Valley photographers MiMi, Jack, Tim, Mark, and Kathy have photographed landscapes and people from Arizona to the Mediterranean, criss-crossing America, west to east and north to south, exploring national parks, urban landscapes and exploring subjects through portrait-style closeup photography. The quintet of photographers volunteer for a day here at the Arboretum each month, sharing their camera skills and coaching beginners.

The goal is to share a few basic camera lessons while photographing the gardens. These photo walks include time for participants to learn basic camera functions ranging from aperture and exposure to white balance. In addition, participants will be able to ask their specific questions in a supportive small group, each with a friendly camera coach whose goal is to "put the fun in camera functions, and eliminate aspects of photography that can be intimidating to beginners."

These informal once-a-month photography sessions are free with $12.50 adult daily admission (Admission is free to annual members and Arizona State Parks pass-holders). RSVP to MiMi at  [[email protected] ] , or call 480.319.2229. You can also join their Facebook group at:
