July 22nd – Polo at Will Rodgers State Park – 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM - We will photograph colorful dressed players on horseback playing Polo. The Polo field is huge so bring a long zoom lens to capture action that may be on the far side of the field and bring a wider lens for action that is closer. Bring you favorite lens for photographing people and extra batteries and extra cards too. Don't forget to bring water and sunscreen.

Friday 27 July: "Photograph Professional Beach Volleyball Tournament" 

August 11th - HIS LAI Buddhist Temple – Hacienda Heights, We will photograph this Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple which encompasses 15 acres and a floor area of 102,432 square feet. The temple's Ming (1268-1644 C. E.) and Ching (1644-1911 C.E.) dynasty architecture is faithful to the traditional style of buildings, gardens and statuary of traditional ancient Chinese monasteries. After photographing this place we will go to lunch together at a place near by yet to be determined. I have never been here before so I can't recommend any particular lenses to bring so just google some photos of this place and judge for yourself. We are only allowed to photograph outside. No indoor photography is allowed. Bring extra batteries, extra cards, water and sunscreen.

September 15th – LA Museum of Art – 10:00 AM - There are many unique photographic possibilities inside and outside of LACMA and we can photograph them all. Across the street is the newly renovated Petersen Automobile Museum that has very unique architecture worth photographing too.

About Field Trips

As a Photo Group member, you are welcome to join our field trips! Both experienced photographers and novices participate. Our more experienced members are glad to help beginners with all aspects of cameras and photography on our field trips.

Our trip experiences have consistently lead to award winning photographs at club meetings and local competitions.

Past field trips have included locations such as the Civil War Reenactment, LA Metro, Camarillo Airport Air Show, Underwood Family Farms, Huntington Gardens, Descanso Gardens, California Poppy Preserve, Anacapa & Santa Cruz Islands, Farmer's Market, Hollywood Boulevard, the Getty Museum, the Getty Villa, San Pedro, Downtown Los Angeles, Lompoc, the Santa Barbara Zoo, Death Valley, Las Vegas and the Eastern Sierras.

Finally, we hold training/critiquing field trips.  In the morning, we go to a nearby location and shoot with experienced member/leaders.  In the afternoon, we review and critique the images taken that morning.
