Welcome to the website for the Kiawah Island Photo Club. The goal of the Kiawah Island Photo Club is to help our members take better pictures and to share them more effectively. This website provides an abundance of information about both our Club and the many photography resources available on the internet.

Regular monthly meetings deal with some aspect of photography that can benefit photographers of all skill levels and interests.  Topics vary and several are paired with our popular shoots. 

Our PHOTO SHOOTS are intended to appeal to photographers of a range of skill and equipment. They often include a critique/review session.  They provide an opportunity to learn from other photographers, both amateur and professional. 

The Workshops generally deal with some aspect of digital photography and its interface with computers. Workshops are usually characterized as Basic or Advanced and are designated as for Mac or PC or both. The slides from many of our WORKSHOPS are available in the page "Workshop and Lecture Notes.” 

NOTE: The meetings and workshops are generally held at Beachwalker Center. If it is moved to the Sandcastle, an email announcement will be made.

"Over the last seven years, I’ve been particularly inspired to capture images of birds of prey, then expanding to include other large birds. This time I started in their natural habitat, spending many hours outside, waiting and watching, capturing osprey breeding, great blue heron building their nests, and egrets flying majestically over the marsh."
