Santa Clara Camera Club

Making great photos since 1952


Welcome to the Santa Clara Camera Club located in photogenic California!

We are a group of avid amateur photographers who make prints and digital images. We meet to share images, for good fellowship, and to grow as photographers through education and competition.

We’d love for you to join us, or just stop by for a visit.

Club Meetings

We have regularly scheduled club meetings as follows

Program Night
Once per Quarter.
See Event Calendar below.

At Program Night we meet to discuss various topics of interest, photography and post processing techniques, or any number of other subjects that interest club members. The Program Night is an opportunity for members to informally share their knowledge of all aspects of photography.

Digital Competition
2nd Thursday each month starting at 7:30pm

At the Digital Competition Night club member images are projected one at a time, analyzed by the commentator, and judged. Based on the competition results, some images are selected to advance to the N4C competition level.

Print Competition
4th Thursday each month starting at 7:30pm

Print Competition Night is an opportunity for members to submit prints of their images for critique and competition. Prints are presented one at a time, analyzed by the commentator, and judged. Based on the competition results, some prints are selected to advance to the N4C competition level.
Please double check the Upcoming Events calendar below as meetings can change from time to time.

All of our meetings are open to the public.
Please stop by, we'd love to meet you.
