Presidents Message

Greetings, and welcome to The Orlando Camera Club website! The Orlando County Camera Club is the largest, most active and, in my not so humble opinion, the best in the Central Florida region. This club represents a wide range of very talented photographers.  A membership offers every member the opportunity to learn from the very best.

For over 14 years, every photographer, beginner, advanced and pro, has had access to learning opportunities, from basic to advance, and help with your quest to learn along the way to becoming a better photographer.

 

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 photographers 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.  Our upcoming programs will be exciting with new speakers that will hold everyone’s interest.

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.

From my beginnings as a photographer back in the early sixties, with an old Argus C-3, to my transition to a DSLR, and now to the newest technology available, a new mirrorless camera, I never expected the honor of being asked to be president of the Orlando Camera Club.  I’ve met new friends and progressed in my own learning process, trying to master my camera.

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!

Ronald Lawrence
President Orlando Camera Club
