Photo Union was created to bring monthly discussions, assignments and review to help stimulate, guide and inspire photographers of all levels.
Using the underlying principles that define and guide great photography, participants will be encouraged to concept and explore ideas, turning the abstract into the concrete through thought provoking assignments.
Photo Union's goal is to elicit the more conceptual aspects of photography, helping the photographer to define their personal and creative vision, while refining their unique photographic voice.
Those new to photography will find that seeing the world through an artist’s eye not only benefits their work, but in turn their being. More established photographers will appreciate the monthly challenges and lively dialogue.
Photo Union encourages practicing the photographic arts to execute new work each month in response to a given assignment.
Photo Union is about thinking, learning, sharing and growing. It’s about finding your voice, finding inspiration, and limitless exploration of the possible, improbable and impossible.
Photo Union is an accepting and supportive league built on our common love of photography and believes there is an artist in each of us.

Assignment for December Meeting:
Our theme for November was The Dark/Darkness. I was delighted and thrilled how each of you found yourself, and your voice, within it. There were many thought-provoking, dialog and narrative inducing, and truly stunning images. I was utterly impressed with your journey into this topic, and your generosity in sharing with us. I’d like to see it all again! And remind you here that we do have a facebook page which you are welcome and encouraged to post upon. If you’ve not joined the page, send me a message and I will add you promptly.
Our assignment for December is one that is inspiring to me personally, and a conceptual basis for much of my favorite work. I’m calling it “The Beautiful Mundane”. As artists, we are able to use our creative insight to lend joy, beauty, notice, knowledge, truth, deception, individuality or universality to any subject we encounter...the ones we seek out, the ones that induce wonder in us...and the simple, the ordinary, and the typically overlooked and underappreciated. For December, I’d like you to create work to expose and celebrate that which may be so easily missed, or dismissed, but which proved notable to you, and as such, the rest of us.
Thanks gang! Happy shooting and see you soon.
