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.

Soaking Up The Sun


Steve Port

Kathy Kendall

Why I liked the image.

I chose Steve Port’s black and white image because of the beautiful light that it captured. Rarely does a black and white image truly capture this much light with such intensity and interesting detail. You’re drawn to the man's arteries and veins on his limbs, to the amazing folds in his clothes, the park bench, his expression.  He looks like a wax sculpture and your eye wants to stay on the photograph to look longer.  Great job! – Kathy 

About my image.

On my one and only visit to New Orleans, I wandered around bustling Jackson Square taking in the art scene and curious assemblage of humanity.  When I saw this seasoned gentleman asleep on a park bench, I was moved by two feelings.  Clearly he was down on his luck yet somehow able to enjoy, for the moment, his “place in the sun.” I felt both sadness and jealousy and wanted to capture a moment of his story. – Steve
