About the Park City Photography Club:
The Park City Photography Club welcomes members from beginners to professionals and from all walks of life. The club meets at the Library on the third Monday of each month at 6;30pm, in Room 101. (Please join if you are interested!)
The Club is run by David Breslauer, a former photojournalist, who still likes to learn about and share photography.
Each month, the club learns about new photography techniques and critique each other's images in a positive, supportive atmosphere in the spirit of improving skills. It is a relaxed environment to as questions and explore topics of interest. More experienced members offer help to newer photographers. All makes and types of cameras are welcome.
This year, many Park City Photography Club members took multiple awards at the Utah State Fair.
