Another exceptional NBCC Field Trip to the United States Capitol
Field trips are scheduled throughout the year.
These friendly gatherings allow members to get to know one another better, to share inspiration and photographic knowledge in practice, and to enjoy exceptional photo opportunities.
Most field trips are limited to NBCC members.
Because of security and special access arrangements, many field trips require advance sign-up and some may require NBCC membership identification.
View our on-line photo gallery of field trip images at nbcc.phanfare.com.
The gallery is organized by Club season, starting the current year and going back to 2005.

Member Instructions for Submitting Field Trip Images
NBCC members who attend field trips are encouraged to submit their favorite photographs for the Field Trip Web Gallery.
Up to 6 images per field trip may be submitted by each member attending.
Please save your images as JPEG files, and use the following naming convention:
Member name - Short title.jpg
Tom Sullivan - Water wheel.jpg
Send images as email attachments to the Field Trips Gallery coordinator.
You will receive an email confirmation that your images were received and were able to be opened.
If you do not receive a confirmation in a day or two, please send another email so we can follow up.
The images are not posted as high resolution, so there's no need to send us your full resolution files - try resizing them (e.g., in Photoshop) to 800 pixels or less in each dimension.
If you do not fill in the IPTC metadata fields, supply your contact information along with a caption and other descriptive information in the body of the e-mail when you submit the images.
