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!
Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic the club will meet virtually via Zoom for the foreseeable future. Please check our Events/News page for information on the Zoom programs. Members will receive a Zoom link via email to join the meeting. Non-members should contact email@example.com to request the meeting link. Recordings of many of our previous online programs are available on the club's YouTube channel.

Image of the Month
Why I liked the image.
I chose "Honeycomb Skyline" as the image of the month, because I was instantly attracted to the curves, lines, and glow of the honeycomb pattern. My eyes were drawn to the city lights, made me wish I were there. I loved everything about this image, well done! – Diane
About my image.
Chicago is a city of architecture. Truly a photographer’s amusement park with endless photo opportunities. It is one of my favorite places to photograph. The Honeycomb structure (officially named the “People's Gas Education Pavilion”) is located about a mile north of downtown in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. This image is a result of combining three exposures. For those interested, I used a Canon 5DM2, (16-35mm lens at 19mm), F8, ISO 100. I would love to organize a Chicago outing together sometime in the future. - Stephen
