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.

Our December 15th meeting is a holiday party at Kathy Hara’s home
If you are new, we typically have an exchange of wrapped prints, if you bring one you can get one. People usually bring a bottle of wine or appetizer to share, soft drinks will be available.

In January we will return to our normal Christ Presbyterian Church location.

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

Crosstown images on display at Edina City Hall
The top 12 year-end award-winning images from Crosstown’s 2015—16 season are now being featured through September 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 Peter Rose for coordinating the framing and hanging of the exhibit, and to Edina Art Center Director Michael Frey for providing image wall tags.
