WELCOME TO THE EYES OF HAWAII PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB!
We are a laid back, relaxed club whose members are there to not only share their love of photography but also to socialize with other like minded people. Our meetings are held in Ohia 118 on the campus of Kapiolani Community College on the 4th Monday of the month but may change depending upon the KCC schedule. We have a potluck from 6:00pm to 7:00pm and our meeting starts at 7:00pm. Our meetings normally consist of member presentations, the showing of our theme of the Month and a guest speaker. Please feel free to join us at one of our meetings. Visitors may attend 2 meetings before deciding whether to join the club. With over 130 members, the meetings tend to be quite crowded & confusing to some so if you are there for the 1st time, please ask for our Vice-President, Eddie Freeman who also serves as our Ambassador. See you at our next meeting!
