The Sierra Camera Club sees its purpose as sustaining and promoting the art and science of photography as a vehicle for communication, appreciation for the large and small wonders of the world, mutual learning, and skills development. To this end, the club meets monthly to socialize and conduct competitions among members judged by highly credentialed photographers offering constructive critique in the categories of nature, landscape, travel, creative and general photography.
It also holds special seminars by expert photographers aimed at expanding members’ skill sets and expertise. In 2016, the SCC created the North American International Exhibition, a highly successful annual online photo show and competition in which photographers from around the world participate.
The SCC was founded in Sacramento in 1936 by 17 photographers and grew to 80-100 members over time, currently representing a wide geographic area from Vacaville and Fairfield to Lincoln and Cool. It has always embraced the constantly evolving tools that have transformed the processes of photography, providing many avenues for expanding its members’ creativity and skills. The club joined the Photographic Society of America in 1946 and was recently honored for its 75 years of continuous membership and support.
The exhibit in this room showcases recent photographic works by the current membership. Visit www.sierracameraclubsac.com to browse additional excellent photography and find out more about the club. And visit the “Join” page if you would like to become a member!
