About Delhi Photography Club
Delhi Photography Club was setup with the intent of taking photography homes. The purpose of the DPC is to stimulate, enable, and nurture a fraternity of photography enthusiasts for mutual benefit.
Due to fast changing internet and mobile devices space, many more people are consuming photos. We want people to store their memories more beautifully. The club is perhaps the first initiative of this kind in the entire country.
To offer situations to practice photography, we do free photo walks every month. For learning the technique, we have workshops for various levels (beginner and intermediate), for motivation, we offer memberships and finally for platform, we have these exhibitions. The club also helps the underserved children to express themselves creatively through its outreach activities.
As a club, we have brought together businessmen, diplomats, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, students and children and helped them in their creative expression using a camera.
