It was one year ago today...

Happy birthday East Bay Photo Collective! Today is the anniversary of our very first organizational meeting. What started as a a small informal group of scruffy photo bums has turned into...well, a big informal group of scruffy photo bums.  Seriously, as a community we have made great strides in this first year:

* Consistently hosted three photo community events each month.
* Set up a corporation and applied for non-profit status.
* Elected a board of directors
* Launched a web site, newsletter, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter feeds
* Offered a slate of summer workshops
* Developed a design and budget for our East Bay Photo Center 
* Grown our Facebook community to over 400 members!

This year will be bigger still! It will be all hands on deck as we raise money to open the East Bay Photo Center, and launch programs to serve our community with our photo expertise.

This year has been a real pleasure for me. I've made many new friends, learned lots of new photography, and, best of all, I've had the joy of being part of this wonderful, warm, growing community.

Thank you all! Here's to our coming year!

Photographically yours,

p.s. The image above is from our very first meeting, which was a barbecue and photogram party. Let's do that again!  Here is a link to the invitation to that very first meeting.
