The Houston Innerloop Photo Club was started in 2005 by Kelton Starkey, Richard Mize and Jane Montgomery. Jane was the owner of a professional camera store and provided monthly continuing education talks at the store. Kelton, Richard and several others wanted more so the club was formed and met monthly in the studio of Woodallen Photography. Kelton was elected as the club’s first president and Richard as the vice president of programs.  With the enthusiasm of the initial group, the club soon grew to over twenty-five members.  The club focuses on continuing education and the sharing of the members’ passion for photography.

Today’s club has some new members and some members that have been around for a while. It is a good mix of enthusiastic photographers of all types looking to grow their skills and have fun interacting with others that share their passion for making pictures.

Membership in the Houston Innerloop Photo Club is open to all photography enthusiasts, from novices to professional photographers. Club members participate in field trips, meetings and monthly challenges. Meetings feature diversified programs, talks by experts, workshops, model shoots, and helpful critiques. Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month from 6:30pm – 9:00pm in the Trini Mendenhall Community Center 1414 Wirt Road Houston, TX 77055.

Come and visit us – guests are always welcome!

Membership Dues: $50 per person per year due in January.
