Founded in 1956 by a group of avid photographers who wanted to share their work and their skills.
While our founding members have moved on, we continue their legacy.


Our membership draws from Tacoma WA and the surrounding area. We are an award-winning club with award-winning photographers who like nothing better than to get out and shoot photos. We all agree that we learn more and learn it better when we are teaching and sharing.
