We’re back! Starting this September the monthly meetings will resume at the Amelia Island Art Association. The next meeting is planned for 19, September 2019 at 7 PM and will recur every third Thursday monthly at the same time. If you have an interest in photography, enjoy discussion and camaraderie with fellow local photographers please attend the next meeting! 

For many years the Amelia Island Photography meetings have been held at the Education Center at the Amelia Island Art Association (AIAA). We are entirely grateful for their hospitality and generosity! As we move forward, we pledge to help promote the AIAA as well as help them cover events with volunteer photographers. To the members, I urge you to consider volunteering, as I will. This can help with name recognition and may help promote some of your work! Our point of contact at the AIAA is John Abbott whom I have met and has been extremely helpful. 

I’d like to take a moment and thank Lea Gillardo, Scott and Dawna Moore, as they did a fantastic job over the many years!. The camaraderie and love of photography brought us all together. To Lea, Scott and Dawna, all of your hard work is sincerely appreciated!

Since Scott and Dawna will be traveling extensively and Lea has chosen to step down, I was asked to resume the monthly meetings held at the AIAA complex on 2nd Street, downtown Fernandina. I have big shoes to fill but I feel up to the challenge.

Format of Meetings

Typically for a meeting, we will have an introduction of new members, followed by announcements of events and happenings. In past meetings, we had a particular subject to photograph, the Photo Challenge. Scott was kind enough to have members send their photographs to his e-mail and he presented them to the group. I ask if you have photographs to share with the group as we did before, please e-mail them to: iaapg2019@gmail.com

The bulk of the time will be a presenter for a topic in photography or to share their work. I’d like to see some people share in a shorter presentation like new camera gear, quick technique or something along those lines they think the group may be interested in.

I’m also soliciting volunteers to present for next months topic. If you are interested please contact me.



Currently, there are no dues and you do not need to be a member of the AIAA. We have a reciprocal agreement with the AIAA for promotion and helping out with event photography. So please help in that regard where you can!

Membership is just simply showing up at a planned meeting and have your name added to our mailing list. To have your name added to the mailing list you can sign up using the subscribe button below. I use MailChimp so you will receive any notices for the group from Amelia Island Photography Club. 

I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting in September. If there are any questions feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone (904-556-2945)
