  1. Thank you for asking. We ALWAYS meet on the second Thursday of each month. Your question prompted me to see a weakness in our menu item “Free Meetings” (if you clicked directly on the only item below it (announcements and archives) you missed the information available if you had clicked just on the top menu words themselves. so.. I added an “About DPI-SIG Meetings” below the top menu item “Free Meetings”
    See the menu now. Thanks again for your question.

  2. Attended Gordan Campbell’s photography presentation at Regional Library last week. Jon Kennedy invited me to your Club meeting when we met today while I was shooting some photos. Just enjoyed your website and appreciated their winning photographs. I plan to attend your meeting this Thursday.
    Thanks, Bonnie Planck

  3. Our meetings are general in nature without specific one on one time. However members often exchange ideas before the meetings and at breaktime. We do have “roundtables’ where a small group of members up to 10 get together to discuss topics they bring to the rountable. As a member you could go to them and might pick up good info. We do not have specific workshops at this time.

  4. I am curious to how your meetings run. I recently upgraded my DSLR and am in need of help figuring out a better workflow. Do you guys do one-on-one time at the meetings or take time to go over different areas to the whole group? Outside of the meetings, once a member, do you have workshops?

  5. You need nothing to attend our meetings. Indeed please come as you are so to speak.

  6. To Rabbit:

    Sorry, for the delayed response,

    The DPI-SIG currently has no information about carpooling or ride-sharing.
    This appears to be the first time this has come up.

    Be glad to have you at our free meetings if you can make your own arrangements!

    Kind Regards,

    DPI-SIG

  7. I just learned about DPI-SIG a few days ago. I finally have a chance to check it out, but I was curious if you guys know of anyone that does carpooling or ride-sharing? I’m currently living at the St. Matthew’s House, but I’d really like to get into this group. There just aren’t any buses that run that late (makes me miss home, ha!)

  8. Sundrish,
    Thank you for your interest and inquiry. You can join at any of our monthly meetings which are open to the public. By attending one you will get an excellent opportunity to see what the club has to offer and join immediately if you wish. Please come. We’d be glad to have you there!
    Kind Regards
    Bill for Sonny and Bill, Founders of DPI-SIG

  9. I have recently moved to Naples and very interested in learning photography skills. I want to join DPI-SIG of Naples Florida. Please let me know how and when I can join this group.

    Thanks,
    Sundrish
