Club Information

The West Rand Photographic Club is one of the friendliest there is, and we have members who range between beginners with basic cameras to professionals with full studio equipment. We are all able to learn something from each other, and no-one needs to feel inferior for not having much experience, or for using budget equipment. At our club we are all united by a passion for photography.

The club organises technical workshops where new skills are taught and practised, and we have frequent outings to places or events that present good photo opportunities.

Formal Meetings
We have two meetings a month: We have a formal meeting once a month on the fourth Tuesday. At these meetings members enter images to be critiqued by the visiting judges, and from this process we all learn what makes a good picture, and get inspiration from seeing each other's work. Based on points scored, members are promoted through various grades from beginner to master. 

Social Meetings
We also have an informal social meeting once a month on every second Tuesday. No images are judged and the accent is on an open, all-inclusive discussion on anything and everything to do with photography. We usually have a practical workshop or hands-on demonstration of a photo technique. It's your opportunity to ask absolutely anything about your equipment or any other topic on which you need help. We hold these meetings at the Florida Canoe Club at Florida Lake where we have secure parking, a cash bar and meals.

Venue: We meet at the Florida Lake Canoe Club (formerly the Florida Yacht Club) at Florida Lake.
: 18h30 for 19h00 
Venue: Florida Lake Canoe Club, Eisteddfod Road, Florida Lake, Roodepoort, West Rand.
