Free Presentation August 4th  7-9:00PM  – Finding You in Your Work by Blake Rudis

The Casements Camera Club has invited the Orlando Camera Club to join them for a free presentation by photographer,  Blake Rudis.

Have you ever wondered what makes the viewer’s jaw drop when they see a photo they like? A few answers that come to mind are probably Composition, Color, Subject Matter, or even Shape & Form.

But, what if I told you the answer is you. Yes, you! As simple as that sounds it makes all the difference.

In this Live Event, we will dive deep into the emotive side of photography. We will discuss how to find yourself in your work so you can harness your passion while making your best images ever. We will then look at f64 Elite user-submitted photos and transform them with subliminal artistic decisions that will help take them to the next level.

It doesn’t matter if you are an absolute beginner, or if you’ve been into photography for decades. There will be something for everyone.

Come with an open mind and a notebook of questions!

Presidents Message

Welcome to the Orlando Camera Club website! Our membership is comprised of several hundred photographers of all skill and experience levels – from seasoned professionals to hobbyists and students. This diversity makes our club a great place to learn about photography as well as just enjoy related activities with like minded enthusiasts!  Membership in the OCC puts a vast wealth of knowledge and opportunities at your fingertips.

GUEST SPEAKERS – We are fortunate to have some very talented photographers and speakers as members of our club.  They share their knowledge and experience with all of our members on a frequent basis.  Additionally, we have many other noteworthy photographers that educate and entertain us both at our club meetings as well as private workshops.  A list of speakers that have visited with us in the recent past includes Frank Lee Ruggles, Bryan Peterson, Rick Sammon, David Hume Kennerly, and Parish Kohanim, to name just a few.

SHOOT OUTS – Our Central Florida Shootouts are popular field trips for members who enjoy meeting other photographers, learning new techniques and just socializing and talking shop. They are great way to build friendships with others who have a shared interest in photography.  And you may just find a new favorite photo shoot location!

COMMUNITY SERVICE – We are very proud of the many members of our club who donate their time and photographic skills to various charitable and non-profit organizations throughout the Central Florida area.    Want to get some real world event photography experience?  Well, this is a great way to do it.  And speaking from personal experience, it’s very fun and rewarding as well! For more info visit our Community Service Page

COMPETITIONS – OCC conducts formal photo competitions six times each year where members can enter their best images and have them critiqued by a panel of experienced judges.  Very popular with our members, these events provide great feedback focused on improving our abilities to see, capture, and process great images. During the other six months of the year when there is no formal competition scheduled, we hold “Informal Challenges.”  Similar to formal competitions, members submit images for the challenges theme but instead of being rated by a panel of judges, the entire club membership has the opportunity to vote for their favorites.

Photography has become a second career for me, and without reservation I can say that the OCC has had a significant impact on my growth and development as a photographer.  Equally, I have met scores of great people at our club, all with an interest in photography, and many of whom I now call friends.

So, if you have a passion (or even just an interest) in photography and want to learn and share photographic skills with a group of great people, I invite you to come to our next meeting.  No obligation to join in order to attend your first meeting or two – we welcome visitors who want to come see what we’re about.  And when you do visit us, please make it a point to find me and say hello – I’m always happy to meet a fellow photographer!
