Naas Photography Group (NPG) dates from 2012. There are currently approx. 40 active members. Membership is open to 18+, with no experience necessary. New members are always welcome. We meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month in the Town House Hotel, Newbridge Rd, Naas (8pm).
We have a wide range of backgrounds with a common hobby, photography. We have a balance of beginners to experienced members. Our emphasis is on the social aspect of photography, the fun element & the things that we learn along the way are an added bonus. Whichever category, we continue to learn more about photography through sharing our knowledge and experience with our fellow members and through the activities in which we participate.
NPG is affiliated with the Irish Photography Federation (IPF), enabling access to experienced photographers and nationwide competitions.
