Is there a good resource for listing local/regional photography clubs?

While we generally don't encourage questions that are specific to certain localities, I think that asking about how one might find such clubs seems relevant. –  ahockley Mar 10 '11 at 20:34

One good resource would be to check with local retail camera stores - they're likely aware of (if not directly connected with) local photography clubs.

Another resource would be tracking down the local chapter of the pro photo organizations such as ASMP.

One place you might find worth looking at is http://www.meetup.com. Of course, I can't make any guarantees about what (if anything) you'll find in your area, but it stands at least a decent chance of coming up with something.

+1 - a great place to start. –  D. Lambert Mar 10 '11 at 20:27
    
+1 I became aware of quite a few groups which share my interests, including photography, just by browsing the Meetup site. –  Grant Palin Mar 11 '11 at 17:10

Flickr has many regional groups with active participants. For example, I am a member of a bird photography group devoted to my city. Many members are willing to meetup and go on shoots together.

We have an hobbyist photo club at work. We meet every other week during lunch break and have various activities during meeting, usually following a calendar set once or twice a year. The activities include topical assignments, member shows, tutorials and gallery displays in our cafeteria.

See if you have something running in your workplace, and if not, found one! You may be surprised at how many people there find interest in sharing and improving their photography skills.

meetup.com is perfect for this! It's how I found the photography group that I participate in.
