Thank You to Calagaz Photo
The Wide Angle Photo Club is very fortunate to have a great relationship with Calagaz Photo. As you saw at our recent meeting, Rob and the gang at Calagaz bring great raffle items and do an amazing job educating us about the new photographic equipment that is available. We can thank them by shopping there.

Calagaz has a great collection of new and used cameras, lenses and other great photo tools. They also do a great job printing your photos so thank Rob and Calagaz by starting your Holiday shopping at their Pensacola or Mobile stores.

Don't forget that Tamron has donated 2 lenses that are available at Calagaz to borrow for 1 week for free! These are the 28-300 AF Zoom lenses, one with the Nikon mount and one with the Canon mount. WOW. Members of WAPC can borrow an amazing new lens for one week at no cost! Thanks again to Calagaz.

WAPC Donation to ARC Gateway

Each year the Wide Angle Photo Club of Pensacola makes a donation of our proceeds from our annual show, the Power of Photography®, to ARC Gateway.

This year our donation was $5,000, bringing our ten year total to nearly $50,000.  These donations are brought about by the hard work of the POP Committee and the members of WAPC.
