Welcome to Charlotte Camera Club! We are a growing, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities and ways to participate.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month except the months of November and December (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. We meet at St. John's Episcopal Church at 1623 Carmel Road, in Room 205. Members and guests are invited to arrive a little early to socialize before the meeting begins.

Next Meeting: Thursday, December 11 - Scavenger Hunt Reveal & Social


Please join us on December 11 for our Scavenger Hunt reveal where we show and discuss the results of the hunt.


A favorite project for members, the Scavenger Hunts is a challenge to get creative and find all 10 items on the assignment list. Interpretation is entirely up to each photographer. Remember, no pulling from your old files - we want you to get out and shoot with these subjects in mind.

Check out the Scavenger Hunt for the list of items and more information. Images can be sent to contest@charlottecameraclub.org by Monday, December 8.

Good luck!
