Camera Club Celebrates 50th Anniversary and upcoming events
The City of Laguna Woods recognized the Camera Club upon its 50th anniversary with a special commendation, Click here to see photo of the commendation.
Photographs are memories. They are recordings of family. They are memories of places we’ve been. They are displays of our skills. The Village is fortunate to have a club that helps us capture, edit, preserve, and share these memories.
The Camera Club is one of the very first clubs to be organized in this community. Steps were taken to organize it in 1965, and it was formally established in 1966. Since that time it has continuously offered showcases, workshops, classes, and other services for the benefit of its members and the Village.
While many members are experts and some belong to the Photographic Society of America, many others are beginning and intermediate photographers. The club has an excellent newsletter, Cameraderie, which offers a great deal of advice and articles of interest. Information including a membership application and high scoring photos are available on the club’s outstanding web site at lhcameraclub.com.
