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 7.30pm 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. Twice a month we conduct a tutorial evening via Zoom - one for B & C Grades and one for A Grade. These sessions consist of critiques, improvements and how to do the improvements of your own photos.

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. We also provide a Zoom link for those who cannot make it along to the club. Please contact the President for the link. You are welcome to attend 3 Zoom meetings before becoming a member.
