WELCOME!

To the Eyes of Hawaii Photography Club Website!

We are photographers of all skill levels who not only share our love of photography but also like to socialize with other like-minded people.

Our meetings are held on the 4th Monday of the month. Potluck is from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Our general meeting is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Meetings normally consist of member presentations, short technical tutorials, the Theme of the Month Slide Show and a guest speaker.

Visitors may attend up to 2 meetings before deciding whether to join the club. with over 120 members, the meetings tend to be quite crowded and confusing to some so if you are there for the first time, please ask for our Vice-President, A.J. Jaeger.

See you at our next meeting!


Thank you to everyone who came out. Really great to see everyone again!

EYES OF HAWAII CLUB STATUS

In light of these uncertain times, there was a suggestion from several EOH members that the current officers remain in their positions until we can start in person meetings again to provide for a better transition. All of the current officers have agreed to do so. if anyone has any objections or other ideas, please email milton.hee@gmail.com so it can be discussed.

We will therefore be postponing the election of new officers until a later date.

Annual dues ($24) for the 2020-2021 fiscal year are due by June 30, 2020. Since we will not be meeting in person, please send a check (made payable to “Eyes of Hawaii Photography Club” to:

Checks should be sent to the same P.O. Box. For new memberships, email drostow@gmail.com for an application.

Since there are restrictions on large gatherings, we will be suspending the potlucks and in-person meetings until further notice.

In lieu of the meetings we will be trying to do more photoshoots where members can take pictures and talk to each other while maintaining social distancing. Suggestions for places to do these photoshoots are always welcome. Please send an email to: eohmail@eyesofhawaii.org if you would like to suggest a place.

The monthly Themes will also continue.

If anyone knows of any guest speakers who would be willing to do a presentation via Zoom software, please let us know as we are also thinking of doing an online meetings in lieu of in person meetings.
