Our Meetings
Camera Club Meetings are held twice per month!

Speaker Meeting:  October 8, 2018 - 7pm
Speaker: Denise Silva - Topic: Aurora
Denise finds every aspect of photography rewarding. From in-camera composition to post-processing, photography is meditative, creative, and challenging. Her passion is to capture images, from landscapes to urban decay and to share her experiences and knowledge with fellow photographers. Click on her bio for more details.

Competition Meeting: October 22, 2018 - 7pm - Theme: Architecture 
Judge: Duane Heaton
Born and raised in Mattawan, MI, I was fortunate enough to attend a high school that had a
photography program. I continued my training after graduation in the U.S. Navy – as a
Photographer’s Mate E-5. I taught workshops for the Washington School of Photography – focusing on a style of portraiture I’ve developed called Hollywood Lights, inspired by the movie studio-driven Glamour Photography of screen stars in the 1930s and 40s. Please visit his site at: on his bio for more details.
