Focus Group Field Trips

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

Focus groups work under the LWRDPC umbrella, and coordinate all activities through the main LWRDPC club board. Each group has a facilitator who coordinates the activities. Club members interested in joining a focus group should contact the respective facilitator. Only members of the club are eligible to join a focus group. If you are interested in joining the club and/or a Focus Group contact the facilitator of that group.

    On Wednesday January 31, 2018 we will be taking our first Landscape Focus Group Field trip of 2018 to the Venice Pier in Venice, FL for sunset AND the rise of the full moon shortly thereafter! A group dinner will be held after the event at a nearby restaurant. We hope you will be able to join us.

    We will meet at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall at 4:00 PM to sign release forms and set up car pools. We will leave promptly at 4:15pm for our 30 minute trip to Venice. We will send out emails two days before the event to confirm how many will be attending and to get a head count for dinner reservations.

    Upon arriving at the Pier area: 1600 Harbor Drive South, Venice, FL it is recommended to park as close as you can to Sharky's Restaurant. The pier parking lot is large and this parking location will assure you the shortest walk down the beach to the pier. We will gather on the beach near the pier.

    Sunset is at 6:10pm and Full Moon Rise is at: 6:34pm. We will plan on dinner at Sharky's afterwards. There are no fees for this event other than dinner.

    For those wishing to brush up on your sunset and moon photography skills, please visit the the following links:

    *** Focus Group Field Trips are for Members Only ***

    This event is limited to 12 photographers
    as Focus Groups are intended to be more of an educational event
    than a get together to take photos.
