Our Meetings
Camera Club Meetings are held twice per month!

Speaker Night: Arthur Ransome - Topic: “Complex Simplicity” - 1/12/2015
Arthur is a fine art black and white photographer.  His presentation will focus on the role of
photographers to distill the complex scene in front of them to one of simplicity that recreates vision and emotional experience.

***After the break, club members are urged to bring in a new piece of camera equipment, accessory, image editing software, book, video or other photography related item. With gifts received this holiday season you may have a new item or two you would like to share with us as we conduct a “show-n-tell” session.  Please plan to stay for this entire meeting!

Single Day Photography Field Trips
The Gaithersburg Camera Club has launched a series of single day photography field trips that are within an easy drive from our hometown. Members with any level of experience are free to join us at a variety of locations.

GCC Meet-Up
It’s a new concept to provide club members with more opportunities to shoot together without counting on a GCC field trip coordinator to accompany the group.
