Club Mission Statement: 31 persons met at the museum of natural history on Aug 11, 1937, and voted to organize a camera club. Most of the group had been members of a class in photography conducted by Norman C. Van Ness, Assistant Curator of the museum. First show in 1938 saw 91 prints submitted. The club met at the Museum of Natural History until 1939 when it moved to George Walter Vincent Smith Museum.
Club founding mission: “To create and foster interest in the study and practice of the art of photography”
Currently (2014) this club has about 100 members and meets twice a month from Sept-May. We provide members with a monthly photo competition and also provide weekend photo field trips to photograph local historic and natural resources. We sponsor an annual photo education program in April that provides members and the general public with free advice on the science and artistry of photographs presented by club members with outstanding credentials in the world of photography.
