 Presidents Message

Welcome to the Orlando Camera Club where our membership encompasses all categories of photographers from novice to advanced and enthusiast to full time photographic professionals. We come from around the world with many varied  professions and photography interests. Some of our members are “snow birds”, attending during their winter stays in Florida and participating long distance while at their summer homes. One thing we all have in common is a desire to learn together and share our images, techniques and fellowship.

OCC hosts Competition Nights during even numbered months where images  are critiqued by Central Florida photographic and art professionals. Categories for competition include Beginner, Advanced, Monochrome and Creative. Education is a high priority  and we have a Novice and Intermediate group that meet before the General Session (we are currently revamping our offerings so check our club calendar for upcoming sessions.)

Monthly field trips, called Shootouts, are timed to coincide with competition themes, bird migrations, local events and member desires. Many of our members donate their photographic services to charitable organizations via our Volunteer Coordinator. Our Program Chair brings in some of the biggest names in photography for our monthly General Sessions. OCC’s advanced members present their specialties regularly at club meetings and are available before and after meetings to help with questions relating to cameras and post-processing.

Orlando Camera Club has a vibrant Facebook page for its members ( Facebook: Orlando Camera Club ). Here we share our creations, travel photos, and conversations on photographic topics. It is a 24/7 social community. As a member of OCC, we are also members of the Florida Camera Club Council (F3C.org). At F3C there are opportunities for further digital and print competitions, discussion boards, and a statewide conference that happens every few years.

Lastly, organizations thrive by mentoring those who will lead in the future. OCC’s offerings would not exist without the tireless efforts of our volunteers, past and present, who truly care about the success and growth of our club and its members. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your President and would love to hear from you at: president@orlandocameraclub.com!

Best Regards,
Julie Lee, President
2016-2017

P.S. If you are not yet a club member, please be my guest at one of our General Meetings, introduce yourself, and try Orlando Camera Club on for size.
