Home page, Blog and other things

pearsoncolumn.jpgOver the next few weeks you notice a lot of things going on with your clubs website and I thought I’d take a moment to let you know some of the changes that are coming that will make your website more interactive and useful.Club BlogFirst thing of course is the clubs new blog which is where you’ll find a weekly column by several of the clubs members who are: Jim Pearson, Tom Wortham, Rennan Quijano and Chuck Hinrichs.My column will be about “Photography on the Web” were I’ll talk about sites that I find on the web that I think will be of interest to the club. Tom, Ray and Chuck will do their own thing when it comes to their columns. The columns will start the first week in September with my column, Chuck will be the second week, Tom the third and Ray will be the fourth week of the month. Each column will be highlighted on the clubs main page and link to their full column here in the Blog.If any of the rest of you would like to do something along the same lines all you need to do is post your story here in the blog and I’ll pick different ones weekly to post to the main website so we can keep our home page more current and fresh.As I’m writing this column to get things started all active members are being setup with an account on this blog and I’ll be sending out a email to everyone once it’s been done so you can login and start your own online journal via the blog.Member ProfilesI expect to send out an email to everyone this week with questions for our members profiles page. While it’s not a requirement I really think this will be a great way for our membership to get to know each other and I encourage everyone to try and take part. In a nutshell I’m asking the same set of questions to each member and ask you to provide a photo of yourself and one of your favorite photographs. Details will be posted on the website and emailed to each member that has current email addresses on the website.Club NotesAt Tuesday’s lunch we decide to move forward with a couple of things we’ve been hashing over for awhile now which will be reported/voted on at the September 8th meeting.Club sponsorship of High School Photography ContestWe’re planning High School Photography Contest headed up by Rennan Quijano and myself for the fall. We’ll both be talking with the North and Central representatives for the photography programs and make a recommendation on the date, theme and prizes for this contest.Club ShirtsJesse West is is going to bring to the next meeting a couple options for a club tee/polo type shirt and perhaps some other items.First annual West Kentucky Photography Club Swap meetWe’ve also decided to host our first annual swap meet for photographic and related products. Ray Quijano has graciously offered his parking lot at his office for the swap meet and agreed to help head it up with Ryan Tatum and April Galloway. If you’d like to help with this event please contact one of them. As of right now we’re shooting for the date of November 1st which is the first Saturday in November and a rain date of the following weekend. Details will be at the next meeting.Most of the above items will be voted on at the September meeting so we encourage everyone to try and attend.Also don’t forget that the club’s annual Show and Sale is coming up in October and now is the best time to start getting your prints ready. It’s a great time to showcase your work and perhaps make a little money in the meantime.Another item for October is the Annual Pennyrile Forest State Park’s Fall Photography Weekend. Details for the event is on the clubs homepage and I encourage everyone to check it out and take part. It’s a great outing where you’ll meet and shoot with other folks from the club and all around the tri-state area.Keep clickin…. Jim
