We are a group of Enthusiasts sharing a common interest in 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 Club has several experienced PSNZ Panel Judges, plus others who consistently judge for other clubs.
Howick Camera Club has been in existance for more than 55 years, and is affilated to the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ).
We meet at 7.30pm every Monday (excluding the 2nd Monday in each Month) from February to November inclusive in the basement of the Howick Contact Bridge Club.
