Our Photography Expeditions are comprised of photographers interested in exploring the West with their cameras. We visit photography rich destinations, share experiences, and images. But most of all it is about enjoying the camaraderie of being with other creative artists in the field.

Our expeditions are essentially gatherings at various destinations to make photographs. It may be a simple one day localized excursion or a full week of extensive photography. Even on the longer expeditions you may join us for a single day or the entire trip. Whatever works for you. During the longer trips we will be posting our schedule including daily revisions so you can always find us.
While there is no formal training activities on an expedition there is still plenty of opportunities to learn from each other. More importantly, being with other photographers and sharing our experiences is simply more rewarding and fun!

► Oroville Chinese Temple Museum: November 15, 2019
Owned by the City of Oroville, this well preserved Chinese Temple is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a California Landmark. Here, thousands of Daoist, Confucian and Buddhist prospectors from China worshipped side by side for health, happiness, wealth and gold. Although it is a museum, it is still an active temple and used occasionally for worship.
Built in 1863, the Main Temple is a unique survivor of the Chinese community in Oroville during the early years of California statehood. When it was built, there were an estimated 10,000 Chinese located in the Oroville area. This was the religious, business, and social center of the Chinese community until the 1920s and 1930s when difficult economic times and racial strife forced many Chinese residents to migrate out of the area. It is unique in that it serves many eastern religions as “The Temple of Many Deities” (Liet Sheng Kong). The three most common religions that worshiped here were Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. Later separate temples for Confucianism and Buddhism were added.
