The F-Stop Group is a community of photographers that meet on a monthly basis, September through June, and are dedicated to critiquing and supporting each other's work. The mission of the F-Stop Group is to promote aesthetic and technical growth in each person's photography. Tom Arndt hosts the group.

In this 2021 season Mpls Photo Center continues its support for the F-Stop Group, (now in its 14th year) sponsoring and hosting the meetings at MPC the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. except for the months of July and August. 

To avoid confusion, we will compile a monthly exhibitor list and will publish the list on the MPC website as we go, so you can see who is coming up and if there are available spots.  All spots are on a first come basis so send an email withthe date you want to share your work to:

July 20


Group benefits include:
Peer review and critique

At each monthly meeting, three presenters show their work. The work should be made in the last year and each presenter may show only once per year. The work should be shown in print form, and in print, color or black and white. Critiques last approximately 15 minutes. The presentation begins as the presenter introduces themselves and shares a information about the work. We ask that you keep it brief so there is ample opportunity for conversation. Tom Arndt provides his insight into the work and is part of the critique process. All F•Stop members are asked to respect each other in the critique process by offering ideas that help better realize the photographer's intent. Not all FStop members are at the same level of accomplishment, but everyone can benefit from thoughtful comments. This idea creates an atmosphere that is different from meeting to meeting.

If you would like to show your work at the next  meeting, you may sign up by emailing, please tell us the date you would like.
Please bring prints.

Along with critique, there may be guest speakers or videos as part of the meeting. The heart and soul of The F•Stop Group is community. For more information on the F•Stop group or to join, please email:
