Are you a photo enthusiast? Do you enjoy taking flower or garden photos? Do you keep photographic records of your garden? Or do you only occasionally get that old camera out and take a snap? Are you interested in sharing with and learning from other photographers? If any of these apply to you, consider joining the EHS Photography Group.
The EHS Photography Group is an informal group of EHS members primarily interested in flower and garden photography with any type of camera or media (film or digital).
The Photography Group plans several field trips each summer to local garden spots to take photos, learn from each other and practice new techniques. Some members help to record EHS activities and programs, such as the Plant Exchange, EHS City Gardeners' activities, Front Yards in Bloom, the Garden Competition, Open Gardens or even EHS meetings. These photos become part of the EHS photo archives. Some members of the group submit photos to Gardener's Gate, the EHS newsletter. Occasionally, group members meet to review photos taken and swap advice.
There is no obligation to participate in any activities. Group members can choose to participate in any activity they like or skip those they don't like or can't attend, no explanations needed. The only requirement is to be a member in good standing of the EHS.
To participate in the EHS Photography Group, contact the Photography Coordinator.
Photographers who wish to submit their photos for use by the EHS, either as part of the archives, for inclusion in the newsletter or on the Web site can upload their images directly to our Web site. Contact the Photography Coordinator for details and access.
By submitting images to the EHS, the photographer provides the EHS with full usage rights for all images submitted. Copyright remains with the photographer.
The EHS maintains a library of images with a view to making the best images from EHS history available to view in a series of galleries. Galleries are in constant preparation, so check back periodically if you are interested in great flower and garden photos or the activities of the EHS.
