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!


GRCC is currently on summer recess. Meetings and competition are not held during July and August. We hope to resume in person meetings beginning in September, if the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic restrictions permit. Because of the uncertainty of the pandemic, decisions regarding the if, when, and where will not be made by the board until late in August. Please check back here for further information.


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 schedule conflict, 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. Check our Events/News page for meeting location. 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).


Please refer to the Membership Manual for a full description of the categories, rules, and procedures of competition.

Why I liked the image.

The beautiful pink and white blossoms caught my eye. She has captured intricate detail in each flower petal and chosen a nice diagonal direction for the branches. The rest of the photo is very nicely softened allowing the main blossoms to become front and center in this image. – Jeanne

About my image.

Dogwood is one of my favorite trees. This beautiful pink Dogwood is at Frederik Meijer Gardens, in the Grace Jarecki Seasonal Display Greenhouse. I shot this with my Sony A6000, f/4.5, 50mm, ISO 200, 1/400 seconds, edited in Elements Raw Editor, Elements 12, and finished up in Topaz Studio for a more artistic look. - Diane
