The Coastal Camera Club

 The Coastal Camera Club finds it roots in the F-Stop Club. It was a small group that came together to share a love of photography and was the first of its type in the area. It ended up disbanding, but in 2000, a group of ten from the club formed the Coastal Camera Club.

In the early days, the focus was on sharing critiques of each other’s images, participating in outings and exchanging knowledge of photography. As the years progressed and more people retired to the area who shared a love of photography and sought education on the topic, the club grew. 

As time progressed, the Club incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. 

Today the Coastal Camera Club numbers over 240 members, has two meetings a month from September to May (one educational, one competition). During the summer, members may hold casual classes and small Special Interest Group meetings.  The Club members also assist other charitable organizations so that our members can better their skills while serving the community.
