PHOTO CONTEST FOR BEAUFORT COUNTY 2016 LAND PRESERVATION CALENDAR is now accepting entries through September 8, 2015.  The theme is "Ripple Effects: Wetlands and Waterways, Creeks and Critters."  In recent years, several members have seen their entries selected for the calendar, and just looking back on the quality of our theme-related photos recently exhibited at Lemon Island, we should already have a head start for participating in this  contest.  The main requirement is that the photos must have been taken in Beaufort County.  For more information and the application form, go to the Beaufort County website and follow the applicable links.  Also, be alert for announcements on field trips to some of the more promising sites.

MEETINGS: With the summer recess upon us, our next membership meeting won't be until Tuesday, September 8, 7:00pm, at Hidden Cypress.  The competition theme will be "Portraits" (speaker TBA). Participants are reminded of the mandatory requirement to submit their image files in advance to  See "Competition Guidelines" for complete requirements. 

EDUCATION:  The fall schedule of studio classes will be published in late August.  Of course, anyone is encouraged to suggest a new class and/or volunteer to teach it.  Several current instructors have found the best way to become more familiar with a subject is to teach it.  Think about it, and contact Education Director Art Greene for more information or to volunteer.

INTERESTED IN MEMBERSHIP?  The cost is $20 for the first member and $10 for the second member of the same household.  Any Sun City resident who is considering membership in PCSCHH is invited to learn more about the club; visit the studio in the Yemassee Craft Center or come as a guest to the September 8th meeting, then join at the Club Fair in October and be paid up through 2016.  Check the calendar link below to see when the studio will be open with a monitor on duty.

FIELD TRIPS: Now online: Photos from Field Trips.  Thanks to Pat Roche, John Burrack and Hubbs Grimm for their initiative to provide a website featuring photos taken on field trips our members.  Click here to see what has already been posted and how to get involved.

KEEPING IN TOUCH: Has your e-mail address changed?  If the Club doesn't have your current address, you'll miss out on e-mail updates, the President's messages and other timely notices.  Send an e-mail to Tom Lehrer to update your information. 

MEMBER PHOTOS: Click here to view John Burrack's Shutterfly page featuring terrific photos from the Hummingbird and Butterfly Garden.  This is a Sun City attraction well worth visiting.

HHI LIBRARY EXHIBIT.​The PCSCHH exhibit at Hilton Head Island Library opened Monday June 15, and will run through Saturday July 25, 2015. This has historically been a very good show for the club and we are expecting a large turnout of locals and summer visitors to view the beautiful photos (and possibly purchase those offered for sale). The library's redesigned gallery area looks great, and we are all looking forward to a wonderful and successful show this summer, thanks to all the participants and the efforts of Jim Wilson and his team.  The library is on Beach City road, just before the HHI Hospital entrance.  More photos.




STUDIO EXHIBIT: An exhibit "Making an Impression" is now open for viewing at the studio. Check the calendar for those times when the studio is not scheduled for classes or meetings and have a look.

TRI-CLUB COMPETITION. Thanks to all who participated in the 8th annual competition between the Beaufort, Hilton Head and Sun City photography clubs, and a special thanks to the volunteers for their efforts that enabled our club to successfully serve as the host.  Congratulations to the PCSCHH winning photographers: Russell Schivley, Russell King, Art Greene, Richard Snell, Rich Matheny, Jeannine Rowe, Rick Donnelly, Kate Crowley, Rich de Asla, Al Sturdevant, Bob Zier and Corky Burt.  Click here to view their photos.  Photos of the May 27th event, provided by Corky Burt, are shown below.
