Photo Adventures Camera Club

THE Camera Club in Port Charlotte

The Photo Adventures Camera Club, Port Charlotte's Camera Club has been an active and thriving hub of for photographers since 2003. Among the original group were experienced professionals and amateurs alike, with a common goal of creating a venue to share their knowledge, information, techniques and critiques. We share an interest in all forms of photography, including color and monochrome prints and digital images. Subject matter varies widely, including but not limited to Nature, Landscapes and Portraits.

BEAR WITH US! - Update June 3, 2020

We're in the process of updating our website so you might find a few things incomplete or some links that don't go anywhere.    We're working on it everyday and hope to have things looking and working great very soon!

MEETING SCHEDULE

Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month (throughout the year) from 7:15 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The 2nd meeting in the months of November and December is cancelled due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.

Because of the COVID virus, we started meeting online, on Zoom.  Once things are safe, we’ll resume meeting at our normal location.

CLUB DUES

Club dues are an affordable $30 per year. The year runs from January to December.

For existing members, the dues are due the first meeting in January. Club

Dues cover a variety of expenses to operate the club, the largest of which is to bring in experienced teachers and speakers who always have awesome information and tips!

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

Seriously! We’re a camera club. We sincerely want every level of photographer to come join us! Novices to Pros.  The joy is in the sharing and learning.

Our meetings and field trips almost always have segments and programs which speak to every level of photographer.  We’re all in it for the same reason, for fun and learning this incredible art & skill.

THE FUN PART

This photography community is like no other.  We love to share. We love to teach. We love to go out together, and we’ll even take you to that secret spot (that’s not so secret) to get the shots the pros get.  Oh, and we’ve got some pros to show and help you!  Some are leaders in the Florida Camera Club Council, some are Judges for the council, even a photo workshop owner who loves to teach!

Most of us are retired (or working on it) but many of us have been shooting photos for many years and have just recently “gotten the bug”.  If you’re in that group, come join us and you’ll leave with a project and a desire to return, show and tell!



Photo Adventurers Monthly Photo Projects

We have projects each month to have fun and help us work on specific areas of photography.
  • JULY

    Fireworks or FIRE!  The project theme for the month is Fireworks.

    Fireworks are a blast to photograph!  Most are taken on a tripod using about a 1 second exposure.  Show us your best at the first meeting in July!

    Leading Lines are one of the best methods of composition, using a line of the image to lead you to the main subject.
