About Us

Welcome to our Web site!

antique_camera.jpgThe Chatham Camera Club is a 80 year old Chatham-Kent, Ontario Canada based Photography Club, and a long time member of the Canadian Association of Photographic Arts (CAPA). We actively interact with other Clubs and National organizations to promote and further the Art of Photography in our community. We judge and promote local photographic contests as well as National submissions by other Ontario Clubs and hold seminars to help educate and encourage the enjoyment of photography.

In 2006, with the generous assistance of the Trillium Foundation we transitioned from a film and slide based Club to one primarily focused on Digital Cameras and technology. Although slides, film and print still play a role in our Club all competitions and photo exchanges with other Clubs are now done through E-mail and the Internet. Our new digital projection equipment has enhanced our meetings, workshops and presentations significantly.

As a result of the new wave of digital cameras and technology our Club has tripled in size in the last 12 months with virtually all members having converted to Digital Cameras. If you are reading this because you are interested in Digital Photography or would like to know how to use that new camera, we encourage you to come to our meetings or Photo Outings to see what we are all about.

In 2008, with backing from CAPA, the Trillium Foundation supported us again with a grant to purchase additional equiptment to support the Club and our role in the community.

Please feel free to contact us through the contacts link if you have any questions about the Club that we can help you with. From September through May, we meet at Evangel Community Church, 76 Sandys St. Chatham, at 7:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the Month.

Please refer to our Meeting Schedule link for meeting topics and outing dates.

We look forward to seeing you!

Sincerely,
Carson Plant, President 2017/2018
