In the Amarillo College Photography Club there is a bit more finesse to the techniques used. Anyone can pick up a camera and take a picture, and anyone can join the club. Tasha Thorn, a two-year member of the club and the current president, said, “yYou don’t have to be a photography major to join;, not a lot of people know that.”
There have been Mass media students, engineering students and a multitude of other majors who have joined the club. It is open to anyone who pleases. One of the club’s upcoming events is Worldwide Pinhole Day on . It will be held on
Sunday, April the 24th. AtIt is then an event, which is open to the public, where one can learn how to make a working pinhole camera, as well as learn how to develop the photos in a dark room.

Photo Club membership is open anytime. Meetings take place the second Tuesday and fourth Wednesday of each month in 314
