AFZ Camera Club

AFZ Camera Club

Our Camera Club is for adult Zoo members with an interest in photography. Members range from amateurs to professionals, there is no required level or skill or equipment. The club meets on a regular basis to share their photos and develop their techniques. Additionally, there are regularly scheduled photo shoots in the Zoo for active club members that often include early access to exhibits that you may not have otherwise. Members contribute their photos to the Zoo for us to use in our marketing materials, including print materials, signage and social media. In addition, members serve a vital role in documenting Zoo activities like special visits and events.

Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on alternating first Mondays and Wednesdays of the month, from September through June, and the photo shoots are typically held on the weekends throughout the year. Club members must attend at least five meetings per year, maintain a Zoo Membership and pay annual dues. Currently, dues are $30 for the first year and $20 each year thereafter.
