What is a Photo -Trek?

Photo-Trek events are put on by the Orlando Camera Club to raise money and provide unique location photographic opportunities.  Currently Photo-Trek funds the club’s scholarship commitment to the University of Central Florida.   We have awarded four $500 scholarships each of the past three years.

Past Photo-Trek Events

How does Photo -Trek  work?

Each event is limited to 18 photographers.  There are at least three models and three “Host Photographers”.   One model and one Host work as a team.  The 18 participants are divided into three groups of six photographers each.  There are three locations at the venue and the participants rotate from one location to another.  This gives everyone a chance to photograph each model.  The models also move to give different looks in different locations.  The models also change once during the event so you get six different looks.  The role of the Host Photographer is to allocate time for each participant to photograph each model.  Others in the group are encouraged to wait until it’s their time with the model.  The event is usually over in about three hours.

Where are Photo-Trek events held?

The last event was held in December at The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando.  It was one of our most successful events. Others have been help at different interesting venues around the Orlando area.  We have been at The Mennello Museum of American Art, Cocoa Beach and Ft. Christmas.   All these locations have been sold out.

What’s Next?

Photo-Trek Cosplay will be at the Maitland Museum of Art in Maitland,  Florida.  It will feature Wonder Women, Princess Leia and other famous renditions of your favorite characters.  All Photo -Trek models are very experienced and know how to pose and take direction.  This will be a wonderful event.

After Photo-Trek Cosplay will be Photo-Trek at the beach. This is an annual event held at sunrise.
