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 the Boy Scouts of America, 3213 Walker Ave. NW, Walker, MI. Come and visit; you can elect to join our club at any time.

Image of the Month
It's a Long Story
Why I liked the image.
Immediately, I was drawn to its title “It’s a Long Story” and its great composition. Often times, a title says as much about an image as the photo itself, drawing the viewer to connect with it. It intrigues me, causing me to question…what is the long story? Where does this road lead? Has the truck traveled this road many times, but in the past? It draws my eye directly into the woods, perhaps where the answers to these questions lie. I feel it was excellently done as a monochrome image….Jeanne Quillan
About my image.
Sometimes old vehicles can become cliché even when they are presented in all their colorful, rusty glory. My attempt here was to convert to black and white and to include the upward road to ‘who knows where’ and the gate blocking the path. Old cars and photos of old cars can all have a story and, for some, it’s a long one. Hopefully, the picture encourages the imagination each time it is viewed….Steve Port
