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.

DeVos Mobius

Why I liked the image.

I was instantly attracted to this image for its lines and color. This relatively new, well known Grand Rapids architectural feature has been photographed by many of us, but not in this way with this treatment. Frequently when we see competition prints we are awed by sweeping mountain or seascape panoramas by quaint villages or iconic foreign places. We know the maker has gone to great lengths and expense to photograph these places. I think that is what I thought about when I saw this piece. Any of us could have taken it…but we didn’t. – Joy 

About my image.

While at DeVos Place during ArtPrize, I was looking toward the front of the arena from the upper level and had the feeling I was looking at infinity. The size of the structure and the flowing lines almost overwhelms the senses.  The people in the photo help to give proportion to the photo.  I named the photo “Devos Mobius” because the curves of the architecture reminded me of a Mobius strip, which is similar to the symbol for infinity. – Roger
