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!


We held our first Face to Face meeting since the start of the pandemic on October 20, 2021. A properly worn mask was required during the entire meeting. A virtual Zoom option was available for those who didn't wish to attend in person. The Board is currently discussing how we will proceed for November and December 2021 as our program speakers will be via Zoom since they live out of town. Check our News/Events Page in the coming days and weeks for information on whether our meetings will be held by Zoom only or F2F with a Zoom option.

Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic at this time the club has been meeting virtually via Zoom. Please check our Events/News page for further information on our programs. Members will receive a Zoom link via email to join the meeting. Non-members should contact to request the meeting link. 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.

Image of the Month

Panda's Love Bamboo

Why I liked the image.

The fun thing about choosing the image of the month is that we get to pick our favorite picture, not necessarily the best but the one that impacted us the most. I personally, am obsessed with Pandas. This is the best panda that I have seen and heard in camera club by far. I love that he was just doing his thing, sitting on a big pile of bamboo, living his best brand of life. Thanks, Jim for sharing this with the club. It made me feel incredibly happy - Becky

About my image.

I traveled to China in 2012. We visited a large panda preserve near the city of Chengdu in the western part of the country. I thought the photo epitomized the life of the giant panda. It must eat huge amounts of bamboo every day. It consumes about 80 pounds and eats up to 14 hours a day - Jim
