About The ImageMakers:
The ImageMakers, formed in 1996, is a local group of professional and serious amateur photographers, brought together monthly for the past 26 years by our love and passion for photography, and a willingness to share and explore new directions and perspectives. The founders created a venue where they could exchange ideas about the rapidly evolving world of contemporary photography, as well as review and discuss new work in progress by their fellow artists. ImageMakers meets monthly to share work, accepting and encouraging all approaches to producing fine-art photographs. The goal of the ImageMakers is to ensure that photography, as a vital art form, will continue and thrive on the Monterey Peninsula.
We are a diverse group with varied interests ranging from, but not limited to, traditional black-and-white photography and printmaking, infrared, alternative processes and multimedia, hand-colored digital prints, and digital imaging. We value our diversity and support each other’s growth as photographers, through our monthly meetings, mini-workshops, tutorials, and group shoots.
ImageMakers currently consists of 66 members representing the best of the West Coast and the Monterey Peninsula’s tradition of photography, as well as new and alternate approaches to image making. Many of our members have had individual exhibitions in various galleries, museums, and art centers, and have their work in numerous national and international private and public collections. At least ten members have had one or more books published of their photography, fifteen members teach photography classes and workshops, and many have had their work published in various venues. As a group, we have had exhibits in and around Monterey County including the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel; Carl Cherry Center for the Arts, Carmel; Harvey Milk Photo Center, Carmel; Maritime Museum, Monterey; Pacific Grove Art Center, Pacific Grove; Alvarado Gallery, Monterey; Spectrum Gallery in Fresno.
