Main Program:

Brady Cabe Shooting Night Images on the Central Coast
Guild Hall

Our March 8 meeting will feature Brady Cabe speaking about shooting night images on the Central Coast. He’ll show an array of his spectacular photographs and provide behind-the-scene explanations of how the images were captured. 

Brady is a nature and landscape photographer based in Grover Beach. He is a self-proclaimed bird nerd, a seal whisperer, a half marathon finisher, poker shark, Milky Way fanatic, and lover of chocolate. 

Brady describes his inspiration for photography by saying: “As I explore this amazing planet, I’m always astounded by the complexity and variety to be found. The nature and landscapes of San Luis Obispo County, the state of California, and beyond provide all the inspiration I need. If I’m not sure where to take pictures, I just hit the road and see where it takes me - usually with my family in tow. I love to be outdoors, with my feet and tripod in the water, capturing a sunset or the Milky Way late into the night.” 

His passion for photography has grown into a desire to share with others through his workshops on Astrophotography, Sunset, and Wildlife photography. For Brady, teaching has been an unforeseen blessing along his photography journey, as it causes him to reverse engineer everything he does. This process guides his curriculum into simplified, step-by-step processes that make photography accessible for every skill level.


We are always looking for programs to present at our monthly meeting. If you have a topic related to photography that you’d like to present, please contact Rob Muller.

Show and Tell

Every meeting showcases a Main Program and a
Field Trip Show featuring photos taken by our members at a recent outing. "Show and Tell" follows, where each member may bring up to 3 images on the subject of our Monthly Challenge (your interpretation!) or any subject, whether to ask for some ideas on how to make them better or just to show us what you've been up to.

  • March Photo Challenge: Luck of the Draw


Submissions For "Field Trip Shows" & "Show and Tell"

Digital images (JPGs only) must be submitted on a CD or Flash Drive clearly marked with your name. Images must be in the sRGB color space and sized to at least 1024x768 pixels and no larger than 1800 pixels on the longest side of the image. Use your name as the first part of the file name. An example of naming your image files would be as follows: if your name is Mary Smith, then you would name your files: marysmith1.jpg, marysmith2.jpg, etc. For more assistance, see our tutorial on How to Prepare Digital Images for Projection.

People attending a Club field trip may submit up to 15 images to the field trip coordinator at the next meeting after the trip (unless a different number is specifically requested). Show and Tell images should be provided to the Equipment Chair at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the General Meeting in which they'll be shown.

Each month, a SLOCC member volunteers to put the Field Trip show together and also selects an image from the show to be awarded "Image of the Month." The Field Trip Show is presented one month after the images are turned in. It will be 10-15 minutes in length and every submitter will be included. The winning "Image of the Month" is featured on the Club Website (hint: look in the top left corner!).

Volunteer to put a Field Trip Show together! It's fun, and other Club members will help you.
