***  June Shootouts – See below ***
Hello OCCers!
For our June field trip, we are going to the Convention Center (North Concourse)!!
WHERE: 9400 Universal Blvd, Orlando FL 32819
WHEN: Saturday, June 11th, 2022, from 8:30 am – 11:00 am.
This is a great venue for architectural elements, black and white photography, plenty of leading lines, light and shadows, and of course abstract and ICM. If you are a nature or landscape photographer, this is the perfect occasion to test your skills in other areas.
I thought we would go back to CAFE’ TU TU TANGO [8625 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819], for lunch… a great place for tapas and conversation!
Please RSVP to: fieldtrips@orlandocameraclub.com
Thanks so much, hope to see you there!

Presidents Message

Are you a photographer looking for a local camera club in the Orlando area or considering taking up photography as a new hobby? Are you looking for a group of photographers just to hang with? If yes to any of this, please consider joining the Orlando Camera Club. We have lots to offer to both the beginning and seasoned photographers.

During the pandemic we migrated to a Zoom format which gives us access to a rich set of speakers all over the world. We are currently moving to a hybrid of Zoom and in-person meeting format as we come out of the pandemic. We meet twice a month on the second and fourth Monday of each month.

We offer monthly field trips to a variety of places in central Florida. We also have Special Interest Groups (SIG) dedicated to Abstract, Nature, People and Landscape photography. The Special Interest Groups meet the first Monday of the month over Zoom to plan outings, goals and challenges and each SIG decides how they wish to run their group.

We have formal competitions and informal challenges. The formal competition is theme based and formally judged with a panel of three judges. The competition results are presented during one of our meetings so members can learn how to improve their photography. The informal challenges winners are determined by our members who vote on their favorite images.

We also offer opportunities for community volunteering for those members who wish to practice and giveback to the community.

For our current members we also have a rich library of materials on the OCC website which are Zoom recordings of past speakers which include Nic Stover, David H. Wells, Lewis Katz and many others. There are also downloadable materials on a variety of subjects.

So, lots of opportunities to interact with fellow members and learn from each other. For me personally I joined as a beginner and have learned so much and have matured both as a photographer and as a person. I never envisioned myself as president of the OCC but here I am. As president my main priority is the members and success of the club. If you are reading these and wish to test the water before joining please email me at president@orlandocameraclub.com and I will be happy to invite you to one of our meetings.
