Focus Group Field Trips


Enjoy photography with others who share your special interests and passion by participating in a LWRDPC special interest Focus Group. Special interest focus groups are small gatherings of club members who meet periodically to share experiences, exchange tips and techniques, mentor each other, and provide constructive feedback.

Special interest focus groups work under the LWRDPC umbrella, and coordinate all activities through the main Club Executive Board. Each group has a facilitator who coordinates that group's activities so club members interested in participating with a focus group should contact the respective facilitator. Only club members are eligible to participate in these special interest focus group activities.
