Prime Desert Woodland Preserve Cleanup Day, Jan 31 2015


As a follow up to the Martin Luther King Day of Volunteer Service, Carol Moss arranged for LPA members and friends to do further cleanup at the Preserve on Saturday, January 31, 9:00am to 1:00pm. With their buckets, gloves, and trowels, Ron Yagi, Theresa Tighe, Sue Liberto, Marilyn Shackelford, Scott Shackelford, Carol Moss, and Sue Craft were ready to help.

Ranger Lewis guided us to some of the more concentrated spots in need of beautification.

We removed buckets full of glass, metal, and plastics, some of which had been there since before the preserve opened. Ranger Lewis expressed his deep appreciation to all of the volunteers. He offered to accompany small groups of photographers (5) for private, off-trail photo shoots, even before or after hours (with prior arrangement). Contact your field trip chairperson, Chris Wilkins, if you would like help in setting up an LPA field trip.

Thank you Carol Moss for arranging the event, and bringing the donuts.

AV Senior Center Winter Ball, Dec 12 2014


Marilyn Peake
On Friday, December 12, 2014, the Lancaster Photography Association provided photography for the Winter Ball at the AV Senior Center.  The participating photographers were: Rock Myers, Sue Craft, Norma Boggs, Marilyn Peake and Bill Peake.  Lancaster Honda sponsored the event and donated $100 toward photography, which provided a nice boost to LPA’s funds.  The images will be placed on CDs for the AV Senior Center and they in turn will print out copies for the participants.

William Peake
LPA sponsored a booth where attendees had their pictures taken with Santa and also roamed around the party, snapping pictures of attendees.  Both types of photos were deeply appreciated.

The Winter Ball was actually a very special event for both the partygoers and photographers.  The partygoers were an extraordinary group of people!  They danced, posed for photos with Santa, also danced with Santa, competed in contests, and enjoyed dinner and each other’s company immensely.

Senior Center Halloween Party 2014


Rock Myers
Ghouls and witches and mummies… oh my!  Well over 150 people filled the senior center on Halloween and had a grand time.  They danced, played games, had contests, won prizes, and had their photos taken at the LPA Photo Booth.  The photo booth was a big hit!  Again, we used the beautiful canvas backdrop painted by Denis Lust, and provided fun photo props for the seniors.  LPA members Rock Myers, Norma Boggs, Marilyn Peake, Bill Peake and Sue Craft provided photographs for this event as a community service project.  Discs full of photos will be donated to the center, and they will provide prints to attendees.

Photographic Society of America (PSA) Conference 2014 in Albuquerque


David Wilkins
I have wanted to attend the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, and this year’s PSA conference provided the perfect excuse.  The conference itself was held from September 27 through October 3.  There were photo tours before the conference as well as the Balloon Fiesta after.

Nan Carder
The conference started off with the opening ceremony to welcome all the attendees and give out awards and recognition. Nan Carder, EPSA, was recognized for earning the EPSA distinction.  It takes 700 acceptances at PSA recognized exhibitions (documented by division stars) to earn the EPSA distinction.

Here is a list of all the awards for Lancaster Photography Association (LPA) and LPA members given at the conference:

AV Seniors Rock 'n' Roll, Valentines Day 2014


The AV Senior Center was busting at the seams, with a full house of party attendees on Valentine’s Day!  There were decorations, balloons, people dressed up in their holiday attire, hot dogs, root beer floats, and a live band.  It was loud, it was festive, and the dance floor was full.  The Happy Singers performed, as well as the Boogie Woogie Mamas.

The event was organized by volunteers at the senior center.  The LPA’s contribution to the big party was to photograph the event.  Chris Wilkins, Nan Carder, Norma Boggs, and Sue Craft photographed and provided discs full of images to the senior center.

It was easy, it was fun!  It was a great place to practice event photography.  It was low key, low stress, and seniors are greatly appreciative of photos, and very happy to pose.  It’s not every day one has the opportunity to “dress up” and have photos taken with friends.

The LPA would like to continue supporting event photography for the senior center.  Please consider volunteering your time at a future event.  Photos are provided to the senior center, which they share with attendees.  It’s a great opportunity to practice something new, and to give back to the senior center.
