About Our Club

Since 1993, the Crosstown Camera Club in Edina, Minn., has been a catalyst for the advancement, education and enjoyment of photography for people of all levels of skill and experience. Our emphasis is on fine-art imagery that tells a story or conveys an idea through the effective use of design, emotional and intellectual content, and advanced capture and post-processing techniques.  It is a great place to meet others who share a passion for the art, and an interest in improving their capabilities and developing a style all their own.
