Presidents Message

I want to personally welcome you to the Orlando Camera Club, a place where enthusiastic photo professionals and hobbyists of the greater Orlando area gather, learn, create, and support each other in their photographic adventures. Our club has been a local favorite since April 2004 and was founded Ken Blye, Dwain Cunningham, Wayne Gautreaux, Mary Berger and Bob and Jane Riley. Our continued success is attributed to our members who are actively involved and committed to growth, in numbers, skill, creativity and camaraderie.

Our group of 300+ photographers meet at the Marks Street Senior Center and hope to return soon from our digital/pandemic hiatus. During this time, we are still meeting every second and fourth Monday evening albeit in the digital realm. Last year we have been entertained by a fantastic lineup of speakers, to the likes of Bryan Peterson, Sara Marino, Eva Pollak, Charles Needle, Herb Paynter and covered topics ranging from Impressionistic Photography, Photographing in Small Spaces and How to Reveal Hidden Detail in your Photos.

When you step into our space, you are sure to feel welcomed and inspired by our friendly and skilled photographers. Experience levels range from new beginner, to novice or professional, though they all have in common a passion for our art and are keen to learn together.  If you are looking to find a kindred photographic spirit or maybe just a quick mentor moment, you are guaranteed to find it here at the Orlando Camera Club. We have members who shoot a wide variety of subjects like birding, wildlife, portraits, abstract, landscape, macro with a wide variety of camera brands, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Fuji, and other camera brands. Our members also enjoy jumping feet first into new techniques such as light painting, double exposures, intentional camera movement and more.

As part of our program line-up, we also offer competitions every even month that are judged, scored, and critiqued and may be entered in our annual competition. Our informal member challenges run every odd month and is an opportunity to experiment and share and is honored by member voting. We also host an exceptional library with over 270 books free to our members.

Field Trips and community volunteering are some of our member highlights as these solidify additional chances to shoot, give back and socialize, with our Annual Meeting and Banquet being the cherry on top.

If you are a current member of our club, I thank you for your friendship and membership. Exceptional, touching, inspiring and award-winning work come out of our club and our talented members are awe inspiring. It is with a thankful heart that I personally look back on my growth as a photographer and pinpoint my decision to join this club as a pivotal step to my proficiency. As president my sincerest wish is to return this invaluable support to all of you, the members!

Ansa du Toit
