Developing Photographers

Survey for Macro Photography Weekend with Mark Warner 

Proposing Dates in September 2014.

The Eastern Maine Camera Club is setting up a Macro Photography Weekend with Mark Warner.  Mark is an accomplished professional photographer.  Though his expertise is with aerial and landscape photography, Mark is very skilled in the 'up close and personal world" of macro photography.  Mark is very articulate, and an excellent presenter.  He is also very skilled at image commentary and critique, which will be a part of the weekend experience.  Your participation in the commentary is voluntary.


There will be a fee for Mark's services.  That fee will be spread out among the participants.


We will be staying at Quoddy Head Station. There will be lodging cost for those who plan to spend one or more nights. You can come down for the day.


The proposed dates are either September 5 and 6 or September 12 and 13.


If you have an interest in participating, please go to our Member Survey page and vote your preference:




Feel free to contact Don with any questions or comments.

Results of Voting from Awards Banquet 

For the 2014-2015 Season

Each season we have 7 competitions.   The subjects Open, Nature, Animals and People are repeated each season.  The Open subject is used twice, typically the first and last competition of each season.   In addition to the fixed subjects we vote on two additional "Special" subjects at the end of each season, for the next seasons.

In this years vote the winning Special Subjects for the 2014-2015 Season were:

  • Barns
  • Macro

Joel has created a tentative schedule for next year that will tell you the dates we expect to hold these competitions, and he has also included definitions for all the subjects.  You can find that information on our Schedule page here: http://easternmainecameraclub.org/events.aspx

Our membership also voted to reduce the number of photo's each member can enter in digital projection formats.  The limit was 2 images per member and we voted to reduce it to 1 image per member.  Here is a summary of the photos you will be allowed to submit for each competition next season:

One final item we voted on...the web site tag line.  We voted on the list of Tag Lines submitted by members and the winner was "Developing Photographers".  You can see at the top of the page that it has been updated.
