I'm going to be a freshman in highschool soon. Me and my friend (she will be in 10th grade) are thinking about starting up a photography club. Does anyone have any advice or any thought on doing this?

That sounds like a great idea!  Do you have a photography teacher?  As the other poster said, it would be helpful if he or she would get involved, particularly so you guys can use the dark room if you need to develop pictures there.

I have never started any kind of club, and maybe this is all pretty obvious.  But, I would say the first step would be to decide what types of things you will do in the club.  Of course you will want to have meetings, maybe once a week after school, and the same day each week.  And then you will could do things at the meetings such as give your club memebers "assignments" (like take a portrait photograph, take a black and white photo with high contrast, take a still life photo ... you get the idea!)  And then at the next meeting, everyone can show thier work!  Another thing that might be cool to do once in a while would be to all meet up somewhere with good subject matter on the weekend, like a park or the beach, because it's always cool to see what a bunch of people decide to photograph when they are all in the same place, you will definitly never get two of the same photo!  Then you as the club organizer type person, should also come up with cool photography books and websites to tell your club members about.  I also think that the members would find it helpful to have a monthly calender printed up and given to them at the first meeting of each month with the schedule for the rest of the month on it.  Lastly before you can actually get the club started you will need to advertise to let people know about !!  You will want to tell the main office to talk about it in the morning announcements, and put something in your school paper about it.  It's probably also a good idea to have a "joining" meeting at which you have music playing (quietly) and food and soda and little favors of some sort, to get people just walking by to be like ... what's going on in there??  At the end of the year, you should put together a photo album, or pamphlet about all the cool stuff you guys did that year, so that way next year you will get even more members!

I hope this helped you out!!  Good luck with it, I think it should be great, and make sure you let us know how it goes!
