Howick Photographic Society
We are a group of enthusiasts sharing a common interest in the art of photography. We have members at all stages in photography, from absolute beginners to professionals.
The more experienced members love helping our less experienced members understand and further improve their photography.
Our Society has several experienced PSNZ Panel Judges, plus others who consistently judge for other clubs.
Howick Photographic Society has been in existance for more than 60 years, and is affilated to the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ).
We meet at 7.30pm every Monday (excluding the 2nd Monday of each Month) from February to November inclusive in the basement of the Howick Bridge Club.
