The mis­sion of the St. Mary’s County Cam­era Club is to “pro­mote the art of pho­tog­ra­phy as a hobby, pro­vid­ing a fo­rum for ex­chang­ing knowl­edge of the sub­ject and in­spir­ing pho­tog­ra­phers to­ward im­prov­ing their art.”

The club’s monthly pro­gram works to meet that goal via meet­ings held on the first three Wed­nes­days of the month. An ed­u­ca­tional lec­ture or demon­stra- tion is held on first Wed­nes­days, a mem­ber based cri­tique ses­sion on sec­ond Wed­nes­days, and an in­tra-club com­pe­ti­tion on third Wed­nes­days.

The club also hosts photo out­ings to nearby lo­ca­tions, and some­times dis­plays mem­bers’ work at nearby gal­leries. Each Septem­ber, the club of­fi­ci­ates the pho­tog­ra­phy divi­sion at the St. Mary’s County Fair.

Guests are wel­come to at­tend meet­ings. Po­ten­tial vis­i­tors can learn more about the club at www.sm­ccc.org or join the club’s Face­book page at www. face­book.com/groups/StMarysCoun­tyCam­er­aClub. Meet­ing lo­ca­tions vary, so it is best to check Face­book or the web­site be­fore at­tend­ing.
