Photo Union League with Michael Crouser


Next Photo Union Meeting  
TUESDAY March 10, 2020 at 6:30 pm.

Non- Members: $20.00 per session    

MPC Members: FREE with Membership




Join photographer Michael Crouser for discussions, assignments,and a review of work, to help stimulate, guide and inspire photographers of all levels.  Photo Union is about finding your voice, an inspiration, and limitless exploration of the possible, improbable and impossible. 

Recognizing that the mind is an important as they eye, 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 participants shoot an assignment each month, and present photographic prints at the next meeting.)  There is a group review and critique, and they then receive the next assignment.
While Photo Union, like aesthetics itself, examines formal technique such as composition, value and hue, our 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.
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. 

Note all meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month: 6:30 - 9:00  Please consult the Master MPC schedule/calendar. 

Our Photo Union leader.

Michael Crouser is the leader of Photo Union--and we could not be more fortunate. Michael is an accomplished photographic artist, author, publisher, and educator--and has a long history at MPC in all those capacities. He comes to this with a new perspective, experiences, thought processes, challenges, and approach to critiques. I am equally happy for our Photo Union loyalists--and new photographer friends--to engage with Michael Crouser in their photographic learnings.  Learn about Michael's 2017 book here:;_ylt=AwrB4Rrh4pVb60cAJK0PxQt.?p=michael+crouser&fr=yhs-iry-fullyhosted_011&fr2=piv-web&hspart=iry&hsimp=yhs-fullyhosted_011&type=mcx_mdmac_18_34_ssg03#id=7&vid=1ecb21f5bf13853dd302f538022205db&action=view
