The Tehama County Photo Club was organized in June 2005 with nine photographers meeting in a member’s living room. It has grown to include more than 75 active participants who meet monthly to share pictures, exchange ideas, and learn techniques from each other. The club, which has no dues or formal organization, participates in area events to show and sell work, and also regularly organizes photography field trips. Photographers of all levels are invited to attend. For more information, see http://sites.google.com/site/tehamacountyphotoclub.
