Week 1: Santa Monica Outing!

Hello all!

Thanks to everyone we saw at Activities Fair, and welcome to all of our new members! The Photography Club at UCLA is starting out this Fall Quarter with an outing to Santa Monica Beach, so ready your cameras and tripods (if you have them) for Friday, October 5th, when we’ll be meeting up at 3:45 PM at Ackerman Loop (the turnaround entrance to campus located next to Ackerman Union). We’ll be heading down Westwood to catch the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus ($0.50 one-way with BruinCard) so remember to bring some change! Check out some of the awesome photos we took last year.

For all new photographers looking to participate in our Fall quarter introductory digital photography class, sign up here.

Photography in LA:

The Getty Museum opened a new photography exhibition last week on Ray K. Metzker, showcasing his black-and-white photography. The Getty Museum gardens have also reopened for those interested in wandering the grounds. To get to the Getty Museum from campus (the dorms) take the Metro 761 ($1.50 one way) from Sunset/Bellagio towards Pacoima and ride two stops until Getty Center Dr.. Then cross the road and take the tram up to the museum. There is no entry fee for the museum, and the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm.


The Annenberg Space for Photography has extended its “Who Shot Rock and Roll” exhibit until October 21st. It features work by iconic rock-and-roll photographers, including Jean-Paul Goude, Bob Gruen, Ross Halfin, Dennis Hopper, Richard Kern, David LaChapelle, Michael Lavine, Annie Leibovitz, Laura Levine, Gered Mankowitz, Jim Marshall, and more. Admission to the photography space is free, and the hours are Wed-Fri: 11am – 6pm, Sat: 11am – 9:00pm, and Sun: 11am – 6pm.


Los Angeles Fashion Week starts next Friday, October 12, and runs until the 19th. While most events are industry-only, those interested will be able to participate in a few select events, including the Project Ethos and LA Art Walk event next Thursday, including a runway show, gallery exhibition, and live performances. The event is 21+ and tickets can be purchased here.

If you know of other events around LA that would be interesting to your fellow photographers, please tell us about them or post on the Facebook group!
