Program Leader: Club Founder, John Shemilt, assisted by Miles Todaro, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
This is the first meeting of the South Fork Natural History Museum’s member-only Nature Photography Club. You must be a current member of SOFO, or you can become a member at this first meeting, in order to join the Club. The idea behind the founding of this Club is to establish a core group (maximum 8 individuals, to start) of committed nature photography enthusiasts who can inspire each other. John Shemilt, a keen birder, nature photographer, and SOFO’s Purple Martin Steward, is the club’s founding member. He is being assisted by Miles Todaro, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator.
At this first meeting, you’ll have a chance to meet John, learn about the impetus that led him to start the Club, and how he sees it operating. There will be plenty of time for you to share your thoughts and ideas with him. Miles will be your SOFO contact, while John will provide the inspiration and will be at some, but not all, of the Club meetings.
The only tangible requirement for Club membership is having a camera that supports at least a 200mm lens. There may be occasional expenses which will be shared by the group.
I you would like to join the Club—and are a SOFO member, or planning to be a member by April 11—please contact Miles by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone Saturday through Wednesday at (631) 537-9735.
We look forward to this new venture and to meeting you at this first meeting on Saturday, April 11 at 9:30am. If you are not able to attend this first meeting, please contact Miles and let him know you are interested in joining the SOFO Nature Photography Club.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
