The Shawnee Photo Club has been in existence since the founding of Shawnee High School in 1971. The club , one of Shawnee’s photography teachers, Christian Hochenberger, and a group of annually elected students, has been in place since 2003. Shawnee Photo Club aims to involve students of any grade or skill level, who may or may not take a photography class, in hopes of furthering individual interest. SPC gives students a chance to present their work to a larger audience in hopes of receiving praise and feedback. The main way for students to showcase work is through the annual Winter Photo Show held at Vaughan Hall. The members of SPC inspire each other with their own work and produce some of the most captivating images ever seen by high school students.
