Club Mission Statement:  Cape Cod Viewfinders Camera Club serves the Cape Cod area and is dedicated to promoting the study, understanding, improvement and enjoyment of photography. We encourage participation by photographers of every skill level, from the newest beginners to the most advanced amateurs and working professionals.
Here you can effectively learn from experts and dedicated advanced amateurs all aspects of photography. Highlights of membership include in-depth lectures, club and interclub competitions, field trips, slide shows, critique nights, hands-on learning sessions, member exhibits, and special events. Each meeting includes a social segment with refreshments.
The print and digital club competitions are judged by qualified outside judges who give constructive evaluation of each image, along with a point value. Competitions can be a great learning experience, providing insight into how images might be improved to create prize-winning images.
The Cape Cod Viewfinders CC is a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) and we compete in both PSA (PID and Nature) and NECCC competitions (Color Prints, B/W Prints, Projected Images- Open and Projected Images-Nature).

What is something about your club that we might not know:  We are a mixture of “wash ashores” from off cape camera clubs and “Daughters of the American Colonialists”, DAC members.

Three words that describe your club: competitive, fun, educational.
