ABC Photo Society

A Central Pennsylvania Camera Club

Call for Images

Attention club members that attended the East Broadtop Rail Road (EBTRR) shoot on March 8th 2014.

We are going to create  a slide show of images from the EBTRR shoot to be shown at the May 4th club banquet. Please provide up to 10 of your images with your © copyright on them. Get them to Bill Baird no later than March 16th. Put them on a thumb drive or CD and bring them to a meeting or send them via Dropbox. Thanks you!

*** New Meeting Location! ***

With the start of 2015, the club is moving to a new location. We will be holding our meetings at the new Hollidaysburg Area Public Library. It is a fantastic new building with amenities that will benefit us greatly. The community room is has a wonderful audio/video setup that we're sure to love.

Meetings days and times will remain the same. Meetings take place on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 7:15pm. (With some exceptions for holidays).

The Library's address is:
1 Furnace Rd
Hollidaysburg, PA 16648 

                    Monday December 15th at the YMCA

This is a planning meeting. We will elect next year's officers. And most importantly we will be discussing the possibility of the club moving the meeting place to the new Hollidaysburg Library. This will require changing the meeting dates also. So please attend this meeting because we need your input. It is vital to a healthy club.

                The Winners of the 2014 Projected Image Competition

Thank you Sally Becker!

Dave and Eric will show us the ins and outs of capturing

 Lakes, Streams, Waterfalls, Reflections, etc. 

This is a meeting you should not miss.


              Monday October 6th - “Favorite Photographer Night”


Members will tell us a little or a lot about their favorite photographer. Whether it's an old-school master or a current pro, show us some work that we can use for inspiration.  It doesn't have to be anything fancy.  Take 5 or 10 minutes for a presentation.


I will bring a Wi-Fi hotspot so we will have access to the internet.


                     Monday September 22nd Members Choice

It is Members Choice night. Show us what you have been shooting. Gather 25 or 26 images together as a slide show (alphabet soup?) or individual files and get them to Bill Baird. You can send them to Bill using Dropbox. It is free and safe. Or bring them to the meeting early on a thumb drive or CD.

We are back at the YMCA beginning with this meeting.

                          Monday August 18th Photowalk

Our Photowalk will be at The Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site (Lemon House). There will be some antique Automobiles for us to shoot in the parking lot, weather permitting. The cars will arrive around 6:30 PM so we should arrive before that time.  If it rains, they will not bring the cars out and this event will be canceled (and maybe rescheduled).


The park is located just off U.S. Route 22 approximately

12 miles west of Altoona and 10 miles east of Ebensburg.

Take the Gallitzin Exit and turn right, following the signs. .
