Our 2017 fall meeting will be November 4th at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, OR.  We will open the doors at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 10:00 a.m.

The invited speaker will be Robert O’Toole under the generous sponsorship of SIGMA.  Robert is a professional nature photographer who specializes in wildlife photography. He is widely published and conducts an impressive array of workshops and tours. Robert reports that his passion is to help others grow photographically.  The titles for Robert’s presentations are: “Ten Secrets Every Aspiring Nature Photographer Needs to Know”, “The Dream Shot: Tips and Strategies for Making Memorable Wildlife Images”, and “Hand-held Macro Photography – Some of the Most Fascinating, Interesting, Exciting, ‘Forget-All-Your Troubles’ Experiences a Photographer Can Have”.

As a special treat, NPPNW will provide a lasagna and salad luncheon  for all participants at no extra charge.  Hence, it is especially important that you pre-register as soon as possible if you plan to attend.


SENSOR CLEANING: Bring your digital camera bodies to our meetings for specially priced sensor cleanings by Advance Camera.  They will professionally clean your sensor, clean the outside of your camera body, and upgrade your firmware if needed while you enjoy the speaker.  Cost is $35 for crop sensors and $45 for full frame units.   A lens mounted to the camera is included in the cleaning.  If you have additional lenses you wish to have externally cleaned, the cost is $15 each.

Please Note: If bringing in your camera for sensor cleaning, please be sure it has a fully charged battery or we won’t be able to clean it.

A block of rooms has been secured at the Holiday Inn Express which will also be the site of an informal conversation among NPPNW members beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening.
