The photography club of Tecnun is composed of restless students who want to improve their skills with the camera to capture everything within their reach. To do so, they attend different theoretical and practical sessions and deliver, at the end of semester, a photographic report. 

"It occurred to me that the students could collaborate with associations that need photos to document their activities," explains María Isabel Rodriguez, the teacher who coordinates the club and who wanted to collaborate with Tantaka in this way last year. "It's a simple way for them to enjoy themselves, learn how to take photos, and help by doing what they like and know how to do," Rodriguez explains. 

"Since I had been to Aspace before, I was very excited to see that there were people who still remembered me. I talked to my classmates and they all agreed agreement that it had been a very rewarding experience. It even encouraged them to sign up permanently at Aspace next year," admits Pablo Barrenechea, student , who is now starting his 4th year of Industrial Technologies Engineering. 

"We wanted to capture the good time we students had there with the residents, from taking walks, to talking and playing with them. In the end, taking photos is just an excuse, as I believe that this activity brings the students even closer to the world of volunteer activities," continues Barrenechea. 

Teresa Olano, another of the club's students, went to association Afagi to take photos in a movement workshop organized by association. "It was a very positive experience. I think it's a very good idea because we can put into practice what we have learned at class and with a different goal than what we are used to. Besides, I think it's a good way to get to know different nearby associations," says Olano, who will start his 3rd year of Industrial Technologies Engineering in September.

"I felt very well and they treated us great. It was very noticeable that they appreciated us being there, and seeing elderly people having a good time and with a huge smile on their faces was very satisfying", continues María Sevillano, who in her case went to Musikene to photograph a dance gala between volunteers and people with Alzheimer's disease from the association Afagi. 

"I think it's a very good idea because it's a way of practising photography while contributing to a good cause, not just for the aesthetics of the photo itself. I would definitely repeat", concludes this 3rd year Biomedical Engineering student.
