PICZ is a Swiss association founded on November 1st 2013 and based in Zürich. Our objective is gathering and sharing the passion of photography amongst our fellow members and to the public. The main goal of the club is to develop, enhance, practice and improve our core passion: photography.

Members meeting in December 2015 at Fork and Bottle Zurich. Shot with Polaroid camera from 1968.


We have a Photo Studio which we also use as club-house and as a meeting centre, a shooting location and a space where exhibitions can be organised.

We believe that the key to learn and improve our photography is by practicing. This is why PICZ organises events, courses, projects to encourage the practice of photography. See details in our “Activities” section.

The club is a platform to facilitate member access to photo equipment, the exchange of materials and ideas between members, and the organization of photography competitions (See our Competition section and Galleries). Part of the photos resulting from the activities will be published by the club in a calendar, a book, a magazine or in newsletters.

Money collected through membership or resulting from other activities allow the club to purchase equipment which can be used by all members. The association is non-profit, so any membership money received will be used to organize activities, outings and shoots for our members or buy books and equipment that the members can use for a close to zero price.

So why not show your support to the initiative by subscribing to a membership right now?

Please join us in this adventure.
