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! Our Membership Information Page provides details on our club along with a link to our membership application.

Upcoming Events - All Meetings are on Zoom Until Further Notice
Competition Deadline - Sept 19th at 11:59 PM
Program Night - Sept 21st - From Capture to Print: The Art of Black and White Photography presented by Lewis Katz
By first looking at some
black and white images from iconic photographers we will discuss the reasons to convert
to monochrome: timelessness, contrast, mood, pattern
and emotion. Using personal imagery the black and white conversion process will be demonstrated using both Lightroom as well as Nik software. Why you should always shoot in color and then convert to monochrome and the importance of the color channels in the conversion process. The emotional impact of black and white versus color will also be discussed. How to create more dramatic and powerful images using contrast as well as creative composition. This presentation is an unique combination of the “howto” with the “why and when” which sets it apart from other programs in regards to black and white
Bio: Lewis had a camera in his hand from the age of 14. Inspired by his father he began to explore photography more seriously in high school with a darkroom in the basement. Fast forward many years to his life in Baltimore and his joining the Baltimore Camera Club. Further inspired by his peers Lewis became an award winning photographer and photography teacher. He currently teaches at Johns Hopkins University, the Community College of Baltimore Country, Capital Photography Center out of DC as well as at the Baltimore Camera Club. He lives for the aha! moments which only teaching can provide. Website: https://www.lewiskatzphotography.com/
