As we navigate through these challenging times, we’d like to continue to provide resources and information that could be of use to photographers during the coronavirus pandemic. We will do our best to keep this page updated as things shift and change. If you’d like to suggest additions to the page, please let us know. We would also like to provide an opportunity to gather virtually while we wait for the day that we can get together in person at a happy hour once again…
