Welcome to the Northland Photography Club!

The Northland Photography Club was formed in 1969. The club meets at Millennium Martial Arts Academy, 6513 N Cosby Ave Kansas City, MO 64151.

The love of photography brings together a diverse membership that varies greatly in age, interests, and levels of expertise.

The club provides an excellent source of information and support for the beginner as well as the expert through formal presentations and the informal exchange of ideas and techniques.

While guests are welcome at our meetings, membership in the club entitles you to participate in all club activities including, but not limited to, those outlined in the next section.

Annual membership is $15.00 for one person, or $25.00 for a family. We do not prorate for dues paid during the year. Membership dues must be accompanied by our Membership Form and submitted to the club Treasurer. Our Club year begins on January 1st each year.

We have print competitions at every monthly meeting. The competitions are based on a monthly theme. Refer to the Meetings page for the competition rules and the current year's monthly themes.

During the December meeting, the club members vote on their favorite photos of the year. The top three photos are awarded prizes and the winning photo is displayed on the front page of this site the following year.

Guest Speakers:

Some meetings will have a guest speaker on a topic of general photographic interest. How-to, Hands-on Demonstrations: Members and guest speakers often give demonstrations on a variety of software and photographic techniques.

Slide Shows by Members:

Members love to share their photos and they are often presented in slideshows during the meetings three. 3 pictures are usually submitted using a link posted on our Facebook website. I also ask that pictures be of a low resolution so my download is not 1 hr. per picture, Marty....

The club members take field trips around the Kansas City area and beyond. The field trips range in duration from a couple of hours to several days. Many impromptu photo walks are generated through our Facebook group.
