We established The Woodlands Camera Club in 2006 to address the needs of amateur photographers from our area who simply wanted to take better pictures. To our pleasant surprise, the club has attracted photographers of every level. While it is still our main purpose to serve the less experienced "picture-takers", a significant number of very advanced amateurs are also heavily involved with the club.

The meetings consist of a very short "business" session, a 30- to 45-minute presentation by a guest speaker, and conclude with a "Share & Learn” session during which club members share their photographs and interests with others. The meetings are intended as an entertaining learning experience. We have no competitive photo contests.

We also have four Special Interest Groups (SIGs) which address learning your camera equipment, using your camera, composition, and post processing on the computer. Those groups, plus field trips and workshops, are all designed to help club members become great friends through the sharing of a common interest!
