Society Info

 

This club is a group of enthusiastic amateur photographers who meet three times monthly, on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Monday evenings, at 7.45pm to approx 10.00pm, in the basement rooms of the Howick Bridge Club (side entrance), at the rear of the Howick Recreation Centre complex, Pakuranga Road, next to the Howick Intermediate School.


We run an interesting programme of practical, competitive and workshop activities, with visits from experienced photographers to comment on and critique the pictures on show.

Visitors are more than welcome - we will do our best to entertain and inform, and there is even supper.  All visitors are welcome to attend up to 3 club meetings and enjoy a meeting with us.  If you are still around after three meetings we will expect a subscription!  If you are keen to join in the photo competitions, and submit your photos for assessment you will need to be a financial member.

If you would like to join our Society, then create a new membership "account", by logging into this website and create a new account.  .  The new account routine will record your details, and when the treasurer has received your subscription, the account will be activated and you will be notified by email.
