Welcome to the website of the Trilogy Photography Club, a club open to all residents of Trilogy at Vistancia who want to improve their picture-taking skills. Or maybe you just want to learn how to use your camera. All are welcome to be a member of our club.

Want to know the secret to taking better photos? Take more photos!

And that is why we exist. We take pictures, talk about our photos and the stories behind them, have monthly themes to encourage members to keep taking pictures, and have guest speakers to help us learn new ideas. We sponsor trips and workshops, and we even have competitions to recognize outstanding photos submitted by members. We also invite members to share their tips about their cameras or how to use Lightroom/Photoshop.

Whether you use a DSLR, a point-and-shoot, or a smartphone camera, you will find our club to be fun and helpful. Take a few minutes to look at our website. Enjoy our “galleries” that often feature our monthly theme or a field trip. And then jump in and join us.

Mission Statement

To promote learning, photographic proficiency, and fellowship through guest speakers, education, workshops, members helping members, field trips, and photo competitions.



While summer is not officially here, the temps sure make it feel like it has arrived.  With summer comes travel, fun, outdoor adventure and time to take plenty of photos. So don’t leave your camera behind.


At our last meeting of the season, we tasked the membership to go out and find images of things and places that a typical visitor to Trilogy would not normally see. The results are quite interesting, so be sure and check out the 40+ images from your fellow club members on our Galleries page “What Visitors Don’t See”.


Our project for the summer is “photographing water – everything on it, in it, under it, or near it”. You can start submitting your images. Send them to  Be sure to size them as you would for competition entries. The deadline for submission is September 1st.


Our next meeting is September 27th, so until then, take lots of pictures and enjoy summertime wherever your travels take you. We are planning a very active season and the fun starts in September. 


Start planning now for this fall’s ACCC Round Up and photo competition.

Entries will be due in October. Check out the ACCC website for information.

Trilogy Photography Club meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month from September thru May at the Center for High Learning in the Kiva Club at 6 PM. 

Meetings may include guest speakers, field trips to practice skills and capture unique photo opportunities, workshop classes, or club competitions.

PLEASE NOTE: Meetings in November and December may occur on other days or may be cancelled due to holiday conflicts. Trilogy residents who are interested in learning more about the Club are invited to attend prior to joining.


The TPC hosts a number of photo shoots each year, including field trips, workshops in the field, monthly themes, etc. 

Past photo shoots have included:

  • "A Day at the Zoo" led by the Zoo photographers
  • A 3-day trip to Monument Valley for a guided shoot of sunrise and sunset with a Navajo guide
  • A day event at the Pioneer Living History Museum which included a re-enactment of an old west shoot-out!


Each year the TPC hosts at least one club photo competition for its members. 

Judging is performed by the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and awards are presented at our Club meetings. 

In addition, winners and their photographs are highlighted on this website and in print at the Trilogy Kiva Club. Information on how to enter can be found HERE.

The TPC also encourages its members to participate in other competitions throughout the year, such as those held by the Arizona Camera Club Council (ACCC). Information on the ACCC competitions can be found HERE.


The best way to learn photography and to improve your skills is to shoot, shoot, shoot...and share! 

The TPC encourages members to "shoot and share" by hosting print displays of selected photographs at the Kiva Club and through posting members' photos on this website. 

We encourage members to submit their photos to "theme of the month" and other special galleries created by the Board.  Please refer to the Competitions tab to learn how to submit correctly sized and named photos.

In addition, the Board posts galleries of winning photographs from the TPC competition(s) and from the ACCC competitions. Please visit our on-line galleries to see and share the work.
