LA Photo Galleries
Whether the SCCC outing is an urban walk, a wildflower hike in the Santa Monica mountains, a Mojave desert car camp to observe first and last light, or a Sierra backpack for total wilderness immersion, it will be scouted and lead by two or more experienced photographers. Many of our trips are recurring outings to favorite, proven locations, but we also like to explore new areas. Sometimes we invite local naturalists and take advantage of other resources.
Our leaders have completed the Sierra Club's leadership training course with first aid and CPR training. They have successfully completed provisional outings under the observation of qualified leaders. They are backed by years of personal experience and SCCC history. SCCC leaders want to make each outing the best possible with great photos at the end to prove it.
Our hikes and backpacks are typically "photo-paced" allowing participants ample opportunity to capture the best images. We try to be at the right locatons in the right light. Our camping trips usually include a social hour around snacks, dessert or a campfire to swap stories and photo ideas. We often follow the outing with a reunion to look at photos.
Group-size is limited to a manageable number of photographers and friends. We evaluate each participant for fitness relative to the level of strength and stamina required by the outing so that, in the end, we can report "a good time was had by all."

August 2013 - BRISTLECONE PINES Car Camp
Peter Mason and Grant Rigby are working on plans for a summer trip to the Bristlecone Pine Forest. We would like to be there when the monsoon moisture is coming up from the south so we get some nice clouds for our images. There would also be a chance for a full or near full moon. If you are interested send Grant (email@example.com) your email address and we will keep you updated on our plans.
