Begun in 2009, Maine Traditional Film Photographers is a group joined together through mutual interest in recording images using black and white negatives, color film and slides. The group is open to all film photographers. Several members use large format (view) cameras; others prefer medium format or 35 mm photography. We meet the third Thursday of each month at the Harlow to share technical and artistic skills. We also organize occasional field trips to photography exhibits including shows at Colby, Bates, Bowdoin College and the Portland Museum of Art. We offer spring and summer photo shoots to coastal and inland Maine sites, and show our film-based work in shows at Augusta, Hallowell and other locations. Speakers at our Third-Thursday meetings have included documentary photographers and glass plate practitioners, among others. We are not a club and do not offer contests or jurying.
