The club meets on a regular basis to share their photos and develop their techniques. Additionally, there are regularly scheduled photo shoots in the Zoo for active club members that often include early access to exhibits that you may not have otherwise. Members contribute their photos to the Zoo for us to use in our marketing materials including print materials, signage and social media. In addition, members serve a vital role in documenting zoo activities, such as special visits and events.
