You are welcome to take photos of events and share them on our website.
If you take lots of pictures, please pick your best ones. If someone else has posted photos ahead of you, browse through them so you can avoid posting similar ones. No need for ten pictures of the same mountain taken at the same time from the same location. This saves storage space, which in turn saves us money.
Group photos are often taken at events and used on our website and Facebook page. We respect that not everyone wants to be part of a group photo for various reasons. If you participate in a group photo and someone is not joining in or is hiding in the back, don’t make an issue of it.
It is important to recognize that not everyone enjoys having their photo taken when they are hiking in the woods. Please be sensitive to this. Focus on nature, friends and hikers you know are comfortable with having their photo taken. Don’t post unflattering photos. And if you would prefer that your picture not be taken, please let the organizer know.
The bottom line is to think about your photos before you post them. Is a particular shot unflattering or potentially embarrassing? Would a little editing make them better? We have many talented photographers in our group who are happy to discuss their tricks and techniques!
