The Blount County Photo Club was established in January, 2000. The club is all about the love of photography. It is for the beginner to the advanced photographer. The club has field trips, guest speakers and members of all levels of experience. We do displays and slide shows using our members photos - no matter what level a person is at.
If you live or are visiting in the Blount County, Tennessee area and would like to join us, we meet the third Thursday of every month at the Blount County Public Library. Social Time starts at 6:30, meeting begins at 7:00.
