Our Mission

The Mariposa Photo Club was established in February of 1995 as a community-based, non-profit group of adults to promote interest and skills in photography.  We are a group of professional and amateur photographers living in an area teeming with photographic opportunities (near Yosemite National Park). 

Membership in the MPC is open to anyone having an interest in photography regardless of skill level. The club offers members an opportunity to lean more about their hbby or craft and to share individual photographic knowledge or experiences with other members.

Some of the club highlights are:

  • We offer monthly demos of specific techniques, software programs, or photography basics.
  • We hold field trips that offer the chance to photograph subjects of interest and to learn more about your equipment and techniques.
  • There are monthly “assignments” to photograph a particular subject or to use a specific technique and then we share those photographs and critique them with other members.
