Monthly Meetings


Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Grace Community Church. Meetings begin at 6:30pm. Doors open at 5:30pm. Our monthly meetings include guest speakers, demonstrations of techniques, print of the month competition and share your work.

We welcome potential members, visitors and guests to attend our monthly meetings but ask that they make a $10.00 donation that helps us pay for our meeting room. If a guest chooses to become a club member by the start of the next monthly meeting we will apply the $10.00 donation to the cost of membership.

    Today is the deadline to submit your "Share Your Work" photos for display at this month's club meeting. Of course, you can send your photos at anytime during the month.

    Photos and/or videos should be emailed to Dave Kurshan at  shareyourwork@lwrdpc.com no later than the Friday night prior to the Wednesday meeting. Any submissions received late will automatically be carried over to the next month.

    Each member is allowed to send up to 3 photos and/or a short video each month to be included in a presentation that runs during our club meeting. Those photos and/or video can be on any subject as this is a great way to let other members see what kind of photography interests you, and what you have been shooting during the past month.

    There is a maximum of 3 photos per member and one short video, but there is no minimum, so feel free to send just one or two photos or a short video if you are comfortable with that.

    Please try to adjust your photos to 1080 X 1920 px, if you can. If you are not sure how to do that just send them anyway. If Dave has a problem with their size he will let you know and walk you through the process of how to resize your photos.
    Feel free to talk to any Board member at any meeting if you have any additional questions or concerns. Members can also E-mail any Board member. Their E-mail addresses are in the "Directory"  or in the EXECUTIVE BOARD section under the "ABOUT US" button above.

               April Speaker:  Jen Noble

    Jenesis is the birth of an idea. In video storytelling, that’s a pretty amazing feeling. 

    Jen Noble is passionate about her craft. She has a gift of taking a story subject, infusing it with captivating video and powerful writing that engages and inspires viewers.

    Jen is a respected TV producer and writer with more than 30 years broadcast experience. Her production company, Jenesis Creative produces video content for clients like American Cancer Society, Johnson & Johnson, Sea World, American Heart Association, Johns Hopkins and Ashley Home Store

    Jen's work has aired on several media outlets, including PBS, NBC, CNN, Entertainment Television, Discovery and HGTV.

    She has been privileged to write for network talent Jack Perkins, Jack Hanna, Dr. Dean Edell and Katie Couric.

    She has been honored with 14 Emmys Awards, the Associated Press Award, two Griot Drum Awards and The Society of Professional Journalists’ Green Eyeshade Award.  

    She grew up in the Midwest in the small farming town of Freeport, Illinois, home of the Pretzels. In her spare time, Jen enjoys running, biking and rock climbing with her son, Ethan.

    TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But how do you translate that same philosophy to video? It starts with the art of storytelling. 

    Jen Noble shares her method to finding the heart of a story and using the senses to create a captivating video that inspires viewers and leaves a lasting impression.
