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 below.

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 Chair 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 Chair 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 Trip General Information
2016-2017




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.

Future trips will be planned on a monthly base and will be posted as the information is made available. Hope you will be able to attend some of the scheduled trips once they are planned and posted.

Simmons Field Nature Trip





Portsmouth, NH & Cape Neddick, Maine
December 16, 2017 11:00 AM


This is a rescheduling of the trip to the South Coast which was canceled. This winter field trip will start with Portsmouth, NH for a couple of hours to photograph Christmas decorations and then proceed to Cape Neddick, Maine to photograph the Christmas Lights at Nubble Lighthouse. Christmas lights at Nubble are classic New England photography and there is usually a Christmas tree formed from Lobster pots lit up with Christmas lights that is also worth a shot or two. Shoot it from a distance or move in for a different view with some close ups.

Meet at the club at 10:45 am to car pool for a strict 11 am departure.

Wide angle lenses (about 24- 105mm) and standard lenses (50 mm) are probably best for this trip. You will also need a tripod and a cable release would be helpful.

Clothes suitable for the weather and good walking shoes would be recommended. Don’t forget to bring cash for the dinner that is usually part of the trip and gas expenses for whatever car you are in.

Please use the online sign up in the left side column of this page so Dick has your contact info should the trip be canceled.
