North Austin Pfotographic Society is a local photo club. The photo club meets on 1st,  3rd, and 5th Thursdays of each month starting at 7PM.  

Location: United Christian Church at 3500 West Parmer Lane, Austin, TX. 78727 – MAP

1st Thursday meetings are open to guests, but we encourage you to join the club if you regularly visit.  Plus, you then get to enter our competitions and participate in other club activities!  All other club activities are members only unless explicitly stated.

1st Thursday Meetings are live critique photo competitions. The judges are chosen from our advanced competition winners.  Three judges rate each photo, and one of the judges gives an instructive critique.  The judges determine the awards (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, honorable mention) for each level of competition (basic, intermediate, and advanced).  We award and share winning images each and every month (except December).

    7:00-7:15 PM Meet & Greet, Member print exhibition
    7:15-7:30 PM Announcements, Guest introductions, Member print exhibition Q&A
    7:30-9:00 PM Member digital image competition

3rd Thursday Meetings include an educational speaker. Our speakers include local celebrity photographers, experienced academic leaders, and entertaining and interesting creative artists. Occasionally we might have a hands-on workshop with a practical focus on photography education and skills.  We bring in industry pros and experienced instructors to help you improve your skills.

5th Thursday Meetings are social networking potlucks, giving you the opportunity to get to know the members of the club in a casual, unstructured setting. We often have equipment swap meets, member sllide shows and print displays, and lots of yummy snacks.  5th Thursday meetings are members only
