About the Club

Founded in 1935 our club has a long history of providing a place for anyone with the passion for the art of photography to come and meet others who share the same passion.  Beginners and professionals, and all in between, find the comaraderie and the willingness of members to share tips and help each to be a major reason to belong and get involved.

Whether it be a formal program, a tech tip talk, at an outing, at the convivial after meeting dinner at a local restaurant, or chatting at the meetings, it is hard not to earn something new, which you can later try out for yourself.

This page is designed to take you on a tour through all of the club happenings; from our bi-monthly club meetings, to our competitions and even some of our informal gatherings, all of the information is here at your fingertips.  Start scrolling to learn all that you need to know!
