About Us

The Kings Park Photography Club is a friendly group of photo enthusiasts of all levels wishing to improve their skills in a social and educational learning environment.

We are located on the North Shore of Long Island, New York, nestled among many parks, beaches, and wildlife, with stunning landscapes and photo opportunities.

We meet once a month at the Kings Park Library located in Kings Park, NY, but one need not live in Kings Park to belong or participate.

Photo Album -  Birds & Animals


After retiring from a rewarding career as an oncology nurse, I decided to pursue my second passion, animal care. I have volunteered at an animal shelter with dogs and cats, at a stable with horses, at a bird rescue with injured birds. I recently got my N.Y.S. Wildlife Rehab license, and I've been raising 2 orphaned baby squirrels due to be released next week.. We share this planet with so many beautiful creatures with surprising intelligence and rich emotional lives. I believe it's our duty to protect and care for them.

Photography has meant a lot to me in my volunteer work. I can keep the memory of the animals I have taken care of, as well as my own beloved cats. Some of my photos have been used to help adopt out dogs and cats. Because I am with them in quiet moments I am sometimes able to capture a picture that would be impossible in a more posed setting. It's a wonderful feeling when you can say you are changing lives, both the animals' and the people adopting them. It definitely adds to the satisfaction of my work, and these pictures remind me that what I do has meaning and value.

About our banner...
Our banner image was taken from the Kings Park Bluff, where the Nissequogue River 
empties into the Long Island Sound.  Our members often meet and photograph the beautiful sunsets here (and sunrises for the early risers!)  We consider The Bluff as a symbol of Kings Park, and consequently as a symbol of our club.
