 Day with Bryan Peterson – March 19, 2017

The PCC is pleased to announce an opportunity to work closely with Bryan Peterson as part of a small group. Bryan will be offering a day long, hands-on class on Sunday March 19, 2017.    During this post-seminar class, Bryan will be assisting participants in the application of concepts presented during the “Art of Seeing” seminar he would have presented on March 18th.  Bryan, with guidance from club members, will take the group to a variety of settings around Peoria.   The class will run from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our tentative locations will the Illinois River Front in East Peoria, the Warehouse District in Peoria, Detweiller Park and places along the Illinois River in Chillicothe.  Bryan has asked for some time to shoot indoors and to review/process images.  We will meet in the clubhouse at Shore Acres in Chillicothe for lunch and indoor work.  This will be our location for the day if weather force us indoors all day.  I am open to specific suggestions for shooting locations.

Camp Wokanda Fall Colors 10/29 (For Members)

On October 29, 2016 we are going to venture out to Camp Wokanda to photograph  the fall colors. The colores should be good at that time.  It has a lake, a couple of creeks, and hiking trails we can wonder through. Camp Wokanda Is West of the Mossville Caterpillar plant on Boy Scout Road. It’s back in the bluffs and has lots of trees. We will meet in the parking lot at the First United Methodist Church 116 NE Perry in Peoria. The parking lot is on Perry across from the church. The same place we park for our club meetings. We will car-pool and caravan from there. It’s about a 30 minute drive from Peoria so we will meet at 8:00 AM and leave by 8:15.
