I joined the Kapiti Camera Club in 201? as I wanted to develop my photography skills and do different activities. I was told that joining a photography club would help me learn more about photography and enable me to try different type of photography.
I have found the members this club to be very friendly and always willing to assist fellow members in learning more about their camera and setting and how to take good, interesting photos.
While we have a healthy membership approximately 100, our club does retain that 'little' feeling. We have a diverse cross section of member knowledge and experience; have members getting something out of the club and putting something back; having the more experienced members sharing freely their help and knowledge with those of us who have a bit more to learn; have a strong social and fun aspect, within and outside the club; have members who arrange field trips where anything from 6 to 20 people turn up.
On top of the local area field trips that we do throughout the year, we journey off for a 2, 3, or even 4-night photography trip out of our area, meeting up with other camera clubs where we can. We have been known to even go overseas, eg we are planning a trip to the Chatham Islands this year.
It has been a privilege to have been involved with the small dedicated and hard working team that make up our committee and I am grateful to have had that experience, and to see first hand, just how fortunate the Kapiti Camera Club Porirua is to have such a wonderful bunch of talented, selfless and dedicated people working behind the scenes to ensure our club's continued growth and success.
Our club is also proud to be associated with our lovely city, Porirua, and always do what we can, as a club to assist our community
Come and join us!
