    You Can Be A Sports Photographer!

    Photographers are needed for the Southern Arizona Senior Games! This is your chance to have fun taking sports photographs. Your photos will be combined into a show for the participants at their Awards Dinner and you might even see your shots on the GVR digital screens throughout the social centers.

    Sign up NOW!  The Games start Wednesday, March 1st, and continue through Wednesday, March 29th.

    Pick the event you are interested in photographing, register on Wild Apricot (get a ticket), and go get some great photos!

    If you want to photograph an event that spans several days, you only need to photograph on one of the days. Pick the one that suits your schedule best.

    Be sure to take photos of the volunteers as well as the event participants.  Then promptly copy your photos (up to 20 photos maximum per event) to a CD and mark the date and event that you covered along with your name, phone and email. (So our slide show creator can contact you if there are questions.) Drop them in the specially marked box on the monitor's desk at the Camera Club.  Ask the monitor to give you a blank CD from our supply if you would like a replacement.
