Here are the details:
Paul Blackmore, staff photographer for The Cape Cod Times, will present a program on Outdoor Photography.

He is a self-taught photographer who has won many New England Press Association awards as well as awards from the New England Associated Press News Executives Association.
Paul works as a photojournalist, but has a passion for landscape photography and nightscapes. He teaches photography and runs a wedding photography business. (Check out his website here.) He is a board member and one of the founders of the Photographic Society of Cape Cod.
All local amateur and professional photographers are welcome to come to this meeting as guests of the society.
The society meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Cultural Center.
The society's mission statement: This new photo organization aims to present photography as an art form in a positive and stimulating atmosphere and to foster the artistic growth and development of its members. To facilitate this growth, the activities of the society will concentrate on furthering the education of its members with Photoshop lectures and workshops, photo shoots, and speakers, all free of charge, based upon the needs and interests of the members. A mentor program is planned to help novice photographers with their cameras and photography. Other activities will be planned to illustrate individual and collective achievements, with emphasis on cooperative effort and sharing by all members.
