These six friends are all passionate about fine art photography and taking their photography and printing skills to a higher level. To that end, they have become active in a group of like-minded area photographers who meet monthly as the Focus Group Camera Club. Founded in 1989 by Bob Coles and two other Richmonders, FGCC continues its objectives of developing members’ photographic abilities and sharing their creativity with the public. We hope you enjoy this small sample of our work. Please contact the individual artists if you are interested in purchasing any of their framed or canvas prints.
