Welcome!

The Portland Camera Club has welcomed photography enthusiasts of all levels since 1899. Meetings are held on Mondays from September through May at the Woodfords Club, 179 Woodford Street in Portland (click for map).

We meet to display and discuss photography in a friendly atmosphere. Visitors are always welcome (only members may submit images in competitions). To learn more about us, visit our About the Club page. For a schedule of club events, visit our Club Calendar.

News & Events

Monday 1/8 at 7pm:  Discussion: Photopainting  It's not about flashlights, it's about using software like Topaz Impressions, Jixipix Artista Impresso or Photoshop itself to alter photographs with painterly effects. Dave Higgins is a master at this, and many of us have been experimenting with it. Submit one of your favorites and be prepared to talk about your technique and artistic choices. If you'd rather bring in a light painting image you can do that instead! When you are ready to submit your image, go to www.portlandcameraclub.org/upload.html.
Mid-Year Checkup:  Before tonight's photopainting discussion, we will hold a mid-year check-up. It's an opportunity for the members to offer questions, comments or criticisms about the program so far this year, or any aspect of the club's activities. What's going well? How can we do better? Let the president and board know so we can make any necessary course corrections for the remainder of the year.
