My name is Gail M Dobbins, I have been with the club since February 2017. I found out about the club at Rochdale Day 2016. SEQCC had a booth setup. And I was doing freelance work for the community. I walked over they gave a good conversation, and it’s all you wrote after that day!!! The equipment I started with was a FUJIFILM camera. And numerous point and shoot digitalis. But the work I put out everyone appreciated because I captured moments that still today they use in print. The TRUE GROWTH I experience with the SEQCC is knowing the EYE CAN CAPTURE. But with the amount of work I was doing. I needed a camera to help me capture photos. With that being said my 1st year I brought a NIKON D7500. LOVE IT!!! And the past year NIKON Z6!! And I I AM LOVING IT! I do a lot of freelance work within the COMMUNITY and FOUNDATIONS. For the five boroughs. Also my family and I are involved in PROGRAMS/FOUNDATION/EVENTS for the 5 boroughs for over 10yrs. A TRUE PASSION!!
I’m now on the EXECUTIVE BOARD in SEQCC as the CLUB TREASURER and also the HOSPITALITY.
I can truly say, everyone I met and everything I have learned and STILL LEARNING.
Is and has totally been appreciated.
