Local photographer Maria Thibodeau started the Martha’s Vineyard Photography Club after moving back to the Island last year and realizing that the photography community was missing a place to come together. Ms. Thibodeau created the club, which is open to and welcomes photographers of all kinds, all genres, and all levels, to be a place for photographers to find fellowship, knowledge, and resources amongst themselves.
The Martha’s Vineyard Photography Club meets monthly at the Vineyard Haven Library, and will meet Thursday, March 12, at 6 pm (rescheduled from March 5 due to weather). The club is free, and there is no fee or admission to join or attend the meetings.
According to Ms. Thibodeau, the group’s activities are directed by members’ interest, and will include sharing expertise on various aspects of photography. The group will organize photo field trips, host guest speakers, share and discuss one another’s work, exhibit members’ photos, and organize other photography-related activities.
“The Martha’s Vineyard Photography Club is a place to learn, to meet other photographers, to collaborate, to network, to share, and to grow — all in the service of improving photography and increasing community among photographers on the Vineyard,” said Ms. Thibodeau. Interested photographers can find more information and stay updated on the group’s activities through its Facebook page at facebook.com/mvphotoclub or by contacting Maria Thibodeau at 505-500-0350.
