Photo club hosts camera store owner
Special to The R-C
The Oct. 8 meeting was called to order by President Sandy Jonkey. She introduced guest speaker, Craig Moore owner of Action Camera of Reno, 5890 S. Virginia, Bldg. 3, Reno.
Their number is 775 825-2000. Not only do they carry nearly every major brand of camera and related equipment but they interact closely with the Reno community. Action Camera has educational facilities on the premises but they reach out to the community with several annual events. Some of the events include, “Photo gear and Beer,” Milky Way shoots, several community street events, and several others. At these events product reps attend with camera equipment on loan for the day whereby equipment be compared. A great opportunity to make an educated decision on the best camera equipment for your own style. The presentation was opened up for questions and Craig was able to answer a variety of questions about cameras and respective lenses. Craig’s knowledge and casual forthright style was much appreciated.

John stopped by the meeting to discuss the Eagles and Ag event that he heads up. The event is coming up Jan. 23, 2020 (a Thursday). This kickoff of Eagles and Ag on Thursday evening is the beginning of a weekend of activities throughout the weekend. John wanted to personally invite our members to sign up for this event. Eagles and Ag is extremely well attended by the community and is expected to be another success. Club members have sold photos at this event in the past.
