Upcoming MAPS Programs

February 13, 2023 – Jessica Cepele – Stacking Images for Landscape Photography

Learn the powerful technique of stacking images to make tack sharp landscape photos. Create more dynamic scenes that are only possible using stacking to extend your camera’s capabilities. Capture the full essence of the night sky to create star trails and compelling Milky Way images. This advanced technique will be presented step-by-step so anyone can use this image-capturing process in the field. Our presenter is Jessica Cepele, an award-winning landscape photographer with 15 years of experience in the field and a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in photography. For more information about this not-to-be-missed program and our presenter, click here.

March 13, 2023 – Jane Fulton Alt – Finding the Muse: A Creative Journey

What started out for Jane Fulton Alt as a community photography class to learn how to take travel photographs ultimately turned into a lifelong pursuit of understanding universal truths. She uses the camera as a tool to try to understand her life and the world around her. Please join us as she shares her ongoing journey into the world of wonder and awe. Click here for more information about this program, her background, and her work.


We are taking a hybrid approach to our monthly programs. This means you can attend in-person or by using Zoom. The Zoom link is emailed to all MAPS members before every program. If you are new to Zoom, take a look at our Zoom web page. Most important: however you choose to participate, don’t pass up this great benefit of your MAPS membership.

If you are looking for past programs, go to Programs. This web page includes a write up and a few images from each monthly program. When possible, we also post a recording of the monthly program for a few months.

MAPS Photo Workshops

There are no workshops scheduled at this time. However, there’s never a bad time to review the handouts and notes from the many past workshops. You may find just the workshop that covers a skill you know you need to learn or touch up.
