WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CLUB?
One of my goals for this club is to create a space for anyone interested in photography to learn more about it. I also want people to be able to apply all of the things they learn about in order to create more expressive pictures that are representative of themselves. I want the club members to find their own photography styles.

 

CLUB DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this photography club is to appreciate the art of photography and share our love for it. All students are more than welcome to join, and no previous photography experience is needed. All you need is an interest in photography and a willingness to share and learn with us! We will learn much more about photography together and generate interest for the whole school by hosting photography competitions. We hope to have snacks, guest speakers, and field trips, as well as a lot of fun as we go on this amazing learning journey together!

SOCIAL MEDIA & WEBSITE: 

How can this club support the school website and the school`s social media accounts?

This club can support the school by being in charge of the photography for the social media websites.

 

How can this club support school activities such as;

Spirit Week, BHM, Open House, CMIT club expo, etc?

 

This club can be a great resource for these events. It can be in charge of taking pictures of the best Spirit Week costumes, the students working on BHM and decorating the doors and can also host photography competitions as an addition to those events. We can film the Open House, and other events in order to make them look as good as possible for advertising purposes.
