6:30 p.m. – Capital High School

Our speaker for the April General Meeting will be Gary Ouellette.

Gary Ouellette from Olympia, WA is a second generation French Canadian raised in New Hampshire. After studying Forestry in college, Gary served 33 years in the Army with his last assignment bringing him to Washington in 1999. Gary has been actively pursuing photography since he first joined the Army in the early 70’s and plans on doing it as long as his finger can trigger a shutter release.

Gary has been volunteering at Paradise, Mount Rainier for the National Park Service (NPS) as a Meadow Rover for about 8 years.   His presentation will focus on what it means to be a Meadow Rover, and his photos will reflect some of his experiences on the trail as well as the learnings and respect for nature that he has acquired as a result of spending time on the Mountain. He encourages you to bring your favorite photos of the Mountain to share and hopes to spend some time together talking about your experiences photographing this beautiful landmark too.

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).
