Photographers Anonymous

Fox Valley Club

Photographers anonymous is a club for photographers and all other individuals involved with photographic art creation. It is meant for the artists that have a serious desire to improve their skills and socialize with other like-minded individuals. Models, makeup artists, clothing designers and anyone else that has a desire to help create photographic art is welcome to join our community then participate in our meetings and events. 

Our goal is to help improve the photographic skills of our members through meetings, workshops, programs, field trips and critique sessions.  The Club meetings include presentations and workshops. Travels and events include field trips to learn how to document community activities, and social gatherings. Competition rules, tips, etc. are discussed at meetings and available as handouts. There will be monthly contests that will highlight the photos that have been submitted and promote club members. The winning photos will be published in an annual book and calendar highlighting  the accomplishments of the winning photographers.
