Mission Statement

The Donabate Portrane Photographic Group Through the Lens provides an informal, friendly and supportive environment for photographers at all levels of experience and with interests in all types of photographic imagery. The Group fosters and encourages growth of artistic vision and technical knowledge, exploring the connection between the eye, the camera, and the spirit. We share ideas and knowledge with each other and help to promote interest in photography in the community through exhibitions and other events.

We come from all walks of life and have a wide range of experience, from beginners to professionals. Membership is open to anyone.
