Who are we?

  • We are an informal group of photographers who formed at the Phoenix Park Neighbourhood House in 2010.
  • Some of us have participated in photography classes the Neighbourhood House.
  • We are from various age groups and backgrounds but we all enjoy an interest in photography.

When do we get together?

  • We meet at the Phoenix Park Neighbourhood house.
  • We try to arrange at least one workshop or excursion between meetings.
  • Excursions may be to take photographs, visit galleries and exhibitions or maybe in-house workshops.

Is there any cost?

  • The Neighbourhood House asks that you complete an enrolment form with some basic details and there is an annual administration fee payable at the beginning of each year or when you first join.  We do ask for a $4 donation at each monthly meeting which goes to the Neighbourhood House to help with tea, coffee and electricity.  (Biscuits and cake are strictly BYO!)

Who can join?

  • We are open to all skill levels from beginner to advanced.
  • We are open to equipment types from simple “point and shoot” models to SLR cameras.
  • Our emphasis is on digital photography – film cameras are welcome but we have no darkroom facilities.

What are our aims?

  • To improve our photography.
  • To share our knowledge and to learn from others.
  • To participate in workshops and photo sessions with other like-minded people.
  • To discuss and appreciate photographic work from the past and present.
  • To discuss and critique our own work.
