History ~ The Thousand Oaks Personal Computer Club is proud of our digital Photo Group. The Photo Group's first meeting was held on Saturday, April 28, 2001. About 20 people attended. The group has grown over the years and now there are anywhere from 80 to 120 people attending our monthly meetings. We welcome all levels of amateur photographers, from beginners to advanced, from Ventura County and beyond.

Mission ~ The mission of the Photo Group is to create a supportive club environment where we socialize and help members enjoy the wonderful art of photography while learning the essential skills needed to advance as digital photographers.
