March: Norfolk Photography Club
The Norfolk Photography Club is a place for photography enthusiasts to meet, learn and discuss various photography topics. They get together on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the basement of the Simcoe Library, to talk about photography, and to learn from one another. The club is for anyone who has an interest in photography no matter what kind of camera they possess, from cell phones to full frame cameras. It is the love of photography that binds the group together! There are events planned throughout the year, some of which allow members to take photographs at different locations. If you are interested in joining, you can find more information on the Norfolk Photography Club Facebook group or through the Norfolk Photography Club website.
