Attend a “photo walk” at Brazos Bend State Park


HPS members Laszlo Perlaky and Mike Sanderson lead a “photo walk” that takes place each first Saturday of the month at Brazos Bend State Park located 28 miles south of Houston near Needville, Texas. They share their knowledge and experience as they teach art and techniques of nature photography.

Participation is free and it’s a wonderful opportunity to use their vast experience and knowledge at this wonderful natural setting, whether you are a rank beginner or seasoned veteran. The only cost is an entry fee into the park. If you plan to go more than once, consider purchasing a Texas State Parks pass for an annual fee of $60.

If you would like to join them, simply meet them at the Brazos Bend State Park Nature Center (975-553-5122) at the specified time and dates in 2011 as listed below.

First Meeting of 2011

The first meeting of 2011 will take place Tuesday, January 11 beginning 7 p.m. It is our Program Meeting and the first January meeting is always comprised of the year-end photo competition awards announcement, the transition of officers, and a potluck dinner.

The year-end judges are invited to speak about why they felt compelled to select the winners so we can learn from their thought process.

So, bring your appetite, a potluck dish (coordinate with Rachel Burychka) and let’s roll in the 2011 HPS year!

As always, visitors are welcome to participate, but please keep in mind that this meeting is a departure from the typical Program Meeting.
