Educating, Inspiring & Motivating Photographers of all Levels

Meetings on the 1st, 3rd, & 5th Thursdays of the Month. Click for Details

Welcome to NAPfS!

The North Austin Pƒotographic Society is an inclusive, north Austin photo club dedicated to educating, inspiring and motivating its members through frequent face-to-face activities at regular club meetings. The club is open to photographers of all levels from true beginners (no camera required) to professionals. Through regular meetings, NAPƒS builds a community of active photographers, practicing their love for all types of photography. NAPƒS members share their passion and skills through presenting their work at meetings, participating in monthly competitions with live critiques, and exhibiting their work at our socials. We offer monthly hands-on workshops from area professionals, as well as national level celebrity photographers. Club activities are designed to help photographers of all levels grow through active shooting and feedback.

This website is being used to test a new competition method on a trial.  If it is successful and the club officers agree, this website will become the permanent host for NAPfS competition.  Eventually, more club information will be added to this website.

Our original website is  It is still active, but all new activities are handled on this this site as of January 15, 2020.


Why do we use "Pfotographic" instead of "Photographic"?  Because the club was founded in Pflugerville, Texas, which is just north of Austin.  The club history is available from the menu at "Organization > About NAPfS > Club History".

Join us on social media, too!
