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. Our meeting location is the Gateway facility in downtown Racine. The address is 1001 S. Main St, Racine, WI 53403 (just south of downtown Racine). 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.

Our Next Meeting

Our next meeting WAS scheduled for Thursday, April 9th, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated closings and restrictions, it has been canceled. As of now, we do not know if we will be meeting in May.

We will update this page and our Facebook page with additional information on future meetings as soon as it becomes available.

There is a large parking lot to the east side of the three buildings (between the buildings and Lake Michigan). Enter in the doors in the center of the Racine building off of the parking lot, take a left at the first hallway and go to the end of the hall.

Member Highlights

If one of your passions is photographing nature, we have an outstanding web site for you. Gerry DeBoer, one of our former members, has created a great website, "The Wandering Naturalist" that you will want to check out. (Former member because the commute from Colorado to come to our metings` is just a bit longer than he is willing to make)

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.
