About Us

Founded in 2010, Blarney Photography Club is a informal photography club based in Blarney, Co. Cork. We are a group of interested amateur* photographers who enjoy getting together to talk about our hobby and of course, take photographs.

*From the Latin “amator:” lover, devoted friend, devotee, enthusiastic pursuer of an objective. When photography started to get serious in the late 19th century the status of amateur was the reverse of today where the “Professional” was considered everyday. If you told someone their work was professional they would have considered that as a negative where as to be told that the work was truly amateur was a great compliment!
