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 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!

January Competition Deadline -  Sunday December 31st at 11:59 PM - Theme - Intentional Camera Movement

ICM is the deliberate movement of your camera in any direction--vertical, horizontal, left, right, zig zag, any motion you can think of that produces an abstract image where the subject may not be recognizable to the viewer. The motion is different from panning where the objective is to clearly capture a subject in motion.  The end result for this theme cannot be created by panning, in Photoshop or other post-processing software.

Education Night - January 2nd - "Visual Design Techniques for Creating Stunning Nature Images" presented by Ian Plant

Program Night - Zoom - January 23rd - "More Than A Pretty Picture" presented by Karen Hutton

This presentation is all about creating signature photographic work by infusing it with your own unique artistic voice. Details:

What does it mean to "find your artistic voice"? 
Where do you look within yourself? 
How do you practice? 
How do you choose which gear to use?
How do you know when you've found it? 

Confusing? Don't worry, you're not alone. All these questions (and more!) swirl in most people's heads when the "artistic voice" topic comes up. We'll explore the gamut and get you headed in the right direction!

BIO:  Karen Hutton is an award-winning Landscape and Travel Photographer, Professional Fujifilm X-Photographer, Artist, Speaker, Author, Educator. 
A lifetime of creating photographically began as a child, after a transformational vision of light. Now her “artist’s paintbrush” is a camera, which not coincidentally utilizes light and time as its painterly medium. She's had one in her hands her entire life.
In her words: "I believe that art is love made visible. That Awe is a prime emotion given to us by the Creator for its power of transformation. And that the more we experience it, the happier + lighter we become. I believe in discernment, truth, wisdom, strong artistic choices, love and the power of uplifting others."

Adoring fans + customers call her “Pure JOY, LIGHT & absolute FUN!”, “An inspirational gem” and "Incredibly artistic. Captivatingly genius. World class!”

Photographer's Event List

Buzz is creating an events of interest to photographers list.  This is intended to be an interactive list with any member sending Buz an event that they've learned about.  The event can be anything that you think would be of interest to photographers.  These could be larger regional events or small home town celebrations of some kind.   Any theme might be a good event:  specialty sports (nat'l leagues, we already know about), state and local fairs and festivals, flowers and gardens, historic, special visiting exhibits at museums, and events that defy categorization.  As you send Buz events,  he will add to the list and send out periodic updated e-mails. 

All Season  Car Shows  Many, many local and regional motor vehicle related events, weekdays and weekends.  Contact Buz for info.




GCC has established two Instagram hashtags to promote our club member's pictures.  These are as follows:
