It might seem hard to believe, but summer is right around the corner, with all the rain we have had it really does feel like we skipped spring all together, but with summer comes fair season.  With fair season quickly approaching, for our General Meeting this month we are going to explore our club’s participation in the Thurston County Fair.

We will start our evening off with Dale Easley, the OCC Fair Coordinator, discussing what the club’s official involvement is with the fair, what the guidelines are for entering the fair as well as discussing how our members can help during fair week.

After Dale’s presentation, we will dig a little deeper into what it takes to enter the fair, how to select images to enter as well some “best practices” for the images that you do enter.

I will be bringing prints that I have entered into the fair over the last few years, and if you have prints that you have entered I am sure that everyone would like to see those as well.  If you do bring prints though, please insure that they are the actual prints, with any associated awards you may have received, as this is not a general photo sharing session.

As a final bit of housekeeping, our clubs travelling prints have make their way back to Olympia and we will be presenting the images that will be moving on to the NWCC show this fall for final judging.  For those that are not going forward this will be the first opportunity for you to pick your prints up.

The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.

Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests.  You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests.  You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.

We have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels.  Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events.  Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.


You are invited to attend any and all of our meetings.  See the calendar for details.

The Olympia Camera Club is a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
