Photographing the Hudson Valley - An amateur photography group with meet-ups, lessons, shows and more.
Digital World of Photography has been evolving over the past few years. We have grown from a single class at Orange Ulster BOCES in Goshen, New York to a photography club with 4 different classes, monthly meet-ups, monthly meetings and more. Classes are still being taught by Jeff Montanye
in Goshen. Jeff has been teaching Digital Photography classes at adult continuing education learning centers since 2004. We are not a full blown photography club meeting on location throughout the Hudson Valley around Orange county, New York. We have regular monthly meetings at the Newburgh Library Branch in the Newburgh mall. We meet the third Wednesday of each month.
Jeff Montanye has been a serious amateur photographer for the past 25 years. About eight years ago he began teaching a short digital photography class at the Orange-Ulster BOCES
adult education program in Goshen. The class was primarily about operating a digital camera and has grown into four classes at different levels, beginners, intermediate and advanced and now Adobe Photoshop Elements. Since then we have added monthly excursions
around Orange County, New York and the Hudson Valley. We exhibit our photography in art galleries around the Hudson Valley and participate in local town art walks. Many of our photographs have won ribbons in the local fairs. Next year the group will be volunteering in the fairs, helping to setup the exhibits and teaching patrons some basic camera skills. Currently there is no membership fee but we are considering a $25.00/year fee to cover cost of insurance and website fees. Every year we grow and add more adventures to our list.
Our club now has a book that is updated annually. It can be purchased on Amazon (see link to right).
