The Wasatch Camera Club sponsors and co-hosts a number of large events each year. These include our annual that PhotoOp program and the Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot, as well as other major, non-routine types of events. Below are descriptions of our two regularly scheduled annual events as well as what is on-track for the upcoming year. Check back often as we find further ways to expand your photography.
The club's PhotoOp events include bringing major photographers for near-full day lectures. We also have involvement with local retailers and occaisionally equipment manufacturers. Past speakers have included George Lepp, David Muench and Rick Sammon. Typically, we hold our PhotoOp events in March as a springboard to warmer weather photography.
Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot
Late in September or early October each year the club takes its members to Bonneville Salt Flats for a very unusual photographic opportunity. Called the Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot this project draws on the creativity of all participants to produce a huge number of visual delights worthy of great image making. In addition to club photographers, we invite models, dancers, actors, musicians, yoga practitioners and others to be subject in front of our cameras. All are invited to bring clothing and/or props to support their vision for image-making. Some examples include large picture frames, lawn furniture, a bicycle, a canoe, and miscellaneous statuary. We stay past sunset to capture some truly unique images.
