North American Nature Photography Association
NANPA is Launching Special Interest Groups
One of the great things about being part of NANPA is the chance to network with your photography peers. NANPA is building on this benefit by launching a new networking opportunity for you.
NANPA announces the launch of eight Special Interest Groups (SIGs) within the NANPA membership. These include:
- Gardens and flowers
- Fine art
We are in the formation stage of the process. Once we determine how many people are interested in each SIG, we can start dedicated listservs or discussion forums, social networking, meetings at NANPA events, opportunities to contribute to the event programs, and more. The possibilities are wide and varied. But we can't start until we know if you are interested.
Join as many as you want. Simply fill out the online form and we will take it from there. You may also sign up for a SIG through the NANPA Store on the website. There is no cost. Being part of a SIG will not mpact your dues. The only stipulation is that you must be a NANPA member to participate.
We are excited to move forward on this new networking benefit. Please indicate your interest by November 19 so we can get the ball rolling.
Click here to get started.
NANPA promotes the art and science of nature photography as a medium of communication, nature appreciation, and environmental protection; provides education and inspiration, gathers and disseminates information, and develops standards for all persons interested in the field of nature photography; and fosters professionalism and ethical conduct in all aspects of our endeavors and especially encourages responsible photography in the wild.

May Farm Visit
Thursday, May 16 - 8am-12pm
Saturday, May 18 - 8am-12pm
Lake Winchester Vineyard - 51010 Willow Point Rd. Clarksburg, CA 95612
Dear Artists and Art Supporters,
Lake Winchester Vineyard is a dream come true for owners Tim and Linda Waits. When they purchased the 340 acre property in 2004 it was an undeveloped piece of ag land - which happened to sit on a peaceful lakefront. Nine years later it is a thriving property with their lakeside dream home, barn, and English walking garden; Petit Sirah and Pinot Noir grape vineyards which they sell to local wineries and use for their own private label; and alfalfa and safflower fields. The lake is lined with valley oaks and native grasses and if you are lucky you may see an egret or heron who are frequent visitors. You are free to take the walking path along the lake or you can set up on their private lawn in front of the house. Tim and Linda welcome you to experience the peace & quiet of Lake Winchester Vineyard.
Also happening on Saturday, May 18 8:30am - 12pm at Lake Winchester...
