Welcome to the
Minnesota Nature Photography Club

The Minnesota Nature Photography Club was founded in 1956. Its purposes are: continuing education in the art, science and technique of nature photography; evaluation of members’ photography; appreciation and enjoyment of the outdoors; and fellowship. The Club is affiliated with the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs (TCACCC).

Please join us at our monthly meeting at the REI store in Bloomington, on the third Wednesday of the month from September through May. Visitors are always welcome.
