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.

Crosstown images featured at Edina City Hall
Twelve year-end award-winning images from 2014 and 2015 by Crosstown members are now being featured through October of next year in the Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St, Edina, MN 55424. The photos are available for viewing in the Community Room during regular business hours (but best over the noon hour when the room is less prone to be in use). Enter city hall, walk up the stairs and head straight back to find the Community Room. Special thanks for Crosstown members Cynthia Fleury, Ray Klempka and John Olson for coordinating the framing and hanging of the exhibit, and to Edina Art Center Director Michael Frey for providing image wall tags.
