Founded in 1957, the Arundel Camera Club exists to promote the art, science, and education in all aspects and fields of photography. We meet at 7:00pm every Thursday evening from September through May. Meetings alternate with programs of informative speakers (educational, technical, how-to, tutorials, challenges, etc.) and photographic competitions. Twice a month we hold informative programs by guest speakers and club members on topics of photographic interest. We also hold tabletop and portrait nights to educate club members and for a chance to practice. Meetings are open to the public, but only dues paying members may enter competitions and vote on club business. Once a month, we schedule a field trip. This is a chance for us to get out and practice, learn, and have fun. We often go out to local gardens, wildlife refuges, events, buildings, cities, etc.
We meet in person at the Severna Park Baptist Church located at 506 Benfield Rd, Severna Park, MD 21146.
Annual dues are Individual $40.00. Family $40.00 first family member and $20.00 for each additional family member. Dues are half price from January through May. Only paid members in good standing can participate in monthly contests and vote on club business.
Twice a month we hold photographic contests. Typically, on the second Thursday of the month we hold our digital contests. On the fourth Thursday of the month, we hold our monochrome and color print contests.
We publish a monthly newsletter with information on upcoming and recent club events. educational articles, and the winning images from our monthly competitions. This is a one-stop place for current information on the club.
In addition to the club website, we use a mailing list, FaceBook, YouTube, and Instagram.
Our club is completely run by volunteers. Much appreciation goes to all our volunteers.
We have had many amazing photographers in our club over the years. We try to capture their legacies by hosting information on them and displaying some of their photography.
The club puts on an exhibit about once per year. Before the pandemic we put on exhibits in the Glen Burnie Library. We have had two exhibits at the Woods Memorial Church.
