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.



Next Crosstown Camera Club meeting is on September 20th

Our speaker for the Crosstown Camera Club meeting on September 20th will be George Slade.

George Slade is currently the Executive Director of TC Photo, a Minneapolis-based non-profit in operation since 2015. Through his work with hundreds of photographers as a portfolio reviewer, writer, consultant, and curator, George provides support, inspiration, and strategies for photographers to carry out their vision more clearly.

September is a digital salon and the topic is State Park (that means any state, thanks for asking)

You can get a preview of George’s Critique workshop by attending a free orientation session Next Wednesday, August 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center, 2600 East 26th Street, in Minneapolis’ Seward neighborhood (link for location). If you decide to enroll in the group, the year of monthly sessions begins the following week. The cost to join the once a month, year-long TC Photo critique group is $425.
