The Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs is comprised of both amateur and professional photographers of diverse talents and backgrounds who all share the common pursuit of enhancing their skills and knowledge. The organization began in February of 1993 and has an annual membership which averages somewhere between 25 and 50 people of all ages from throughout the Susquehanna Valley.
The Shutterbugs meet the fourth Monday of the month at the Lycoming County Historical Society 858 West Fourth Street, Williamsport, PA 17701 at 6:00 P.M.
The meetings are open to the public. Enter using the side door.
The meetings are divided into two parts. The first part is a short business meeting to discuss club business followed by an educational program, which can range from an instructional video to a featured guest speaker.
So, whether you are 16 or 60, shoot with a point and shoot, a digital SLR or even film on a 4x5, come join us! There is something of interest for everyone.
In addition to monthly meetings, the Shutterbugs conduct three (3) yearly photo shows, which are held at the Thomas Taber Museum.
