An active community of hobbyist photographers living in, or connected to, Santa Barbara since 1939

Founded in 1939, the club has a long history of providing photography
enthusiasts a variety of social, instructional, and recreational events.

We have programs three Tuesday evenings every month except
January, August, and December. Our meetings and programs
currently meet via Zoom… and occasionally in person.

The club has members in several states and we welcome anyone
interested in creating or enjoying photography.

Photography exhibitions are held on the first Tuesday of the month. The club provides exhibitions in a variety of categories in print and digitally projected images. Local professional photographers and club members critique the images and provide constructive feedback.


Photography programs are held on the third Tuesday of the month. The subjects range from photographic techniques to digital photography and provide a learning experience as well as visual enjoyment. The speakers are experienced club members and recognized professional photographers.

Education/Training Night

The fourth Tuesday of each month is Education/Training Night. Experienced members and local photographic instructors present a topic relevant to neophyte and experienced photographers alike.

Field Trips

Field trips enable members to join other photographers in photographing interesting sites and viewing photographic exhibits.
