The Racine Camera Club

Welcome to the Racine Camera Club. We are a group of photographers in the Racine, WI area with a wide range of skills, from beginners to advanced amateurs and a few professionals.

We all share a common love and passion for photography, whether it be landscape, portrait, macro, action, still life, night or even astrophotography. Images created by our members can be found all over this website. All of the images in the random banner at the top of our pages were created by RCC members. We present galleries of images from our competitions and outings, as well as some members' personal galleries of images.



You can also find us on Facebook:








Our Meetings

The club meets the second Thursday of every month, September through June, from 7PM to 9PM. Starting with the February 12, 2015 meeting, our new meeting location will be the Gateway iMET facility in Sturtevant. If you are not familiar with the facility, there is a map at the bottom of this page.


Attending & Joining

We invite anyone who has an interest in photography to attend our meetings, no matter what your skill, knowledge or experience level might be. You do not have to be a paying member to attend our meetings. However, you do have to be member to compete in our semi-annual competitions or to hold an elected office in the club.


Related Organizations

RCC is a member club of the Wisconsin PSA, which is a chapter of the Photographic Society of America (PSA). We are also a member club of Wisconsin Area Camera Club Organization (WACCO).






A Special Note:
We've had the wonderful pleasure to have experienced an increase in our membership, along with starting up some new programming. Unfortunately, this has meant that it has become a tight fit meeting at the Racine Arts Council (RAC). RAC has been our home for over ten years and we have been the beneficiaries of their warmth, hospitality and facility.

In order to accomodate our growth, we have found a new location for our meetings. Gateway has a facility in Sturtevant called the iMET and we have arranged to use their facility for our meetings starting in February. For those of you unfamiliar with the facilities, a map to the location can be found below.
 
Our Next Meeting

Our next meeting is Thursday, February 9th, at 7PM, at the iMet Center.

Besides our Challenge Of the Month competition, "Winter", (make sure you get your entries in by the deadline), wr're going to have a group discussion on workflow and backups. If time permits, Tom Leih will be giving a presentation on Photoshop layers.









Member Highlights



If one of your passions is photographing nature, we have an outstanding web site for you. Gerry DeBoer, one of our members, has created a great website, "The Wandering Naturalist" that you will want to check out.

Besides a blog about his photography, he has created a map that contains hundreds of birding sites, national wildlife refuges, state parks and forests, nature study and observation sites, lighthouses and general photographic points of interest.

So far, most of the locations are in the US and Canada, but he is expanding it to include locations around the world.

If you spend more than a few minutes on the site, you will probably have your next several vacations planned out.
