The Chester County Camera Club serves as a forum for photographers, from beginners to advanced amateurs and professionals. The Club currently has about 130 active members.
The Chester County Camera Club meets the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at Westminster Presbyterian Church in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Some club meetings and competitions are streamed on Zoom. The first meeting features a guest speaker. The second is a competition judged by individuals who are not club members. Members' Forums are also held monthly and feature club members presenting topics on which they are knowledgeable. Check the Schedule page for dates.
Mentor Meetings, in which club members mentor others on a variety of subjects, are held once each month. Check the Schedule page for dates. (Note: Mentors and Mentees should have their cameras, camera manuals, and computers with post-processing software for the meetings.)
The club year runs from September through June.
We hold outings for members to get together and take photos at exciting venues around the region. With the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, careful consideration is given to ensure participants will be safe. The club also offers occasional bus trips to other destinations, such as New York, Washington, or Annapolis. While these have been on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are considering offering trips again.

Historically, the club has offered 3-5 weekend workshops throughout the year. Past workshops have included Matting and Mounting, Indoor Photography Creativity, Lighting for Portrait Photography, and The Art of Seeing. If workshops can safely be conducted during the pandemic, they will also be listed on the Schedule page.
