Good dreaming is what leads to good photographs―Wayne Miller

branded by light
Several years ago I helped stage a coup of this club. I was a member of a small revolt inside this club who thought it was not being managed properly and felt it was time for a regime change. Angela Andrieux, who you elected as incoming President, was one of those people. She was very instrumental in making the change possible. She even fired the first round―if you will. I am grateful to be leaving this club in her hands. She is a talented photographer and passionate about this club. I am thankful she stepped up to the task.
However, one of the very first things Terri and I did after successfully taking back the club was to put the club's brand first. And by that, I mean we started building the brand. Darkroomers is a brand and you should all to be aware of it when talking about the club or recognizing us in communication.
Too often I see Darkroomers misspelled, even by club members, and it irks me to no end. This is our club and we deserve to be treated with respect. So help us out by becoming more familiar with the club's properties. If you haven't done so, checkout the club's Style Guide. If you do work with the press then you might want to checkout the club's press kit.

We need your help
The 2020 survey is now out and we need your input on the club. You will see this survey coming at you in several communications so get used to it. The survey is a great way to provide feedback about the club and what you want out of it next year. It takes less than 10 minutes and we care about your responses!
