Inspiration is everywhere...

A little bit about Hawke's Bay photographic Society

Our objectives are to promote photography in the Hawkes Bay region and New Zealand, organising workshops, field trips, displays, exhibitions, salons of photographs, seminars, lectures and discussions to educate the community, schools, and members about photography in all its forms.

A brief history of the club

In about 1978 a group of experienced photographers began meeting, and formed the Napier Camera Club.

As the membership gradually dwindled through lack of interest they decided to disband the club.

In 1989, Ron Mc Mullan, one of the previous members, encouraged his wife Sue to take on the task of reviving the club.

After considerable effort the Napier Camera Club was reformed with a formal Committee, membership of around 50, and affiliated to the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ Inc).
