Message from the Outings Director

Hi OCC members.
I have an opportunity to book Sopher Creek Wildlife rescue for a photo op.
It is $55 each and we would get the following:
  • “Your group (max 10 people per session) is led through our programming animals by a wildlife educator. Through your journey you are able to enter into all of the enclsoures, interact and photograph each of the animals. The length of time is roughly 2 hours long and can include a hike through the trails of the Oak Ridge Moraine if you would like. Our property is in the middle of the forest so lots of natural beauty. The fee is $50 per person with 100% of the proceeds going towards building the facility”
At this point I am not sure of how easy it would be to get no hand of man shots. I am looking for your interest in me booking this outing. Looking for groups of 10. Please email me if you have interest in this outing for either Dec. 1 or 8. I need to know asap.
here is a link to their website
If are interested in attending, please email Randy Nickerson at streetphotosca@gmail.com to let him know. If we have enough interest, we will proceed to confirm the outing.
