Welcome to the Crosstown Camera Club

Whether you are just starting out in photography or are an experienced professional, Crosstown Camera Club is a great place to sharpen your skills, share ideas and socialize with others who share a passion for the art of print and digital photography. Our meetings throughout the year provide opportunities to:

  • Develop, improve photographic techniques (photo capture and post-processing).
  • Learn design, emotional impact, storytelling and other fine-art techniques.
  • Socialize with other photographers.
  • Participate in monthly digital and print salons critiqued by experienced judges.
  • Gain photography-related insights from guest speakers at monthly programs.
  • Join members on photography field trips.

For more information, refer to the General Information menu to the right and click on About Our Club.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, September through May (with the exception of December when we have our annual holiday party). The meetings include digital or print salon competitions and photographic presentations. Guests are welcome but you must be paid members to compete in the monthly salons.
