Welcome and thanks for visiting our site!
We've started a new season for the Staten Island Camera Club. Our First Competition of the season will be held on Sept 27th at 8 PM in the Harbor Room at Sung Harbor Cultural Center on Staten Island. We are expecting new members to join us and become active members. I know we all are excited about starting another competition season and make it a successful one. That will happen with your participation.
For first timers that's Building "G" and can be accessed from the Black Door behind building "G" which is Halfway down Shinbone Alley. The Harbor Room is down the first floor corridor and is the first door on your left opposite the elevator.
We not only hold competitions, but will also showcase positive learning experiences through several Meet-Ups. Whether you choose to participate in our Image Critique Meet-up or our Photography Meet-Up group we promise to make the time spent a fruitful and engaging experience.
As an affiliated Photography Club we are dedicated to providing our members with entertaining and educational programming to suit every photographic passion.
Like most photographers, we enjoy taking and sharing our photographs. And like most enthusiasts, we are always trying to improve our photographic skills.

We feature Black & White and Color Digital Images and Prints, Or join us at any of our other photographic events, Meet-Ups and or activities.
Membership matters. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional photographer, joining a photography club is one of the best ways to improve your skills. The club can also be a good venue for meeting people who share the same interest as yours. You will not only form new friendships, you’ll also have fun while learning new things about a craft that you love.
Aside from choosing the right Club, there are other essential elements that you have to consider before joining a camera club. In order to get the most out of your membership, you should look for a club that offers the best benefits for its members – whether it is in the field of learning or in terms of opportunities. Also, you should consider whether or not you’ll participate in club activities, outings and workshops. Being just a passive member robs everyone of the very healthy experience of sharing all of your passion and zeal for the craft.
Common activities carried out by photography clubs include regular meetings, exhibits, guest speaker nights, workshops and seminars, competitions, club outings and field trips. There are also clubs that prefer to build inter-club associations in order to create a stronger photography community. Like ours, a majority (if not all) of clubs require a membership fee or an annual subscription, which will then serve as their main means of funding regular events (like meetings and workshops). For special events like exhibits and competitions, some clubs usually ask for help from sponsors.
