Our meetings will start on the 3rd Monday in September with our Social.  Continue to check in on the Club Meeting link for updates to the 2021/2022 meeting schedule.

*Important*
Our planning meetings were held in August for the Churchville Photography Club’s 2021 – 2022 club year.  During our summer, we get input from our members on contest themes, programs/speakers and general suggestions. 
We have been contacting our selected speakers and the meeting schedule may flex in the next few months due to their availability.   You will need to keep checking in on our Club Schedule.

President's 2021-2022 Message:   Welcome to the website of the Churchville Photography Club. Although we have all been challenged by the global pandemic, I think we can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. And you know how important light is to photographers.

This year, we attempted to start hybrid meetings with live meetings in the Nature Center along with a projected Zoom meeting for those not willing or able to attend in person. Due to the development of COVID variants, we had to discontinue the Nature Center meetings. For those club members who are not familiar with Zoom meetings are encouraged to do some computer research to learn more. Zoom meeting links will be sent out to all members a few days before the meeting.  Anyone interested in joining the Club who would like to see one of our meetings before joining please send an email to info@churchvillephoto.club to receive the link.

Our club is focused on making the upcoming club year the best it can be, using tools and experiences that we’ve learned over the last year and a half. We are scheduling outstanding guest speakers that will present programs that will inspire and educate us in many facets of photography, including Architecture, Still Life, Natural Beauty, Landscapes and even how to use your mobile phone to make excellent images. We will offer club critiques to get guidance and ideas for, perhaps, improving an image that may seem just a little bit off.

We will also have two Fifteen Minutes of Fame meetings. Each of those meetings will feature the work of four of our members. It helps us to get to know the style and interests of our photographers, especially newer members of our club.

And of course, we have our Fall Social and Holiday Social where we hope to gather and socialize as conditions permit. Selected images are shown by members to show some of their favorite work.

COVID: The biggest elephant in the room is the lingering problem of Covid (and variants thereof) which has caused our meetings to be Zoom only last year. This year, we attempted to start hybrid meetings to include live meetings in the Nature Center along with a projected Zoom meeting for those not willing or able to attend in person. This unfortunately did not last long.  We needed to, once again, resort to the ZOOM only meetings.
Should we be allowed to open the Nature Center in the future, you will be notified.  For in-house meetings, we will take all necessary precautions with our live attendance in the Nature Center to make things safe.  We need to insist that all attending live meetings be vaccinated for the safety of all concerned.

We hope you join us for what promises to be a fun and educational ride this club year. The club officers and I will do our best to make this year a great experience for all.
