About

Welcome to the CWPC…

 Crazy Women’s Photography Club!

There are three requirements for joining this club:

You must be female.

        You must own a camera.

           You must be a little crazy.

At present, we are made up of mostly healthcare workers. Working in healthcare is extremely stressful and the members are each at a different stage in their lives… trying to balance family and work.   This club was formed in response to a request for guidance in purchasing a camera, to help learn the capabilities of the camera and to improve on photography in general.

Because it is difficult to have formal meetings due to the varied work schedules, it was decided instead, to take frequent outings and incorporate our learning in the process and support each other while having a lot of fun creating memories.    

The problem became… how do we disseminate the information to all members in an organized fashion, share and critique photos, and tell stories about the fun we are having together?  And that is how this blog came to be.

We hope you enjoy following along with our activities and that you will give encouragement by adding your comments.  We will be anxious to see how our photography improves over a year’s time span and have plans at the end of that year to put a book together to document this journey.
