Mac Photo Night was born out of a desire to honor the late Denning "Mac" McArthur and to cherish photography. We are a group of photographers, photography lovers, friends and family in and around Ventura County.
If you would like to attend one of our events, it is best to contact any of the charter members first. -Greg
Mac Photo night is not a "Christian" gathering, though David and Erin LaBelle are Christians.
"Denning McArthur, my teacher, often expressed how grateful he was to those that had helped him in his not-so-easy life. It was that gratitude, and a sincere compassion for those who suffered from war or hunger or illiteracy that moved him to give to dozens of charitable organization, even though he was never a wealthy man. During nearly a decade of Monday night meetings in his home, he would ask me to give thanks to God before each meal. It is in honoring that spirit of thanksgiving I feel compelled to carry on that important tradition at Mac PhotoNight." -David LaBelle
