The Bay Area Photo Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of amateur and professional photographers in the Houston/Galveston Bay Area. The BAPC is a great place:

  1. to learn about photography from fellow members
  2. to learn about upcoming photography events (exhibitions, field trips, workshops)
  3. to display and have your work critiqued
  4. to get and share good sources of photography-related information

The club meets two times a month (except November and December) at Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Church (BAUUC), 17503 El Camino Real, 77058, in the Cockrell Hall.  On the 2nd Tuesday of the month, members bring their work for critique and discussion (also referred as the Honors Program night). The 4th Tuesday of the month will be either a tutorial or a program.  A tutorial will typically consist of  training using editing or specialized software, or a workshop.  A program is typically where guests come to speak to the club on various topics, a member presents a special topic of interest or the club critiques work from an outside organization.

  • When?: 7:00PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (except no 4th Tuesday meeting in November and December)
