Monthly Virtual Meetings
In Person Meetings Suspended Through December 2020
At its recent meeting, the Hill Country Camera Club Board of Directors voted to suspend all "in person" meetings through December 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather, we are holding virtual meetings on Zoom the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM. Invitations to join the meeting are emailed to members the week before the meeting.

July Presentation: National Geographic Photo Ark
The National Geographic Photo Ark, led by photographer Joel Sartore, is a multiyear effort to document every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts. Explore thousands of photos in the Ark to find out more about wildlife around the world and the threats they face in the wild.
July "Show and Tell"
Joel reminds us all that photography can and should be approachable. Every shot does not have to be formal and use expensive equipment, and photography certainly should not be an adult-only hobby. Through diving into Joel’s work as well as exploring the outdoors and our own visions as photographers, we grow into empowered storytellers and changemakers. Nowadays, most of us forego fancy camera equipment and use our cell phones to capture the stories of our day-to-day lives. The best camera is often the one you have on you. Together, we relish the challenge of deciding how to define moments we experience into a compelling story that documents each of our journeys.
In this COVID-19 world, now is a great time to delve into photography as a means of learning. There’s so much you can do with this special craft in nearby parks and our own neighborhoods and backyards.
With this in mind, all Hill Country Camera Club members were asked to imagine they had been invited to join Joe Sartore's Photo Ark project and send their own photos of birds, fish, animals, amphibians and other "beasts" that roam the Hill Country.
