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.

Winter Solstice-Griffin Museum-Winchester, MA
December 09, 2021 5:45pm-carpool at club-7pm meet at museum


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. See below for the trip planned in December.

Our last field trip of 2021 will be to the opening night Artist's Reception of the Winter Solstice Member's Show at the Griffin Museum of Photography on Thursday December 9, 2021 from 7-8:30 PM. We will meet at the club to carpool at 5:45 pm and drive to 9 Shore Road in Winchester (not too far away, but traffic can be tough) to arrive by 7:00 pm sharp to meet the others in the lobby, to see this huge show in a leisurely way and to partake in the plentiful appetizers and drinks. If you do not wish to car pool, please make sure you are in the lobby by 7pm to meet the rest of us. Masks are required at the museum and we request wearing them while carpooling. At the end of the show, we can discuss going out to a nearby pub if anyone has the wherewithal at that late hour.

This field trip will be especially thrilling if some of our club members participate by submitting a piece of work. The show is not juried, so as long as you are a member -$40 - $50 per year- you can have your work shown at the Griffin and be part of this artist's reception as one of the artists and enjoy free entry to exhibits and Zoom presentations throughout the year. Either way its inspirational to see the diverse work and collection of 60 plus photos that photographers primarily from the Greater Boston area have to offer.

A direct link to samples of this year's submissions and directions is at Winter Solstice 2021 - Griffin Museum of Photography

The exhibit itself will run from December 9, 2021 – January 22, 2022. Please sign up for the trip by using the sign-up link in the left side column of the page. If you prefer to drive yourself to museum, please note that in the comment section.

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
