About this Website

My Name is Frithjof Moritzen and I am your host on Glob­alPho­to­Club.

You can send me a mes­sage on the Con­tact page. Tell me what you like and what’s not so great, I am open to con­struc­tive crit­i­cism. Well, most of the time.

So, what is this place?

A while ago I tried to find infor­ma­tion about how pho­to clubs work and what they do. I couldn’t find any one web­site or blog or any­thing in one sin­gle place. I could find bits and pieces, so I thought, I could cre­ate that place to col­lect all the infor­ma­tion on a website.

This is the place.

Top­ics you will find here:

  • Arti­cles about being a mem­ber of a pho­to club
  • What are pho­to­graph­ic soci­eties, what do they do
  • An online replace­ment for a pho­to club, for peo­ple who might not be able to join one “in real life”
  • An online pres­ence to com­ple­ment a phys­i­cal neigh­bour­hood pho­to club
  • a place to find gen­er­al tuto­ri­als about pho­to­graph­ic top­ics nor­mal­ly dis­cussed in pho­to clubs
  • a place to find infor­ma­tion about the his­to­ry of photography
  • a place to find instruc­tions and ideas about pho­to­graph­ic projects
  • online pho­to­graph­ic chal­lenges and contests
  • a place to grow your pho­to­graph­ic abilities
  • a place to join a mem­ber­ship com­mu­ni­ty (planned) with addi­tion­al con­tent, for a month­ly subscription

Basi­cal­ly most things you would expect to find when you join a phys­i­cal pho­to club, but online.

I still rec­om­mend join­ing a neigh­bor­hood Pho­to Club, if you can. An online pres­ence like this web­site can’t replace the face-to-face inter­ac­tions of a phys­i­cal Pho­to Club.
