Joining Padre Trails

Hello, and Welcome!
If you've read this far, chances are you're a photographer who may be looking for a group with whom to share your images and your love of photography. I urge you to consider Padre Trails.

Established in 1948, Padre Trails Camera Club (PTCC) is the oldest continuously active camera club on the Monterey Peninsula. This is an exciting time for us and I invite you to share in that excitement.

PTCC is open to anyone with a love of photography and a desire to improve their photographic skills. The tools, techniques and tricks of the trade discussed at our meetings by members and our competition judges will benefit photographers at all levels. Member skill levels vary, of course, and this diversity is one of the Club's primary benefits. Exposure to the wide range of subjects, skills, techniques and independently judged critiques of Club images helps all our members.

Our meeting atmosphere is friendly and easy going, with an emphasis on making the best possible images and having fun in the process. I hope you'll choose to investigate Padre Trails Camera Club.

Ken Jones, President
