrosnanphoto.com

Griffin Museum-Winchester, MA
December 09, 2021 Time -TBA


Our Artistic Vision Group Leader Janice Koskey will be leading s few field trips again this year to museums with interesting photography exhibits and places where you can also shoot interesting architecture as she has in past years. She is looking for a fall exhibit that would interest us. See below for the trip planned in December.

She is planning a field trip to the Griffin Museum on opening night of their Winter Solstice exhibit for the reception on Thursday December 9, 2021. It promises to be a diverse collection of 60+ photographs from greater Boston people primarily.

The exhibit will run from December 9, 2021 – January 22, 2022. Our members will be able to exhibit in this show. GLPA members would need to join the museum and become Griffin members to participate in the exhibit. Members can put one piece in without being juried. Janice Koskey would like to encourage printing members (but anyone is welcome) of GLPA to become Griffin Museum members and participate in the exhibit and then go to the opening reception to view your work among other Boston area photographers.

For more info on this see the Griffin website or email Janice at koskeyj@yahoo.com



Spring Nature Trip-Garden in the Woods-Trip Leader Jake Mosser
May 14, 2022 9AM


Nature is waking up all around us. By Saturday May 18th it should be visible in abundance everywhere. The destination for this trip has not been set in gold yet but will probably be the ‘Garden on the Woods’ in Framingham, MA. It is 45 acres of woodland botanical gardens where wildflowers abound. A path leads you through the woods to a small stream and lots of color from the flowers. Peak bloom is about Mothers day so the following Saturday May 14th will be prime time. The Garden opens at 10am so we will probably meet at the club about 8am to car pool.

More information on equipment and details on the day will follow in mid April. We will go to grab a bite to eat after a few hours in the field photographing. You will need a macro lens or close focusing equipment, a tripod if you own one and a cable release. Wear good walking shoes, dress in layers and if you want to lie on the ground, it may be wet. You should also have cash with you for the meal and to help with your share of car expenses. Questions email s.jmosser@comcast.net
