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 generally held the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except for February, July, and August). Occasionally meetings are held on other dates because of a conflict with the church schedule, so be sure to check the Events/News page for specific dates. 

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. There is a nominal $5 guest fee per meeting for non members (cash or check please).

Big Red in the Winter


Andrew Schwallier

Jeanne Quillan

Why I liked the image.

Having been to Holland and Grand Haven in the winter many times in search for the ultimate winter shot, I sometimes come back empty handed. The almost surreal look of this shot caught my eye, the softness of the blue hues in contrast to the bold red of the lighthouse. Andrew’s ‘tweaking’ in post process it appears added the icing to the cake, as the cliché goes, to create this great image – Jeanne  

About my image.

"Big Red in the Winter" is part of a series of photos taken in Holland and Grand Haven State Parks on a warm March afternoon. After a very cold and snowy winter, the accumulation of ice in these areas of Lake Michigan was outstanding and the warm weather caused melting and evaporation to occur. I tweaked this fog affect by reducing the Clarity in Capture One for the final image - Andrew
