Grand Rapids Camera Club

Photography is our passion!

The Grand Rapids Camera Club is a member of the Photographic Society of America and the Southwestern Michigan Council of Camera Clubs. We usually meet once a month for a presentation which is both interesting and informative. This is followed by our photo competition for those members who want to enter. We all get to see the photography of others, and this helps us learn and improve.

Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings!

Club meeting are generally held the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except for February, July, and August). Occasionally meetings are held on other dates because of a conflict with the church schedule, so be sure to check the Events/News page for specific dates.

The meetings start promptly at 7:15 PM, so it is good to arrive about 15 minutes early. We meet at Grace Episcopal Church at 1815 Hall St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506. Come and visit; you can elect to join our club at any time. There is a nominal $5 guest fee per meeting for non members (cash or check please).

Artisan At Work

Why I liked the image.

This artisan is totally focused on his work. The rest of the world has faded away at least for the moment. The arts can provide a place where the mind rests, re-energizes, and renews itself. This picture left me with a warm, comfortable vibe - Steve

About my image.

I was in Ireland this fall, and toured the Waterford factory. Of course I had my camera with me snapping some shots as I learned about what goes into making a piece of Waterford crystal. This gentleman was one of a few master craftsman and I was struck by the juxtaposition of such a seemingly rough burly guy creating such exquisite crystal. When I saw the photo later, I just really liked it, the glow of the light as he worked, the concentration in his face and all the grittiness of his surroundings, even down to his day old facial hair. – Karen
