Welcome to Charlotte Camera Club! We are a growing, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities and ways to participate.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month except the months of November and December (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. We normally meet at St. John's Episcopal Church at 1623 Carmel Road, in Room 205, but are having virtual meetings during the pandemic. Members and guests are invited to arrive a little early to socialize before the meeting begins.

Before that he earned his living as a professional photographer. Now he is combining those two experiences to teach fine art photography in both digital and film formats.
