What sorts of activities are organized throughout the semester?
Weekly tutorials held on Friday afternoons (4-6pm). We also get a number of guest speakers along each semester to talk about their experiences. Previously we have had talks by Nick Moir (photojournalism), Xiaohan Shen (fashion), Simon Park (food), Eric Kim (street) and Easton Cheng (automotive).
Weekend outings that (usually) correspond to the week’s tutorial topic
Other events include things such as road trips and model shoots
Are there any tutorials teaching me how to use my camera?
We usually run a “basic” and “advanced” tutorial at the beginning of the year to give an introduction to photographic technique (how the camera works, exposure, creative uses of the shutter and aperture, metering, etc). If you want to read up on photographic technique, these are a few helpful websites:

If you need help with how to use your camera (ie. what button does what), then the best advice is to read the camera manual. While the club’s executives are usually more than willing to help members out, we don’t know what every single button of every single camera model does. If you can’t find your manual, here are some helpful links:
Which brand of camera is the best?
The one you are shooting with!
I don’t have a DSLR, can I still join?
We welcome all photographers from any level of expertise using any equipment. As long as you are interested in photography and are willing to have fun then that’s ok by us!
