Eastside Camera Club
Mt. Clemens, Michigan

The Eastside Camera Club (ECC) is an informal and relaxed club for anyone interested in photography in Macomb County or the surrounding areas of Michigan. Members have all levels of skill, interest and equipment.

Meetings:Our meetings begin at 6:30 PM on the 4th Thursday of the month at the Mt. Clemens Public Library, 150 Cass Ave, in Mt Clemens, Michigan. The meetings usually consist of about 30 minutes of club business and news, 30 minutes of education usually geared toward the latest software for post-processing, and an hour or so of viewing photographs on a projection screen which members submitted as detailed here. This is a great way to improve your photography since your photographs are seen by a friendly group of fellow photographers. As each photograph is shown, it is accompanied by comments, praise, compliments and/or suggestions for improvement. Submission of photos is not required if you'd prefer not to. Submitted photos are deleted after each meeting. After the meeting a few members typically go out for a snack at a local restaurant.
Activities:We also organize a club outing to an interesting place to photograph every couple of months. Attendance is optional, of course. We hold an annual print competition once per year with a cash prize for the best black-and-white and best color print.
Membership:Everyone age 16 or older is welcome to attend one or two meetings as a test drive, then join the club for an annual membership fee in order to begin showing photos at meetings, entering the print competition, attending club outings, and attending our annual pizza party during December.
Contact:You can find us on Flickr and Facebook, or send an email to Glenn.

We welcome you to attend a club meeting and see how much fun it would be to become a member.

 

Here are some recent photos created by our club members, and here is how members can add their photos to this display.
