Presidents Message

Greetings, and welcome to The Orlando Camera Club website! The Orlando Camera Club is the largest and most active camera club in all of Central Florida and it is my honor and privilege to serve as President.
Our club is made up of a wide range of talented professional and hobbyist photographers. Membership offers the opportunity to learn from some of the best photographers in the country.
For over 13 years, novice and advanced photographers have benefited greatly from our programs. Programs ranging from those geared to the very basics of photography to others covering much more advanced techniques.

CAMERA ACADEMY – One of our main goals is to provide high quality educational programs for our members. One way we accomplish that is through our Camera Academy. These classes meet prior to our general meetings and cover topics ranging from novice to intermediate.

GUEST SPEAKERS – Besides some of our very own local talent, we also have well respected photographer’s from various parts of the country speak and give workshops for our members. Some of our past speakers include: Bryan Peterson, Onne van der Wal, Rick Sammon, David Hume Kennerly and Parish Kohanim, to name a few.

SHOOT OUTS – Our field trips or, as we refer to them as, “SHOOT OUTS” give members the opportunity to go out as a group to put some of the things they learn into practice. Shootouts are a great way to get to know fellow members and learn from one another as you build friendships with those who share the same love for photography.

COMMUNITY SERVICE – Members of the Orlando Camera Club donate many hours of their time and talent photographing events for not for profit organizations. This activity has proven to be a very rewarding experience for not only the organizations but also for the photographers themselves. For more info visit our Community Service Page

COMPETITIONS – Six times a year, we have photo competitions where members can enter their best images and have them critiqued by a panel of three judges. Over the years these competitions have proven to be a great tool to help members improve the art of seeing, capturing and processing great images.

Personally, The Orlando Camera Club has helped transform me into a much better photographer than I ever thought was possible. During the process I not only improved my skills but I also have made a whole group of new friends along the way!

So, if you have a passion for photography, want to learn from some of the best talent around and have lots of fun doing it, come join us at our next meeting. You don’t have to join right away. Come as my personal guest for a test ride. I look forward to meeting you!

George Crudo
President Orlando Camera Club
