Welcome to South Towns Camera Club (STCC)
You've come to the right place if you'd like to learn the art of photography!
Our members, beginners to professionals, have a wide range of photographic interests and skills.
Accomplished photographers present instructional programs and critique our monthly competitions to help members improve their skills.
Visitors are always welcome to attend our meetings at no charge.
NEXT VIRTUAL PROGRAM:
May 6, 2021 - 7 pm
Projected Image of the Year Competition
Our semi-monthly meetings alternate between competitions and instructional programs. Both are great opportunities for inspiration and learning. Past programs have covered wide-ranging topics like portraiture, nature, macro, travel and night photography as well as post-processing techniques using a variety of editing software.
Competitions are popular and members are encouraged, but not required, to participate. Listening to a professional photographer's critique of member's submissions is a great way to learn and improve your own skills.
Photographic field trips are organized periodically and offer another great opportunity to develop your skills, share knowledge and spend time with a great group of people who share your interest in photography. These trips are designed for photographers of all levels.
Meetings are normally held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, September to May, at 7:00 p.m., at the Hamburg Community Center, 107 Prospect Ave, Hamburg, NY. (South of Buffalo, NY)
