Howick Photographic Society

We have now moved to a new website for the start of the new year.  You can find us at the following address:

Howick Photographic Society

Looking forward to seeing you there.

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.
