Monthly Programs

Monthly meetings are currently being held via Zoom due to COVID-19. They are held on the second Monday of each month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

All MAPS members are invited to attend the monthly meetings and will receive a Zoom invite. Check out our Zoom web page to prepare for the monthly program meetings and for tips & tricks we might have. Non-members are welcome to view the recording of the monthly program once it is posted.

The highlight of each monthly meeting is a presentation about a photography topic.  Presentations are typically oriented toward nature photography (animals, birds, insects) or landscape photography.  Past topics have also included photographic techniques, e.g. macro photography and flash photography.

Our program committee carefully selects the speakers.  All presenters are accomplished photographers, and many are involved in photography professionally and/or as teachers.  At one or two meetings a year, instead of a presentation, we offer non-competitive evaluation and critique of member-submitted images by a professional photographer.

We hope to have Show & Tell again once we are able to restart in-person meetings.

Adam Schallau – Photographing the Grand Canyon, from Rim to River

Adam Schallau is a full-time professional photographer & workshop instructor based in the American Southwest. In his presentation, Adam shared his experiences, the challenges he had faced in making his photographs and the lessons he had learned in photographing the Grand Canyon from rim to river. See Adam’s website.

Many MAPS members have visited and photographed the Grand Canyon at one time or another but few could have approached the depth and stark beauty of Mr. Schallau’s images, some of which are posted below. From the rim looking downward to the river looking up, the true majesty of the Canyon was revealed. Thank you Adam Schallau!

MAPS would like to take this time to thank Hart Kannegiesser for his years of dedication to the Program Committee to which he is now leaving. Hart and his team have provided our members with so many excellent programs over the years… Thanks Hart!

The virtual (Zoom) presentation allowed for members who are away for the winter to participate. Click on a slide below to enlarge it:
