Meetings
The club meetings are held monthly. The goal of the club is to provide a venue with a variety of enjoyable and educational activities, geared for a broad membership base. Meetings consist of an educational presentation, image competitions or commentary, and other activities relating to the art and technique of photography.


Field Trips
Throughout the year the club sponsors field trips as an opportunity for the membership to share their photographic activities together. Frequently the theme of the field trip will coincide with that of a recent meeting program. This allows members to work together sharing techniques or locations introduced during the presentation.


Workshops
Periodical workshops will be provided for club members. A club workshop is a "hands-on" teaching venue. The venue for workshops is frequently outside the meeting setting. This allows an intensive single purpose venue to maximize the learning potential through personal attention.


Affiliated Memberships
Austin Shutterbug Club (ASC) may as its membership elects be an active member of other regional, national or international photographic organizations.


Club Competitions
The ASC conducts photographic competition for its members during the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November . These competitions are designed as an educational opportunity for members. The club competitions are organized along the guidelines of Regional and International organizations to be compatible with future entries of contests sponsored by those organizations.  Go to the
competition section on this Web site to find out more.
