Mountain State Photographers Conference – August 1, 2015


The Charleston Camera Club is pleased to host the first conference for non-professional photographers in West Virginia. Our goal is to bring these photographers together and offer content that will appeal to many interests and specialties. Whether you focus your attention on landscapes, macro, portraiture, editorial, nature, wildlife, sports or general photography, we aim to provide opportunities to learn and improve.

Our “Conference Eve” with Rick Sammon will be on Friday evening, July 31, 2015, and will begin at 6:30pm. Our location is the Assembly Hall at Cedar Lakes Conference Center at 82 FFA Drive in Ripley, West Virginia. The “Conference Eve” is a free event, and will be a kick-off to our Mountain State Photographers Conference, which will begin the following morning. Registered attendees are guaranteed a seat, but remaining seats will be open to the public.

The Mountain State Photographers Conference will begin on Saturday morning, August 1, 2015, at 7:30am. Our ADMISSION FEE will be $55.00.  Breakfast and lunch, along with all activities, are included in your admission fee.
