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!


Beginning with our January 19, 2022 meeting we will be resuming Face to Face meetings. Due to the surge in Covid cases as a result of the Delta and Omicron variants, a properly worn mask is required during the entire meeting, regardless of vaccination status. A virtual Zoom option will be available for those who don't wish to attend in person. Zoom links can be found on the meeting pages under Events/News. Club members will also receive the link by email prior to the meeting.

Recordings of many of our previous online programs are available on the club's YouTube channel.



Please refer to the Membership Manual for a full description of the categories, rules, and procedures of competition.

Grandfather Goat

Why I liked the image.

There are some photos that just jump out at you and make you happy. That was the case this month with the image titled “Grandfather Goat”. The image itself was sharp, well composed, great lighting, and the mood was perfect. I felt as though I could reach out and pet this animal. In his face you could see confidence and knowledge. It truly did make me feel like I was looking at a wise old grandfather. I have told many people that when I judge an image it has to “knock my socks off”, this image did just that. – Russ

About my image.

On Vancouver Island in Coombs, British Columbia, Canada, several goats live on the grass covered roof of the Old Country Market. This grandfather-looking goat strolled over to the edge of the low roof and laid down. I quickly took advantage of him being close so I could get a good portrait shot. He never looked directly at me and never moved but he was obviously aware of my presence. I was struck by his long beard and the coloring of his hair. The black roof behind him made the perfect backdrop for a sharp image with no clutter. – Della
