Looking for a place to hang out, pass time in between classes, eat free pizza, make new friends and practice photography?
Then LCC’s Photo Club is the place to be.
“We’ve only had two meetings so far this semester, and I think we are close to 20 members, but I could see us getting closer to 50 over the next couple months,” said Photo Club President Malcolm Forbes.
He discussed his love for the art and his interest in the expanding Photo Club.
“We are really trying to make a connection with the new photography students in Photo 111 and the students in the photography for non-majors, Photo 101, to create networking with first and second-year students,” Forbes added.
Apart from the biweekly meetings where members can discuss their favorite photographs, show recent work and discuss upcoming exhibits, members are invited to join field trips and plan photo shoots on campus.
“My favorite activity so far has been the fundraiser holiday photo shoots,” Forbes said. “You get to meet and talk to lots of LCC students and faculty and explain to them what the Photo Club is doing.”
These photo shoots help raise money for field-trip excursions, pay for pizza at club meetings and fund the graduating photography students’ gallery in Old Town.
Past trips have included the Frederick Meijer gardens, the Detroit Institute of Art and New York.
Shawn Roach, a second-year photography student and new club member, said he is enjoying the club.
“I met some people in the program and want to build a bit of contact base in Lansing,” Roach said.
Interested students are invited to join members every other Wednesday in the Cesar Chavez Center GB 262 from 5 to 6 p.m.
“Students of all majors are welcome to join,” Forbes said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re in the same career field or looking for networking … Anyone who shares a passion and appreciation for the art is welcome to join Photo Club.”
