The Gateway Camera Club (GCC) is made up of beginner, intermediate, and advanced amateur photographers. There is no restriction on who may join the club. While we do have monthly competitions in digital format, we are a friendly club that strives to learn new techniques, share knowledge with all members, and practice the art of photography with enthusiasm. GCC is a non-profit organization. We hold meetings starting at 7:30 PM on the first through fourth Tuesday of each month, from September through mid June (with meetings only the first 2 Tuesday of the months of December and June). Currently, GCC meets in the "St. Andrews Church", 3 Maple Street, Framingham, MA. Guests are always welcome!
The Gateway Camera Club was founded in 1962 by a professional photographer by the name of Art Jacques. Over the years, Gateway has seen its share of transformations. Gateway has gone from being a club made up entirely of slide photographers and print makers to a club that is made up entirely of digital photographers. Gateway Camera Club has been at the forefront of digital photography, being the first club in the area to devote one meeting per month to the education of digital photography and post processing.
