UCD Staff Photography Club

Welcome to the home of the UCD Staff Photography Club. The Club aims to provide a relaxed and welcoming setting for staff to learn more about photography, share their photos and develop their skills. Membership is open to any staff member with an interest in photography, regardless of skill level. You won't need a 'fancy' camera and we'll try as much as possible to tailor monthly challenges to camerphone users as well as SLR owners.

Meeting format

The Club meets once a month, at lunchtime (1-2pm) on a Wednesday. As we are in the early stages of the Club, we don't have a regular home so if you'd like to keep up do date on times and locations of meetings then join our email list by contacting

Generally the meetings include discussions, an activity and a review of the month's challenge.
