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 held the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except for February, July, and August). 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.  Most meetings are free for guests, but occasionally when we have a paid speaker there is a small $5 fee for non members.

Why I liked the image.

I personally, enjoy art with a message. This picture speaks to me. It is a powerful statement of a current and important issue our country is facing. These kids need to be heard. My thank you to Russ who captured this moment. - Becky

About my image.

This photo was taken at the "March For Our Lives" rally held on March 24, 2018 in downtown Grand Rapids. I am completing my 49th year in education and have strong feelings about the safety of our children in schools today. This rally gave me the perfect opportunity to capture images for Photojournalism. I feel that this photo tells a strong story about the fears that today's student’s face. The image was taken with a Fuji FinePix XP70. The focal length was 25mm 200 ISO f4.9 @ 1/500. - Russ
