Annual Seminar

There has been an increasing number of inquires as to our annual Seminar. Due to circumstances, the Peoria Camera Club will not be hosting a seminar this year and possibly future years to come. There were many factors that contributed to this decision. The Peoria Camera Club would like to thank everyone for their support over the last 20 or so years that we have been hosting this event. I am sure it will be missed by many.

Exploring the World of Drone Photography

Seasoned drone pilot and photographer, Keith Folken, will cover time tested advice in the exciting world of drones to help you get your photos “off the ground”.

  • Buying tips – what gear should I consider?
  • Planning your shoot
  • First Flight – Getting Started
  • Taking Photos and Video
  • Post Processing Tips
  • Rules – Legal and Ethical
  • Question & Answer

Keith is one of the most creative photographers and videographers in the Peoria area. We hope you’ll join us this Tuesday, February 26, 7-9 pm to see the amazing work Keith has been doing and experience Drone Photography from a new perspective. Guests are welcome.

CICCA Spring Salon

Hello PCC Members,  I have been receiving emails regarding the upcoming Spring Salon.  I am the new CICCA rep, so I thought I would fill you in before we have  a train wreck on our hands. ( See what I did there).  The turn in is on the 24th of this month, April for those of you not aware.  The cost for the Salon is 4 puny dollars per digital and print.  That’s 8 dollars if you enter both digital and print. 4+4=8.  Mom would be so proud. Please go to the ciccaclubs.com website, click on the spring salon documents menu and open the spring salon invitation to gain all of the knowledge needed to enter.   If you need any assistance, please feel free to email me and I will try my best to assist you. You can also email the webmaster for CICCA, again me, so either way you can’t loose. Please put CICCA in your email title so I don’t send you to spam.
