Photo club brings artists together


NMU’s Photo Club connects over more than photos. Only three or four students were involved when it began in the fall of 2016, but it has recently grown to 25 members.

All are welcome to join, regardless of photography experience, club Founder and President Julia Quinn shared in an email.

“Most members have cameras, practice photography and learn from each other. However, a lot of members do not have cameras and use their phones, or just come spend time with us,” Quinn said.

The Photo Club takes one day-long trip per semester to Pictured Rocks in the fall and to Eben Ice Caves in the winter. Quinn added that the Photo Club is a great place to learn about photography and meet new people who share a common interest.

The organization meets in the lobby of the new dorms from 2 to 5 p.m. every Sunday in the fall, and every other week in the winter.
