Overview of Programming

Printable 2019-2020
GLPA Schedule
UPDATED 3/31/20

Greater Lynn meets every Monday from September through May. We have a variety of programs each week. Individual write-ups on each of these kinds of programs can be found on the navigation bar above. Summaries of the kinds of programs we have are below.

The current schedule is listed by dates in the column to the left on this page. It can also be found on the Calendar in the navigation bar above. Links to details about past programs can be found in the right column.

The first week of the month is generally an invited speaker who gives a teaching program or a showcase program. The second week of the month is our monthly print competition. The third week of the month is the monthly projected image competition. (A five week month's schedule will have another speaker on the second week of the month.) The other weeks are a variety of programs from other teaching programs, to the member mini show, member showcase, one shot, interclub competitions, and behind the images.

In addition to the regular Monday meetings, we also have events on other nights of the week. There is a Print Group that meets once a month, usually a Thursday. Digital Discussions meets monthly on a Wednesday. The Nature Group meets the last Thursday of every month. The Fine Art Photography Group meets on Thursdays every month. A Still Life Group has three Saturday sessions a year. The Creative Group will have four Tuesday night sessions, the Smartphone Group will meet on Wednesdays once a month, and our new Artistic Vision Group will have three sessions.

The club actively participates in various interclub competitions throughout the season. Projected image entries composed of members work are sent to four pictorial and three nature competitions sponsored by the Photographic Society of America (PSA).  We also compete in B&W and color print competitions. These are international in scope. Projected images (pictorial and nature) and prints (monochrome and color) are sent to three competitions sponsored by the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC).  These are regional in scope. The club also participates in annual invitational competitions such as the Glennie Memorial, an international nature competition; and the Carlson Memorial, a regional print competition.

The Model committee conducts various Sunday model sessions at the club.

We offer a one-day basic Photo Course (tentative date November 9, 2019) and workshops throughout the year. Two other workshops scheduled are a four-hour workshop on Nature in February and an all-day Creative workshop in March. We will offer more workshops as they become available.

We run several field trips throughout the year to various locations which have covered re-enactments, sunrises, lighthouses, fall foliage, Boston at night, and any place a group can photograph and have fun. Usually a meal is enjoyed after the trip.

We have two banquets each year – in June and at holiday time at end of year. In addition, we have several themed Saturday night socials throughout the year including our famed Halloween party each October.

Members have the opportunity to exhibit prints of their work at a variety of gallery settings sponsored by the Club. In addition to this, the members' prints are exhibited in the club hall accented by track lighting.

Our membership also participates in several community projects each year such as food drives, offering shelter/halfway house families the opportuity to have their photographs taken, and restoring antique images for the Historical Society.

So, you can see we are a very active club. Check out the details of our programs. Join GLPA to participate in our activities, make new friends, and expand your photographic learning.
