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 holiday party). The meetings include a digital or a print salon competition and photographic presentations. Guests are welcome but you must be paid members to compete in the monthly salons.


The next Crosstown Camera Club meeting will be on

October is a print salon and the topic is Night Life


The next CCC board meeting will be at 6:30 on Monday October 1 at the Edina Art Center. All club members are welcome. Come to the meeting and find out how you can become more involved in the club.

Crosstown Camera Club Fall Outing
Saturday October 6

Hidden Falls at Nerstrand State Park


A fall photo outing is being organized by Wally Sunderland:

Two things I really enjoy about living in Minnesota are fall colors and waterfalls. So we’re going to visit two scenic locations just south of the Twin Cities

There are a pair of waterfalls that beg for a visit from photographers, Hidden Falls in Nerstrand Big Woods State Park and Caron Falls in Caron Park. Caron Park is located just west of Nerstrand Big Woods. The Falls in both parks are relatively easy walks from their respective parking lots, about 10-15 minutes at my pace with my prosthetic hips.

I would propose that we leave the Cities around 8:30-9:00AM for a morning of shooting and then we can stop for a late lunch at some place in Northfield. We would probably want to car pool. We can determine where to meet to car pool depending on who’s coming. Departure times and so forth are flexible so this outing will be tailored to those who are planning to attend.

If you’re interested send an email to Wally Sunderland.
