The Gaithersburg Camera Club primarily serves upper Montgomery County, though members come from all over.  The club is meant for camera enthusiasts of varying skills and interests.  Our goal is to help you become a better photographer and give you a place to meet others who share your passion for photography.  Our programs and activities provide information and instruction for all skill levels. Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings with or without a member.

For the end-of-year (June) competition, the deadline is Tuesday, May 24.  In addition to that being the deadline for registration of prints and submission of digital images, that is also the deadline for DELIVERY of prints.  Prints can be delivered to the May competition meeting the day before, or they can be delivered to Alan Zipp's office, Rich Marcus's house, or such other place as may be announced.  (If using one of these latter options, contact Alan or Rich to make arrangements.  Rich is not available Tuesday late afternoon or early evening.)
