Welcome to the Gateway Camera Club
Our goals are to share ideas, knowledge, and insight;
to help improve the skills and abilities of our members; and to have
some fun while enjoying photography.
We recognize photography is changing, growing and with
ever-emerging technologies, more exciting than ever! Gateway was one
of the first local camera clubs to embrace digital photography and, as a
result, we have some very knowledgeable digital photographers. Many
award-winning members of Gateway Camera Club honed their talents and
abilities through the mentoring they found at Gateway.
Our club is very active and we meet on most Tuesdays from September to
June from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Want to compete, learn and share? Check
out our exciting schedule. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
Just stop in and introduce yourself. We hope you'll soon find an aspect
of Gateway that fits your interests. Please browse our website, learn
more about what we do, and enjoy. And remember, enthusiasm is catchy.
Come and catch some! Our Membership Information Page provides details on our club along with a link to our membership application.

September Competition - Open for Submissions - Wednesday August 10th
Education Night - Tuesday September 6th at 7:30pm - Jeff Newcomer presents Working with the Light
One of the key skills contributing to successful landscape photography is the ability to work with the prevailing light and not to try to force your images against what nature provides. The Golden hours, overcast, fog, bright overhead sunlight, extremes of weather and the night sky all offer their own attractions. It is the glory of shooting in New England that we can often experience many or all of them in the same day. In New England there is never a bad time to go out shooting as long as you accept the challenge of embracing what nature provides.
Photography in the natural world requires a special kind of seeing which demands time and patience. It is well worth the effort whether or not a camera is in hand, but occasionally, we are granted the additional gift of an image which can capture a piece of that remarkable experience.
Program Night - September 13th at 7:30pm - Mike Milicia – “Lessons Learned From 11 Years of (Mostly) Bird Photography"
Mike will present a selection of his photographs accompanied by commentary intended to inform, entertain, and inspire. The main goal is to provide some insight into the technical, artistic, and logistical challenges involved in the image creation process. Questions will be taken throughout in the hope of making the session more interactive and gearing it toward the specific interests of the audience.
